2012 bottle. Blue wax. Nose is huge in the fudge and vanilla. Light booze. Nearly black. Garnet highlights. Minimal head. A lightly oxidized lightly papery mouthfeel. Fudge and light chocolate with that still lingering paper oxidation. Light alcohol warming. Overall the mouthfeel and oxidation kill this beer. I have had many other 5050 BA Stouts that are way better.

2012. Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, whisky, dark fruits, touch of vanilla, molasses. A bit smoky in the flavor. Creamy body. Very nice.

2012 bomber bottle with blue wax shared by a friend. Poured a darker black colour with a slight tanned ring on top. Nose of sweet sticky chocolate, vanill, dark toffee, roasted nuts, oak, and sweet bourbon. Taste is sticky and full bodied, with roasted malts and more sweet bakers chocolate. With sweet marshmallow and bourbon. Pretty Nice!

22 oz bottle shared by Spencer. Vintage 2012. The pour is a dark brown, light black color with a thin light khaki colored head and some spots of lace. The aroma is a little boozy that comes through with a nice chocolate and some roast. It's pretty bland. The flavor has a little oak but pretty dominated by malts and roast. It's disappointing. The mouth feel is thin and light with a lingeringly roasty aftertaste. It's good, but disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Vintage 2012. Aroma is bourbon barrel, oatmeal with sugar, roasted malt, sweet malt, milk chocolate, very good. Appearance is black, light brown, great pour. Taste is booze, some roasted malt, chocolate, slight vanilla, pretty bland. Mouthfeel is thick, viscous, flavor is hanging and the carbonation is slightly off. Overall, I thought it would be better but it’s pretty bland.

RBAG ’15. From a 650ml brown bottle. Brown in colour qith good clarity and a brown head. Nose has bourbon, roast, quite rich. Taste has big malts, whisky/bourbon, chocolate, later barrel notes and hops. Alcohol develops nicely. Mellow and good a sippin’ beer. This series is always so good.
