RBESG pt 18. Moncada. Grand tasting. Hazy deep amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry. Fine carbonation. Bitter wood and bourbon. Alcohol spice and heat. Brandy laced caramel. Dry hot finish. Clunky.

Scopey (7054) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle thanks to Leighton at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. It pours deep mahogany brown with minimal head. The nose is vanilla, toasted coconut, woody, booze, oxidised edge, old toffee and fruit cake. The taste is big, boozy, bourrrrbon, hot spicy alcohol, toffee, wood, raisin and tangy dried fruits with a lingering hot finish. Full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Damn that is hot. Big on the bourbon front. Probably too much.

RichTheVillan (3135) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle during RBESG; reddy brown pour very little head just a thin bubbly dark beige, quite a boozy bourbon aroma, tasted very sweet with big booze, caramel and a hint of dark fruit. Cool label though.

Ferris (4482) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle - Boozy bourbon and dark sugar sweetness. Muddy brown with a beige head. Dark caramel and chocolate and a bit of booze. Although the nose was a bit harsh, the taste was better balanced.

harrisoni (13844) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle grand tasting RBESG14. Sweet funky aroma. Bourbon. Odd in mouth. Hot. Bit all over the place. Not a good beer. Sweet bourbon. No real beer taste.

Niall73 (1833) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle at rbesg. Pours a reddy brown. Boozy, dark fruit aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Spicy, woody, rummy... It's tasty enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmagnus87 (2438) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Sampled at RBSG. From notes. Caramel and toffee with a good dose of roasty malt and bourbon soaked oak. A little vanilla in there too. Very good. I was not expecting it to taste like this at all.

Taste again good caramel malt some toffee and faint bakers chocolate and finished woody and warm. Palate is full slick with a chalky dry finish.
