Milk chocolate / chocolate milk in the aroma with some dark chocolate, brownies, cake... Goes down too easy. Palate is insane, makes the beer. Awesome stout. If you have the chance and like a sweet milk stout, pick it the fuck up

Black pour from draft at emporium - white head. Very sweet and sugary. Milky. Slightly cherry. Wasn't as good as I hoped - but good nonetheless

Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs). Looks good; a fairly opaque dull dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, vanilla, chocolate, oak, and a bit of bourbon. Tastes like it smells with a smooth medium full-bodied mouthfeel. Good stuff!

Pours an inky black with a thin dark tan head. Aroma is full of bourbon. Taste is smooth with whiskey on the front end and a nice mix of roasted malt and dark chocolate on the back end. Really good bourbon barrel beer.

Dark brown pour with a brown head. The aroma has vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate. It has a full body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet with a lightly roasted finish.

hopscotch (9816) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Draft… RBSG 2014This beer rocks!… Pours pitch-black with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The nose is a lavish swirl of toasted coconut, vanilla, hot fudge and bourbon. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with an afterthought of carbonation. The flavor offers toasted coconut, a lot of sticky vanilla beans, a hint of bourbon and a mild measure of burnt bitterness. Finishes singed and carbonic. World class imperial stout!

decaturstevo (5300) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Black/brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is large sweet chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malt. Large sweet chocolate start and a nice hop bitter. Full/medium bodied with good carbonation. I should have more to say about this very nice beer
