Black color with a tall head that falls fairly quickly. Sweet malt and chocolate aroma. Silky, milk chocolate flavor. Not a pronounced oatmeal taste, but definitely had an effect on the mouthfeel. Some roasted malt, but generally quite sweet without being cloying. Very nice. nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2011
12oz bottle, says 8%. Deep opaque brown-black, big luscious rusty beige head. Smooth chocolate aroma. A really well done beer, very sweet and sugary. Big vanilla chocolate tones. The alcohol is impressively hidden. Roasty, mossy, some oily sweetness. Somewhat hollow, watery finish. Overall pretty solid beer. vikingguy (1106) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Great looking beer...Very dark red color, almost pitch black, lots of floating sediment and tall foamy brown head. Aromatic roasted chocolate malt aroma. Taste is rich, roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee. Tastes a lot like the super-dark 60% cacao Geridelli chocolates that my mother-in-law always has on hand. Good bittering hops on the tail end. Just an overall excellent stout. Big, rich, complex, drinkable. Maybe the best stout I’ve had. ryanfolty (2655) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2012
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. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 4, 2015
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.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is chocolate and coffee. Taste is powdered milk chocolate and some coffee. Good.
