Dark copper brown color, small off-white head. Nutty, toasted chestnut aroma. Grassy, woody hoppy, caramelly flavor. Suprsingly good one from Palestine (this bottle was original, not one from Germany).

Bottle @ the RBESG08 Grand Tasting.
Pours deep brown with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, light chocolate and rather earthy. Okay mouthfeel. Fine flavour, good chocolate, lightly roasted - not dissimilar in style to the Bøgedal beers. Nice.

Grand Tasting, RBESG08.
Hazy brown colour with tan head. roma from dark malts with notes of plum. Good chewy, lively mouthfeel with dark fruits, chocolate and caramel. Low on hops as it should be, but bit short in the finish. A nice surprise!

Bottled. Deep amber colour with mediumsized off-shite head. Aroma is big malts, some hops as well as some roasted notes. Flavour is quite much the same along with some grass. Also the roast is quite mild in the flavour.
