Growler at RBwG 2013 Grand Tasting. Interesting stuff. Not very sweet, some dark malts, dry burnt bread. Some tang. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, a bit astringent. Not much going on here.

Growler... RBWG 2013… Pours Zhukov-black with a small, creamy, beige head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma is a complicated journey through a maze of dark chocolate, fudge, charcoal, sour-cherry skin and crisp, fruity, high-pitched acidity. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The tangy, roasty flavor is constructed of espresso, dark chocolate, burnt malts, tobacco, sour cherries. Finishes tart and roasty. Thanks to burg326 (Adam) for sharing his growler and for helping brew this baby up at CCB!

Flip-top growler thanks to the actual Adam that won this contest at CCB. Thanks! Inky pour that has lost some carbonation over the months. Essentially flat and uncarbonated. Nose is a bit green coffee, moving to heavier roast, blackened char, some aggressive black patent and coffee malts. Taste though is spot on still- light sour black cherry, lemon acid, red wine character, slightly lactic to balance. Vinous overall, moreso than expected. Quite nice.

Growler to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting (shared by burg326, who made the beer - thanks Adam!). Looks good; pitch black with mocha lacing. Smells and tastes solid; dark malt and roast with a hint of cherry. Good on the palate too. Good beer.

Growler during RBWG. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is cherry skin and chocolate. Medium mouth with nice roast, cocoa and light cherry flavor, very good.

Tampa, Fl - on tap at the CCB Tasting Room. Tar-black pour, thick mocha colored head, nice lacing. Aroma has some fresh black potting soil, a bit of espresso and some creosote. Flavor has licorice notes, a bit of creosote, chicory, bitter unsweetened chocolate, but lacking in any cherry presence. Nice chalky mouthfeel. Nice.

First thanks to the Brass Tap and Cigar City for letting me have the opportunity to brew this beer for winning a contest at The Brass Tap. Second, thanks to Ben, he was my handler for the day and I was able to learn a lot for my first all grain brewing experience. Had this many times at Cigar City and The Brass Tap, poured a dark black color with aromas of coffee, chocolate, some roast, earth, and feint, I mean feint cherry. Big flavors of chocolate and coffee, at the back end there is a slight robitussin cherry cough syrup. You have to really look for the cherry flavor, but as you have 3 or 4 of them in a sitting it is more noticeable, could also just the alcohol playing with my brain telling me it is there. Personally I think this took a prime duce on the cherry flavor and was hoping there would be more, but overall a solid stout and would love to brew this again. I know I might be overrating this beer, but it was mine.
