4 4 x 7 15 3.75 3 oz chilled pour from tap into cylindrical taster as part of Russian River’s “everything on tap” sampled (16 beers this time around) at the brewery itself. I realize that drinking 16 different 3 oz pours is not ideal for proper rating, but when will I ever have an opportunity like this again? Starts with plum, ends with dirt (in the best possible way). Very earthy.

Draught at the Russian River Brewing Co, Santa Rosa, CA.
Clear dark coppery brown colour with a small off-white head. Dark fruits... big time... and some yeast and sweet maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is dark fruits... and some mild yeast, sugary sweetness and sweet malt.

Reminds me of a milk stout. Some chocolate flavors and lasting too. Very well done.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of lightly roasted malt, Belgian yeast, dark fruit. Flavor similar, like a hybrid beer of.sorts, reminded me of hell hath mo fury.

SG111 (669) - New York, USA - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours black color, small had, little lacing. Aroma is cherries, fruit, and malt. Flavor is malty, cherries, little bit of fig, and some notable Belgian qualities. Not much in the way of hops (which is notable b/c RR does hops really well). Not bad. Not exceptional (like any hoppy beers RR does).

Roasty and full flavoured for the style. Hops not particularly noticeable but then again this is styled as a ’Belgian Black’. Good depth of chocolate runs right through the palate.
