Draft at Kuhnhenn, served in a tulip, this ale looked to be sort of a muddy brown in the glass with a bit of red-brown rust or similar, there was more than a one finger light tan cover of bubbles, it left nice lacing on the glass, this drink had aromas of peach fruit and bread, dark malt notes and faint apple, the flavors were light toasted malt, peach and apple, dark malt, faint chocolate and caramel like notes, the finish had some spice, it was creamy with a medium to less than full mouth feel, and there was soft to average carbonation, the flavor was bigger than the nose, the aromas were sort of weak, a nice drink.

Draft at MBGSF07 from notes. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, caramel, toasted, dark fruits, candied fruits, some spicy character, bitterness to the finish, alcohol is fairly well hidden.

Mahogany pour. Starts off a little roasty with light banana on the finish and some slight chocolate. The banana character really starts to come out and dominate as it warms. Medium body with high carbonation.

Tap 5-12-07. Medium brown, mahogany highlights, tan head. Fruity esters up front. Banana, plum and sour cherry or grape. Light roastiness and spice. Flavor much the same, fruity/residual sugar sweetness, light roast through the middle, until candied fruit takes over and lingers after you’ve finished. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, thins a little at times.

clear dark brown, wispy beige head, sweet chocolate aroma with lots of fruity esters and reoccurring alcohol, creamy body, rich chocolate flavor with lots of ripe fruit, just the right amount of sweetness to bring out the chocolate and fruit

Tmoney99 (14855) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Draft sample at MBGF07. Poured hazy brown color with medium fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma was complex sweet malty yeasty. Medium body. Medium sweet rootbeer flavor with medium bittersweet with small alcohol bite finish. Good brew worth trying with some age.

3.3
decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
RBSG grand tasting. Growler. A slightly hazed brown pour with no head or lace. A slightly sour drink that is almost tart. Solid palate that is neither fizzy nor watery. A good beer that I’m sure would be better from the tap fresh.

3.2
Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 24, 2007
RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Murky brown with a tan head. Fruity, brown sugar, a bit toasty. Full and sticky. Sugary finish of mildly burnt caramel. I’m not sure what htis beer wants to be. It’s not really bad, but confused. Does that make sense? No, not likely, but it’s how I feel about it.

3.3
boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Growler. Orange, white and beige color trifecta, cloudy and sullen. Looks burned and dusty. Oily, mostly diminishing, thin off-white head. The aroma is toasty, caramel, orange rind, grape, spicy yeast and plums, some light sugars and alcohol. Flavor is quite spicy, mildly bitter, moderately sweet with light to medium acidity. The mouthfeel is full bodied, sticky sweet and adequately carbonated. Caramel in the finish seemed physically tested, strained, like it was scraped from the bottom of a pot long forgotten on the stove. Bitterness is lengthy. Dissapointing.
