Holy moly! Rarely have I came across a sweet beer that I can enjoy but this stout completely changed my mind. The pour is of a very dark brown almost black with little head. The aroma of mixed berry stings the nostrils while the taste has that of fresh boysenberry while maintaining an imperial flavor. Hands down one of the best stouts I've had in awhile!
