650 ml bottle thanks to Adrien. 2013 vintage. carbonation is ok. Aroma is light oak, mild dark fruits and slight oxidation.

The flavor is muted Berry. The base has light roasted malt base with a very weak bourbon finish. Body is a tad thin for an imperial stout but still decent. Dry texture. Again I am impressed that this is still pretty drinkable for the amount of time it has sat in the bottle.

Gurthnar (5865) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 9, 2016
Bottle at Bolime tasting 3/2016. Clear very dark colour. Raspberry only very very lightly present in the very beginning of the flavour. Otherwise it is a boldly roasty RIS with lots of coffee and alcoholish bourbon-kind warmth and flavour. Very good.

Tasted by the Cannery Row Beer Club. We were a little disappointed that the raspberry was so hard to taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Let’s call it dark brown with reddish highlights, nice beige head that fades quickly, nice lacing. Raspberry aroma is noticeable right away. Mild chocolate and coffee flavors, with a sweet fruity finish, almost "winey". Very nice. Thanks to Jerry in Minnesota for this.

En bouteille le 15.02.16 L’ajout de framboise n’est pas forcément présent ni à l’odeur ni au gout. Un peu déçu pour le prix mais une bonne stout en soi

UPDATED: FEB 9, 2016 Vintage 2012. Dark fruits and roasted (or even burnt) malt in the aroma with a touch of tar and alcohol (a little bit). Soft, slightly sour taste with a touch of berries. Alcohol is well hidden. Burnt malt in a long dry aftertaste with some berries notes at the end. Good.
