TRUMP! Wow, this brew pours black as 30wt with 100k miles on it. The creamy spattered froth only rises a fingers width, but has a beautiful bronze color. Head retention is a little short lived and rduces to a partial yet fluffy lace. Aromas of creamy roasted leathery malts makes my mouth water. Full nectar w/ soft and velvety residual effers creates a rather sensuous brew. The brew glides in silky then turns to velvet on the way down. The mildly sweet flavor profile starts out w/ heavily roasted viscous malts. Then the defined asprin bittering component kicks in to balance. Roasted coffee bean, bitter cocoa, leather, and bit-o-black cherry. The finish is long and savory leaving behind a tastey roasted cocoa residue and a perfect bittering component. Highly recommended. lcdumchus (19) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Nice pour, thick and viscous with a nice aroma. Wonderful flavor with hints of chocolate and coffee. An excellant stout. Beckerboy (16) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2013
This is a delicious stout. Great cocoa coffee nose. Thick dark brown head. It has great viscosity in the mouth. Rich roasted malt flavors that match the nose. Had it on tap. Arek (1138) - Zielona Góra & Wrocław, POLAND - APR 29, 2015

Czarne, mętne piwo z ciemnobeżową, obfitą i puszystą pianą oraz przyjemnym, czekoladowym, lekko przypalanym aromatem. W smaku gęste i intensywne, wyraziście wytrawne, mocno palone i kawowe.
Lovely scent of sweetness and chocolate. Celestial good taste of coffee, chocolate, sweetness and a little soy sauce. Wonderful bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Enjoyable beer. Very pleasant to drink. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Inky black pour with a substantial light brown head. Sweetish cream aroma with some roasty in the background. Oh wow! Rich and creamy, silky with lots of velvet - they have not skimped on the oats here. Nice amount of roasted flavor, not too sweet, with a fine bitterness intact. This is a great stout! Thanks Brad.

Excellent head with the dark creamy mouthfeel. There is a complex flavor profile that is roasty, yet smooth. slipy120 (81) - Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2011
One word. Awesome! poured opaque from a bottle bought at Siciliano’s in Grand Rapids, MI. Just what you would want from a stout and more. Competitors better keep and eye on Dark Horse. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2010 Draft at Jerry’s. Black with big, foamy, chocolate shake head / Winey nose of bittersweet chocolate and oatmeal / Medium to full body, creamy, with good balance and long, chewy, dry, finish / Toasty flavors of tobacco, bittersweet chocolate, oatmeal, vanilla, and dark roast coffee / Not super complex as the best of them, but very good. tastebud (8) - Verona, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 11, 2010 does not count
Aroma is of coffee and roasty dark malts. Medium bodied and lightly sweet with a wee o chocolate on the finish. One of my favorite stouts...love these guys!
