Bottle to snifter. Pour is dark brown and looks black in glass with a kahki head that fades to a collar/film. Aroma is big bitter chocolate and oats. Taste is nice and bitter sweet with chocolate and cereal notes. Palate is fizzy and slick with a dry bitter finish. Pretty good sweet stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours very dark with decent brown head that fades quickly and not much lacing. Aroma is sweet lactose that is pretty restrained overall and has only a hint of roast to it. Taste is much more sweet than stout - which is fine. Then, a little bit of dark malts and just another hint of roast. Not really any coffee. Palate is noticeably carbonated with a pretty thin, hollow, watery finish - the beer’s only obvious flaw. Still, if this is truly 8%, it’s masked well, and goes down easy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at the Blue Door in St Paul, MN. Pours a clear dark cola brown brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of toasted dark malt, some lactose, oatmeal, chocolate and a hint of coffee. Taste is medium bodied, a little gritty at first with flavors of toasted dark malt, chocolate some floral hops and some powdered sugar. Finish is semi-sweet, a little metallic texture with a slight oatmeal/lactose aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
TAP: at The Blue Door in St. Paul, MN on 3.20.09. Brown pour, but not too heavy. Mild coffee and chocolate on the nose, same on taste, very low hop profile, but a little thin on the palate. Good beer, but just okay for a chocolate stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Creamy, dessert-sweet aroma features chocolate (especially chocolate mousse) and lemon scents. Pours a dark brown with a moderate to large amount of thick, taupe head. Produces good lacing. Flavor is tart, tarry, and bitter at first. Coffee beans. Lemon sourness. Alcohol noticeable in the finish. The taste is not nearly as sweet as the aroma suggests. Milk chocolate or carob emerges upon multiple sips. The taste is that of an artificial chocolate, like a Tootsie Roll. Light bodied and soft in the palate. Rush River Chocolate Oatmeal Stout (that’s how it’s labeled, by the way; no “Nevermore” to be seen on the bottle) is surprisingly interesting, but it is merely interesting and not particularly good.
