2 month old bottle review.

Now, this one I actually prefer fresher rather than aged. Which is a subjective thing, but this 2 month bottle I have had recently has best catered to my own personal tastes. As always, YMMV.

Pours out rich brown with a nice frothy two finger head that lasts for several minutes but doesn't have much lacing left behind on the glass. Medium light carbonation and body.

Smells and tastes of raisin bread and waffles with a touch of molasses sweetness and a smear of figgy jam on top of fresh baked muffins... I'm thinking that it is probably the blend of medium yeastiness and medium-light sweetness with just a little whisper of pseudo-cinnamon / allspice blend in the background that gives me such a nostalgic sensory rush of hearty breakfasts full of baked goods, and I really enjoy it a lot.
