Dark Horse Brewery – FORE Smoked Stout – 5.7 Smokestacks of Happiness


Here’s a robust, knock your socks off, kind of beer. Fore Smoked Stout wow’d the 3 newly ordained ministers just by watching it pour. It pours like syrup, coating the inside of the glass with a sweet smelling, used motor oil colored libation. So dark that my scientifically designed beer light failed to pass the 1/2 centimeter mark (a true 7 out of 7 Smokestacks in Opacity rating). Tastes that come through include dark chocolate, peanuts, syrup, malt, and peat. A meal in itself with a strong after taste. Incredible. Final score = 5.7 Smokestacks.
