brokensail (16222) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pours a viscous black with a finger of brown head. Rich coffee aroma with plenty of milk and dark chocolate. Notes of vanilla and cream with some caramel sweetness, a bit of bourbon, roast, and oak. The flavor is quite decadent with tons of chocolate and vanilla flavors and even more coffee. A nice touch of cream and sugar with some oak, roasted malt, and molasses as well. Really excellent.

Dogbrick (12247) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Sample at the brewery taproom. Pours black with a medium foamy beige head that diminishes gradually to an outer ring. Patchy lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of roasted coffee, malt, dark chocolate and vanilla. Full-bodied with a roasty coffee and malt character, with bittersweet chocolate and vanilla notes. The finish is strong coffee and malt. Really good all around.

daknole (10920) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
First beer on the RBSG bus. Multiple pours. Damn what a beer. Nearly black with a nice brown head. Aroma hits with loads of freshly roasted coffee, bourbon, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, roasted malt, asphalt. Just delicious. The coffee hits strong and then gives way to a bourbon laced roast with chocolate. Wow.

"In a head to head with 5 Speedways (including the base which is one of the top beers on this site) this was the best! Barreling adds a level andsmooths things out compared to the non-BA vietnamese coffee blend, which was awesome, but in comparison tasted a little young and sweet. This was near perfection!"

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Tap on the RBSG bus at 10am. Muddy black to ink pour. Small tan foam. Nose is thick caramel, thick peppermint, salted caramel pot de creme. Taste is rich, tangy, lactic, and heavy on dark chocolate and lemon acid. Not too dense. Easy to enjoy. Nose opens up nicely as it warms. Thanks t0rin0 and AleSmith for this treat. Caramel and butterscotch balance bitter chocolate and lemon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
