[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!!!

GABF 2010. Finally got a chance to try this beer after wanting it for about 8 years. Pours a nice big oily pitch black with some thin head- lasting. Aroma is oily, licorice, light smoke, big roast, big black dark chocolate, bittersweet, medium fruitiness- plum, raisin, dates. Flavor is coffee, roast, chocolate, fruits, almost get a woody oaky bourbon character, although not sure if this is BA? Inky plum, viscous body, vanilla, chocolate, some sweet molasses with a bitter finish and alcohol heat. GOod!

Roasted malts, soy and chocolate in the thick and sugary aroma. Opaque black body is topped with a low, dense, fine bubbled, tan head that lasts well and coats the glass with lacing. Strong hoppy and fruity flavour. Excellent malts are very dry and roasty. Medium full but dry body with strong carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005.

GABF 2006: Deep black color with a nice tan head. Big roasted aroma with notes of black licorice. The flavor was sweet and roasty with some nice chocolate notes. Medium to full bodied with warmth in the chest. Alcohol is hidden well as far as the taste goes.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2010 Tap @ Walking Man... Poured black with a brown head. Strong, roasted malt and chalky characters on the nose. Really thick palate that had a nice sting to it. Chocolate syrup flavors with thick, robust, roasted malt, rice-like grains and coffee liquor towards the finish. Fairly light feel for 12.7%.

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.

Mason jar (!) from SamuraiArtist - thanks, Ezra! Straight from Belmont Station, this one is a lovely, viscous, and complex RIS that holds up nicely with some of the better versions of the style. Oily black, with a satisfying mix of malt sweetness, mild bourbon and chocolate notes, and a modest roast through the middle. It’s got a hefty body, as is appropriate, but is just slightly lacking in carbonation - not a big problem with this style, but I wonder if the brew has suffered a bit in its journey to me. Would love to try it fresh, but as is it’s still an awesome RIS.

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.
