Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Pours almost pure black with a nice thick foamy head and good lace. Not overcarbed which is good. Lots of roasted coffee and chocolate in the aroma. Flavor is roast and chocolate malts, lot sof coffee, nutty, and a bit hoppy in the end. Very very smooth. Hard to believe it is only 5%.

Pours a dark with a copious amount of head. Sweet toasted malt aroma with a touch of fruity hop. Mostly dry in flavor with good carbonation and only lightly bitter. Nutty coffee aftertaste. Excellent beer from a small brewery in Bar Harbor, Me

Rastacouere (6176) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2005 Deep dark brown, nice light brown head. Campfire nose, pleasantly dry yet with vanilla flavors. Brown sugar sweetness contrasts nicely with bushes like hops. It tries to be dry in mouth,but this brown sugar presence cant be stopped. It feels slightly oaty, floury and cerealic. Farily rich stout in terms of ingredients I assume, but not particularly complex and somewhat overrated perhaps. Medium bodied, slightly powdery texture, rich for 5%. Good.
Amendment: An extremely carbonated example with pleasant floury and somewhat dry oatmeal-like flavours, Most pleasant roastiness that never hints at tartness and a flawless apperance boasting a gigantic head.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2005
RBSG 05 - body is a deep brown, almost opaque, with scarlet tones and a cream colored head. aroma was very mild, some roasts and coffee, but nothing very distinctive or strong. flavor was rich with deep roasted coffee and sweet chocolate and vanilla highlights. body was very very smooth and medium to full in terms of thickness. very nice, but alot sweeter than other dry stouts if you are comparing by style.

asheft (3058) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2005
[bottle at RBSG] Almost opaque black with a yellowy-red colour at the thin parts of the glass. The foam formed a nice tan ring and an island. Vanilla-bourbon aroma with lots of alcohol and some piney US hops and coffee notes. A roasty bourbon flavour with some vanilla has good bittering from the hops, mostly, and diacetyl. A little burnt at the end. Medium body with low carbonation and almost a clean finish, if it were not for that burnt flavour. Very nice.

Very dark, tan head. Lots of milk chocolate, some molasses, mild roast. Medium to full bodied, drink pretty big for only 5%. Very nice.

07.08.05 RBSG Dark brown, not quite black, lofty tan head. Plain and dry, some raisin. Some sweet caramel is a surprise. Very nice, not nearly as dry or bitter as expected/hoped.

jercraigs (10258) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2005
RBSG 2005. Black body, khaki head. (3+) Roasty dark malt aroma carries over to the flavour, surprisingly restrained roast still dominates over incongruously sweet malt. Medium-full bodied.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Pour was black with a thin dense cocoa colored head...smell was roasty coffee and butter bread...taste was almost like a pastry...sweet and malty with a nice bitter coffee finish...this was a surprising gem!!!

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2005
Brown color with some light at the edges. Toasty, scorching dry malt flavors, has that Irish/dry stout starchy quality down pat. But past that, its just another regular stout: old, musty, airy, dry, a little bland. Didnt stand up to the quality stouts of the night.
