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.

Sammy (8414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2007
At the brewpub.A standard all-year stout and its a very decent one, although no oatmeal or RIS on today. Lots of head and lace on black. Bit burnt on purpose, bold expresso and chocolate. A good coffee. Appropriate carbonation as is true on their entire lineup. Medium plus mouthfeel.

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2007
Sample at the brewpub: Pours pitch black with a thin light beige head. Spotty lacing. Roasted malt and coffee aroma. Medium, smooth body with a nice roasted coffee character, along with some malt and chocolate flavors. The finish is creamy and sweet yet it leaves a fairly bitter coffee aftertaste behind. Not too shabby.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2006
On tap at the brewpub on 4/27/06: Pours a thick dark opaque with a frothy tan nitro head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel and roasted malts. Body starts with a good, sweet maltiness, lots of dark chocolate, roasty grains and some lactose. Nicely-balanced and enjoyable.

deyholla (6514) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 17, 2010
On tap. Pours a dark brown, slightly opaque around the edges, with a gray head. Aroma has a nice roasted malt note with underlying bitter chocolate and a bit of nuttiness. Flavor is dry with roasted malts and bitter chocolate towards the finish.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2005
Very dark brown body, beige ring. The roasted grains strike in immediately from the first whiff. Floury dry nose containing a vast amount of dark chocolate and burnt malts. No sweetness noticeable in here. Extremely dry palate, kinda tart yet roasty which I rarely like the pair together, but I must recognize this is a neatly executed stout and deserves good marks. Soft medium body, ample carbonation.
