Depp, dark, rich, a perfect Stout. Not just a Cream Stout, nor just a Sweet Stout, but a top notch all-around Stout of Stouts.

Also known as ’One’ in the trio of Dark Horse stouts. This one and the oatmeal variety look remarkably similar - deep brown with a quick scattering tan head. This one gets the nod for nose and flavour, with an interesting licorice accompaniment to the harder roasts and bitters. But its best to mix the two. I’m serious! I had the two pints poured simultaneously and when each got down to a third of a glass or so I whimsically mixed them. The result deepened the full round sweet flavours and allowed them to better battle the bitters. The mixture reminded me of some of the better Imperials for complexity.

larsga (6240) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Biggish grayish black head. Opaque black body. Roasty mealy toffee aroma with waxy notes. Roasty earthy toffee taste with raisiny fruity notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty toffee and raisins aftertaste with burnt notes. Long, lingering mineraly burnt chocolate finish. Interesting, different, and impressively well made. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly.)

Foffern (1252) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a pitch black colour with a medium, creamy, light brown head. Roasted tones in the aroma along with dark chocolate, wood, leather nougat (Ferrero Rocher if you know), ash, smoke and soy sauce. The flavour is more roasted with more ash, campfire and coffee beans. Has a slick mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A fantastic mix of roasted malt and sweet lactose. A tasteful and aromatic dessert beer.

Keg @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 06-09-2014.
In short: nice creamy stout.
Pours black with rich creamy tan head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Roasty, coffee, chocolate, creamy aromas. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste follows the nose, moderate bitterness, smooth, silky, alcohol well integrated but noticed.

Syndicate (89) - Idaho, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Got this from Shane. Poured out a pretty jet black with a dark brown head. It was a textbook stout pour. Big roasty nose that was pretty inviting. Flavor was pretty big for a 7.5 abv stout. Big roasted malts, creamy dark chocolate, light nutty bitterness that balances pretty well. It reminded me of a bigger beer without the booziness. I thought this was done quite well.
