Black with very chocolately-brown head that is mostly diminishing. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, mild-to-moderate smoke, and alcohol. Chocolate malt and lightly smokey flavor, moderately sweet. Mildly carbonated. I came looking for a smoked beer and was sadly disappointed in that regard, as the smoke characteristics take a far back seat to the chocolate malts, but the underlying stout is quite fantastic, and I ended up loving this beer for altogether different reasons than what I expected.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Pours a thick, opaque espresso brown with very little head, just tan lacing. Aroma is definitely smoked and cocoa with roasted malts. Flavor is HEAVILY smoked malts and espresso. Body is medium and carbonation light. Dark horse made a strong smoked stout but did it well.

Dark dark dark. Brownish espresso head. Big malts, lots of milk chocolate. Also a bit of coffee and maybe a hint of smoke. Full bodied, thickness lingers on the palate, but not annoyingly so. Smooth. Just another in the line of fine brews from Dark Horse. Not disappointed by this one.

Pour is dark black with an average cocoa head. Not a lot of smoke noticed in the aroma. That is okay with me as I prefer the smokiness to be more subtle as opposed to dominant. Lots of chocolate with faint smoke notes. Creamy smooth palate. Rich beer and not like I expected. A nice treat. My kind of smoked beer. Another winner from Dark Horse, which is quickly moving into my top tier of breweries around.

Dark beer with a thin brown head. Smoke, chocolate and molasses all in the deep, silky nose. Nice full bodied beer. Lots of bitter chocolate, burnt toast, molasses, clean wood smoke, and alcohol. Not greasey like some smoked beers. Really a well blended, well balanced treat.

Thanks to hophead75 for sharing. Pours a deep charcoal black- almsot opaque just like thier other stouts- head is thin. Aroma is toasty- tons of chocolate malt and the smoke is noticed but not intense. Flavor has a bit more smoke, but the chocolate malts dominate- has some licorice, and almost an oily feel and a smooth finish. Great stout as expected from DH.

12 oz bottle from Stine. Black in color with a small light brown head. Aroma is very nice- chocolate, moderate roast/coffee, some hints of smoke. Taste is roasty with chocolate, moderately sweet, with a nice smooth body. Some hints of smoke in the finish, but I would’ve liked more personally. Overall a very good stout. Thanks Eben.

I was afraid this was going to remind me of cocktail weenies, but thankfully it’s not entirely true to style. On tap@ Dark Horse 12/30/07. Poured a dark, dark brown with a tan head, releasing notes of coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. Flavor reminds me of smoked chocolate, and not smoked meat which is why I finished this beer and enjoyed it.
