From bomber. Pours dark and thick with just a touch of brown head. Aroma hints of raspberry like Mark McGuire hinted if steroids. The addition of raspberry to this beer is a complete waste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scwoptoy (6) - - OCT 24, 2013 does not count
Dark as night. Chocolate and coffee on the nose. Sharp raspberries flavors and smooth vanilla-oak creaminess on the tongue. Smooth body with a very sharp and pronounced boozy finish. Not quiet perfectly balanced, but fantastic nonetheless! Will age and revisit in one year intervals.

Mora2000 (5853) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Black pour with a brown head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate, roasted malt and raspberry notes. The flavor is similar with the berry notes cutting through the heavy chocolate and roasted malt notes. I also get some honey notes. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice stout.

bytemesis (3486) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle thanks to Cocoapuph! Pours opaque black with a small black head and good lacing. Aroma is raspberry truffles, cocolate, roasted malts. Flavor is the same, raspberry liquer, roastiness and cocoa. Medium plus sweet with some zesty roasty bitterness. Full body, creamy. Not really mixing great for me.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2013
So, Ive been on a mission to slowly empty my cellar. This was the next one up. Black, of course, with a beige head. Smells like raspberry jam on toast. Not a lot of bourbon in the aroma. Flavor is more raspberry, like on on toast. Slightly burned toast, in fact. Smooth notes of coffee and darks chocolate. Maybe just a hint of bourbon. Not bad, really...

Compared against bramble. Little more tart harsher bourbon. Bourbon and fruit dont mix.

ryanfolty (1900) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2014 June 23, 2013 - bottle at Bryces. Black pour with limited head. Roasted malt, bourbon and raspberry aroma. Taste was consistent with aroma but a tart raspberry. Medium body and smooth. February 21, 2014 - this bottle had some veggies in the taste so dropped overall by 1 to 15.
