Hand bottle… Murky, dark brown ale with a very small, fat-bubbled, off-white head. The aroma is a medley of oak and toasted pistachios amidst gentle notes of brandy and vanilla. Full-bodied and oily with only a trace of carbonation. Leans toward the sweet side of balance, but only by a hair. Not a whole lot going on, flavor-wise, really. Unflawed, seamless and quite malty, but bland. Lots of dissonance between the fantastic nose and mundane flavor. Short, watery finish. Bottle courtesy of hankchinaski!

Draft at Buddha grand opening. Pours a near black. Nose is some definite brandy and wine like notes with some strong chocolate following. Flavor is very light roast followed by mellow milk chocolate and a creamy lactose note at the end. Very solid milk porter (which you don’t see to many of ).

On tap for the grand opening. Again, much like the Piiti porter in appearance, but with the subtle hint of brandy and bourbon in the nose. I thought that the flavors would be a lot more complex with the addition to the brandy barrels, which it was to a degree, but nothing too dramatic or over the top, which was actually quite pleasing.
