hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle... RBSG 2014This beer rocks!… Dark brown pour with a small, creamy, cappachino head. The aroma is absolutely bonkers, offering heaps of big-time, earthy, deep-roast, espresso-grind coffee. Full-bodied, velvety and smooth with soft carbonation. The flavor is a marriage of burnt coffee and charred grains, accompanied by a smidge of caramel in here among all the burnt, carbonic notes. There’s charcoal and an 85%-cacao dark-chocolate element in the finish. I didn’t pull any bourbon barrel out of this, but I’m guessing there would be more rough edges if not for the time spent within that whiskey barrel. World class coffee imperial stout!

tectactoe (1855) - Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle: Huge thanks to Tim & Tony. Oil. Black as night, viscous as hell, topped with a mocha & ever-so-slightly cherry tinted foamy made of very fine microbubbles. Aroma is made of such a fresh, deep, roasted coffee blend... Like sticking your nose in a French press with some high-end Rwandan coffee beans being steeped. Notes of vanilla add a nice creamy element with a smooth induction of warm bourbon on the back-end. Lovely nose. Taste is no different; such a rich coffee flavor, on par with the quality of roasted coffee you get from beers like BCS Coffee, deeply roasted & oily fresh. Underbody of roasted malt, faint smoky char, spicy wood, leading into a finish of mixed creaminess & tantalizing bourbon. Warm, but not overdoing it. Just a fabulous barrel aged coffee stout, up in the ranks for sure.

phaleslu (6499) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Pour from a 750 ml bottle at the brewery on the RBSG bus tour. Looks like the other Barrel Aged Sump - pours a deep, basically opaque midnight brown with a small brown head. Attractive. Really nice coffee and roasted malts in this, with charred oak, tobacco, dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted brown sugar, caramel, and warmth from the whiskey. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, roasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Rich and decadent. Just as good as the other Barrel Aged Sump. These are fantastic barrel treatments. Awesome stuff.
