4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hand-bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has strong notes of cedar wood as well as medium notes of roasted malt, smoke, and soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of cedar, roasted malt, smoke, as well as medium notes of soy sauce, roasted malt, and alcohol, leading to a very dry, roasted, cedar wood, and alcoholic finish. Thanks a lot MadsBerg for sharing.

RBESG 2010, Grand Tasting, bottle
Black oil color; the darkest brown head ever seen. Aroma of roasted malt, very peppery, leathery too. Strong roasted malt and liquorice flavor, strong body, the mouthfeel is a bit oily; peppery, with black coffee too. The final is strong but less bold than expected; too much roasted malt and coffee. Very good, original, not impressive.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at ChrisO "I’m Trying to see the Stool" pre GBBF2010 tasting. OK, this wasn’t intentional but I seem to have given this beer the lowest score. Black with a thin tan head. Too much cedar for me. It even flirts into Palma violets on the finish. I mean there just isn’t enough of the base beer coming through, so it’s completely out of balance. I guess I just don’t like cigar boxes. Sorry Ken. But thanks for bringing it.
