from a pretty recent batch of this stuff from todays date 11-26-11;
A: Pours a sort of wild strawberry muddy brown pale violet color with a distinguished, very thinly cut ginger colored with decent retention and good lacing.
S: subdued ginger notes and cane sugar on the cane.
an afterthought of wintergreen.
T: Almost at the same time, sweet brown sugar cane slowly fills the mouth right next to sliced ginger (the head). A whisper of ripe red fruit over the middle, and finishing with a very clean sort of halfway chewed double mint gum, or a mild citrus/wintergreen if you prefer. Not impressive depth of flavor or boldness.
M: latte froth.
O: very quaffable but not all that outstanding in expression of flavor. Not worth the price, these beers have become very expensive in the last two years.

(bottle code RG.13.12 - poured into a tall Unibroue tulip)
A: tall, gooey-spongy foam to start... somewhat cloudy, dark caramel color - looks like liquified caramel in the process of cooling off dry...
S: browned, dry caramel overtone... old, candied ginger
T: heavy malt foundation, malty ginger beer, herbal bitterness in the finish... powdered ginger and grain-husky bitterness lingers... tiny hint of spicy alcohol
M: fatty-round... thinnish, chewy-gooey viscosity... booze enhances the notably dry finish
O: caramel-y malt and powdered ginger are core to the taste here... it appears that it could be a goopy mess, however, the flavors seem to have decent balance and it thankfully ends up surprisingly dry... if you dig malt and ginger anything, this is a good one
