After trying to find the only Rush River beer that had eluded me, I finally came across it at two different bars in River Falls.
A - A relatively weak pour by the bartender delivers a dark jet black body that omits no light whatsoever. A light tan head rose a half finger thick and faded to a ring after a couple of minutes. Taking into account the weak pour, I assume the head would look better, but the body looked good regardless.
S - Not the strong nose I was expecting. While I was not in the optimal setting to get a good whiff of this beer, nothing stood out to me. Malts are present, along with cocoa, chocolate and a slight cream aspect.
T - Much like the smell. Chocolate and cocoa are present along with some faintly roasted malts. A nice cream aspect was also present but overall the beer was too subdued for my liking.
M - Medium bodied with a below average amount of carbonation. Faint roasted malts enter the mouth initially before a slight amount of carbonation arrives to provide a smooth transition into the chocolate and cream aspect of the beer. Finish is pretty smooth but nothing about this beer jumps out and grabs you.
D - This is a beer I will try again, but it's nowhere near as high on my list as Double Bubble. This beer just seems to subdued for my liking. Crank up the roasted malts, chocolate and cream aspects of this beer and let it come to life a bit more.

I was actually really excited for this beer. It looked so tasty, I mean, when can you go wrong when some attempts an oatmeal choco stout? Anyways, this beer really kind of lacked taste. It wasnt bad and neither was the smell or color I guess I just had higher expectations. Not a bad beer for someone who is just starting it in the dark beers world. Otherwise if you know beers, grab the founders oatmeal stout. Cheers.
