12 oz. bottle, no bottling/freshness date, but I know this is the new label 2007 release, sampled in a pint glass. The ABV is 8%. Poured as black as motor oil with a tight, compact brown head that slowly settled into a thin sudsy lacing. A light amount of splotchy lace at the top of the glass. Lush smelling nose of heavily roasted dark malts and milk sugar. The smells really mesh together well, roasted dark coffee, lightly burnt chocolate and sweet milky lactose, quite appealing. There is enough of an low temperature warmth to make its 8% ABV noticeable on the tongue and in back of the mouth. Smooth moderate feeling body with an airy creaminess, this is one easy sipper, quite pleasant on a cold mid-December night. The milk sugar lactose flavor does a lot to sweeten the roasted, almost burnt, dark malts, easing their nature malty bitterness. Dark roast coffee and bittersweet dark chocolate buoyed by the sugary milk flavor make this cream stout unique and highly enjoyable. In the aftertaste some coffee nuttiness lingers a bit in the palate. An excellent holiday stout from Dark Horse, recommended if you like dark roasted tasting malty stouts.

12 oz. bottle shared by csbosox at the 12/7 tasting at Indras. Pour is black, with a quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma of creamy, roasty coffee notes, and some sourness. Taste is a nice creamy mouth feel with some roasty coffee around the edges. Good flavor start to finish.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Pours a beautiful ebony with a small but frothy brown head. Chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, Breyers vanilla. Nice creamy texture and fairly full-bodied. A little of the Whoppers malt balls in the flavor but not as sweet. Quite quaffable.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Pours jet black with a small, creamy, brown head that diminishes to a thin ring of bubbles clinging to the edge of the glass. After a couple minutes it looks like a pint glass full of soy sauce. The nose is a subdued blend of dark roasted malt and light chocolate. The mouthfeel is on the light side of medium-bodied and fairly thin yet silky soft, transitioning into a roasted, sour finish. Roasted dark and chocolate malt are complimented by a solid sweet-sour lactose note. The lactose, however, is a bit too much for my tastes. While I like this one, I enjoyed Dark Horses "One" a lot more.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Bottle from hoppymeal. Pours a very dark, oil colored black with the slightest of head. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate and molasses. Very smooth and velvety mouthfeel...the creamy milk is very evident. Flavor is less roasted than the aroma, but tons of coffee, chocolate and some darker fruits in there as well. Solid finish. Thanks hoppymeal.

demitriustown (1186) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2007
12 oz bottle: Aroma is big on chocolate, toffee, malts, with some caramel and heavy cream scent to this brew. Pours a pitch black with a small tan head the diminishes into nothing. Taste is got a really good milky, creamy, roasted coffee note to this brew. A bit of chocolate, light nut notes, and a bit of caramel. The palate is awesome with the a creaminess to it that Ive never had with any other beer. A definate good sweet stout that hits the spot right now.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an oily black with a thin creamy tan ring. The aroma entices with roasted malts, sweet chocolate, molasses, and some dark fruits. The flavor is heavy on the roasted character with some coffee and chocolate in there as well. The mouthfeel is perfect for the style; medium/full bodied and creamy smooth. Another fine offering from Dark Horse.
