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.

Poured from a bottle into a Founders snifter. Very dark, nearly black pour with a nice two fingers of rocky tan head that retains a bit before reducing down to a thin foam. The nose is slightly roasty and grainy with coffee and rolled oats.

Medium-full body with a pleasant flavor. There is some sweetness and roastiness from the malt and a smoothing, grainy, earthy note from the oats. A pretty middle-of-the-road oatmeal stout, neither too sweet nor too dry. Not much of a hop presence. The feel is smooth and silky, but a bit thin for the style. Not much to complain about with this brew, but not much to write home about either.

This stout has a glowing opal blackness with a thick viscosity and a cloud like foam of brown froth.

The aromas are malty like Graham cracker, with a creamy marshmallow and some cocoa powder. There's a phenolic aroma that seems to surround the entire scent but then it ends with a chocolatey touch.

The flavor is more tempered than most oatmeal stouts as each flavor seems weak and melded together. I do get a nice milk chocolate than a creamy caramel. There's some roasted char and a bit of happiness but all in all its just not that remarkable.

The feel is really smooth with nice thickness, low carbonation and a silky viscosity.
