From the brewer

Dark Star is part of our imperial series and is inspired by the wandering tribes scattered through the terrible journey of time and space and adrift in the dark matter between the spaces of then and now. Dark Star is a dark, mysterious yet silky oatmeal stout of grand proportions balanced by a firm hop handshake...go ahead, enjoy the journey.

Felt a tiny bit over-roasted and sour after the Oakshire. Putting Fremont as the loser is an unusual experience for me.

Somehow I've never had this before. Dry and roasty to good levels, but there's a sour coffee undertone that is never a sign of a stout I'll love. I guess I should stick to the bourbon versions of this from now on.
Dark and starry. Oaty and mealy stouty.
Creamy and good.
