UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 RBSG 2006, Grand Tasting. Pours dark black with a beige head. Nose of vibrant green hops and chocolate. Flavor has notes of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, earth and a pleasant burnt bitter back end taste. Medium bodied with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Quite good. RERATE- from a bottle I’ve had for over a year. Awesome, smooth bold dark chocolate with subtle coffee flavor. Keep wanting more of this. A mix between Stout and Imperial Stout - very drinkable.

Sampled during RBSG 2006. I got to rate this side by side with the Great Lakes Bourbon Barrel Stout and this was my favorite. Thanks to Ungstrup for bringing another winner! Pours black with a light tan head that hangs forever. Rich aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Well balanced flavor that combines the aromas with a nice dry finish from the roast malts.

Bottle by trade courtesy of Humleimporten... many thanks, Jacob. Poured tar black with a large, mostly diminishing brown creamy head. Big aromas everywhere. Dominating are heavy dark roast coffee, various chocolates, warming to subtle dark fruits and some sweet and burning sugar smells. Tastes of bottom-of-the-pot coffee, burnt driftwood, and dry cocoa. A long salty, tangy, bitter finish like you’ve finished too many cups of coffee at an all night diner while your car’s in the shop waiting for a new fuel pump ’cause they don’t stock imports in Kansas. Big, full, strong body with thick creaminess and milky smoothness. Solid carbonation. Alcohol is lightly detecable in the finish. Knowing I’ll probably never get a chance to have this beer again, I try to take things slow, but in spite of its robust nature, this beer is too dangerously easy to drink quickly. I’m entirely satisfied with this beer. Thanks again, Jacob.

(RBSG06, 50cl bottle) Big brown head atop an opaque black body. Aroma is moderately sweet, coffee, chocolate, roast. Taste is medium sweet, coffee, some burnt. Creamy medium body. I guess not being a coffee drinker shows up in my ratings of these "breakfast" stouts, as I also gave below average ratings for Founders (though not as far below as I do here).

3fourths (7855) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Dark as can be, head is rich copper brown, even pumpkin colored it seems. High carbonation, rich toffee, amaretto and coffee nose, sweet, rich, excellent all around. Flavor is sweet, more pale and mundane than the nose, but still ric, full of caramel, butter-toffee, creamy coffee and chocolate flavors. Texture is good, slick when the carbonation is leveled out a little bit. Thanks to Jens for bringing this one to the summer gathering.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2007 Bottle at RBSG ’06. Black in color with a rich tan head. Aroma was mild coffee, dark roasted malts and milk chocolate. Flavor was more intense than the aroma. The coffee really came on, along with sweet roasted malts and finishing with a rich chocolate finish. I had this a few weeks ago at a Heavyweight open house and wasn’t overly impressed. I can only guess that it lost something in the shipping over to the states because this one from Ungstrup was beautiful.

RBSG06: What the hell. Another awesome little stout. Thick, black, rich and tastly. Maybe a touch too sweet, but otherwise amazing
