12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled what appears to be October 10, 2013.

A: Pours very dark appearing black in the glass with a khaki brown head on top. Fairly quick to dissipate it leaves a ring around the edge of the glass. Leaves some spots of lacing on the glass.

S: Very rich aroma that initially permeates of molasses and roasted malt. Giving it a swirl yields a much different aroma which reminds me of a cheese cellar. A bit of smokiness in there as well.

T: Nice flavor going on here, as with the aroma it is quite rich. A healthy dose of roasted malts is complimented by a light smoke flavor. This one is hitting half a year old so its certainly mellow and the flavors have melted together it seems.

M: Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel. Very easy drinking taking into account the ABV. Certainly isnt hot on the mouthfeel, just warming after it goes dow.

Overall this is a solid offering from Dark Horse and a good start to the holiday stout series. Very robust and rich flavor that proves to be one hell of an oatmeal stout.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pitch black body, with a dense, creamy chocolatey head, recedes to a small ring at the glass edge.

S: Earthy malts dominate and crowd out other aromas, hints of roasted barley and chocolates. One-dimensional

T: Intense roasted malt character, with smoke and burnt molasses. Hints of dark fruits lay underneath. Also, a hint of Coca-cola, maybe? Roasted flavors carry through to the end, with a clear tobacco flavor as well, not a clean stout...and no oatmeal that can be detected.

M: Medium to full bodied. Carbonation is sharp, but light in volume. Silky smooth feel, slight dryness.

O: Label says oatmeal, but doesn't have the character of an oatmeal. The beer looked awesome coming out of the bottle. But, then when you get it into it, it is just too robust, with some very bold aromas and flavors, especially the tobacco character. Nothing is subtle in this brew. Something is off. It isn't terrible, but it isn't really very good either.
