RBSG07. From 50 cL bottle (Bavarian US export version). Pours muddy brown with an off white head. Aroma is banana and bubblegum. Flavour is the same into the finish which has some bitterness. I just don’t get the bubblegum thing.

Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Keg. Almost opaque dark brown beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Sweetish malts with mild figgy dark fruits. A little malt cream and sweet bubblegum. Light finish. Delivers on the style without ever being spectacular.

Beerhunter111 (20490) - P´Castle, GERMANY - FEB 2, 2014
500ml Flasche. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes dunkelbraunes Bier mit geringer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch hefig, intensiv malzig fruchtig. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig süß mit angenehmer Fruchtigkeit, hefig, minimal würzig.

4.1
Koelschtrinker (20422) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 8, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2011 Dunkler, sehr starker Hefeantrunk, in dem der Alkohol bereits mitspielt. Das würzige aber auch trockene Malz drängt sich nicht in den Vordergrund, sorgt aber für ausreichend Tiefgang. Länger ruht sich das Bier auf diesen Aromen aus, was durchaus gefällt, denn viel zu verbessern gibt es nicht. Die hefigen Noten werden zum Ende hin etwas süßer, das Bier trotz seiner Stärke süffig. Das Malz scheint sich hier fast unterzuordnen, obwohl es, keine Frage, recht stark ist. Im Nachgeschmack typisch weizenbockartig dunkelhefig und stark. Vollmundiger Weizenbock wie ich ihn mag! 11/12/12/12/12/12
