4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

4/12/10 by way of dakine.
thick pour. brownish black with a small tannish head.
alcohol is up front and burns the snout quite a bit... past that are notes of chocolate, roast, vanilla, molasses, prunes, wood and lots of florals from the booze.
the flavor is the same... oddly dull though the body is full and slick. 6/4/6/4/14/3.4

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.

Growler from Indiana_Red: Pours a dark brown, near black with a large tanned head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, and hints of the high ABV. Tastes off dark fruits, toasted malt, coffee, and light bittersweet cocoa. Nice lingering and warming finish.

This beer is so hard to track down, finally found it on tap at Belmont Station today. Pours black with a small brown head. Very rich roasted chocolate body. Notes of rich chocolate meld with a fruity brandy and faint burnt flavors. Very heavy feeling beer that packs a punch.
