Dark Horse Too Cream Stout:

Now THIS is what I expect when a stout is served!

Blindfolded - you would never guess another style. Thick and creamy mouthfeel, with a strong espresso edge. Blindfold off, you find exactly what you are tasting - am opaque black serving topped with a mocha foam head.

Strong enough to stand up to a pairing with a maduro cigar or an Austrian-Hungarian game stew.

A = Beautifully black, absolutely opaque with the dense, forbidden blackness of a black hole from which not even light escapes.
S = espresso charges up the nostrils
T = deeply espresso with a bourbon edge
M = Thick and creamy - thoughts turn to adding this to my bathwater...
O = This is EASILY in my top five Stouts.

Beautiful job Dark Horse!

Poured from bottle into pint glass.

Eye Candy-Used motor oil with creamy brown head settling on the top.

Nose Candy-Plenty of roasted barley, chocolate malts, and the smell of coffee that has been on all morning.

Mouth Candy-A party in your mouth. Roasted barley hits you first and moves quickly to a coffee taste. At the finish the sweet malts and hops combine in perfect harmony to give a very sweet finish; exactly what a sweet stout should do. Body feel is very full and just right for my taste.

Overall this is a great brew. If you can get your hands on one, you won't be disappointed. Thanks to drxandy for this one.

Bottoms up...
