At RateBeer Best 2017. Comes dark brown with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel. Taste is malt, dark fruit, caramel, and brown sugar. Obviously on the sweet side.

Leighton (19830) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Keg at the Flavor Bistro with all my RB bros. Pours clear, deep brown with a foamy, tan head. The nose holds toasted malts, caramel, light earth. Medium sweet flavour with more toasted bread character, more caramel, earth, dried berries. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with earthy bitterness, hints of pine, toasted caramel. OK stuff. Pushes the limits of malt liquor, I will add.

anstei (1687) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - FEB 11, 2017
Tap at SF Beer Week Opening Gala. Pours clear brown. Aroma: Burnt lager indeed, little roast, but mostly pale malts and a nice veil of hops on top. Medium body, lots of toasted malts and nuts, quite bitter but also caramelly sweet. Nice

@RBB Dark amber. Toasty aroma and flavor as advertised. Sweet leaning malt bite. Cool if not really a standout.

I finally get to try the epic, legendary, whispered about malt liquor. Poured up on tap at the Flavor Bistro during RBWG16 where it exhibits a mahogany colored body that supports a lasting tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts blended with roasted malts and a biscuit malt character. The taste is sugary sweet with malts before getting into a thin dark roasted maltiness and a light sense of sweet nuttiness. As it warmed a bit I got a sliver of burnt malts and faint lagery fruity esters coming to the surface.

Draft at Flavor, served in a pint glass. Pours a somewhat cloudy amber with a finger of off-white head, lasting and bubbly. Big toasted malts, obviously, with chocolate, nuts, brown sugar, caramel, leaves, and earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, toasty mouthfeel that finishes dry. I hate to boast, but after wanting for so long, Ive had Toast. Its really good, too.

[1/29/16] Draught at Flavor Bistro in Santa Rosa. Very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toast, nuts. Sweet flavor with caramel, toast, nuts, chocolate. Medium-bodied. Nice, but how is this a malt liquor?!

On tap @ FlavoUr Jockey Santa Rosa. Pours a hazy dark brown head with a nice brown head. Aroma has caramel, nuts, chocolate, and roast. Medium body. Well balanced. I had maybe 25oz of it. Clean FlavoUr like an average dunkel. Roast, chocolate, grass, and toffee in the mouth. Not a traditional malt liquor but it drinks just fine.
