Number Too - This beer is made with milk sugar (lactose) which gives this beer a nice creamy mouth feel which mingles with hints of chocolate and roasty flavors.

Bottle at Noogfest Four-O. Pours red-black with small beige head. Aroma is roasty, a touch sweeter than One. Flavor is the same roasty sweetness with some slight caramel character. Good, but a little less interesting than its predecessor.

This one is harsher than the One. Itís less creamy in body as well. Nice beer though.

Brown black pour with a thin tan head that fades almost immediately. Smell is light and mild raosted malt. Flavor is lightly sweet and nutty. Thin mouthfeel - with a slightly low carbonation. It has some raosted elements but overall is just a bit bland.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle at Noogfest 08. Pours midnight black with a brown head. Dominate coffee in the nose, but pleasant. Medium to full bodied with some dryness on the palate, slightly creamy texture. Flavor of dark bakers chocolate and coffee with a moderate balancing bitterness. This is good but lacks the wow factor that I find in other Dark Horse stouts.

NachlamSie (3230) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours inky black with almost no head. The aroma has definite hints at coffee, some chocolate, and a bit of sweet wooden character. The mouthfeel is pretty decent, nice and slick. Hints of vanilla, almonds, sharp coffee, thin chocolate, and a roasty finish. The whole thing seems a bit thinner than I would expect from Dark Horse. Iíve been completely blown away by their stouts and porters, but this one is just good.

Bottles from The_Epeeist and demitriustown. Thanks!
Pours dark black with a tan head. Roasty malt and cream smell with a similar taste along with a faint smokiness too. Medium to light carbonation and a nice lightly rich body. Solid cream stout.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Very dark pour....small amount of brown foam. Roasted malt on the nose...hints of strong coffee and bitter chocolate. Big flavor of roasted chocolate malts, coffee and bitter chcolate. Mouthfeel is definitly creamy....interesting use of milk sugar. Smooth, bitter finish. Not as sweet as other cream-type stout.....the bitter roastedness is more similar to a porter...but still good overall.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 Bottle from discount liquor. Dark brown with that same red brown head. Slight coffee with chocolate, dried out aroma. Nice sweet chocolate with a little condensed milk flavor. Medium, creamy body. Very nice.

Bottle courtesy of tetrik -- thanks! This is my first of the series, and if the others are this good Iím in for a real treat as I work my way through them.

Pours a ridiculous inky black with a gorgeous deep brown head. Lovely roasty nose, splendid gently sweet (Thai iced coffee) flavor, chocolate , plenty of roast in the finish, just a tiny bit smoky, and enough hops to make their mark melting with the coffee close. Ah, this is a fine, fine stout. Bravo!

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Pours an incredibly dark brown to black with healthy enough, dense enough, small bubbled tan head. The nose is full of chocolate and roast over a creamy smoothness. Big burly malt. Bittersweet chocolate. Full creamy softly carbonated body, thick with stuff! Lovely. The flavors are in line with the nose. Thick sweet palpable chocolatey malt. Some floral hops, mostly sweet creamy acidic chocolate with some fruit coffee roast sort of flavors towards the end. Long lingering roast and acidity. This is a really delightful beer, Iíve forgotten how well crafted it is.
