4.19/5 rDev -7.7%
Poured into a snifter. Pours black, but not thick like motor oil, and has a ring of head that doesn't last very long. Smell is of strong berries, but I can't put my finger on the distinct berry, with vanilla and alcohol in the rearview mirror. Taste is tart and sweet, and it drinks pretty light for 12.7%. The aftertaste is strong of raspberries to me, with a light amount of chocolate, and it lingers. The body may be a tad light for such a big beer, but the berry flavors are going to slow you back down a bit.
Overall: I really liked it, and I'm glad I was able to try it.

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.
