Huge thanks to jale for this bottle. Served in a FFF Anniversary pint glass. Pours nearly black with a nice tan head. Good retention and lacing. The nose is fairly sweet with plenty of dark fruits. Some chocolate and roast behind. Not as complex or integrated as I would expect. Flavor is pretty similar. Quite sweet. Medium body and chewy. Some booze. Not terribly impressed -- from breweries of this caliber, I expected a lot more.

RBAG 2012 - Beer is black….shocking I Know!! Aroma is relatively mild for the style but still has a high degree of yum yum. Deep milk chocolate, some socks, sweetness from fruit, huge roast malt. Very surprised coffee from the Beer Geek Breakfast isn’t showing up. Taste is awesome, smooth chocolate, hints of ash and smoke. Beer has a medium bitter finish. Mild vanilla showing up now…..coffee turning up now the longer I drink. Great beer THANKS SAVVY!!!

Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, caramel and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy sweet roasted malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a very good beer but not better than some of the parts.

Pours dark black chestnut with a tan head. The aroma is sweet chocolatey roasted malts and vanilla notes. The flavor is sweet roasted malts with a bit of a creamy body and some light sweet booze to end smoothly.

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: MAY 7, 2014 1/22/12 - 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.

11/11/12 - Tried 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.

5/6/14 - bottle just puchased at the pub a few weeks ago and stored in my fridge since. Holy cow, super smooth dark roast. The dark lord/darkness sweetness has faded but there is a great thick strong roasty amazing stout under there. Blown away by what happened to this stuff after a year. One of the best non BA stouts ive had. 4.2

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.
