3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at rbsg. In the tasting glass dark with a hint of foam. Nose is rum and I can not get much else. Alcoholic mouth feel. Flavor show vanilla but the rum is overwhelming. Finish shows a hint of chocolate and vanilla under all that rum . This has the makings of good beer but there was too run left in the barrels it seems to me.

RBSG 2016, hey, did Art bring this? Just wondering. He must have known How Iíd rate it, heheh. Volatile whisky smell makes for a nose alarm. Not really black, mostly really dark brown. Taste is what else? Whisky soaked beer. Why do we age beer in barrels? To change the taste ofthe beer or to augment? What ever, what else can be said, except Iím grateful you guys let me taste it, for a tick.
