Never thought I’d get a chance to try this so I was excited when it showed up at a tasting last week. Aroma is rockin on this and I can smell it from across the table. More on the fruity side of smells with some plum and cherry. Slight sweetness. Really smooth overall but the finish is slighlty bitter and metallic hops. Deep amber color. Full bodied and fruity plum and raisin flavors.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 30, 2008
RBSG 2008. Pours mahogany with a small tan head. Sweet caramel and soft milk chocolate up front. This bottle carries a touch of oxidation giving a lighter body, starting downhill for sure.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy ruby color with a decent tan colored head. Aroma is sweet caramel malts, light cherry, nutty. Flavor is wet cardboard, light cherry notes, sweet caramel, maple, alcohol. Palate is full bodied, medium to mild carbonation, finished sweet. A little oxideized, but overall fairly good.

hapjydeuce (931) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 18, 2008
RBSG ’08. Sampled from an unlabeled bottle at the Pizza Port Grand Tasting. Clear amber color with no head and low carbonation. Lots of caramel notes in the aroma. Flavor is sweet with cherry and toffee tones. A bit of wet cardboard and oxidation in the finish. Didn’t find out how old this was. Hot finish and a bit stingy on the palate. Medium drinkability.

2.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Glouglouburp (5992) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2008
In short: A past due-date maderized extra-sweet and fruity beer of some kind.
How: Bottle 22oz. Vintage, age unkown, too old. Sample at Cathschlag birthday party tasting.
The look: Cloudy light-brown body with almost no head
In long: Nose of big caramel. Extra-thick syrupy body, tropical fruits in thick caramel. Alcohol bite. A little cardboard. No hops bite to speak of. I could feel that this beer once was something but this bottle had a maderization impression (with Sherry notes and all) that was rather annoying, almost sickening. Dogwood Forgettable Incident.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 16/20
illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle at RBSG. Pours amber with a beige head. Sugary malt nose. This has cellared very well, as this has a nice maple, caramel flavor with the right balance of sweetness and mellowed bitterness. Not too hot either.

3.5
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
JK (4400) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Sweet. Mellowed hops, like it has been aged. Some caramel. In the line of Full Sail barleywine. A good combination of the hops and sweet malt with dark fruit.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2008
Hand-bottled bomber, thanks after4ever. Pours hazy orange with a lacy beige head. Caramel, nut fig taste. Full body and light carbonation. Dry woody finish.

StefanSD (2112) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle at RBSG grand tasting. Thanks to whoever brought it. Pours cloudy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of roasted barley and sweet dried fruits. The flavor was robust with more roasted barley and dark fruits. The mouthfeel was full and malty. The finish was long and dry. Overall: I had no idea this was a retired beer--too bad, these brewers were on the right track.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle shared by Aspidites, pours deep amber with a thin off white head. Rich, sweet nose with dried fruit and sugars added to the sweet maltiness. The flavor was the same with a bit of heat. Creamy on the palate.
