decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 12, 2009
A burnt coffee aroma from a deep brown almost black pour with a creamy tan head and lace. Raspberry with hard coffee. A full bodied beer. I’ll be honest I knocked .2 off because I rated this as a stout at first.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bomber at the brewery, #898 of 1750. Black with a thin brown head. A Belgian ale? Really? Sounds like an identity crisis. This beer smells like a raspberry stout with some Belgian yeast notes. Tastes like it too, chocolaty and light, sweet raspberry. Whatever it is, it was clearly the best beer at Big Boss during my visit.
