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.
