Very dark, tan head. Lots of milk chocolate, some molasses, mild roast. Medium to full bodied, drink pretty big for only 5%. Very nice.

07.08.05 RBSG Dark brown, not quite black, lofty tan head. Plain and dry, some raisin. Some sweet caramel is a surprise. Very nice, not nearly as dry or bitter as expected/hoped.

RBSG 2005. Black body, khaki head. (3+) Roasty dark malt aroma carries over to the flavour, surprisingly restrained roast still dominates over incongruously sweet malt. Medium-full bodied.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Pour was black with a thin dense cocoa colored head...smell was roasty coffee and butter bread...taste was almost like a pastry...sweet and malty with a nice bitter coffee finish...this was a surprising gem!!!

3fourths (9137) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Brown color with some light at the edges. Toasty, scorching dry malt flavors, has that Irish/dry stout starchy quality down pat. But past that, it’s just another regular stout: old, musty, airy, dry, a little bland. Didn’t stand up to the quality stouts of the night.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 12, 2005
(22oz bottle) Sampled at RBSG 2005 in Montreal. Pours a thin, frothy yeallow head with a deep, near opaque body. Nose of coffee, motor oil and alcohol. Very gritty cocoa flavour balanced with a hoppy fruitiness in the finish. I really was hoping I’d like this more since I am travelling to Maine later this month...

Whenever I get up to Bar Harbor ME, I make sure that I have at least a few of these at my favourite local bar, and I always bring home at least one case of this absolute MANNA from heaven. Aroma of this beer is deceptively bitter, but still complex, the color is a deep dark, to almost black as any stout should be. But the flavour is fantastic. Not at all bitter, but mildly sweet and chockletey. The beer is full to almost heavy bodied, if you are hungrey when you order one of these with your dinner order, you will be full before the main course arrives. This is definately my favourite!

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 16, 2005
(22 oz. bottle) Huge thick tan head, which ultimately collapses kind of haphazardly so the lacing’s not very good. Deep dark brown body. Aroma of roasted grain and chocolate. More sweet than bitter, mouthfeel a little fizzy, wish you could grab the head a little more. Awesome chocolatey, toasted flavor which lingers a long, long time. Just wish it was a little creamier, but this is real good stuff.
