Dark horse is an awesome brewery. This beer has a nice mix of chocolate and coffee. Taste is light coffee, hints of chocolate and a nice malty mild- bitter finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle of 33cl.
Nice stout, but one of the worst I’ve tasted. Got a nice dark colour (so a nice appearance), nice palate but got a faste, slightly taste of chocolate and coffee.
Try it if it’s free, but don’t pay for it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Embrouille, thanks! Roasted, tart pumpernikel bread coupled with softer notes of dark chocolate and coffee. A light whiff of hops and some heated (not burned) wood, like in a sauna. Full bodied, starting off malty and getting more coffeeish and woody in the finish. I feel the roast is a bit over the top though, giving the beer more tartness than it needs and accounting for the rather rough mouthfeel. I prefer my big beers more mellow.
