In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Mad River Brewing Company Steelhead Extra Stout

“Initial sweetness, followed quickly by sharp roast and chocolate flavors that emerge nicely as it warms. Moderate hops bitterness and moderate astringency in the finish. Hops bitterness is mild with hints of citrus but carries through in the finish with a slight sweetness. Some subtle esters and spice as it warms, which works well with the underlying complex roasted malt character.”
