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 bakers 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. Im not a big sweet stout guy, but this one is impressive. Definitely near the top of the genre.

ketchepillar (1189) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 2, 2008
This is really much better once its pretty close to room temp. Aroma is all dark malts, and a little sweet. Taste has a lot of chocolate and a lot of coffee, nice roasted malts, but also some sourness which is disagreeable. Finishes like a dream though-all of above minus the sourness. The lactose doesnt really show up all that much. Mouthfeel is too thin.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2008
Sweet, slightly sour scent. Notes of milk, chocolate, coffee, burnt sugar, and dishwater. Not entirely agreeable. Taste is off, as is the mouthfeel.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Bottle: Dark, silky black pour...very enticing. Notes of marshmallow cream, chocolate, brown sugar and a lingering smokiness to the roasted malt base. Medium-full bodied mouth feel...still retains some of that creaminess. Initially dry yet the silky chocolate aspects come through on the delivery and bring the subtle smoke and sweet fruitiness with it. Very solid.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Pours flat and dark black. Aroma is chocolate, cream, and lactose. Taste is about the same.......sweet chocolate, milk, sugar. Pretty good.

prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Poured flat. Might be a bad bottle, well see. Im going to have to re-rate after my cold is gone anyway. Almost as good as its big brother Black Bier. Just enough sweetness from the lactose to keep it from being too rich and dark. Nice.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2008
12oz bottle. Aroma of chocolate, berries, cream, and coffee. Black as hell with very small dark brown head that fully diminished and left no lace. Flavor is sweet then bitter with chocolate, roasted coffee, pipe tobacco and molasses. Palate is full bodied and oily flat. This is a big beer with lots of good flavors. Really good but the lactose is going to kill me.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2008
Black with thin dirty brown head. Strong coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavor is bitter coffee, milk chocolate, roasty malt, smoke, hazelnut. Finishes slightly bitter, creamy. Nice carbonation.

xmarcnolanx (930) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Aroma is dark milk chocolate, and this strange bock-like blending of dark cocoa and this ineffable goodness that I can only describe as port- but less winey. Flavor is dark chocolate, port, bitter cocoa. This is very straightforward, but damn good.
