    RBESG 2016 in Barcelona. Shared can at Rosses i Torrades. Very dark brown colour. Roasty aroma and flavour, medium dry, well hopped. An average brown ale.

    Pours transparent sepia with a very thick and persistent buff head. Aroma has subtle but inviting caramel, woody hop and toasted malt notes, plus a hint of chocolate. Flavor echoes the spectrum of the aroma and takes everything up at least a notch, though with more chocolate and not so much hops, and adds an earthy hint. Mouthfeel presents firm body and decent fizz. Maybe not the brown ale to end all brown ales, but definitely not s####y. A beer of note.

    I received a 4 pack of pints from a friend who was in Louisville on business. A brown pour with mahogany highlights, small light tan head. Roasted malt, roasted nuts and a hint of chocolate. Tastes as it smells, roasted malt abounds, with notes of chocolate and a hint of coffee. A bit chalky. Has some qualities of a porter, but mouthfeel is definitely a brown ale. A pleasant surprise. I had never heard of this brewery before. Worth a try.
