3.66/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours two fingers of tan head on a black body. Looks amazing.
The aroma is rich caramel and roasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee.
The taste is dry overall, a little roasted malt and coffee. And a lot of bitterness coming through.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation.
The taste and texture were a bit of a letdown after the outstanding appearance and smell. Still, an enjoyable stout.

4.06/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a dark cola brown that sits neigh black in the glass, and develops a tan, frothy 2 finger head. Good retention, leaving

Smell - Fair chocolate notes, moderate roastiness and some earthy undertones.

Taste - More roasty in flavor than presented on the nose. Roasted coffee upfront, then touches of mocha and milk chocolate come through mid-taste and toward the finish. Underlying spice. A bit of earthy hops and a caramel undertone peek though as the brew warms. Long, lingering and pleasant coffee aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Smooth on the swallow, then dry on the finish.

Overall - American River does it again, adding a nice twist to the traditional Irish dry style with this brew. Really smooth and flavorful. There's no doubt now, American River is easily my favorite local brewery.
