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. Ive 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 Im 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, Ive forgotten how well crafted it is.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours a nice deep black with a thin dark tan head. The aroma is mostly of dark, roasted malts with some hints of cream/oatmeal. The flavor hits first with a big, dark roasty character, which then fades away into a simple but very pleasant coffee/dark chocolate finish. Very nice creamy mouthfeel. Very nice stout overall.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2008
Black viscous pour with brown head and spotty lacing. Malty aroma. Big roasted malt flavor quickly yielding to a nice chocolate & coffee flavor. Well Balanced and easy to drink

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin 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.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2008
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.
