Smokey, full-bodied and nutty. The perfect winter beer to warm up to, I think...........

DalzAle (2017) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Bottle. Dark black pour, a little lasting gray head and an aroma of milk sugar and a little chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, some sweet sugar and chocolate with a very thin body. Decent beer, wished it was a little more hearty.

1/14/13 Bottle Four Firkins SLP, MN. Pours jet black with disappating tan head, very little lacing. Aroma is oats and slight raw cocoa. Taste is grain roasted malt bitter cocoa aftertaste. Very palatable and it hides the 8% well. Very smooth and drinkable, not the best choco stout I’ve had but pretty darn good.

July 21, 2012 on tap at All Pints North. Dark brown pour with some head. Chocolate, roasted malt, caramel and oats/grain in aroma and taste. This changed my view of Rush River for sure.
