4.1/5  rDev +5.1%

Nice looking pour. Really great looking dark head, but it dissipates quickly and doesn't leave much in the way of lacing. Really great nose on this one - roasted creamy dark chocolates. Taste is similar to the nose - lots of roast, bitter chocolate. Not sweet at all; I am not tasting the lactose sweetness I expect in a milk stout. Very imperial stout like in taste and mouth feel. Very creamy, semi-thick brew.

Overall, this is a real solid entry from Dark Horse. Lots of flavor for the palate, and extremely drinkable. The lack of any milkiness in the taste detracts from its overall rating, for me, as that extra milkiness would have made this one stand out, rather than seeming like another imp. stout, albeit an above average imperial.

Pours a deep brown that looks thick and velvetty.
A vigorous pour produced a good size foamy cap, tall and dense. Carb's look light. Aroma is rich, roasted malts, coffee and heavy cream. Drinks pretty thick on the palette. Nice roasted malt flavor, some coffee. Drinks smooth and velvetty although you can notice some grit.
Finishes with a light burnt bitterness thats toned down a notch because of the sweetness.
A good drinking beer with a bold, smooth and sweet taste.

A- black, with a one finger chocolate brown head, very little lacing

S- roasted coffe, touch of smoke, chocolate

T- smell follows the nose closey, although the smoke is more pronounced in the taste, but works well with the roasty coffe notes, finishes like a mocha coffe... Pretty tasty

M- full bodied and creamy, finishes dry, great mouthfeel.

O- another very good stout from dark horse!

3.38/5  rDev -13.3%

Poured into a snifter.

3.0 A: Black. About as black as it gets. Pour yielded only one finger of short lived frothy brown head. No lacing.

3.0 S: Soft, supple roastiness. Tangy lactose and semi-sweet chocolate. Not a lot going on here.

3.5 T: More power than the nose suggests. Moderate roastiness with a touch of char and smoke. Lactose and bittersweet chocolate in healthy proportions. Perhaps a touch of molasses. Not wildly complex, but good.

3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Reasonably creamy with a lightly bitter aftertaste.

3.5 D: Decent, but nothing to write home about.

A - pours pith black with a thin tan head.

S - heavy smoke smell. Roasted and chocolate.

T - taste is lightly smokey at first and and it leaves a nice sweet milk aftertaste in your mouth.

M - medium bodied and light to medium carbonation.

O - love the aftertaste. My favorite part. Pretty good other than that though.

Pours black with a light tan head that dissipates quickly.

Smells of chocolate, roasted malts and has a distinct smokiness. Just a touch of lactose sweetness despite being a milk stout.

Roasty malt at the forefront. Some smoke (maybe a bit too much) before finishing earthy and dry. Again not a lot of lactose to the taste.

A bit thin for my liking with medium carbonation.

Not a big fan of this one. The smoke flavor overwhelms a bit and the good creaminess of the milk stout is missing.

4.13/5  rDev +5.9%

A-Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a lot of light brown head that leaves good lacing.
S-Fairly strong aromas od dark chocolate and coffee. Slightly sweet smelling.
T-Tons of roasted flavor with some bitter chocolate and coffee flavors. There is some sweetness along with a very slight smoke flavor.
M-Medium bodied, fairly strong alcohol warmth, decent carbonation.
Overall, I like this beer. It's maybe a bit strong for a milk stout but the flavors are pretty great. It's nicely balanced, not too malty and sweet and not too roasted and bitter.
