Russian River Brewing Co OVL Stout
What the brewers say
"Soft roasted notes in the aroma and flavor with a clean, dry finish."
What our panel thought
“A fantastic nose of light coffee and chocolate. Hint of herbal hop. Light coffee roast with fairly forward acidity and light acrid notes. Light toast and biscuit malt, but more of a burnt-toast vibe overall.”
What our editors thought
“A bit of chicory coffee offers an earthy roast nose with bits of wet tree bark and cacao nib. The sip is light, letting the dark malt and carbonic acidity attack quickly, without much body or softness to buffer it.”
