Had on tap at their place. Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Flavor is curious. More bitter than a scotch ale and also has some umami flavor going on. Slightly salty. Interesting but tastes a bit off.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft… RBSG 2014… This beer rocks!… Pours mostly clear and ruby with a small, creamy, off-white head that sticks around a good while. The bouquet is a wonderfully malty assortment of toffee, caramel and oak with a suggestion of smoked malt and a rumor of butterscotch. Medium to full-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is loaded with toffee and caramel sweetness, but countered by a equal ration of woody and tannic bitterness. Malty and delicious, but balanced, so anyone can drink it. Finishes pleasantly bitter and tongue-numbing. Fun, world class stuff!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Square One. Rich amber pour with a white head. Sweet caramel malt, some berry, raisin, and candied apple. A lot of sugary sweetness. Not much hop character. Flavor is just all sweet caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. A bit of toast, honey, and a slight fruity tang. Really one note.
