Pours thick and rich. A very dark 1-finger head quickly falls. There's a viscous coating on the glass as it's tipped. The aroma is big and enveloping; full of deep fruity smells. The beers taste is what one might expect of a sip of dessert wine, with dry, burnt-coffee notes on the back end. This is a big stout, and I imagine it would be hard to distinguish from many imperials; quite an accomplishment for a 7.5% libation. Mouthfeel lives up to the name.

Pours a nice light creamy brown head with decent lacing. Smell is chocolate malt, malted milk, roast marshmallows. Taste is subtle chocolate milk, nice smoke presence, with darker chocolate residuals. Overall a very nice stout that is easy to drink.

Smoky flavor that dominates. Only gets to the typical milk stout sweet creaminess on the finish. But too smoky for my taste.

Pours nearly black with a modest cap of brown foam that rapidly settles into a soapy skim. The coloration is gorgeous, and this isn’t the first time I’ve been impressed by the appearance of Dark Horse’s stouts; they know what they’re doing on that front. Simple but pleasant aroma smells of roasted malt and salted caramel with perhaps a hint of brown sugar.

The first thing that stands out to me upon sipping is the beer’s smoothness--it flows across the palate like quicksilver. I can definitely appreciate the cream stout moniker. The flavor is roasty and toasty, along with muted dark chocolate notes that peek through moreso in the finish. The carbonation is medium and the body is just north of light.

Overall, this is an ultra-smooth and drinkable, roasty stout. One of the more sessionable stouts I’ve come across.
