This one pours a fairly dark black color, with a small head and not much lacing.

This smells like fluffy and sweet hazelnut, creamy vanilla, rich coffee, and chocolate fudge.

This is definitely decadent and excellent. It feels like there’s more hazelnut than coffee- it’s sticky, full and sweet and sweet in that flavor, with a nice toastiness to it. There’s lot to fudgy chocolate too, and a nice subtle roasty coffee flavor as well. I expected more coffee boldness since it was a pretty hype-y type of coffee, but I guess it doesn’t matter as the whole package tastes great.

This is medium bodied and super creamy, with a nice richness to it. It’s nicely drinkable.

This is my first Horus stout- I definitely need to get my hands on more.

Very nice stout...get lots of coffee upfront with a big nut-kick (that's a burst of nutty flavor, not a kick in the nuts) at the back end.... Nice body for a non-BA stout, and best of all, a little sweet but not cloyingly so like lots of stouts.... Good Balance!

Excellent beer, thicccc and swarming on the palate hazelnuts on display with a smooth coffee to round out the never ending rounds of chocolate. One of the thickest beers I've ever had the pleasure of tasting this is a top 5 non barrel aged beer for me, seek this out
