Bottle. Sugary artificial raspberry, like you find in a jelly filled donut. Boozy red wine, oak. Dry, almost stale coffee. I prefer the regular version.

Pour out of growler, thick oily blackish-purple pour, no head still pour. Aroma brought notes of dark raspberry, oak, cocoa into thick coffee, the bourbon comes in with some vanilla, touch of honey, slight spice, a bit muddled. Taste is a mix of honey, chocolate, espresso bean into a bit of coffee bean, some raspberry and berry notes into some honey, more bourbon and almost a sour grainy note, finishing slightly bitter, sweet. The flavors are a bit muddled, prefer the original version.

Bottle: Thanks, Darshaun. Brilliant color of red wine, translucent & topped with a pink & lavender stained head that evaporates into nothing literally within seconds of pouring. Huge legs on the glass when swirled. Looks like wine. Aroma is so damn unique, hard to describe. Definitely get the underlying notes of juicy raspberry, along with cherry, red grape, & a moderate red wine sting. Some dry wood notes along the edges. HUGE, dry-ass coffee beans layered over the top of everything with a slight roasty char in the very back-end. No "bourbon" on the nose. Flavor is in the same caliber of uniqueness. Flavors of raspberry pie filling, both sweet & lightly acidic with softer tones of cherry, Pinot Noir, burnt coffee beans, dry staves of old wood, & a mild kiss of vanilla towards the end. There’s a moderate honey-like sweetness mid-palate, but this mead dries things out insanely well in the finish, leaving a mostly tannic & dry, woody aftertaste. Bordering on astringent, but it stops just shy. I’ve had nothing like this. Really tasty & certainly unique.

Bottle: Thanks Secret Santa

The bourbon barrel is noticeable but plenty of base mead very much present. Very warming alcohol that is not as sweet nor quite as fruity as non BA version... A tad more coffee around the edges. Be honest I like the non Imperialized version better but this is still tasty enough.

From the bottle at fobab. How the heck didn’t this win a metal? Pours a beautiful dark purple color with a purpley brown head. Aromas of blackberries, espresso, cocoa powder. Taste is sweet with a roasted coffee bitter finish. This stuff is amazing. Highlight of fobab.

On tap @ FoBAB 2014. Pour is hazy purple/red with a small off-white head that fades quickly. Aroma and flavor of heavy coffee grounds, light blackberry, dark honey, raspberry, vanilla, and oak. Finish is syrupy and sweet.

Wow, this was definitely the surprise of the night at FOBAB. Pouted a deep dark purple with a pink head. Aroma is tons of jammy fresh squeeze black berries, and dark roasted coffee. Boner giving. Flavor was just as nice, jammy and seedy, follow by a dark coffee swallow, never too sweet, and mild honey notes to show its still a Mead. Awesome!
