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!
