12 oz.

Pours ink black with a nut brown film for a head. Dissipates to nothing.

Smells of cocoa, oats, vanilla, and oak.

Tastes of rich chocolate, roasted coffee beans, a slight tart acidity, vanilla, and toasted oatmeal malts.

Full viscous body with tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A pretty solid stout with good flavor and aroma. It's not anything special but it's quite a good representation of the style and certainly worth trying.

A: This poured an opaque black with moderate dark tan head.
S: It smelled like dry cocoa powder and earthy roasted coffee, with some sweet oats and cream.
T: It tasted like earthy dark chocolate and bitter coffee grinds, with a little sweet toasted oats. It had a bitter earthy aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with a little carbonation. Fairly smooth body.
D: This was a decent oatmeal stout, with simple but enjoyable scent and taste and body. The finish was a bit harsh, but it wasn't difficult to drink. Nice to try once at least, but nothing special.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a dark inky black with a solid half inch head that lingers for quite awhile.

S: Very faint coffee nose, not much going on here. A bit unusual for a stout.

T: Subtle, not overpowering. I had trouble picking up any distinct flavors. Slight bitter finish.

M: Medium full mouth feel. Doesn't linger on the tongue.

Overall: I love most Dark Horse brews and while this isn't a favorite, it's not bad.
