DATE TASTED: February 8, 2014... GLASSWARE: Samuel Smith pint...OCCASION: the reading of A Storm of Swords begins... APPEARANCE: jet black body; unenthused thin brown head; tracings are basically sporadic bubbles... AROMA: some peat and smoke, but predominantly a strange combination: lactic, doughy malts and vanilla sugars argue with strikingly astringent turpentine chemicals--a challenge to take in... PALATE: medium-bodied, slightly dry; rather flat up front, with a beefy after breath ...TASTE: milky, yet the alcohol seems to impede a smoother flavor; some rum elements mingle with a plasticine undertone... OVERALL: This seems a forced attempt at steeping ABV at the cost of taste and experience; River Horse does Jersey proud with some offerings, but this brew is negatively aggressive--upon completing this review, I drank a second and only found the beer more troublesome to place in a positive light....

12 oz. bottle poured into a nonic

A- Pours black, but the smallest bit of light shines through showing some brown highlights. A little yeast floats around. Brown head shows a pretty good cascade for a non-nitro, and hangs round a half finger.

S- Dark roasted malts. Coffee and cocoa. A little burnt sugar.

T- Coffee with sugar, mocha. Very subtle roast, but sweet all around.

M- Medium body, very sweet. I expected a little more creaminess for an oatmeal milk stout, however.

O- All around a good beer. Pretty sweet, but the roast balances it a bit.
