3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ruby red color, small off-white head. Very, very toffeish aroma. Toffee, sour milk, fudge in the flavor. Tiny hops in the aftertaste. Probably quite close to Scotch ale, but not something I would like to drink in large quantities.

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.

Sheep farm aroma. Rich red, small head. Massively milky sweet maltiness, some grains, toffee ice cream (spotted by Alex, thanks, and so obvious in retrospect). Adequate, but not grabbing me.

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!
