Strong cherry aroma and flavor. Just a little hint of honey and chocolate. Head does not last long but is beautiful. Full palate that leaves you craving chocolate.

Bouteille dguste en dessert dun faste souper. Liquide bien noir qui coule lourdement dans mon verre, presque comme un sirop. a semble visqueux et sirupeux. De la framboises disent-ils? a parat! Belle mousse de surface qui tient plusieurs minutes avant de seffacer. Des armes bien sucrs et dcadents de bourbon et de framboises. Les mats contribuent lensemble en apportant une prsence trs chocolate, cohrente avec la chaleur du bourbon. a le fait. En bouche lensemble est moins bien dfini. Jai tantt limpression que le fruit ajoute plus de sucre que de relles saveurs. Prsence notable de lalcool avec parfums de framboises et de chocolat noir. Effervescence moyenne, texture riche et sirupeuse. Bonne buvabilit.

Alengrin (4999) - BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2017
Bottle shared at RBBWG 2017 in Antwerp. Pale beige, moussy head quickly reduced to a thin yet steady rim, black robe with hazy burgundy edges. Aroma of molten black chocolate, blueberry jam (more so than the actually applied raspberries), candied fig, toffee, caramel, cappuccino, beef stock, teriyaki, vanilla, honey, fresh paint. Fig, raisin and elderberries in the mouth, sweetish with a softly souring counterflavor as well as some beefy umami, softish carbo, slick and oily mouthfeel. Toffeeish and nutty malt body, chocolatey, with a thin fruity tartness all around but no sharp tartness, solvent-rich finish (varnish) with lots of creamy chocolatey malt bittersweetness, lingering honey sweetness, warming bourbon and a subtle hint of woodiness. Very attractive, complicated and fascinating stout, really.

Taste is finer, herbal licorice bourbon sugar syrup, boozy, mocha, chocolate, touch licorice, unlike others I didnt get the raspberries, boozy & sugary finish. Body is basic boozy, malty, licorice.

2014. Saving some money. Drinking the random shit in my cellar. Raspberry actually still there. Beer has soy sauced out a little but thats ok. Still a creamy mouthfeel. Nice drink a little sweet.

Darwenus (1038) - Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2016
I hate to use a word like "lush" in a beer review, but "lush" is exactly the right word for this damn thing. It pours dark brown without much foam, and the aroma is chocolate and vanilla from the barrel aging, plus a hint of the raspberries. The flavor adds coffee to that mix. The raspberries come through on the finish and dont dominate the flavor, they just add an indulgent quality after all of the character from the malt and the barrel. This is the kind of beer that closes a meal in style, but it was also fine by itself.

willisread (3089) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - DEC 21, 2016
Bottle shared. Pours a deep brown with a small beige head that dissipates quickly. Low carbonation and visually looks like molasses. Roasted cacao aged honey and floral and vinous notes. Tart berry and honey on the palate. Smooth with lots of raspberry character and roasted coffee on the finish.

Beer is black and oily with a lingering tan foam. Raspberries pop, but are muted by the roasted coffee finish.

Bottle at dirty Matts, courtesy of the dirtiest of Matts. Opaque black with a forthy cola head. Raspberries are present but not overwhelming, complement the bittersweet baking chocolate and bourbon, espresso, almost burnt malts, vanilla bean and oak. Full body and mild carbonation, smooth and easy to drink with a nice complex and long finish.
