Poured this brew into a Cheers Dimpled mug, not really sure why but I liked the way it looked. The beer is very black in color, solid bubbling brown colored head on top. The lacing is nice on this brew. The smell of the beer has a lot of roasted burnt aromas coming off of it along with some lactose sourness on the nose. The taste of this really does have a creamy flavor upfront and in the back it dries out into a bitter burnt toast flavor. The mouthfeel is a pretty thick which I found nice. Overall it's a pretty good tasting stout.

A: The beer is jet black in color. No traces of amber are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to a bright light. It poured with a thin mocha-colored head that died down and left just a collar of small bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are aromas of lactose in the nose along with notes of dark chocolate and hints of roasted malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of dark chocolate, lactose and roasted coffee beans. A very slight amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a bit less than a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has a great balance between the flavors of sweet lactose and roasted malts. It's also rather easy to drink because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

Traditional attitudes that circulate about cream stouts were smoothen out the rougher edges of roast with milk sugars, giving the beer a softer and more approachable palate. Not the case says Dark Horse, the additions of cream gives permission to sock even more roast to the beer- not favoring the masses but to reward those who prefer serious roast character.

Black. Onyx-like in color and sheen, the beer reluctantly surrenders its carbonation and slowly builds a meringue of mocha proportions. High retention and blanketed lace coats the glass with aggressiveness. Beers just don't look stouter!

Strong roasty aromas dominate the nose in ways that only espresso and burnt toast can only want. Burnt woods, embers, and cinders blend with cocoa, and light smoke. Somewhat meaty and savory, the underlying cream notes are supportive but in no way balance the scent.

The same dominance is alive in taste with the sharp and acrid flavors of burnt toast, heavy roasted espresso bean, and light ash. Bittersweet chocolate and cocoa lurk closely behind and give roundness to the sheer roast. Burnt molasses add a tinge of softness that concludes a milkshake-like late palate. A long and lingering aftertaste of burnt grain outlasts the milky taste and give assertive ash and roughness in aftertaste.

Creamy, full, and absolutely chewy, the beer engulfs the mouth and retains its malty carbonated creaminess in a marshmallowy and milkshake proportion. A very late closure releases the malt and aids the dry ash and burnt husk bitterness and astringency to finish.

This is an incredibly full beer that's sharp, rough, and exhibits overall burnt character- far greater than the lactose additions can balance.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours an almost black color with a modest beige head that drifts away to a ringlet; a few strands of lace are left behind

Smell: Quite roasty, with chocolate, a vague hint of cherries and a whiff of lactose

Taste: Rich black bread, with milk chocolate and a hint of cherry fruit, a bit of coffee and hops arrive by mid-palate, as well; after the swallow, the lactose takes over by mellowing out the other flavors to provide a smooth finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, somewhat creamy, with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: A very pleasant milk stout with a surprisingly fruity/hoppy aspect

Taste is roasty, with a dose of campfire smoke. Earthy, malty, with an edge of hop bitterness in the finish. Not sweet, but verges on bittersweet chocolate big time.

Creamy mouthfeel with just enough carbonation to sustain a finger of tan foam. Body is inky black, it pours like motor oil. Nondescript aroma, slight roast malt as it warms. If you like smoke in your stout, seek this out.

One is good for me, it's a rare treat...

A - Poured out a syrupy black color with almost no head (not unusual from Dark Horse). No lacing.

S - It smelled very sweet. Good notes of toffee, molasses and some chocolate.

T - Tasted of milk chocolate, sweet caramel malt and some toffee. It had a subtle vanilla kick.

M - This was soft and creamy. A medium bodied beer.

D - This is a very tasty brew. A sweet and delicious milk stout.

Reviewed from notes.

Poured into a snifter. Pours a very, very dark brown color. Nose brings forward some lightly roasted malt as well as a bit of sugar. Some coffee and chocolate pervade, but are certainly in the background. The taste is pretty plain without much other than a bit of roast. The feel is a bit dry, but has a nice body with the lactose. Drinks quite well overall, though there's not much that stands out about it.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/1/2012. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense very dark brown head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, char, coffee, cream, toffee, smoke, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with nice complexity and balance of big roasted flavors with moderate cream sweetness. Taste of big dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, light char, cream, toffee, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Light coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, light char, cream, toffee, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of dark roasted flavors with moderate cream sweetness; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice cream stout. Very well balanced with extremely robust roasted flavors and moderate sweetness; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Pours a super dark colored fizzy but semi rich head, that fades semi quickly but never goes away as it supported with lots of bubbles from the bottom of a normal snifter glass, over motor oil pitch black colored beer.

Nose brings tons of roast and black patent malts, touch of coffee and toffee, some earthy very dark bitter chocolate like 85% cacao heavy, a bit of a creamy aroma, a bit of a boozy tingle in the nose.

Taste starts with some bitter scorched malts, plenty of roast packed in there, a bit of coffee, again super bitter dark intense chocolate, a slight creamy milky feel but not much, some light cinnamon like spice flavors, fairly bitter, some light earthy hops but lots of bitterness from burnt malts, a bit of minerality, semi sweet with hints of warming booze. Finishes with a long bitter scorched malt flavor, some light minerality and earthy flavors, dries a bit. I wouldn't really call this a cream stout as much as I would call it a Baltic POrter or RIS.

Mouth is thicker and semi heavier bodied, a little syrupy almost, with frothy decent carbonation, and a bit of warming booze.

Drink is not that great, fairly heavy and a little syrupy, a bit boozy, and bitterness and minerality linger for a little bit.

Easily one of the darkest beers I've ever seen, Dark Horse's Cream Stout pours an opaque stream of oily black into the glass, steadily raising a frothy dark brown head that drops shortly to a wide collar and whispy surface covering. Its intensity of color, however, is not carried over into the flavor and aroma. The nose is, in fact, more fruity (with a berry-like yeastiness) than it is roasty. Only as it warms does the coffee and dark chocolate character begin to rise. The mouthfeel is certainly full though, leaving it somewhat viscous, supple, and creamy smooth across the palate with a mild, very-fine bubbled natural carbonation from bottle conditioning. In the flavor it's mainly coffee-like, with mild hints of bittersweet chocolate, but no sweetish caramel or nuttiness. And the expected, harsh and bitter, super deep roastiness like an ashtray is entirely missing... this is actually quite smooth and rounded! There's not a lot of complexity to it, but it IS rich, and it lingers in the aftertaste for minutes after it's gone. Quite nice. A great cigar beer!

12 oz bottle served in a snifter.

Pours near black and thick looking; like over-used motor oil. Weak head. A layer of dark sediment left on the bottom of the bottle despite a full pour.

Aroma: exceptionally appealing if fairly simple, with more medium roasted grain than expected.

Flavor: Excellent sweet/bitter balance, with the light sweetness overcome by mild bitterness by the finish. Lingering dark roasted malts and black coffee in the aftertaste. A hint of dark chocolate.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours black with a finger of dark mocha/chocolate brown head. This retains with a thin layer of froth around the edges that leaves some light spotty lace behind. This pretty much looks just like the bottle of One that I just drank. The aroma smells of dark chocolate malts and earthy hops. This also has a smooth milky creaminess to it that really helps bring out the sweeter accents of that chocolate character.

The taste is dark roast and creamy chocolate sweetness, with a firm dose of earthy and spicy hops mixed in. Lots of lingering roast in the finish, but a lot of sweetness does as well, with milky lactic notes hanging in there the most. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a nice firmness to the carbonation that then gives way to some chewier sweetness underneath. That 8% is hidden rather well, with only some light warmth in the overall feel.

Equal parts dark and sweetly chewy, this was a solid Milk Stout with a good feel for a larger beer.

First had: on tap at Pinocchio's, Media, PA

Poured dark brown to black with a tannish head that lingered pretty well. Coffee and a bit of chocolate in the nose. Taste of roasted coffee and roasty malts, and some semi-sweet chocolate. Heavy-medium mouthfeel, not too strong or thick. Pleasant and drinkable.

Glossy sable that cozies up to the pint glass so snuggly that no highlights are visible. The compact cap is the color of molasses cookies and looks to be equally as dense. More lace would have been great, but then an ABV of 8.0% is high enough for tempered expectations in that department.

The nose is mega-roasted with an abundance of freshly-brewed black coffee. I seem to remember coffee being a big part of the first beer in this 'Holiday Stout Series', One Oatmeal Stout. Looking back at that review, I think this nose is almost identical, both in terms of quality and personality.

Other than a mouthfeel that's too thin for such a boldly flavored stout, I like Too just as much as I liked One. I'm guessing that Dark Horse used a preponderance of roasted and black malt, keeping the paler varieties to a minimum. When you aren't going to use a truckload, it's best to maximize bang for the buck.

Well-roasted coffee beans are still the obvious focal point. In addition, dark chocolate and molasses swirl throughout each mouthful, and the added milk sugar is easily appreciated. I wish more stouts were this serious about delivering such intense flavor. While sweet and bitter share top billing, the lactic tang has to satisfied with a brief cameo. For a milk/sweet stout, Too isn't all that milky or that sweet.

I'm really torn about the mouthfeel. If this is an 8.0%'er, as I've been led to believe, then it's too light (for the record, it drinks like a 6.0%'er at most). This amount of deliciousness deserves a more sturdy vehicle so that the beer can maximize its taste bud contact time.

Now that I'm halfway through the One, Too, Tres, Fore series of Dark Horse stouts, I have to say that I'm impressed. Too is easily the equal of One and is so drinkable that I've finished the beer before finishing my review; something that doesn't happen very often. Snag this one if you have the opportunity. It's excellent beer.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into my Portsmouth snifter. It poured black in color with a thick and dense chocolaty head to it. The head retreated to the edges of the glass rather quickly, where it left just a bit of lacing.

The aroma has a lactose like sweetness to it with some milk chocolate as well. A moderate bitterness with just a bit of burnt flavors come through also. pretty nice aroma for the style.

The taste has a a pretty big sweet lactose and milk chocolate flavor to it, which is fitting for the style. It has some bitter, roasty, dark chocolate and burnt flavors coming through as well. The finish leaves both the sweetness and burnt bitterness lingering. Pretty good flavors overall for the style.

The mouthfeel is a bit above medium bodied with carbonation being moderate. Drinkability is pretty good, it had some nice flavors to it. It was pretty balanced between the sweetness and roasty flavors which really helped the drinkability and complexity of it. Very nice beer overall and a very good version of the style.

Dark beige/tan color to the head, but it doesn't last, nor does it leave any lace. The beer is near black in color where no light passes.

Deep dark chocolat; bittersweet smell. Strong chalky cocoa smell.

The flavor mimics the smell except that there is more burnt malt taste to it. The body is creamy, but not too sweet like most Cream Stouts. The aftertaste is slightly nutty with a linger coffee ground taste.

So I only have a couple more left in the holiday stout series and I wanted something dark to have with dinner last night and decided to take this one for a ride. The nice 12oz bottle was served at cellar temperature and poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - What a wonderful looking stout we have here. This one poured a pitch black with no light escaping at all,

This thing looked like an abyss. Pitch black, I could not even find any light sneaking in around the sides at all. A nice huge looking tan head then rose up over the top to a height of around two inches before finally settling down to a thin chocolate pillow across the top, but not before depositing copious amounts of side glass lace throughout the session,

Smell - The aroma was very large, and nice and sweet. Tons of lactose aromas coming through on this one. Sweet mil chocolate and a good touch of sugar all over this. Some nice dark roasted malts were hanging out way in the back, but otherwise this was just very sweet, delicious smelling to be honest.

Taste - The flavor followed suit nicely. The first thing I noticed was a nice roasted malt taste that was quickly erased by sweet milk sugar. Lots of vanilla hints rolling through here as well, with a nice chocolate like flavor as well. The finish had a touch of dry hoppiness to it, but other then hat it finished the way it started and came off very nice,

Mouthfeel - Nice smooth, creamy feel, not as heavy as I would have liked, but still very well done, and a testament to how well this one was put together. Really again very well done.

Drinkability - I could have easily had this one all night long. The carbonation was done very well and the overall feel of it was nice, albeit a touch on the light side. There was a decent amount of sugar, and the alcohol was nowhere to be found. I easily could have had another one at any point.

Overall I thought this was a n excellent representation of the style and one of the better sweet stouts I have had. Rich in complexity and low in BV, it is the perfect session able stout for the evening. I would be happy t have this one again any day!

I picked this up at the same time as Tres -in a mix-a-six at Al's of Hampden. Poured chilled into a tumbler and allowed to gradually increase in temperature.

The appearance is black, no light passing through with dark brown head and no lace clings -the stout looks pretty much like used oil, a formidable presence. The aroma is very fragrant with some mild sweet and creamy aromas with subtle coffee odor from the malt. The feel is very impressive in that it is sweet, but balanced by some roasted and bitter elements from the malt with medium full body and semisweet finish. I like that I had no idea that this is 8%

The flavor of Too is very pleasant it seems to combine the sweetness and caramel maltiness with some mild roasted and toast tastes. The flavor of the malt never seems to get cloying and the beer reminds me of sweetened coffee with some silky and creamy tinges that make the bitterness and alcohol levels seem very tame. I like how the mild burnt sugar taste lingers in the backrground adding complexity to the sweet and caramel taste. The beer finishes as it starts semi-dry and fresh. I feel this is a great example of the style -a pretty tasty stout in general, not overly sweet and has nice flavor overall. This is highly drinkable and I recommend trying it if you have the chance.

Thanks to Alicia for this one.

A: The flavor is essentially black with a mild mocha colored head on top.

S: There is a lot of coffee to the nose of this beer. A strong roasted malt note as well, as a light creamy sweetness.

T: The sweetness is not as pronounced as most cream/milk stouts. Still, the sweetness that is there provides a nice balance to the strong coffee and bitter chocolate.

M: The body is medium with a creamy and moderate level of carbonation.

D: One of my favorite styles, and this is a bit of a different interpretation of it. I really enjoyed the strong coffee and slight creaminess.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle my Portsmouth tulip.

a - Pours a jet black color with one finger of tan head that leaves very quickly and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, and light earthy wood notes. I was picturing some vanilla or cream like Bell's cream stout but none here.

t - Tastes of coffee, roasted malts, bitter chocolate, light cream, and light vanilla. The taste reminded me of Bell's double cream a little bit.

m - Relatively light body for a stout and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

d - A pretty nice stout. Not a lot of cream in the nose but you can definitely taste it. Glad to try it and would definitely have it again.

Served in a Devil's Backbone willibecher.

(I honestly can't remember who sent me this bottle, so if the sender reads this, shoot me a BM and I'll give you your due recognition.)

VDubb thinks I'll like this one, so let's find out how right he is. It pours a straight obsidian topped by merely a few layers of brown bubbles. The nose comprises molasses, roasted malts, light coffee, cinnamon, and some blackened biscuits. The taste follows, but with a slim undertow of vanilla, though this is soon drowned out by the more sinister notes. The body is a heavy medium, with a moderate carbonation and a decently smooth feel. Overall, a very nice, roasty stout; a little light on the "cream" aspect, but rather tasty nonetheless. Those Dark Horse folks can make a mean stout.

How clever they are, One, Too, Tres, Fore and Plead the 5th! I am holding Fore in abeyance, awaiting a smoke-a-thon one of these days. In the interim, another of my bottle backlog is annihilated, but still no end in sight.

This was visually stunning coming out of the bottle and into my glass! It looked like high viscosity engine oil, 40-weight, as it did its pseudo-cascade and then formed a finger of dense, deep-brown head with excellent retention. Color was a deep, dark-brown (SRM = 44) allowing zero light penetration. THIS is their interpretation of a Cream Stout?!? Nose was rich and chocolaty, more towards dark chocolate with a charcoal smokiness. Mouthfeel was big, full and creamy and the taste was incredibly smoky, which while appealing to me, is stylistically incorrect. Why would they make Fore and this? I left a bit in the bottle so as to be able to stir up the lees for an additional pour, but it really did not change things by much, except to intensify the smokiness, if that is possible. Finish was bitter, smoky, dry, all of which adds up to something other than a Milk/Sweet Stout. I am not a style maven, by any stretch, but this was a wolf in sheep's clothing.

Bottle shared by matt9875. Thanks Matt!

A: Deep black and opaque, void of color. A half inch of thick, beige head rests atop the beer and leaves ample lacing throughout the glass. A fabulous appearance.

S: Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate.

T: The beer tastes quite good. The roasted malt leads the way, followed by a pleasant coffee flavor that shows up on the palate midway through.

M: Creamy and smooth, with alcohol content well disguised.

D: I would definitely have this again.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass. Another bottle courtesy of chpueblo22.

Appearance - Inky black and glass-staining. Not much head, but that it has is a very dark chocolate foam. Nice. I forgive its subsequent torpitude because of how jet black it is.

Smell - Lactose and a hefty coffee roast. Maybe a hint of alcohol as it warms. Uninspiring, but at least I get the roast more than the lactose.

Taste - Lactose sweetness right up front, but it isn't overwhelming. The dark roasts fight through. Mostly coffee, but some chocolate and burnt malt comes through as well. Nicely bitter in the finish, as it combats the lactose, but it's more from the roast than hops.

Mouthfeel - Not boozy in the taste and decently carbonated. The lactose, even if I don't love the flavor, makes it smooth and somewhat creamy. The heavy roasted malts really kill any notion of a cream stout, though.

Overall - I enjoyed One more, but this isn't bad for a milk stout. I try not to hold my opinion of lactose additions against these beers, and this one at least gave me a decent stout behind it.

Pours a pitch black hue, absolutely no light makes it through. Big billowing dark moccha tan head forming thick with sporadic bands of lacing forming on my Sammy Smith impy pint. Aroma has an air of nice smokiness amongst the dark chocolate roasted coffee and creamy milk sugar tones going on. Ideal dark stout that competes as up there with some of the best stout I've had from Michigan, that's pretty huge when comparing to Bell's, and Founder's. Flavor is full of dark roasted malt character, dark coffee creamy hints of milk sugars amongs the acrid dark nearly burnt roasted malt flavor. Very good balanced big cream stout, it does finish a bit sour harsh with creamed coffee notes. Mouthfeel was medium bodied soft carbonation mellow on the palate really worked finish was a bit harsh with acrid roasted dark malts. Drinkability overall was very good, alcohol was extremely well hidden the type of brew that you will put a couple away before realizing the potency. Flavor wise you will want to consume a couple of these brews.
