From tasting notes 9-14-11

Appearance: Jet black pour, light cocoa head, super creamy and quite foamy. The head settles very slowly and has very good retention, leaving a thick web of lace down the entire glass. Quite Outstanding!

Smell: Coffee and roasted malts warmly greet the nose, followed by a hint of dark chocolate. Smells heavenly.

Taste: The taste is coffee up front followed by dark chocolate and then roasted malts. The oats really lend a beautiful, rich creaminess to this beer.

Mouthfeel: Thick, creamy mouthfeel; medium-low carbonation, and a dry finish. A very drinkable 8% abv beer.

Overall: A beautiful beer with lots of flavor and a rich, creamy texture that makes this a velvety treat to enjoy anytime of the year. Very well done!

On-tap at Lowertown Bulldog: Served chilled in a pint glass and quite black and thick with a slim tight and tan cap of foam that lifted slightly to a collar ring and some spotty lace.

Aroma is muted but clean of dusty chocolate muffin mix and tender sweet coffee roastyness.

Nice taster, as it warms it really comes into its own and quite milky creamy smooth and chocolately with nice nuances to cocoa powder, oaty sweetness, and slenderized roasted coffee. Smurfed in vanilla hints and black tea arrive late with a bit of dry hops. Its chocolatey rhythm really lasts long and has a nice palate soaking character.

Good steady chocolatey taste and smoothly thick and mildly carbonated medium body. Firm, smooth, soft, milky, and drinkable.

A solid stout from Rush River. Fans of the Young's Dbl chocolate would like this too.

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!

"Rush River Nevermore Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, stout with natural cocoa flavors. Small batch series, unfiltered, unpasteurized." 12 ounce bottle

Fully ebon in appearance, roasted tan head.

Bittersweet nose, roasty-toasty, with cocoa notes below. Getting louder as we go. Very nice.

Taste: Mmmm, good and chocolatey. Starts cocoa and stays cocoa, fading ever gently in the finish. Oatmeal gives it sleek smoothness, very easy on the palate. Very even-tempered, initial sweetness is matched with some bitter, and glides right down.

Alcohol 8 % by vol. Bit of a surprise, there, and it's not easily detected, until...oh, here it comes.

A great beer from Rush River that may change some minds about this under-appreciated brewery.

A: Black with thick brown head. Decent lacing throughout.

S: Chocolate. Hint of roasty malts.

T: BAM! Chocolate! Malty backbone is definitely present but this beer is overrun by bitter, dark chocolate.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, found the creaminess perfect.

D: The ABV is high but well hidden. Wouldn't suggest running through a 6er in an evening.

I actually am in love with this beer and the way it was done. Might be too heavy handed for some folks but I really enjoyed it! Drank all winter long and makes me excited to do so again next year.

Another stellar extra from Aaron, thank you sir. 12oz bottle poured into a Snake River pint glass.

A: Pours very dark and opaque brown/black, but with an unimpressive tan head that fizzles quickly away.

S: An oaty cocoa sweetness rises from the glass, along with some sugary chocolate syrup notes, coffee, and nice dark roasted malt character. Sweet, but not overly so. Nice.

T: Sweet chocolate and caramel to a lesser extent, very nice nice milk chocolate notes on the tongue with a darker chocolate/light roasted malt aftertaste. Very pleasant.

MF: Creamy body, medium silky smooth mouthfeel with a touch of dryness.

O: A good oatmeal stout with nice, though slightly artificial, chocolate notes. Absolutely no alcohol presence, which is nice. I could probably drink a couple of these.
