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 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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 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.
