Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is jet black, with a tall, foamy, dense, chocolate tan colored head. Wow, this is a beauty. Aromas of roasted notes, rich chocolate, rich bourbon and vanilla, woody notes, earthy highlights, bitter coffee, and a solid hops bitterness. There is some hints of smoke in there, too. Flavors are richly sweet forward, with a backbone of smoke and bitter coffee to balance everything out. Chocolate, cream, bourbon, vanilla, and hazelnut all combine to provide a thick layer of rich sweetness to assault your palate. Tremendous. There is enough campfire smoke in there to really guilt you into drinking this beer in the woods or on the porch of a cabin. Smooth, heavy, and velvety in mouth, with a bitter and dry edge to keep it from becoming just another massive stout/milkshake type beer. Hops bitterness still shines through in the aftertaste that is otherwise comprised of chocolate and coffee. Good, solid resinous and pitchy hops, with a subtle kick of citrus. The finish is smooth and creamy, but with a bitter and subtly dry undertone. This is a beast of a beer. Congrats on surviving another year, Mike! You churned out one helluva brew!

Special RBWG-2014 cask on tap at the brewery.
Opaque and black; modest head

Aroma: plenty of dark roasted grains; exceptional only for its strength.

Flavor: perhaps even more dark and burnt grain than the aroma suggests with a touch of smoke. Overly burnt.

Feel: a bit harsh (despite its name), perhaps from the overload of ingredients.

O: Made for a gathering of beer geeks, this extreme beer is over the top with an overload of burnt grains and very dark roasted malts. Extreme to the point of challenging; not easy to manage with this style.
