Bottle (dregs)… RBWG ‘10… Dark brown ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is reserved - I get chocolate, but not a boatload of hops. Medium-bodied and raspy with mostly expired carbonation. Chocolaty flavor with medium to heavy charred bitterness. Finishes very bitter and way dry. Bottle courtesy of kp!
