22 oz green waxed bottle, 2010 vintage. Served in a snifter.

A - Looks like motor oil. Leaves huge legs on the glass. Syrupy with about 1 finger of dark brown head.

S - Burnt vanilla cookies, some brown sugar and chocolate,.

T - Very sugary and a big kiss of vanilla flavors. A good chocolate base, but nothing really special. If you like sickeningly sweet malty beverages this one is probably for you. It's way too sweet.

M - Very oily with and upper medium body. Low carbonation, but a nice soft texture.

O - A very sweet RIS with a bunch of extra sugar added. I don't know what all the hype is about It's ok, but not great. Taste like sweet soy sauce.
