look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My second of the five winter stouts from Dark Horse Brewing Co. Picked up a single bottle of this from the local beer store.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours an inky jet black colored body with about a finger of dark mocha head. Some spotty mocha lacing, but none really sticks. Looks pretty nice.

S - Smell is comprised of milk chocolate, cream / lactose, coffee bean roastiness, cookie dough / fudgey, & mild dark fruit presence. Maybe a hint of spicing. A pleasant, yet average aroma.

T - Taste follows the aroma - milk chocolate, cream / lactose, dark coffee bean roast / bitterness, mild indistinct dark fruitiness, and some hints of metallics on the finish.

M - The feel is silky smooth, and creamy. Medium bodied with good roasty bitterness lingering on the palate.

Overall, a nice example of the style, but it lies somewhere in the middle of the pack. Lightly warming with a moderate 7.50% abv. Well worth having, and I look forward to trying the others.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottle purchased at AJ's Beer Warehouse in Henrietta, NY.

Pours out a dark, nearly pitch black, with a half inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells like lactose, vanilla, coffee, and roasted malt.

The taste is similar. Pretty smooth, but slightly simple. Some roasted malt flavor is smoothed over by milk stout-y lactose flavors. A little bit of chocolate and coffee flavors, but they are pretty weak.

Medium bodied, but slightly thin. Creamy, smooth, slick mouthfeel. Low carbonation.

Of the "numbers stouts" in this series that I've had (all but Fore), this ranks #3, behind Tres Blueberry and Plead the 5th, and slightly better than One Oatmeal.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a used motor oil brown/black with a frothy, lingering mocha head.

Milk chocolate, toasted malt, deeply roasted malt, and lactose form the aroma. Smells very sweet. Chocolate dominates.

Chocolate carries through in the flavor, dominating throughout, initially. The finish is fairly roasty, a little bitter, and just a touch acrid. Deeply toasted nuts surface in the aftertaste. There’s an underlying dark fruit character that surfaces initially, tart cherries, which bows quickly to the roast malt backbone. Roast and chocolate battle back and forth.

Body is full, rich, and creamy, with modest carbonation, and surprisingly well-hidden alcohol warmth.

Not overly bitter or roasty, with a great chocolate presence. The tinge of tartness adds complexity to break the monotony of the chocolate. Very rich malt character.
