Bottle @ Armin’s house, courtesy of bushmat1. Is Matt the coolest dude on Earth? No, Sean Connery is BUT Matt is a close second. For coolest female, I gotta go with Elizabeth Shue. Anyways, Baller pours a black appearance with a dark brown head. Very rich, a touch fruity, thick caramel, toasty toffee, dessert nutty aroma with a touch of booze. Tingly, rich dark chocolate, caramel, mild coffee, big toffee, rich malty flavor with a sweet chocolate/caramel, somewhat bitter finish. Fuck yeah! Thanks again Matt!

RBAG 2012. Thank you Savvy - your generous offering at this gathering will not be soon forgotten. Pour is jet black with a sizeable tan head. Strong notes of ripe, dark fruits, fresh espresso, grassy hops and dark chocolate are melded extremely well in the nose. Palate starts off fairly well carbonated and extends to a silky finish...absolutely no cloying sweetness to note, the blend was done extremely well IMO. Notes of espresso, raisins, blackberry, dark chocolate with a wonderful grassy hop mid-palate and finish. Everything blends perfectly

RBAG - With HUGE thanks to phaleslu. Pors clear cola black, thin pale tna head; spotty lacing. Nose is light coffee, lots of ashy graphite, some some toast, light tobacco. Flavours of tar, graphite, smoke, chewing tobacco. Just wonderfully dry, lots of coffee in the finish. Lovely stuff.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Bomber. There is a lot going on in this one. Some chocolate, smoke, a bit of coffee. I noticed a bit of minty taste to it, havent seen that mentioned yet. This was a very good stout. Stuff is now 2 months old, I’m curious to see what this does with a little more time. ------- again. now a year old. Has the nose of DL, and finishes like bgb. No mint this time. Maybe the other bottle had a mentos mysteriuosly dropped in. I’ll leave it at 4.1.

RBAG 2012. Black with a thin medium brown head. Exceptional aroma: sweet, cool fruit forward aroma, solid roast that is behind different things every time, soft creamy chocolate, sweet woodiness, gum balls, more chocolate, interesting back ground spice, love it. Whoa, What the hell is this taste? In my face, burnt, chocolate, ashes, citursy, hard bitterness, sweetness, hard roast, licorice, faint vanilla and coffee, aaaaaa sooo good and easy to drink. great finish, fuck this list of beers we have is fucking retarded.

Bomber. Poured deep brown with a creamy, sticky dark tan head. The aroma picked up sweet, milky chocolates, dulce de leche, and a bit of smoked molasses.. the big sweetness almost completely masked the boozage.. not small by any means, but surprisingly restrained. The flavor found sweeter chocolates, molasses, and a bunch of roasty black patent maltage at the core.. very sweet on the back-end, with more dulce de leche and some smoked chocolates on the finish.. again the sweetness almost totally masked the alcohol (though there was a little kick in the end). Heavy-bodied and quite creamy on the palate.. rolling carbonation.. lots of familiar flavors from the "base" beers, and they managed to work well together.

beernbourbon (1265) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle shared by jckp64, thanks buddy! Pour is deep viscous black with a thin tan head the dissipated to a ring of tan foam. Aroma is roasted malt and coffee. Beer Geek Breakfast coming through. But behind that is a soft sweet toffee component that is really calming and smooth. Also notes of licorice and dark fruits. Flavor is hard to pin down but notes of roasted malt, faint coffee, Dark Lord-like sweet/ deep fruits, and a resinous hop note. Certainly a little disjointed. Many components of the base beers are notable but not quite a cohesive unit. Still great stuff.

Bottle. Colour... essentially black with no head at all (at least with my pour, as it was a shared bottle). Nose... light bodied coffee and black strap molasses. Palate... quite ashen, (which I usually like, but other flavour aspects of the beer were a bit blah!) with more molasses, some dark fruits, dark chocolate and coffee, but all in all rather unremarkable given the blend of truly amazing beers (all of which I REALLY like on their own!) that went into this mix.

Pours almost black with a thin layer of tan head. Smells very, very, ashy. Must be the Beer Geek Brunch. There’s some metal and a bit of dark fruit character to it. Very roasty, too. The flavor isn’t much better. Very ashy and roasty. There is some dark fruit and maybe a little bit of licorice and molasses. A hint of vanilla to go along with the char and ash. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation.
