My Bottom Line:
Raspberry syrup swims within this Imperial Stout’s roasted malts, leading towards a bitter and sweet dessert.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the blackness.
-This is too carbonated for this type of flavor profile, in my tastes.
-This tastes like a typical overly sugary American ‘truffle’.
-The mouthfeel is rich but not heavy.

On tap at the brewery taproom.

A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, sweet fruity chocolate malt with marshmallow, vanilla, alcohol warmth, very sweet. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, alcohol warmth, chocolate malt, pleasant. On tap at brewery.

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Keg @ Wedge during RBWG, Asheville. Deep brown pour with a tight tan head. Wonderfully rich chocolate truffle cake drenched in raspberry coulis. Decadent flavor. Dessert in a glass. Chocolate malts, rich roast. Slightly tart dark fruits and wood. Smooth coffee creamer. Full body, rich. Overall, Foret Noire was very similar to this. Chocolate and tart dark fruits aren’t a novel matching of flavors, but damn it works.

Draft at Wedge during RBWG. Pours dark brown to black in color with a smallbeige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, big raspberry, some earthy bitterness to the finish. Pretty solid, maybe not as full bodied as I would like, but good flavor.

@ Wedge Brewing / Asheville NC --- Opaque brown/black with a good brown head cover, dots of lace. Taste is roasted caramel malt that keeps on giving. Full sweet malt all the way through to a smidgen of bittering deep in the finish. Very satisfying, easy to drink. Recommended.

deyholla (7002) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2014. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges slowly and laces. Aroma has a strong tart raspberry note with only a hint of dark grain and roasted malt backing. Flavor has a rich raspberry note that is slightly tart and more dark grains coming through.
