RBESG pt 18. Moncada. Grand Tasting. Hazy red - amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy. Sweetish caramel malts, mild creamy toffee. Light dried fruits. Vague rum streak. Light dry finish. Pretty tasty.
Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 London Grand Tasting - Moncada Brewery. Pours hazy amber with a frothy beige head. Sweet, with some bready malts, brown sugar and toffee. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary finish with notes of maple syrup, toffee and bread. Sweet but good. Scopey (14992) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. It pours hazy deep brown with minimal head. The nose is toasty, dirt, wood, leather, spice,candy, fruit cake, vanilla and mild smoke. The taste is bitter-sweet, dried fruits, candy, raisin, figgy pudding, wood, nutty and cherry cola with a dry, sweetish finish. Fullish body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. All about the sweet candied dried fruits. OK at best. harrisoni (18823) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2014

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Bottle: Batch #47. Deep brown, some ruby red highlights with a nearly tan head on top that quickly settles to a stretched skin & collar. Aroma full of deep, dark fruits; apple skins, red grapes, plums. There’s both a sweet, candied element, as well as a cutting, pith-like bitterness underneath. Almost more clashing than balancing. Light spice. Taste of sugar coated plums & red grapes with molasses drizzle. Very sweet. Toasted caramel & toffee, a little buttery, again with some mild spice that I can’t identify. Finish tastes like Sugar in the Raw with a dry, dark malt roast & kisses of smoke. A little bit of lingering apple skin & plum, too. Kind of messy & a bit unbalanced, but not bad. I’ll admit I’m not particularly akin to the style, either.

Pours thick unclear dark amber with a beige head. Aroma brings light crystal sweet malts. Flavor brings sweet and root like malts, almost red beans, with a smooth malty ending. jjgmd (2181) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with a nice brown head. Nose is sweet, fruity and malty. Taste is sweet, toffee, with some spicy licorice notes. Finish is sweet as well, with a syrupy molasses moderately long finish. Quaff Score 8 / 10 zgaier (1957) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2014
