Found this at a store. Only after I bought it did I realize it was a one time release in 2008. Had I known this, I probably wouldn't have bought it. I'm trying this today 3/3/12.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a Samuel Smith Pint.

A- Black cola like in color. Huge fluffy tan head that lingers for a bit. Lots of retention on the glass. So far so good.

S- Slightly sour, coffee cocoa powder, chocolate, raisins, roasted malts.

T- It isn't bad considering its age. I'm getting a lot of malt, with some raisins and chocolate. Its also a bit sour with a lingering coffee like bitter aftertaste.

M- Thick and oily, very little carbonation.

O- Memories of what once was a solid stout is what I got from this. Not bad considering its age, but definitely not something I'd try again. Definitely past its prime. I'll finish the glass but not so sure I want to finish the bottle.

Found this '08 oddity randomly. "BoppaDooAyDoo Style Ale," poured from a 22oz bottle into a Spiegelau tulip.

A: Pours a brownish-black with a small tan-head. A little bit of lacing.

S: Molasses, brown sugar, a bit of mushy dried fruit like prune, a bit of chocolate.

T: Tastes more like a dark barleywine than an RIS. Smooth dark fruit (fig, prune, raisin), roasted grain, brown sugar, subtle chocolate, a little bit of alcohol. A bit of oxidation and metallic notes in the middle.

M: Very fine carbonation with a relatively thick body.

O: Not nearly as bad as I expected. Obviously past its prime, yet still pretty tasty.
