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.

12oz bottle poured into nonic. This beer is opaque black with a quarter inch of light brown head that settles to a thin ring. Minimal lacing. The aroma is carried by roasted malts and coffee, plus creamy lactose sugar and a hint of milk chocolate. It has a subdued vanilla cream sweetness that rolls in after a strong wave of coffee, molasses, and roasted malt bitterness. Medium-light body and a thin mouthfeel that are disappointing; soft carbonation and a long roasty finish that are quite nice.

Pours darker than I expected, deep dark chocolate color. Almost no head, stronger chocolate in the nose than I anticipated, but not a truly strong chocolate smell. Taste is of chocolate that is slightly sweet, with some maltiness in the background. Reminds me of Boulder Beers' Shake, only this is it's older more intense brother. Imperial Stoutish without the coffee nor the higher alcohol. I could drink a number of these very easily. I will buy again and suggest those who haven't tried it, to seek it out.

Pours a nice deep black with no light getting through. There's a nice dark brown head that comes with it and settles down quickly, leaving some oily lacing. The aroma is big rich malt, with hints of chocolate and coffee. The taste is a little light, missing the big rich flavors of the aroma but does have a nice light hops finish. The body is also a little light, even for a milk stout, but it has almost no carbonation, so it's got that going for it.

A: Pours deep black with a few tan bubbles but no real "head" to speak of.

s: Light aroma. It's chocolaty and malty with subtle vanilla notes. Proper "stout" stuff. 

T: Not too complex, but well rounded. Chocolate shines through on a smokey background. Coffee and a malt presence are there, but nothing too strong. It's just not exciting at all. It does hide it's alcohol well, though.

F: Slightly too thin, almost watery. Well carbonated, but really no body.

O: I'm enjoying it (kinda), but it's not really making an impression on me.
