Tap at Triumph in Philly for RBSG 2011. The pour is a reddish amber with lots of big yellow lace. Nose is mildly estery with spice and caramel. Comes across as brown sugar and sweet in the aroma. Taste is very clean with small soapiness. Ends fairly tart with small sour cherry. Loads of character for a style plagued by the most boring beers in the world. Nice one. blipp (9691) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Cask. Pours amber with an off white head. Toasty malty aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor is clean and malty, with toast, light roast, and a light sweetness. Not bad. Braudog (6835) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2003
This looks to be a beautiful dark red/brown beer with a classical head. The beer is smooth, but a bit flat. Unfortunately, I found this beer a bit boring with little overarching character or distinct flavors. Bitter ending, in more ways than one.

This poured a medium clear brown color with an off white head. Aroma was of very light nuts, some toasted malts and light sweet brown sugar. Flavor was lightly acidic, low sweetness, nice toasted/roasted notes and some caramel as well. Decent offering for the style. Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draft. Pours a brune body with a yellow off white head. Nutty malty body caramel and some dark fruit esters. Hint of wood and a thin sessionable brown ale. Good stuff.
