3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle courtesy of Jacob. Thanks man. Pours a jet black color with a small tan head that slowly recedes to a fine film. The aroma is soft with blackened barley, faint molasses, chocolates and some dust. The flavor is complex and spicy with peppers, bitter filberts, dark chocolates and figs. The palate was smooth and full with lively carbonation. Finishes long and bitter-sweet. Overall: As a fan of hoppy beers I really liked this one, it has a nice well developed bitterness. This would sell well here if available.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
21/07 RBESG Grand Tasting, 0.5 l bottle. It poured pitch black body with small brownish head. Coffee, slightly caramel aroma with catchy herbal notes. Roasted malt dominates its flavor as well, nicely rounded with milky smoothness and decent, but very subtle hop bitterness. Medium bodied, quite carbonated, with sweet and slightly sour finish. Pleasant enough, alcohol was hidden very well.
