COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and mysterious this 150th Batch of Pisgah beer is a tribute to our homebrew roots. Combining the rich chocolate flavor of a Baltic Porter with the subtleness of a special Belgian yeast strain, the Cosmos is born....

Clear dark brown body under a thin off-white head. Candy malt aroma with no hops. Sweet, but it quickly becomes boring for lack of any complexity.

on tap @Barleys-pours a disappearing light tan head and black color with red tint. Aroma is fermented dark fruit. Taste is fermented dark fruit, secondary hops bite, yeast. Nice, occasional.

Batch 150. Fairly dark chestnut pour with ruby highlights. A thin off-white head is nearly fully receding. Just a touch of lace, nothing that effects the score one way or another. Looks somewhat thin. Belgian yeast in the aroma is apparent though subtle, hidden under a really nice, complex array of caramel malt. Notes of chocolate, cherries, overripe tree fruit, vinous touches, coffee cooler and licorice. The flavor is moderately sweet, lots of caramel and hints of berry. Lightly tart esters, definitely Belgian. Hints of banana and wheat. High sweetness towards the finish, mostly caramel in character. Finishes dry, bitter and jumbled. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy bodied. Carbonation is light throughout and prickly. Decent, strange.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Bottle... RBSG 07... Pours pitch black with a small, fizzy, khaki head and decent retention. Chocolaty, vinous nose provides a touch of warm ethanol. The flavor is an odd, but pleasing marriage of tawny port, dark fruit and mocha java. Moderate sweetness is complimented nicely by moderate hop bitterness and light acidity. Medium-bodied and almost creamy with moderate carbonation. Freshly ground, dark roast coffee finish. Kudos to kp for sharing!

(Bottle) Pours a mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma of licorice, caramel, nuts, chocolate, and dark fruits. Flavor of caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, and breadiness.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2007
RSSG 2007 Overnight Tasting - Dark brown, creamy white head. Nose was full on dark fruity cherry notes, with a soft undercurrent of brown sugar, milk chocolate, and coffee. Flavor was quite vinous with light coffee and chocolate tones, and just a faint hint of hops late. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry, coffee hop finish. Thanks for shraing KP. Good stuff!

decaturstevo (4851) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Thanks KP A brown pour with a light tan head. An aroma of roated malt and a light light hint of smoke. A sweet malt flavor pushed by the chocoffeeness in this beer. A hint of fruitiness as well. A good finishing bitter too. A decent palate but just a tad thin. Overall a good beer.

Another one of those beer mashups i’ve come across recently. This one mixes a belgian strong with a porter and I see both in there. Aromas of the strong and flavors of the porter. Nice yeast and bread aromas. Nice roasted chocolate malt flavors. Some sweetness and creaminess. Pours a dark brown with a slight purple hue. Very interesting one here guys.

Bomber, purchased at Bruisin’ Ales. Pours a very dark, brilliant reddish mahogany with tan head. The Belgian-ness of the aroma strikes me immediately. It smells of anise, licorice, brown sugar, bark, fruit salad, raisin, clove, slight chocolate. The flavor is chocolate, banana, licorice, and raisin at first. A sort of woody twang kicks in the middle, with a hint of roastiness and very slight fruitiness. The finish picks up a pretty well-defined peanut shell taste, which lingers with chocolate and alcohol into the aftertaste. As it warms it gets some interesting wine and cigar notes. Very interesting brew. I think I’ve decided I like it.

22 oz bottle, via jimbowood. Pours a dark brown body with some mahogany showing on the edges. The head was fairly small, large bubbled, and receded without leaving any lacing. The nose shows tons of licorice, caramel, roast, and alot of yeast character for a Baltic Porter. Some light alcohol also. Flavor is a blend of chocolate and caramel, with quite an odd yeast derived fruitiness. A little grape soda, alcohol, caramel, and licorice late in the finish. Mouthfeel is too over-carbonated and a little annoyingly fizzy. Finishes with a slightly sweet cloying oily feel that I like though. This was OK, but the mouthfeel really did some bad things to this. Letting it breathe didn’t seem to really help at all either. Kind of outside the bounds of a Baltic Porter given the yeast choice, as it really lended alot of yeast derived characteristics to what ought to be a much cleaner and smoother style.
