Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. RBESG Rome 2010. Pours a hazy dark amber golden with a tiny and rough off-white head. Dried overripe fruit and a little yeast - no real overripe fruit or barrel character in the nose but some alcohol. Quite a full body, rather low in carbonation, sweet dried fruit and nuts now with the Grappa barrel coming a little through. Warming alcohol finish. 050610

madmitch76 (23295) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2010
June 5th 2010. Bottle at Domus Birrae. Thanks to the brewer for opening and to Fiujiln for persuading him! Cloudy amber beer. A little mild grappa on the nose. Light dry palate. A little toffee malt supporting a mellow grappa - not overpowering. Finishes soft and dry. Very interesting beer - the amount of grappa is really nicely judged.

Travlr (22440) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle courtesy of Bruno (grazie signore!), shared with SHIG. Decanted into a large beer glass, leaving behind a cloudy brown suspension. Clear copper color. Aroma of port wine and brandy. Taste is similar to a barrel aged quad, very smooth, with port wine flavors, and alcohol at the finish. Amazingly good - I love grappa, but never would have thought to put beer into a grappa cask!

cgarvieuk (22383) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 1, 2010
Bottle at RBESG 2010 Rome ... copper ... thin white head ... sweet berry ... little spirit nose ... sweet soft and mellow ... again a little spirit ... assume its the grappa i really like (UPDATE tried some grappa now. now too keen on its own but i dont like whisky on its own ... and its the grappa thats lifting this beer) very unusual.

RBESG 2010, bottle at Domus Birrae beershop, Rome, thanks to Bruno and the staff for sharing!
10% ABV

Corked bottle. Cloudy dark amber color; low carbonation; little head. Warming malt aroma. Good body strength; as often happens, these high gravity (non)-Belgian beers, there is some vegetables flavor; sweetish; the Grappa appears in the end, its delicate but nice. -t could be better with a maltier beer with less vegatables in it, and even with stronger Grappa touch.

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 23, 2012
Grappageruch, der sich auch im Antrunk deutlich zeigt. Ausgewogen, der trockene Grappa wird mit der Zeit von wrzioger, spter malzigen Noten berstimmt. Suibtile Alkoholnoten, erneut deutlich nach Grappa, milde Wrzigkeit, rund, recht milder Ausklang. 6/12/12/9/13/11
