12 oz bottle I think BrianK brough this to Dickinsonbeers, thanks Brian (I think). Poured a super pitch black but unfortunately it was as headless as Ichabod Crane. Great aroma of espresso, tar, nicotine and smoke. Super thick full bodiy with barely any carbonation. Not sure if it was slightly flat or if that was the brewers intention. Either way this was a super beer and if it was flat oh my god someone please get me a carbonated bottle because this rating would go through the roof.

I thought this was the best of the dark horse stouts, very smokey. Poured pitch black. Definately worth trying

12oz bottle via trade with someone, thanks. Pours black with light brown thin head. Nose is very smoky and roasty. Taste is really nice, full of smoke, coffee, toffee, and chocolate. This is better than one, though I have a special place in my heart for tres.

(Bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=3 target=blank>EithCubes, thanks Mike!) Burnt molasses and smoke...Pours thick and black - black like very well-used motor oil. One and a half fingers of brown head recedes to a pretty-well lasting thin layer. Aroma like lightly burned molasses and light smoked wood, kind of sweet. Mouthfeel pretty thick, almost oily, nice. Flavor is burned dark molasses with woodsmoke. Some grassiness in finish which is only thing I didn’t like. Nice thick molasses and smoke. Yum.

Dark Horse knows how to make a stout and this stout incorporates a nice smokiness. Black pour with short tan head. Light smoky aroma and much more stout characteristics in the nose: roast, chocolate, cherries. Nice. The flavor is modately sweet, lightly bitter and moderately acidic. Nice touch of smoke throughout. Slightly tart finish. Medium body and adequate caronbation. I enjoyed this as a stout and the delicate smoke was a plus.

12oz. Bottle the wife got on Wi trip. Sweet tobacco along with burning campfire wood aroma. Black body with dark chocolate thin head. Flavor was sweet and alocohol was noticable at the start. Got a good sweet malted chocolate along with some wood and tobacco in the flavor. Sweet dry coco left on the palate. Smooth enjoyable brew.

Bottle. Aroma of roasted marshmallow, molasses, leather and smoked wet wood. Pours black with a thin ruby brown head. Light smoke at first on the tongue. Lots of sweet, lightly roasted malt. Some coffee. A nice bitter (not hoppy) finish. The smoke starts to assert itself as the beer warms. Creamy with average carbonation.

12 oz. bottle via trade with njhcnwk - Pours a thick black color with a thin tan head that faded pretty quick. Very little carbonation. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, and smoke (peat). Flavor is a lightly sweetened, smokey chocolate. Palate is a little thin. Light to medium body. A good beer. Thanks Brian.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2007 12 Oz Bottle. Oily density spills from the glass in viscous splendor. Thin rim of sweet Virginia pipe tobacco. Aroma has a suave and smooth rough salted oak and charcoal. Deeper there is a rich, musky earth spiced with whiskey splendor and hints of barbecue. Deep and complex. Flavor carries more of a dry stout character, but is nicely highlighted with grill char, sweet fish marinade, long drying coffee air, and some flatter ocean tastes. Carboniferous and yet higher with bits of brandy marinated fruit, nuts and nice general malt figures. Long smack in the middle of dry and sweet, but generally enjoyable. I guess as a Smoked this doesn’t really excel all that much as I’m not grabbing that much smoke, but it’s a nice stout twinged with those aromas and flavors.
