Dark Horse Fore Smoked StoutFrom Dark Horse – Number Four – Brewed with all malted barley and peat malt (smoked malt). This beer is full bodied with chocolate, roasted barley flavors, and a smokey almost BBQ finish.

Dark Horse Brewing – Dark Horse Fore Smoked Stout – 12 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 8% abv.

Appearance:  Pours a dark brown. Not much a head to speak of, just a tan ring around the edges.

Aroma:  A mixture of sweet chocolaty malt and smokey ham. Depending one which time I put my nose in the glass, I get one or the other. Light herbal hopping.

Taste:  Slightly burnt roast, smokey malt, not as hammy as it is on the nose. Dark chocolate and herbal hop finish with medium duration.

Mouthfeel:  Full bodied, moderate carbonation.

Overall:  Very tasty, smokey without being a smoke-bomb, would love to have more of this.
