madmitch76 (16111) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2010
6th June 2010. RBESG 10 Grand Tasting at the Brasserie 4:20 Warehouse. Big thanks to Alex for allowing us to take this bottle from his stock! Black beer, light brown head. Smooth dry palate. Sweet dark malt with a little spice. The bourbon is quite subtle but there is a lot of unsweet dark chocolate. Finishes dry and roasty.

RBESG 2010, Grand Tasting, bottle
Black color; creamy head. Compared to the Rum Barrel, this one has much more coffee, it’s sweeter. Good but not impressive.
