4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2007 Bottle at RBESG 07 ... Deep Black ... Nice deep fruityness with a little meatyness in nose ... zingy fruity mouth feel ... Lovely juicy ... very sweet ... good balance. rich and complex. The 1/2 Idjit was nice but im definitly a full Idjit. I do hope this is at Stockholm beer festival I truly think this beer deserves a second examiniation.

Riktigt fin redan nu och jag kan tänka mig att om man låter denna stout några år kommer den bli magnifik.
Ordentligt svart. Lite kolsyra. Fruktig och söt i doften. Fyllig smak av frukt och choklad. Mastig, len och rund i gommen.

Bottle, RBESG 07.
Port/sherry, strong warming alcohol feeling, prunes and cherries. Blends into a beautiful beer, which I’ll explore further at the first opportunity.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(RBESG 2007, Glasgow. Bottle) Blac color, almost no head. Malty, milky vanilla aroma, chocolate and rather roasted. Malty, milky, creamy and vinous flavor, oily as hell. Maybe a bit too sweet. Strong oily, malty finish. Alcohol is there but is still very well hidden.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, RBESG Grand Tasting 07. Dark brown, thin tan head. Roasted malty, slightly overmalted, some summery fruit with some vanilla and espresso tones. Mouth is very roasted malty, with some milk chocolate balance. Slips down well, but coating on the palate (oily?). Touch on the one-dimensional side. Finishes sweet and dry, deliciously.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled at RBESG 2007. A brown beer with a red shine and no head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted malty and alcohol. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of soy sauce, caramel, coffee, cinnamon, wood, and alcohol. The body is strong, and the alcohol burns in the throat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A Mes rate:
Bottle at RBESG. Pretty much exactly as its little half brother but with some extreme knobs on. The extra alcohol is the only thing that stands out compared between the two and for me it tips it just a little too far into the extreme. Excellent beer all the same.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at RBESG ’07. Dark brown, no head. Aroma of cocoa liqueur. Sweet and very potent. Concentrated flavour of cocoa powder, red berries and brandy. Full bodied is an understatement, it’äs massive. Still a bit young, so it’s rather sugary. A hugely warming beer with loads of character.
