GABF 2006. The beer has a CRAZY mousse looking head that could be eaten with a spoon. Black body. The aroma is sweet chocolate silk pie and graham crackers. Mocha. The flavor is rich chocolate silk pie. Creamy. Sorta one-dimensional. Rich and extremely full mouthfeel. Too one-dimensional, but still was quite good.

Out of a growler at the ’06 RBSG. Very dark beer with a foamy brown head. Sweet dark malt nose. Very rich, smooth beer with burnt caramel, coffee, chocolate and dried fruit sweetness. Excellent sipping beer.

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 1, 2006
RBSG DC 2006: Deep brown-black with a medium sized, tan colored head. The aroma is pure coffee, mocha, and grapes. Taste is dry cocoa, strong vanilla/oak tannins, alcohol, but the richly bitter roasted malts really come through, figs, prunes, and finishes somewhat sweet.

RBSG 06. Black body with tan head, fading. My girlfriend says "looks delicious". The aroma is molasses, chocolate, burnt and toffee. The flavor is toffee, burnt, roast, chocolate and plums. Medium/full body with bitter dry end.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 16, 2006
Sampled at RBSG 2006- Grand Tasting. From the growler. Pours coal black with a dark beige head. Chalky, in fact, almost dessicating. It is sweet and roasted like drinking burned rice krispies. Delicious and filling.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2006
RBSG 2006 Grand Tasting. Jet black with ruby edges and a beige head. Chocolate, floral/grassy hop character in the nose. Flavor has notes of dark roasted malt, alcohol, chocolate, caramel, plum, raisin and a welcome ton of hoppage. Full, round and creamy with moderate carbonation. Excellent. Why haven’t I moved to the Pacific Northwest yet?

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2006
Sampled at the RBSG ’06. Black with a tan head. Complex sweet aroma with loads of roasted malts balancing out the caramel. Solid hop bitterness in the flavor that finishes with a dry palate. Alcohol that is well hidden.

TheBeerGod (5329) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 23, 2006
Growler at RBSG 2006. Black with a light almost a maple-syrup-on-lightly-burnt-pancakes aroma. Some chocolaty and roasted malt compliment to that as well. Taste is malty, roasted, dark fruits, molasses and chocolate. Body is rich and full with a big carbonation feel to it. Finishes with more roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, and a touch of alcohol. Nice one!

Growler at RBSG ’06. Black color with a small tan head. Nice dark roasted malt aroma with lots of chocolate and a bit of coffee. Flavor was roasted malts, chocolate and molasses with a warming alcohol finish.

kramer (5090) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2006
From growler, acquired in a trade by me with Dubbercody, shared at 2006 RBSG Grand Tasting. Dark black pour with some light coming thru on the edges under a nice one finger dark brown foamy head that vanished to a thin ring. Aroma is hugely roasty with thick maple syrup and a light tinge of alcohol. The flavor is pretty intensly roasty and chocolaty with lighter alcohol. A hint of burnt malt and light soy on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with great moderate carbonation. Slightly oily and sticky on the finish. Overall, I thought that this was very very good. The alcohol was certainly well hidden as well. One of my favorites for the evening.
