Into a tulip. Served at cellar temp. 2008.
A - 2 finger tan head, super black with ruby twinges wherever light can think about passing through. Tons of lacing.
S - Stale coffee. Slight hints of chocolate. That's about it.
T - More stale coffee, light coffee, slight bittersweet chocolate, powdered cocoa, slightly bitter coffee finish.
M - Creamy, thick, medium carbonation.
D - Pretty nice in the drinkability dept. It goes down easy, but it's also pretty unremarkable. I'm sorta dissapointed in this years batch.
Notes: 2008 is like FBS-light. The 2007 that I've had recently is pretty much double this, at least in terms of flavor and smell. While this isn't a bad brew at all, the 2008 just doesn't hold a candle to last years batch.
Sadder than that is the fact that, numbers wise, I rated DOAB quite similarly, when DOAB beats this with a stick. Fuck that, an aluminum baseball bat. On fire.
