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!

12 oz.

Pours jet black, thin nut brown film for a head dissipates to nothing.

Smells of oak, smoke, bourbon, caramel, cocoa and coffee.

Rich flavor of bourbon, cocoa, burnt oak, vanilla bean and coffee with a notable hint of cream.

Medium to full, creamy body with a light tingle of carbonation on the tip of the tongue.

Above average stout, good flavor and body at a not-too-high abv, definitely worth having. Hadn't had a good stout in a while, this hit the spot.

Pours dark as expected with a minimal bronze head. The smell is very bitter with a kind of tin nose as well. Much like the smell the taste is extremely bitter chocolate. This is not for me but if you are a bitter chocolate fan than you will definitely like this. The upfront taste is not bad but really the downfall of this beer is the aftertaste. Very bitter and leaves a faint harsh taste on the tongue. I don't find this creamy or a milk stout. if there was a bitter stout category this would be a prefect fit. Would not buy this again.
