Dark brown color with quick dissipation of lace.
Smell is subtle, I'm not getting much there.
Taste is a big bang of chocolate chips and oatmeal. Some wonderful vanilla notes too. Yummy.
Mouthfeel lingers for about 10 seconds as it coats my tongue.
Overall this is one very tasty beer from Rush River finally available in a bottle. (You could sometimes find this on tap if you were lucky.) A tasty beer to help us get through the winter. Thank you, Rush River!

To be blunt, I ALWAYS expect a stout to be able to go stride for stride with a cigar - not necessarily a maduro - but at least a full flavored brown wrapper. THAT SAID, I do not review beers while having a cigar.
A: Opaque dark brown. thin head, thin lacing
S: Faint caramel
T: Faint flavors of caramel malt, with a sweet malt afterbite. No chocolate.
M: Lightweight body
O: The appearance and smell alone told me this beer would be on the LITE end of the stout style. Blindfolded I would not have guessed a stout - I might have guessed a porter but it is was to the light side of that style. It lacked the complexity gamut of the stout style and I would find this beer more acceptable as a porter. Without the blindfold - I might have even guessed it to be a black lager served cold enough. I generally test beers within their style temperatures. Ales, Stouts and Porters in the 55F and the pilsners and lagers in the 40F range. I think this is my first Rush River Brewing review - I would certainly like to try another offering of theirs in another style as some brewers are finessed in specific styles - much like chefs or bakers.
Good luck pleasing me next time Rush River Brewers!
