Draft sample at MBGSF 10 from notes. Pours dark brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have bigger chocolate chips, wheat malts, light banana, some dark fruit, interesting beer through the rain.

VertBaconStrips (2383) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - AUG 4, 2011
On tap during MBF 2010, RBSG. Blaaaaaaack, good head - its raining, storming and lightning and pouring like you wouldnt believe - it is a MESS. The tents are getting hammered and everyone is soaked. Huge chocolate, smooth creamychocolate, wheres the wheat? I cant hit that at all. All chocolate, bit of hops getting cooked up here, more of this sweetness and a bit of booze, smells good with a bit of fruit on the back end - young and fresh and finally a hit of wheat - its alright. Tastewise this could be better - chocolate, wheat, orange, slightly sour - getting lazy as I yell at my phone over the rain, Goes down good and finishes with more chocolate.

One of the coolest beers Ive had. It is so good at balancing the rich chocolate with a light and drinkable feel. Yummy. Excited to share with the folks at EBF :)

MBGSF 2010. Poured clear black color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, banana and clove aroma. Medium body with a oily smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy dark chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy spice sweet finish of moderate to0 long duration. Standout beer.

hopscotch (11024) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Draft RBSG 2010 This beer rocks! Clear, nearly black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Great retention. Crimson highlights dazzle when held up to light. The nose is big mocha, banana, vanilla and deeply roasted grains. Full-bodied and velvety with fizzy/airy carbonation. The hearty, nutty, mocha flavor lends additional essences of singed grains and banana. Leans toward the sweet side of balance, but not by much. Finishes crisp; but also filling and roasty. Unique world class beer!
