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.
Serving type: bottle
