on tap @ GABF 2008. Pours in the typical style, dark with a tan head. Aroma is light, roasted nuts, some coffee. It was a bit light on flavor, with an overly watery palate. I wasn’t a huge fan, but that may have something to do with me trying their Sticky Stout first. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Nitro... RBSG ‘08... Pitch black with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Forever retention... not fair, nitro stuff always looks great! Sweet, roasted aroma. Light bodied and ultra-creamy with pillow-soft carbonation. The well-balanced, but very reserved flavor, leans slightly on the sweet side of balance. The usual suspects in a dry stout... coffee and chocolate... SURPRISE! Watery, mildly sweet finish. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 16, 2008
RBSG 2008. Pours dark brown with red hues at the edges, light beige head. Felt under carbonated, but this might have been intentional. The body was very thin and with more carbonation might have felt even thinner. Very mild roastiness up front, oaty with a soft chocolate flavor, not much for hops towards the finish. yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 6, 2008
From tap at Carlsbad. Pours dark brown to black with a lacing tan head. Aroma is mild and roasted malt. Almost without carbonation. Smooth and hard roasted malt with a coffeeish note. Ends dry and roasted malty.

Poured clear deep brown with a short cap of tan head. The aroma picked up dry-roasted chocolate and coffee upfront with not much bitterness backing it.. simple, but quite nice. The flavor was sweeter and also not-so-complex with semi-sweet chocolate and coffee represented.. light coffee bitterness with grassy notes at the edges.. OK. Slick on the palate with lower carbonation and lighter body.. dry and not very fulfilling in the end. Odeed (1806) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 3, 2008
(ON NITRO @ TORONADO)reminds me a bit of guinness.although you get more coffee in the aroma and flavor.nice sipping stout for sure. mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Pours pitch black with a creamy light tan head. Nitro is very evident here. The nose is of sweet malts, light chocolate cream, and vanilla. Very watery and thin on the palate. Not big on the flavor either. Some choclate malt, and vanilla characters, but really thin on the palate. Never been a huge fan of nitro brews. They look nice, but always seem devoid of much flavor, and always seem thin. thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Tap @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad. Pours a deep brown with ruby edges and a creamy off-white head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste is the same, with a finish a bit too watery for my tastes. Good, but it could’ve been so much more. bsierra (213) - Vista, California, USA - JUL 26, 2008
On tap at Churchill’s Pub and Grill. Pours a deep dark brown hue with a thick creamy tan head. Nose is rich with toasted malt and chocolate. Taste is warm with bits of coffee, chocolate, and malt balanced nicely with subtle hops and hints of caramel. Finish is smooth and has a bit of lingering toastiness. This is a great beer for food pairing and could easily be followed by 2 or 3 more pints, after the first!
