RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting.
Black with a thin tan head.
Complex aroma. Chocolate, vanilla, leather, dark fruits.
The flavor is all of the aroma with a great bourbon touch; not too much, not too little. Very well done.

Pours a black with iodine lacing with a rich chocolate head. Aroma of bourbon, a bit of apple, dark roast. Flavor is the same with chocolate roast added. Mouth feel is heavy body with low carbonation and creamy. Overall, in 2 simple words DAMNED GOOD SHIT!!!.....Well, that might have been 3 but you get my drift.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
black motor oil out of the bottle, glop glop glop. Head is standard brick red/brown, large bubbles fading to a ring. Nose is heavy sugar, marshmallow, heavy cocoa. Flavor is soft, cocoa, light pepper, moderately chalky in the sweet, brownie finish. This trend is past poor now, just boring really.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle that poured a thick oily black sludge that left a nice coat of brown on the glass. Aromas of fudge, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, wood, and mellowed bourbon. Flavors are the same but the bourbon steals the show in my book. It is a nice mixture of flavors that left me wanting more. As the beer warmed, more of the bourbon comes out in the flavor, and some spice from the chili’s comes out as well. Great beer overall, I hope they bottle this one again.

Bottle poured into glass. Big thanks to DosBeerigos for sharing this gem! Opened right after the Whiskey Barrel treatment. Another stellar showing from the Cigar City crew. A good amount of bourbon still lingered both in the flavor and aroma. Hasn’t seemed to mellow out at all. Another one that I’m super glad I was able to try.

Thanks to Solan and Degarth for this. From the 32oz growler. Pours a thick black oil like with a dark tan head. Huge aroma of vanilla cookies, chocolate, roasted grain, velvety. Taste is thick roasted grain, chocolate, bourbon, and tangy citrus hops. So powerful that I had to clean the glass twice to get the flavor out. Just a beast of a brew and wonderful.
