RBSG at 10 Barrel. Dark brown color with a thick tan head. Aroma is lots of roast, some hints of burnt grains, and chocolate malt. I enjoyed the overall taste here? the level of roast is just right for me. Lots of roast, but layered with other flavors. Chocolate and espresso, a bit of underlying rye spiciness.
