Californian coffee stout, sampled at Gents Bierfestival, thanks Ster for sharing. Medium thick, creamy, pale greyish white head, jet black robe. Aroma of peanut butter, vanilla-flavoured coffee, toasted pine nuts, espresso, butterscotch, ’fondant’ chocolate sauce, Cuban cigars. Sweetish and sourish onset, dried fruits, cranberry- and fig-like impressions, soft carbo, oily mouthfeel. Nutty and toasty, slightly toffeeish malt body developing growing, mouthfilling roasted bitterness towards the end, remaining very nutty at the same time, but eventually becoming a tad ashy as well, very bitter with this roastedness accentuated by the coffee and peppery, long-lasting, drying hop bitterness. Delicious modern American stout. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2017

Clear dark brown beer, creamy small beige head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, lots of crème brûlée, vanilla, sweet impression, lots of chocolate. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty roasted, hoppy, bitter, caramel, some dark chocolate. Aftertaste: vanilla, hoppy, very resinous bitterness, hoppy, bit metallic, dry bitter finish with some roast.
Black with dark head. Aroma has loads of roasted nuts and vanilla. Flavour is similar but overall too bitter. Very full flavoured though. 77ships (10810) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2017
Thank you for sharing RB Crew! Sampled 655 ml. bottle @ GBF 2017. Black, solid tanned head. Really nice nose, sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, low condensed milk & even hazelnut. Taste falters a bit compared to smell, more muted cacao, almost herbal, medium sweet, great smell, so/so taste but decent for ABV I suppose. Easy cacao & mocha body.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Flavourfull, strong roasted flavour with a long dry finish. A slightl smoky finish completes the beer. Not too complex but quite enjoyable and well brewed with a lot of flavour for the low alcohol content.
