look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

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.
