UPDATED: NOV 28, 2007 Bottle(?)... RBSG2006... This beer rocks!... Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, well-tanned head. Nose is of chocolate, caramel and blackstrap molasses. Chocolaty, caramely flavor with burnt, bitter notes. Ultra full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Finishes chocolaty, burnt and lightly bitter. World class beer!

On tap, and from a growler into an English Pint. Pours a completely thick and dark blackish tan with very little head, but what is there is tannish as well. Aroma is heavy towards the roasted malt and coffee notes while being carmalized as well. It’s actually somewhat medium bodied, but the flavor is very heavy in coffee, chocolate, roastiness, and molasses. I pick up a hint of sweetness (cherries I think) towards the finish before the alcohol kicks in surrounded by coffee. I fall in love with everything from Walking Man that touches my tongue. I will definitely drink this one anytime I have the chance to!

Dark, dark, brown. Anise and a bit of coffee in the aroma. A touch of ash. The flavor is atually a little thin.

Opaque black with a small tan head. This might shock everyone but it smelled like choclate, coffee, caramel, et al... The flavor was, shockingly, much the same. Some hot alcohol creeps in maiking things, ummm, more lively. Full bodied with an alcohol burn. Yet another Imperial Stout.

Beer #22 RBSG 06. Darkest brown black appearance, decent head. Slight aroma of milk chocolate, raisins, and alcohol. Flavor was a dead on match, although the chocolate perhaps leaned a bit more towards the dark chocolate side. Some cherry as well. Bit of alcohol heat. Really nice.

On tap at Duck Island. Black with small head. WONDERFUL aroma. Lots of roasted malt...chocolate...small notes of alcohol. This is a serious stout....a very impressive effort. Lots of chocolate, dark fruit, and a little coffee. But, the alcohol was overpowering in the taste...great stout, but they need to hide the strength more.

[Tap – Fathers Day Brewery Tour 06] This is a huge over the top Imperial Stout. The dark black color with the strong coffee, toffee and malt aromas where excellent. Loved this beer. Like to have more like it and hope to get it often. The alcohol makes you rethink driving home. Great Imperial Stout!!!

Been waiting a long time to try this one. No light penetration whatsoever, this is black as stouts come. Small dark brown head. Nose is as complex as I expect the flavor to be. Lots of dried dark fruits, some roasted coffee and vanilla as in oakiness. Thick and sweet mouthfeel, with big notes of espresso, and heavy dark chocolate and cocoa. Sits nicely on the palate without being overwhelming for the amount of alcohol is perfectly masked for being 12.7%
