Draft… RBSG ‘08… This beer rocks!… Pitch black ale with a very small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Chocolaty, vinous aroma with notes of vanilla and controlled bourbon. Full-bodied and ultra silky with restrained carbonation. The finish is charred and chocolaty with discreet, elegant bourbon. About as good as it gets!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged Tasting, from a 2008 vintage keg. Dark brown but still clear color. Thin light brown / tan head. Even spread of dotty lace. Great bourbon, roasty vanilla nose. Very smooth texture, pretty creamy. Light carbonation, dry texture. Great bourbon aftertaste, hits you in waves that you can cherish and savor. Good sweet, light bitter taste. Light alcohol does wonders to propel the fantastic aroma out. Very good.

Bottle shared at the DTE tasting thanks to trade with Alen. Pours near black with a small brown head. Aroma of bourbon upfront, big vanilla, fudge, roast, milk chocolate, and coffee. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter. Mouthfeel could be a little thicker which let’s it down slightly, but still excellent. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Alewife Baltimore for Stone Total Tap Takeover. Poured near ink black with ruby highlights. Tan bubbles cling onto the sides of the glass but no head forms. Aroma is beautiful buttery bourbon, coconut, vanilla, oak, rich smokiness. Taste is a giant smack in the face of unsweetened, bitter chocolate, smoked malt, hot bourbon moving very quickly to silky chocolate, coconut, vanilla ice cream. Palate goes from soft to chalky and bitter cacao powder. About six seconds after tasting this I knew exactly why it is in the ratebeer Top 20. Everything is there: the aroma, the body, the palate. It is like Bourbon Country Stout with a little less richness and less of a superlative palate.
