3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… RBSG 2010… Pours black and mostly clear with a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aromatics present mocha and vanilla. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Nutty, mocha, burnt flavor. Bitterness really steps up to the plate. Singed, bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted and charred malt, chalky notes. Flavor of smooth chocolate, smoked/charred/roasted malt, sweet malt. Ok, but not that interesting flavor-wise and the palate was not as robust as I would have preferred.

Draft at brewpub. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma of ash and dark roasted malts. Medium bodied with soft to medium carbonation. Flavor of black patent malts, cocoa power, and coffee grounds countered by a balancing, but not aggressive bitterness. Dry roasty finish.

From 10-Beer Flight at Arbor Brewing Company Brewpub on December 1, 2008.
Deep dark with a red tint. I don’t smell anything. Bad nose, I suppose. A very light bodied stout, almost watery, but had a lovely flavor. Serious coffee-espresso flavor – so much so that it’s almost smoky. Easy aftertaste – just enough hops to carry the flavor as it goes down.
