Growler... RBSG 07... Pours dark with a mid-sized, frothy, tan head. This wit’s aroma is of the usual suspects (bread dough, orange peel, coriander, banana), but with a nice dose of cocoa thrown into the mix. Spicy, caramel flavor with moderate sweetness, mild bitterness and lots of coriander and cocoa. Light bodied and pretty thin with medium carbonation. Crisp, spicy, chocolate finish. Strange brew!

Skyview (5208) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Thanks to JK and Badgerben for bringing this growler south from Duluth to the Twin Cities. Sampled at the RBSG ’07 Grand Tasting room, pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, cloves, and a touch of vegetable margarine. Taste of roasted wheat malt, yeast, coriander, and some bubblegum. Palate is light bodied, carbonated with a slight metalic feel. Finish is dry malty, with some spice aftertaste.

yespr (31178) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2007
RBSG07. From growler. Pours black with a creamy head. Aroma is butterish, coriander and bubblegum yeast. Flavour is wheaty with notes of yeast. Malty finish. Solid but nothing really great. I had this at the end of the evening, so I guess even though the cap was on the growler it had oxidised a bit.

RBSG 2007, dark and tan: spicy nose with caramelly taste. Very syrupy finish.

argo0 (11533) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2007
(RBSG07, growler) Cola black body with beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, some sourness, wheat, light clove. Taste is medium sweet, wheat, light caramel, coriander. Watery light body. I assume this is a stab at a Tarwebier.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2007
I will echo JK--at the brewpub they had this labeled a "white night". Very interesting beer. Dark black, clinging head. Interesting flavors, suggesting of curry (that coriander, perhaps). It works interesting things with food pairings. Worth a try. (on tap at brewpub)

RBSG 2007: Poured dark brown with a tan head. Aroma, cloves, some spice, sweet malts. Flavor, very spicy, caramel, some floral notes. Sweet and spicy on the finish.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Sampled at the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting. Black beer with balanced malt and hops. dry malt finish with a bit of spice. Better than I expected.
