2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to foofaa for sharing his sample with me and to whoever brought this one to Capone’s.
A - Pours dead flat dark brown with no head and no lace. No surprise here.
S - This is a beer? Could have fooled me. Smells kinda like a fine brandy to me. Hints of caramel, dark fruit, and some cherries but once the booze kicks in it is all over.
T - Starts off with a mix of caramel sweetness, cherries, and dark fruits quickly being enveloped by the insanely hot alcohol burn. Once the booze kicks in you really lose most of the flavors. This is probably the hottest beer I have ever had.
M - Heavy body and flavor with no carbonation. This one feels like I drank some gas and lit my mouth on fire.
O - I am sure this was a pretty good beer at some point in its life but at this level it is just a novelty. If I wanted my beer to taste like a spirit I would just order a spirit and be done with it.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a murky light brown with almost no head. Minimal lacing. Thick hoppy aroma, with pine and citrus. Overweening spicy taste, maybe a little corn and grapefruit. Rather light and fizzy mouthfeel and saccharine finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A dark golden one, almost amber, flat and with an oily pour. Rather alcoholic nose with some caramel, not much else escaping the glass. The flavor is alcoholic, with caramel and some fruity notes. Intense. Full-bodied and warming. I’ve had more pleasant strong eisbiers than this one, this one sort of reminds me of a cheap, boozy cognac. 120218

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
RBESG 2010, Grand Tasting, ceramic bottle, courtesy of Yespr
Amber color. Aroma of caramel and biscuits, then alcohol. Dry biscuity flavor; the alcohol perception is higher than expected, it feels in the 50’s; the final has some dry roasted nuts. Nothing I would be so interest in looking for, but an interesting experiment, and actually quite well brewed technically.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. An amber beer with no head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, caramel, and wood - too simple for my liking. The flavor is extremely powerful with notes of caramel and malt as well as lighter notes of smoke and then the alcohol that burns in the throat. The body is extremely strong. Huge thanks to yespr for sharing.
