Style | ABV
Madison River brewed this beer with the purpose of giving people a quality Stout in the Winter season. It has had such a positive response MRBC has decided to brew this beer and keep it a permanent fixture in our lineup all year. This stout provides a bigger body, but due to its oatmeal influence is not overpowering. In turn, this stout is balanced and smooth, giving you the opportunity to taste authentic ingredients without being too heavy in the finish.

Pours a deep dark brown with a big, fluffy tan head and good retention. Looks the part. Aroma is pretty typical for the style – malty and musty with some chocolate malt showing through. The flavor is defined by the bold roastyness with a nice balance between bitterness and sweetness. Some chocolate character and a hint of licorice show before the malt drops off into a clean, slightly dry finish. Mouthfeel is smooth with moderate carbonation.
Overall, I enjoyed this, especially for the reasonable price. It was a little shallow on flavor/body for a 7.5% stout, and the finish is a bit clean for my preferences. But definitely a beer I wouldn’t mind having again. Seems like it would be a great candidate for nitro

Poured from a bomber into a conic pint glass in high elevation Kalispell, Mont. Reviewed live.
A- One and a half finger mocha-colored head. Erodes in about one minute. Some wet lacing. Black body.
S- Chocolate, toffee. Pretty bland.
T- Quite watery, chocolate though.
M- Semi-creamy and dry finish.
O- There just isn't much to say about this beer. Love the style, dislike this example.

Drunk at Philipsburg Brewfest 2013
Appearance- almost completely pitch black, light toffee cream head
Smell- Dark and roasty toasty malts, the lightest of hop notes
Taste- dark roasted malt with hint of smoked astringency, oat characters
Mouthfeel- full bodied with watery persistence
Overall- smooth oatmeal velvet, nice stout with minimal carbonation for those who like it real slick, big on the toast bitter
Serving type: on-tap

this beer pours out looking like chocolate milk then turns to a dark opaque black as the nitro settles out and leaves a nice tight tan head
this beer smells mostly of faint coffee/roasted malts and hints of chocolate
the flavor here is mostly a semi dry type stout with hints of black and roasted malts with a faint hop bitterness at the end.
the finish is great on this one, the nitro makes for such a sily smooth beer that is again helped by the oatmeal in it to bring a really great feeling beer that goes down with a nice thick coating action on the tongue and leaves a subtle roastedmalt in the mouth, great for a cold night
