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!

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.

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!

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.
