3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
RBESG 2016 in Barcelona, on tap at the Vaso de Oro. Black colour, creamy beige head. Moderately roasty aroma. Roasty dry flavour, the oatmeal probably lends some smoothness to it all, but is otherwise not to be identified. A fairly good porter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
8th July 2016: Tap at Vaso de Oro with the RBESG guys. Black with a deep creamy textured beige topping. More hops coming through the brew than I expected from a Porter and I liked it. Mild coffee notes were complemented by the hops content and they blended very nicely: no Oatmeal flavours though, not for me anyway. Pleasant all the same.
