COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It's big and full bodied with lots of roasted malts and balanced with heavy hops to put this imperial in a league of its own.
Previously known as Dark Horse Imperial Stout.

SHANER4 (491) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Bottle 12oz. - poured black with no head. Aroma - smokey, chocolate, coffee flavor - great smokey roasted chocolate malt taste mixed with excellent sweet vanilla and dark fruit. Palate - thick, almost have to chew to swallow. Finish is dry and has smokey lingering aftertaste. Overall - damn good Imperial Stout, has everything it should and more. First beer from Dark Horse and won’t be the last!

thebeertourist (5179) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle from De Gekraakte Ketel. A small, light brown head formed on top of this black beer. Chocolate aroma reaches from far away, closer to the nose one detects peat, vanilla as well as a certain earthiness. Full impact chocolate and vanilla as well as earthy flavours. A hint of acidity makes it dangerously drinkable. Smooth and full-bodied. State of the art imperial stout.

altonbrownd (5450) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Bottle from Cracked Kettle. Dark dark brown body with roasty brown head. Slightly bitter nose of malts and chocolates. Very inviting. Taste is also bitter and hoppy. Then quickly gets darker, maltier with chocolate flavours. Also vanilla in there. Bitter a tad again in the finish. Very good.

peteinSD (1460) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Black black black in the glass. Slight ring of foam hugging the edge of the glass. Roasted malt and deep bitter chocolate in the aroma. Huge chocolate and malt flavor - well balanced with a tinge of alcohol in the finish. Hints of dark raisin but kept well in check with the heavy roasted malt. Exceptional beer.

Defreni (2995) - Husum, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2010
Flaske: Kulsort øl med et lille mokkafarvet skumhoved. Kraftig duft af molasse og kaffe. Smagen er domineret af kaffe men med et fint humlebid til at kæde øllen sammen. Alkoholen er ikke så dominerende som man kunne frygte. Fin øl.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Nice beer that has that thin mouthfeel due to alcohol presence of the gravity. Not necessarily thin bodied, quite the opposite, but it’s boozy and light on its feet. Nice brandy/bourbony taste in this one that colors the whole experience. Malty, but very boozy in a delicious refined and properly aged fashion.

Jaksmart (454) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle. Quite black pour, very small, brown head. Aroma of roast, oak, berries, vanilla, raisins and some modest hops. Very crispy aroma. Thick flavourof roasty, yet sweet malts, dark berries, oak, vanilla, rum and chocolate. Thick, oily texture, big body, low-flat carbonation, medium duration, high viscosity. Very nice beer.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle poured into a small snifter produced a good finger of than head that stuck around and settled to a thick lace. The color of the brew was black with some tan highlights at the edges. Great aromas’ of chocolate and figs just filled my head. The flavor was outstanding as well with rich sweet chocolate and some nice espresso notes. The mouthfeel was just spot on for what I look for in a stout, thick and coating in you mouth. A great drinking stout. It left me wanting for more. This one is worth seeking out.
