3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is just about black with a creamy, khaki colored head that exhibits excellent retention.
S: Like most beers of the style, heavy on the roast and coffee aromas. A little bit of licorice and dark chocolate giving the beer some sweetness. Earthy hops are there in the background.
T: Intense coffee flavor or both the beverage itself and of coffee grounds. Cocoa and dark chocolate, along with earthy hops, provide a fairly substantial bitterness. A touch of molasses and toffee for sweetness.
M: Medium in body with a smooth, creamy carbonation.
O: Goes down pretty easily. It’s nice to have some of these lower ABV beers. Especially a good one like this.

Nitro... RBSG ‘08... Pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Forever retention... not fair, nitro stuff always looks great! Sweet, roasted aroma. Light bodied and ultra-creamy with pillow-soft carbonation. The well-balanced, but very reserved flavor, leans slightly on the sweet side of balance. The usual suspects in a dry stout... coffee and chocolate... SURPRISE! Watery, mildly sweet finish.
