asheft (2549) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Opaque black with a thin, light brown cover of fine bubbles (was this one on nitrogen) that lasted a long time, but not as thick and lasting as Guinness. Aroma of creamy roasted malt with strawberry bubblegum notes. Tangy roast flavour with only moderate sweetness and a very small amount of almost harsh bitterness that comes in very late and is most likely from dark malt(s). Really too sweet for the amount of bittering--I think this beer could use more hops. Medium body and low carbonation.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2005
Served on nitro in a small glass. Black with a thick creamy light brown/almost orange head. Aroma is coffee, and other roasted malts and chocolate with a hint of earthy and slightly fragrant hops. Flavor is a bit watery due to the nitro but otherwise there is a lot of chocolate, roast barley and some residual sweetness from the crystal malts. Medium bodied with a nice mouthfeel. Ive never heard of torrefied barley before, but i bet it helped this beer with the head and mouthfeel.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Nitro. Black in color, dark tan, not quite brown head. Aroma of dark fruit, roast, smoke, and chocolate. Dark malts in the flavor with some cocoa, roast, and black cherry. Medium to full bodied, quite drinkable. A fairly mild and straightforward stout, but very drinkable and pretty tasty.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUL 20, 2005
07.09.05 Tap at brewpub. On nitro. Black. Even, creamy head. Aroma is cofee and dark cherries. Thin bodied yet oily. Coffee with berry, raisin, burnt fruity cereal. Amazingly coating mouthfeel. Interesting at best, but not the finest of what I had from these guys.

DYCSoccer17 (3354) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2005
RBSG05 tap sample. Roasty, toasty aroma with hints of chocolate and a mild sweetness in the nose. Opaque dark brown with a tan/brown head. Roasty, sweet, chocolatey, and silky to start. Very nice and smooth. No alcohol detected at all. A milder Imperial Stout, but it is very serviceable and drinkable.

3fourths (8228) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Modeately thick texture with a light brown head and a deep brown body. Semi-smoky, almost cheese-like scent with charred, smoky malts, lactic qualities - basically not a very complex nose but not disappointing. Cake-like with notes of creamy chocolate, light and candy-like and very smooth on the palate. A very pleasant, smooth chocolate fudge flavor, making this an excellently crafted beer, but average or simple when you get geeky with it and compare it to past favorites.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Pour was black with a thin brown dense head...smell was roasty but almost not even there...taste was sweet molasses and chocolate and hot alcohol...sweet alcohol only in the finish...

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Pours a rich, opaque black with a dense, frothy, well-lacing dark tan nitro head. Aroma is subtle, dry and lightly roasted with a touch of dark fruits. Body has nice viscosity, rich roasty caramel sweetness and a good bittering hoppy presence. Finishes sticky, semi-dry, and lightly cloying with a hint of warming alcohol. A pretty nice imperial, but could be more drinkable without sacrificing flavor.

2005 RBSG Montreal Saturday. Opaque dark brown colour with a thick, lasting creamy (nitro) tan head. Coffee, chocolate, lightly roasty aroma. Big coffee, light chocolate, plus some fruitiness that comes across as strawberry and orange peel for me. Full boided, creamy and smooth.

egajdzis (5401) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2005
RBSG 2005... Poured an opaque black color with a creamy tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet chocolate, light vanilla, and roasted malts. Taste of roast and chocolate, smoke, and dried fruits. Creamy mouthfeel.
