A cola brown in color with ruby highlights and a massive beige head that lingers. The aroma is roasty toasty oats sort of like a Cocoa Puffs (a type chocolate breakfast cereal).
Full bodied, a bit slick and thick in the mouth but it’s got a great chewy malt character. The taste is dark bitter chocolate, roasted oats and a dab of green minty herbal hops. Super smooth and now I want to seek out the RIS! thornecb (6193) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Pours mahogany tinged black into a tulip. Mocha head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Chocolate and vanilla aromas. Soft and dry with milk chocolate and espresso upfront turning to chalky smoked chocolate covered pit fruit in the medium length finish JFGrind (2080) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2017
Strong chocolate roasted malt flavors, Baby Bob is a good quality American Stout. Tried the Stout on draft.

Pours brown, not very foamy. Nose is fill of chocolate and cocoa. Powdery. Taste has more of the same, lots of cocoa and milk chocolate, also lots of hops there. Nice dry milk stout, quite unique for what it is. Drinks well though.

Growler from Whole Foods. Very dark brown with beige head, full bodied. Roasted grain aroma, bitter chocolate and coffee notes in the taste. Roasted malt finish. No sweet stout here.

Can from Capone’s. Pours black with with light brown foam that fades quickly. Aroma is mild roasted black malt, bakers chocolate, sweet molasses & coffee beans. flavor is similar with a cold brewed coffee flavor and a nice last roasted finish that lingers.

Can from Smith’s. Pours hazy dark brownish with tan head, looking ruby thru direct light. Nose is roasty dark malt, hazelnut, molasses, chocolate. Tastes dark malty, earthy, nutty, with notes of chocolate, ovaltine, and ample hops. Very complex, but I dare say a bit narcissistic in the name. Bob Barrar rules, but what’s next, Bob’s Bitch Blonde Ale? italianjohn (3335) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2017
Black pour with a beige head and light sticky lacing .... aroma of cocoa, roasted malts, chocolate and caramel malts .... taste is of bitter dry cocoa, semisweet chocolate, roasted malts, light coffee flavors and just the right sugary flavor to balance the bitter cocoa .... finish is of dry bitter cocoa, sweet caramel malts and roasted malts .... solid little stout ... mouthfeel is slick and oily and the body is closer to medium katrinaez (2411) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Pours dark black with minimal head. Light aroma of malts, and some toasted marshmallow. Taste of bitter malts with burnt chocolate. A nice bitter porter. Tap. stevoj (5957) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Draft at brewery. Normal stout appearance, small head, decent lacing. Aroma and taste lean more on chocolate than roast grains. Dry to the bone. Mixed review. I like some of it, but not all of it.
