Thank you, Alex, for getting me this beer. I am very pleased to have this beer in my possession. Poured into a tulip glass. A one finger head that has ok retention and no lacing on the glass. The color of the head is dark tan creamy and foamy. The color of the beer is dark brown to black and the clarity of the beer is opaque. Some carbonation bubble is visible on the glass.
A dark roast malt, toffee, mild coffee, milk chocolate, cereal, touch of fruitiness, grainy, and subtle hop aroma with some earthy, wood, and citrus.
Dark roasted malt, coffee, toffee, molasses, milk chocolate, cereal/grainy, fruitiness, earthy, resin, and some citrus.
The body of the beer is medium, the mouthfeel is medium with a touch of chewiness, the carbonation is also medium, and the finish is medium plus.
I really like the flavor of the beer, a typical oatmeal stout; however, the beer has a porter body style. I would have like to see a bit more body to the beer and more chewiness. Overall good beer and I am enjoying it very much.

A chocalte style candy like stout. Rich in color and bold head. sweet in flavor and smell. Comes across a little bigger than its 6.7% would state. Worth a try for a miild of the road stout.

12 oz. bottle, no "bottled on" date. Served at about 50° F in a tulip. Pours jet black with 2 fingers of tan head.

The nose is very inviting. I get roasted malts, bakers chocolate, and a touch of the lactose.

This is very well-balanced and light for a stout. I get dark chocolate, a faint cherry or prune-like sweetness, some grassy hops, and a hint of vanilla. The chocolate comes through most in the finish.

The mouthfeel is medium. If this was just a little richer/fuller, it would be an A+ milk stout.

Still probably the best beer I've had from River Horse and a beer I'd return to.
