RSSG 2007 Overnight Tasting - Dense brown, creamy tan head. Nose was loaded with whiskey, oak, graham cracker, and vanilla molasses. Strong oak flavor dominates with underlying vanilla and bourbon tones. Medium bodied and oily, soft carbonation, boozy warm finish. Good, but the un-barrel aged version from long ago kicks this one to the curb. Thanks for sharing Walt...

Sampled at the RBSG 07 Grand Tasting. In my notes as Barrel Aged Viscosity. No head on this dark brown almost black pour. Chocolate and bourbon on the nose. Sweet body with similar flavors and thick mouthfeel.

Bottle... RBSG 07... Murky, pitch black ale with no head. Notes of cocoa, espresso, bourbon, tobacco and charcoal in the aroma. The flavor provides good balance. Chocolate malt sweetness with alcohol and hop bitterness. Light sourmash. Full-bodied and lightly oily with spotty carbonation. Burnt, bourbon-hot finish. Thanks to Walt for sharing his bottle!

A dark brown pour with almost no head. I really liked the aroma combination of oaked alcohol, a hint of vanilla, and rich malt. The abv is here in the flavor but not overpowering. It has a nice chocolate maltiness that adds very good balance to it. The palate is solid across not over carbonated and not thin but just off somehow. A very good beer that seems to be a tad hot for most but me I like it very much.

Black body with small tan head, lasting cover. The aroma is bourbon, vinous, chocolate and molasses. The flavor is bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate and prunes. Full body is sticky with soft carbonation and a warm finish.

Bottled. Poured a deep, chocolatey brown with just a couple loose bubbles for head. Aroma picked up lots and lots of sweet bourbon.. deep vinous and oaky notes too.. enjoyed it, but the booze factor was a bit too overt. Flavor found sweet bourbon and chocolate upfront (a bit too focused on the booze).. mild chocolate over the middle, then more vanilla, oak, and bourbon from the barrel treatment through the long finish. Medium-bodied but slick on the palate.. bourbony finish with vanilla.. STRONG!

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Thanks Matt. The beer pours to a really dark brown body with no head. The aroma is hugely oaken vanilla with sherry and port wine galore. Awesomely complex. The flavor is vanilla, oak, chocolate, sherry, bourbon, honey, and coffee. The palate is rich, alcoholic, full bodied.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JUN 21, 2007
No head, pitch black. The nose is more bourbon than beer. Body is complex, you get chocolate and roast malts with bourbon really topping it off. Sweet chocolate finish, really digging this brew, Toms about to rate malt liquor.
