Poured into a Brooklyn tulip around 40F.
Appearence is near black with a thin tan head which dissipates quickly into rimming.
Smell is overwhelmingly fruity. Straight raspberry jam. Chocolate as well. Not much bourbon.
Taste is fruity raspberry jam with underlying bourbon and vanilla notes. Strong chocolate notes.
Mouthfeel is standard to the series, with a smooth low carb silky mouthfeel, full, sticky.
Overall it's a fantastic brew. Fruit overwhelms most of the other flavors but it is so tasty. It will develop well, I imagine. Seek it out.

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.
