Draught on the RBSG bus. Opaque black liquid with small mocca/tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, fresh coffee, oak, bourbon, toasted marshmallows and licorice. Nice. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with lots of coffee and some dark chocolate and oak. Full bodied with medium carbonation. Nice stuff, good way to start the day.

Thanks to Alesmith for providing this for RBSG 2012 and to t0rin0 for scoring . Lots of nice coffee aroma and flavor, it’s deadly smooth, an excellent beer.

Draught on the RBSG bus. Great oily legs on black beer with a bit of lace. Nose of coffee, vanilla, wooden barrel, roasted malts. flavor got very nice as it opened up, with lots of vanilla from the barrel, coffee, chocolate, and roasty malts, and a bit of Coke. Very smooth and full. Lovely.

From tap on the RBSG bus. Pours dark brown to black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malty, coffee, light wooden and dense coffee. Bitter, crisp hoppy and looads of coffee. Smooth dark malty and lingering coffee.

On tap on the RBSG bus. Good way to start the day... Pours black with root beer edges and a fluffy light-brown head. Smells like brownies and chocolate chip cookies. Deep cookie dough, really vivid and very different from the garden variety Speedway. Flavor has elements of chocolate syrup and semisweet chocolate, along with a lovely toasted oaky note that dries out the finish. The coffee is strong and lends a solid bitterness. Really a fantastic beer, a hit in every aspect.

Tap on the RBSG bus at 10am. Muddy black to ink pour. Small tan foam. Nose is thick caramel, thick peppermint, salted caramel pot de creme. Taste is rich, tangy, lactic, and heavy on dark chocolate and lemon acid. Not too dense. Easy to enjoy. Nose opens up nicely as it warms. Thanks t0rin0 and AleSmith for this treat. Caramel and butterscotch balance bitter chocolate and lemon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
