This is a fantastic beer I wish was produced every year. The deep dark pour with a bit of roseish cola type head looked great. The smell of the roasted stout with the berries was fantastic and the taste followed. The only knock on this beer was a bit of a thin mouthfeel which was a bit unexpected based upon the pour. This is about as good as it gets. I wish I had another bottle to cellar as I would love to see how the flavors blend when the berries fade a bit ... ISO?

A - Jet black, minimal mocha head that dissipates quickly.
S - Strawberry pop-tarts. Berry dominates the nose. You get hints of chocolate and bourbon.
T - Wow. Mixed berry cobbler with a chocolate, but not bitter finish. Deep rich berry flavor that isn't tart or artificial at all. The bourbon gives it another layer of sweetness that is different. Very delicious.
M - I would have liked it to be thicker but it was ok. Not thin by any means.
O - Best variant I've had and best fruit stout ive ever had. This beer drinks incredible right now.
