Poured from a bottle into a Prairie Teku glass.
Apperance: Very thick, next to no head. Pitch black, with a slight raspberry tone to it. A coffee colored crown around the edge of the glass. No lacing to speak of.
Smell: Loads of bourbon, sweet jammy berries, and lots of chocolate. Smells delicious.
Taste: Tastes like Bourbon County tends to. Loads of dark chocolate and bourbon flavors, a hint of spicy rye, and then an overwhelming berry tanginess on the finish. Like biting into a delicious raspberry truffle.
Mouthfeel: Deliciously thick. Coats the mouth for sure, and has a rather sticky finish.
Overall: This is absolutely delicious. Probably my favorite of the Bourbon county variants so far, and yes I've had Proprietors. The berries just work so well with the chocolate notes of the beer, it's really just damn good. I've decided that fruited stouts are always delicious, or at least the two examples I've had of them so far have been.

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.
