RBESG 2006 Grand Tasting. Dark brown colour. Malty sweet aroma with notes of vomit. Unpleasant. Sweetish moderately malty flavour with nothing to delight you. Pass.

From a 12 oz can into a pint glass, it’s a dark brown, almost pitch brown with a thick, creamy brownish tan head. The head fades at a rapid clip but leave a nice thin cap and collar of clumpy lace all the way to the bottom of the glass. Nose of toasted malt and dark chocolate. In the mouth it tastes of toasted malt, brown sugar, dark chocolate. Good stout-like flavor profile (Munich Dunkel). Mouthfeel is creamy and rich with low carbonation bite; very smooth. Overall, quite good, almost like a dark chocolate malted milkshake beer. Would definitely try again.

September 2015; now brewed by Faubourgh Brewing. Dixie Brewing established in 1907 and due to social changes the work DIXIE is no longer acceptable. Brewery was destroyed by hurricane and rebuilt under Faubourgh (“Fo-burg”) name. 7/28/21 - had this at Faubourgh- this is the only carryover beer from Dixie Brewing.

Clear dark copper appearance displays a good size beige head and plenty of lacing. Sweet, malty aroma with a hint of molasses and a light touch of soy. Mild, sweet, malty flavor, passively hopped, with a dry aftertaste. Medium bodied leading to a short lived finish. Goes down easy, in a Big Easy sort of way, but now I want some gumbo.

My good friend and old neighbor from the 'Wego gave me a bottle of this beer. It poured a clear dark mahogany amber with off white head thatbis not leaving much lace. The scent was subtle....waif of malt. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with caramel malt base and even finish. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.

12oz can - dates 02/11/2020 - poured into a traditional pilsner glass at 38°F.

Pours a deep dark brown woth mahogany highlights, topped with three fingers (narrow glass) of dense dark khaki head with amazing retention. Hangs around for minutes before settling to a sustained finger. When held to the light, it is revealed that the beer is quite translucent, and the brown turns mahogany with mahogany turning reddish-maroon. Ample visible effervescence.

Very pilsner-like. Grainy, slightly bready pilsner malt with only a touch of roast. Nutty. Some caramel, toasted bread, a dusting of cocoa, and then back to the grainy pils base. Some bright fruitiness lending notes of green apple and pear.

Palate: The beer greets the palate with pilsner malt, caramel, nutty malted barley, dusty grain, a hint of toast, and then turns back towards a very strong indication of caramel and milk chocolate. Some brighter yeast notes poke through, but it isn't the fruity bouquet from the aroma. The finish brings malted milk balls, caramel, chocolate chips, and then just a whisper of some bittering hops in the background, lending a resinous hint.

Mouthfeel/Body: The beer is medium-light in body. It's light and crisp like a pils, but that roasted malt does lend some heft to it. It has a smooth roundness to it - in part from that nutty malt, but also from the slightly subdued effervescence. Some mid-palate sweetness, but dries out very nicely in the finish with some roast - not quite char.

Overall: Not a bad Euro dark lager. Much more character than some others I've had, and finds a nice balance between coming across as a dark beer, but letting that crisp pilsner malt underneath shine. It's a simple beer, but it's good as a simple beer. It doesn't leave me wishing there was more to it, and for that, I will call this a good example of the style. Worth trying.

I recently had this beer in the French Quarter in a very relaxed dinner setting.

Look: dark brown with a thin white head

Aroma: Toasted bread, caramel

Taste: Toasted bread, caramel, a little bit like Coca Cola. Decent but not a whole lot of flavor.

Body/Overall: light body, fizzy, refreshing but a bit soda like

Poured from a bottle, but not hard enough so I had to stir it up to reduce the carbonation feel. Amber color, pretty easy to see through. Smells a bit of fruity/wheat, not strong at all. Taste is similar, with wheat at the beginning, mild fruitiness in the middle, ending with a bit of caramel. Pretty thin/light bodied, moderately high carbonation. Not bad for a lager, but definitely prefer stouts.
