Growler… RBSG 2014… Hazy mahogany pour with flashes of copper and a small, creamy, off-white head. The bouquet is an assortment of figs, dates and other dark, dried, sugary fruits. Full-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor presents a blend of chocolate, caramel and toasted tree nuts, followed by a modest measure of lingering bitterness.

This is clear brown with a small white head. This reminds me of a schwartzbier. It is toasty malt in the nose and lots of roasted chocolate comes out once it’s tasted. It is dry but mild bitterness implies sweetness. This is really tasty and subtle. Well done.
