COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckiní hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Dark Horse. Pours darkest black; no light is getting through this baby. Carmel head dissipates quickly, releasing a rich malty bouquet of chocolate and espresso. Smooth and creamy, leaving milk sugar on the tongue. Mmmmmm.

Courtesy Stine. Pours midnight black, like oil, with a tiny little bubbly brown head, Smells of rich, roasty dark malts, some smooth chocolate, with maybe a touch of some dark fruit as well. The flavor is mildly carbonated, with a good dose of that chocolate and toasted malts. Fairly sweet, but not as sweet as I was expecting. Nice, thick mouthfeel, with a lightly bitter finish. Pretty nice, but I like the One better.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - APR 18, 2008
Bottle courtesy of bdigi66. Pours dark brown with no discernible head. Smells of caramel and molasses. Tastes tarte, creamy, and sweet with a slightly bitter finish. This one has lots of malt depth to it. Very nice!

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - APR 18, 2008
12 oz bottle. Dark, thin liquid. No real aroma. No head, very little carbonation. Flavor is roasted malts and coffee. Yada yada yada, you know the drill.....all of these sweet stouts taste the same. This was ok. Kind of a let down after having the "one" a few minutes ago.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2008
Pours black with a small disappearing tan head. The aroma is just what I expect from a stout with lactose. Just roasted malts with this odd sweetness I associate with the lactose. Flavor is chocolate and roasted malts without much complexity. It finishes with a nice bitter bubbly feel. All right beer.

daknole (10799) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2008
Bottle, thanks Acknud!! Wow this is an intense stout. Poured no head at all. Thick and almost black. Actually coated the glass and left it with a brown tint. Big time coffee and chocolate flavors and aromas. Great balance and rich mouthfeel. This is a great stout!

pineypower (2974) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2008
Pours out black with a small brown head. Aroma is of some chocolate and slight roasted malt. Taste is complex and silky smooth. Light roasted malt, chocolate and a nice creamy backbone. Very drinkable and solid.

milljam (682) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - APR 13, 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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2008
Like the other Dark Horse stouts, this one pours absolutely pitch black and opaque. A small ring of brown foam gathers at the rim, producing sudsy, sugary legs that slowly drip back down into the body. The nose is as advertised, with big, roasty notes of bakerís chocolate and espresso. Sweetness comes through in the form of lactic sugars, providing nice contrast to the staunch roast. Flavors mimic this pattern exactly, with creamy lactose showing atop bitter chocolate, roasted coffee, and scorched caramel. Substantial and creamy in the mouth, this one goes down silky smooth, leaving lingering espresso on the rear of the tongue. Iím not a big sweet stout guy, but this one is impressive. Definitely near the top of the genre.
