3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler... RBSG 2014... Pours clear and black with shimmers of ruby when held up to light. The aroma is all about robust mocha – Cuban-roast espresso, dark chocolate and fudge. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. The flavor offers rich chocolate crème sweetness and burnt espresso bitterness. Finishes roasty and sweet, and leaves my breath smelling like I just polished off a Bustelo Supreme cafe con leche. Growler courtesy of BBB63!

Tasted at RBSG grand tasting. 32oz growler. Black color. Thin light brown head.
Decent bits of lace. Lactose, milk chocolate, light spice, moderate roast. Moderate sweet, light bitter. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft crisp lighter carbonation. Solid sweet dark beer. Don’t generally like them this sweet, though. I’m not a fan of milk sugar.
