RBESG08 grand tasting
Brilliant of me to write it down just as "Wagtail", luckily others have rated it before me. Almost black body, coffee nose. Light creamy sweetish taste, malt and coffee. Ok enough.

Bottled. Deep amber colour, small brown head. Aroma is coffee, some malts, mild roast. Flavour is malts, some acidic fruits, roasted notes as well as old coffee. Quite nice.

Bottle at the RBESG08 Grand tasting. Alround rating: Good solid stout, chocolaty dark malts, balanced and not too overly roasty.

Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Black with a dissipating tan head. Aroma was smoky with some malt. Flavour had some chocolate and coffee going on, but I actually felt this was a wee bit on the thin side with not enough of a finish. Will try and re visit this again when less baked perhaps.

RBESG2008: 50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown to black with a lacing tan head. Chocolate malt and roasted aroma, coffee too. Flavour is roasted and chocolate malt. Smooth and roasted into a nice roasted acidic finish.

500 ml bottle thanks to Casey. Pours a pure black body with a medium tan head that goes down to nothing after a few minutes. The aroma is full of an earthy roasted malt and smoke. The taste is very smooth and nice; a touch of dark fruits, some milk chocolate, a good roasted malt aspect, and a slightly bitter finish. Very nice.

downender (8882) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2008
Bottle bought at Williams Deli, Nailsworth. Jet black with a thin, but tight, tan head. Big aroma of roasted malt, caramelised brown sugar and bitter chocolate. Full yet smooth mouth feel, with heaps more chocolate, brambles and charcoal. The slight sweetness at the start slowly gives way to an earthy, bitter finish with a touch of spritzy carbonation. Excellent all round.
