This ale is large in body and pitch black in the glass. This stout is brewed one year in advance of release. Itís allowed to ferment then placed in bourbon barrels from Woodford Reserve in Kentucky. After the first aging step this ale is matured on raspberries and cocoa nibs. Tons of chocolate and cherry make this beer a dessert in the glass experience. A wonderfully decadent holiday treat!

Nose is impressive - dark chocolate covered raspberries. Pours out dark brown with a touch of mocha foam. Taste is raspberry forward, a fair amount of heat, some chocolate, not a lot of barrel flavor. Thereís something a touch off/unusual in the finish. Itís tasty. More raspberry than bramble rye or lindly park. Iím happy I had the chance to try it.

Bottle...This beer rocks!Ö Black as tar with a small, creamy, cappuccino head. Good retention. The aroma is of brownies slathered with raspberry jam. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is a fusion of sour cherries, raspberries, charcoal and chocolate. Finishes tart with a light pinch of cocoa powder. Thanks to ctipping for sharing this bottle of world class beer!

Bottle shared @ Arminís - really nice. Dark pour with a tan head. Massive raspberry and chocolate nose - fantastic. Excellent taste and mouthfeel. Dry finish with tons of chocolate bitterness. I had this about two years ago and did not like it as much.

Bottle @ Arminís house, courtesy of arminjewell and CLevar. Thanks! Pours a black appearance with a light brown head. Dark chocolate, raspberry truffle, tart cherry, roasty aroma. Quite roasty, rich dark chocolate, slight leathery/tannic, dark grape, black cherry, raspberry flavor. Quite good.

Black with small white head. Big raspberry nose with some chocolate malt. Taste is heavy on tart raspberry. Just too much fruit for me.

[Bottle] Pours brown with a light brown head. Aroma is huge on barrel, with some chocolate, and coconut. Itís okay, but there is also a blast of alcohol which hurts it. The taste is likewise overpowered with alcohol. Lots of barrel again as well, with underlying fruit and faint tartness. Not very good. Medium-thin mouthfeel with a long finish. Overall, this was definitely a disappointment.

I have to go against the grain on this one. I did not think this was a good beer. The aroma was medicinal berry and reminded me of Leinenkugelís Berry Weiss. Some real raspberry flavor, and roasted malt. It needs some adjustment. #85.

Bottle shared on Huny day. Very interesting nose with coconut and raspberry aromas. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Wow, this is wacky and very good. The body is a little thin, with raspberry, coconut, and dark roasted malts and undercurrents of Woodfordís and oak...
