This beer is black in color with an ample amount of oats to give it a smooth finish. This ale has a very complex grain bill and packs a punch with an ABV of 8.5%. All natural cocoa is also added to make this stout a fantastic experience.

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.

No more than a hint of chocolate, but this is a drinkable stout more than a dessert beer. Very nice mouthfeel, smooth and silky. Rich aftertaste.

12oz bottle from mattyb83, thanks Matt! Pours a black colored body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has a big mix of dark cocoas and sweeter chocolates as well as a moderate roast and light coffee, smooth oats, a touch of vanilla, and a hint of bitterness to the cocoas. Flavor is similar. Lots of smooth oats with plenty of dark cocoas and sweeter chocolates up front before a touch of vanilla comes in. A moderate roast to balance the chocolates as well as a light coffee and touch of toasty grain. Finishes fairly dry with a really nice bittersweet chocolate, a light roast, and a touch of hop bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste following a very smooth, medium body and a soft, moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a really enjoyable sweet stout. Lots of chocolates with a nice mix of bittersweet dark cocoas and sweeter, richer chocolates all balanced well with a solid vanilla and a nice mix of roasts, coffee, and a touch of hops. Great beer.

Bottle - Pours black with a creamy tan head. Nose is chocolatey and milky with a smooth oatmeal graininess. Lightly sweet. Taste brings the chocolate and medium roasted dark malt, lightly chalky with some milkiness and a long bitter finish. Smooth and silky body with medium heft. Good stuff.

12 ounce bottle pours a dark brown color with aromas of roasted malt, oats, cocoa, vanilla, and a hint of coffee. Flavors are much the same with a slightly boozy aftertaste, nice beer overall.
