RBSG 07. Tap at Surly. Dark brown, tan carbonation. Toasty, biscuity malt with a mild dose of earthy, bitter hops on the end. Coffee is strong but not overpowering. The roasted coffee and the malt are well integrated. Medium body, just a touch more carbonation than balanced, easy to drink. From notes.

Location: 16 oz can via trade with NickD717, 11/10/09

Aroma: The coffee is predominant in the nose, along with some roasted malts, vanilla, and chocolate
Appearance: Pours a dark red-brown color with a decent amount of tan head, and quite a bit of lace
Flavor: The taste is quite similar to the nose, much of the same characteristics, again quite dominated by the coffee malts
Palate: Solidly drinkable mouthfeel, fairly thick and creamy with a decent amount of body
Overall Impression: This was a solid beer. Not only my first rating from the brewery, but my first from the great state of Minnesota. Overall, it made for a decent beer, but I just didnt get that much beyond the roasted coffee.

16 oz. can. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is coffee, with rich malt, and a surprising amount of nuttiness. The flavor has a pleasing amount of dark coffee with a creaminess that is not expected. Caramel malts are present early, but give way to an earthy, nutty and bitter finish. Medium bodied and very smooth to drink. The coffee is a bit too forward, but I think this is a push with the regular Bender.

50 can, Fargo, ND, USA. Like smelling a cup of coffee with a splash of rootbeer. Head disappears quickly, pure coffee in the mouth. Sweet creeping flavor once the coffee wears down. Tastes like a cold black coffee with 4 spoons of sugar (in a good way).

16 oz can.pours very dark brown to black with a nice rich cream head. powerful aromas of rich coffee persist into the chocolate and warmness of the coffee. long lasting finish of coffee and mocha. a nice coffee beer, but not as good as others.

Can thanks to MatSciGuy. Pour is dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is fresh roasted coffee beans. The malt in faintly detectable under the huge coffee bean aroma. Light cinnamon and light chocolate pudding. This is an impressive aroma. if I was blindfolded, I would have guessed fresh roasted coffee beams for sure. Not surprisingly, flavor is huge fresh-brewed coffee and a nice malty backbone. A handful of other mild dark flavors like tobacco and hints of smoke also present but they are incredibly minor compared to the awesome coffee flavor. If you hate coffee, youll hate this. I only kind of like coffee, but I love this beer. Not very complex, but certainly unique and quite tasty.

At a tasting, thanks David, small light brownish head, clear dark copper colour with with dark red taints, distinct aroma of fresh grounded roasted coffee, malty aroma with something soapy, strong distinct coffee dryness. The coffee traits are the hallmarks of this beer, but behind it is boring and one dimensional.
