Wow! This is just superb and I canít get over the fact that Iíve never heard of it before. Everything is right and the smoke level is not over-the-top or annoying. The BBQ flavor is there for sure.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with coffee brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, soy sauce, gravy, Sunday roast, milk and faint hints if rubber. Taste is initially (and shortly) very sweet then medium bitter and light acidic and finally fruity sweet towards the end. Body is buttery with light carbonation. Finish is long, medium bitter/sweet and very complex with notes of roasted malt, dark (> 90 %) chocolate, chocolate mousse, espresso, caramelised figs. Excellent stout - goes well with a glass of Islay single malt!

Pours pitch black with a small layer of milk chocolate colored head. Smells roasted, smoky, hints of chocolate, and subtle coffee. Taste is smoked milk chocolate, like a specialty bar of artisan chocolate. Medium-to-full bodied with a smooth, silky texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Dark Horse Fore Smoked Stout finishes with a soft lingering smoky sweetness.

Just about perfect, the smokiness is a good compliment to the classic stout chocolate flavors. Very restrained smoky taste unlike some other smoked brews Iíve tried where brewers obviously just tried to cram as much smoke taste into it as chemically possible. Actually liked this one much better than Plead the 5th.

Pours a thick and oily very dark brown-black, with a brief cap of tan foam that quickly turns into a sparse ring. A little foam clings to the sides of the glass after each sip, but then slides back into the beer in oily sheets. Amazing bold mocha java aroma, slightly smoky, slightly fruity, with lots of molasses. More bitter flavor than the aroma would indicate - heavier on the bitter coffee, bitter chocolate, and husky grain. No trace of the fruit or molasses from the aroma. Dry bitter woodsmoke and charred oak throughout. All of these plus hash oil in the aftertaste. Frickiní hash oil of all things! Mild carbonation, warming alcohol presence, but no alcohol flavors.

Aroma is rich and very smoky with a chocolaty undertone and hints of burnt wood and molasses. It pours a beautiful opaque sable, just a whisker above black, with a thick, fine-bubbled tan head. Rich flavor is very smoky and has tones of molasses, fine roast coffee and unsweet chocolate as well as a tiny fishy hint. Texture is thick, smooth, oily and just a little tingly. This one is a must!

This sheet is dankness in bottle liquid form. Not overly smoky, and not fake smoke tasting if that makes sense. Went damn good with my flank steak tacos I made the other day.

Absolutely stellar smoked stout from Dark Horse. This crew is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries, if nothing else for that their beer is so reliably great. This beer pours incredibly thick, a dark, oily black with a nice viscosity and a wonderful boozy flavor that sits in the tip of the tongue. Clean, woody finish and some amazing stuff going on here. Canít wait to have this again!

Bottle . Thansk to Styles. Poured a deep black like oil. Aroma of coffe and smoke is very present. The taste is of coffe and the smoke taste makes me think like I just bit into a smoked briskit.
