Bomber to a snifter, retyping my notes a bit hastily since the site crashed as I submitted my review
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha and slightly pink foam that died down to a frothy ring pretty quick. Mild carbonation stemming from the sides of the glass, good lacing, too.
Smells of oak, bourbon, strong red berries, molasses, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and alcohol. Everything plays off each other pretty well, really good smelling
Taste is a bit better than the nose- rich oak, boozy bourbon, sweet red berries, molasses, licorice, roasted dark chocolate and coffee, vanilla, and alcohol on the finish. Really complex and palatable
Feel is thick and creamy, bitter, and drinks the hottest of all this years BCB. That said it’s ridiculously easy to sip on
Overall I was a bit skeptical of the idea and price, but this is a really solid stout. Glad I have another sitting in my crawl space I’ll pop in a few years

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.
