Bottle - Dark chocolate, candied cherry and a sweet rum note. Deep jet black with visible particulates. Rum sweetness, dark chocolate and a bit of boozy heat on the finish. This seems like too much amounting to nothing. Thin body and lots of flavors that aren’t very cohesive.

[2/24/15] Draught at Burnside Brewing in Portland. Dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma of malt, candy-ish fruitiness and chocolate. Sweet candy-ish flavor with light sourness, some vanilla and a bit of chocolate. Medium-bodied. Not great.

Draft. Aroma of wood and berry. Flavors are rich and layered. Lots of strawberry, then dark chocolate, vanilla and maybe some Champagne? Fascinating beer.

Bottle. Colour...very dark brown with an initially massive, frothy head. Nose...the strawberries are prevalent as are hints of the chocolate. The rum is subdued. Palate...rather thin for an imperial stout, but the nice balanced flavours of strawberry and chocolate make up for the lack of thickness. The rum is quite pronounced after the stout has sat and warmed a bit, and there’s a slightly dry oaky taste on the finish. A dandy stout, just not really an impy stout.

Roasted malts and choclate dominate with very little fruit flavor if any. The strawberries are hidden and there is an off butterscotch note.

A fine chocolatey stout with just enough strawberries to supply some fruity essence without overdoing it. Great for dessert.

Fruit Beer Festival – Portland, OR – 2012
Dark black in color, thin tan head. Lots of barrel aroma and flavor. This was very tasty light fruit flavor lingers as the huge chocolate addition took over.
