That smell... ooooh that smell!
Remember that dream you had where you were trapped inside a giant burning hazelnut, and the only way out was dousing it with freshly roasted coffee.
I have not and likely will not smell a better beer in my days.

Mouthfeel and taste fully compliment this with a roasty, toasty, flavor party.
Get that sweet stuff out of here... this beer filled my dreams, not my dessert plate.
Like the Egyptian God this brewery is named after, we’ll be talking about this beer for the next five thousand years!

Time to see if all the rave reviews hold weight...

Slick, oily black pour, with a tan head of foam and heavy lace. Great so far... too soon?

Dude.. this nose is so subtly incredible, not using overly sweet and potent qualities, but instead sticking with quality and simplicity. It starts almost milky, with tons of hazelnuts taking over my nostril’s full attention. Hints of roast give it that edge, but damn it’s just so nutty!

Just as the nose fell off, the flavors took over. Continuing with those roasty notes, the nuttiness quickly finds its way back to the forefront. Compliments of rich fudge follow with a strong punch, along with flavors of caramelized sugar and sweet breadiness. It literally has everything you’d want. True balance, with nothing becoming overly prevalent, and finishing with a slightly bitter, roasty tail.

Goshawk has a medium body. Sticky, with an even, effervescent carb, and an incredibly smooth finish. Warm as it goes down.

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!
