Dark Horse's "One" is an excellent oatmeal stout, rich with roasted malt, yielding characters of chocolate, coffee, toast, burnt sugars, and vanilla. Every bit as impressive as their "Plead the 5th," but at a lower ethanol content, this is surely a stout I will seek out this coming fall.

Pours a 1cm tall head of dark tan to brown-colored foam, made up of small to medium-sized bubbles, creating a . Retention length is less than average, lasting less than a minute in a quick decline to a modest ring around the glass and a small island atop the center of the beer. Body is a dark brown to black color, light showing a slight amber-brown hue. Beer is opaque, no carbonation perceived.

Aroma of roasted malt, charred toast, roasted coffee beans (at times like walking down the grocery isle), brown sugar, and mild vanilla. At several months of age, this is still an excellent-smelling beer.

The overall flavor palate is one of roasted malt that comes across as charred toast, very dark chocolate, and roasted coffee beans, but is never ashen or one-dimensional. Front of palate finds slightly sweet roasted malt, marshmallow-like charred sugars, burnt toast with brown sugar, coffee with cream. Mid-palate of roasted malt, slightly acrid, extremely dark chocolate, roasted coffee beans, vanilla, burnt marshmallow cream, and charred toast. Back of palate features roasted malts, charred marshmallow and toast, roasted coffee beans, slightly acrid dark chocolate, and hints of vanilla. Aftertaste of acrid roasted malt, charred toast, dark chocolate and coffee beans.

Beer is medium to medium-heavy in body with medium-low levels of carbonation. Together with the oats, the beer has a substantial smoothness, heaviness, and creaminess, giving this an impression that it is far larger of a stout than it is. Closes dry, with moderate stickiness on the palate and mild astringency from the roasted malts.
