Dark Horse Too Cream Stout:

Now THIS is what I expect when a stout is served!

Blindfolded - you would never guess another style. Thick and creamy mouthfeel, with a strong espresso edge. Blindfold off, you find exactly what you are tasting - am opaque black serving topped with a mocha foam head.

Strong enough to stand up to a pairing with a maduro cigar or an Austrian-Hungarian game stew.

A = Beautifully black, absolutely opaque with the dense, forbidden blackness of a black hole from which not even light escapes.
S = espresso charges up the nostrils
T = deeply espresso with a bourbon edge
M = Thick and creamy - thoughts turn to adding this to my bathwater...
O = This is EASILY in my top five Stouts.

Beautiful job Dark Horse!

4.78/5  rDev +22.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

Eye Candy-Used motor oil with creamy brown head settling on the top.

Nose Candy-Plenty of roasted barley, chocolate malts, and the smell of coffee that has been on all morning.

Mouth Candy-A party in your mouth. Roasted barley hits you first and moves quickly to a coffee taste. At the finish the sweet malts and hops combine in perfect harmony to give a very sweet finish; exactly what a sweet stout should do. Body feel is very full and just right for my taste.

Overall this is a great brew. If you can get your hands on one, you won't be disappointed. Thanks to drxandy for this one.

Bottoms up...

Wonderful aroma with a fantastic taste and finish. It pours with a small copper head, if any. It has a very nice coffee middle and the creamy finish is prominant and fantastic! I would expect more of an alcohol finish from an 8% ABV, however the finish made me long for the next taste.

If you like Sam Adams Cream Stout I would highly recommend this beer!

4.72/5  rDev +21%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Allowed to warm to room temp and served in a snifter.

Appearance: Pours as black a black as you ever did see. A thick dark brown head fades to a frothy cap.

Smell: rich roasted malts and berries, bittersweet chocolate caramel molasses and plethora of all around goodness.

Taste: The chocolate is soft and smooth and milky with caramel and a touch of carob with a roasted coffee finish that is simply *magnificent*.

Mouthfeel: sensuous and smooth it slides across the tongue with a medium body and leaves behind a nip of roasty dryness.

Drinkability: This beer really hit the spot. I like a good sweet milk stout and this one is right on the money. Balanced perfectly and a pleasure to drink. If this was available locally I'd have a case soon.

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers!

4.72/5  rDev +21%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass
Pours deep and dark, almost purple, with a beautiful dark tan head of foam
Aroma-Coffee and chocolate malts
Taste-Chocolate/cocoa, roasted coffee w/cream and a subtle smokiness that fades into a smooth, creamy finish.
Overall, a deliscious, smooth and creamy stout, with just a hint of smoky bitterness for balance that would make this beer go great with a grilled steak. 8.0ABV? I couldn't taste it, I wanted to gulp this down it was so smooth.
Get Some!!
