Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle. A black beer with a big fast dissapering brown head. The aroma and taste is roasted and of oat, bread, chocolate and coffee. Medium to full body with a dry finish. Plesant beer.

Dark Horse isnt as across the board good as, say, Founders, but it does have some nice stuff. This was one. Poured as a beer should: jet black with a sufficient drown head. Dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, brown sugar, molasses, dried cherries all in the aroma and in the flavor. Rich and robust in the mouth. Nice sweetness with just a little bitterness.

Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2007
Bottle. Small light brow fizzy head that mostly diminished. Spare lacework. Pitch black color. Liquorish, dried fruit, roasted malt, vinous. Over the palate notes of bitter coffee and chocolate comes through. Medium to full bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet and bitter flavor. Bitter coffee and liquorish finish.

WabashMan (1024) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2007
A very nice oatmeal stout. Pours a very dark, almost black, brown. Would earn perfect marks, if the dark brown head were longer lasting but, sadly, it faded too quickly to enjoy throughout. Nose is roasty, with stronger alcohol notes than are present in the flavor. Roast and coffee dominate the bitter flavor. Mouthfeel is medium.

Pours black with almost no head. Aroma sweet with strong coffee and light chocolate. Taste much the same, pretty sweet and with lots of coffee.

lampeno420 (320) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Nice dark creamy pour with little dark head. Tastes sweet, just like the type says. A little off coffee taste in it. Nice refreshing taste for a stout. Not overly heavy.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 31, 2007
12 oz bottle. Dark ebony with a coaxed, but pretty, creamy tan head with spots of espresso. Standard nose of coffee, chocolate and musty Concord. Begins with a very pronounced bitter mocha bite paired with a sharp carb tang. Body almost medium. Dry, a bit oily, with hints of walnuts, Bakers chocolate and celery leaf as it fades.

12oz bottle from a long time ago, whoever sent it, thanks. Shared with Joshy Shipper. Pours black with a thin half finger light brown head. The nose is robust, malty, with chocolate and coffee as well, doesnt smell exactly like a sweet stout persay but its appealing. Taste is sweet and coffee like. A little one dimensional. Pretty good overall but a little lacking, not as good as tres by any means.

Bottle. This looks and smells so good Im having a hard time getting my thoughts typed before diving in. Aromas are roasted malt, chocolate, a little bit of peat and mustiness, and just a touch of strong black coffee. Body is dark and thick looking and the head has all but died down by now. As I go back and take another sniff, I notice a charcoal and bourbon presence there. My first thoughts are that it has a little thinner mouthfeel than I expected and the flavor comes off as much more burnt and charcoaly than anticipated, too. I like that, but I would have guessed more oatmeal and chocolate tones would be the central stage show.
