4.18/5  rDev +11.2%

Bottle is undated, probably 2.5 years old (late 2011). Bottlecap & seal are in great shape. Pours pitch black with a 1/2 finger dark brown, rusty head. Bubbly head dissipated quickly, revealing a viscous, glassy top. Smell is roasted malt, coffee, some bitterness or sourness. Pretty big nose, even when cold. Taste is tangy sweet up-front, reminiscent of berries. This immediately leads to a strong roasted malt flavor: coffee, dark chocolate. Farther back some sweetness, more roast, LOTS of roast. Finish is lots of lingering roast, some hop bitterness too. Mouthfeel is full, way thicker than I would expect, and decent carbonation. I haven't had this beer in a long time, and it exceeded my recollections. It's super-roasty which is this beer's calling card. There is sweetness and bitterness too that gives some complexity, but nothing over-the-top. I need to buy more.

A: Black liquid with a 1 finger head. The head is tan in color and has irregular and larger bubbles. The head did not last too long and thinned out to a film

S: Chocolate and malts.

T: A bit of a bitter start - like bitter chocolate. After that roasted malt flavor and not much else. As it warms there is a bit of sweet to the finish - which is nice.

M: Nice smooth feeling with a slight edge of carbonation. Well balanced and good overall feel.

O: This is just okay. Nothing sticks out to make it worth repeating. I bought several Dark Horse stouts at the same time and so far none of them have been noteworthy.

Bottle purchased from AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a dark black, with a pretty dark brown half inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells like roasted malt and milk chocolate.

The taste is similar. A little light, honestly, but still pretty tasty. Some good roasty flavor, a little bit of chocolate and coffee, and slight smoke.

Medium bodied, but thin for an oatmeal stout. No noticeable alcohol, medium carbonation, pretty drinkable.

Falls a bit short compared to other highly regarded oatmeal stouts, probably wouldn't get again. That being said, I still enjoyed it.
