Very pleased with this beer. First taste is of raspberry truffles. The middle hits you with a white wine warmth and then a sweet, port-like aftertaste. It really takes my love of a darker malt beer and adds some unique flavors I'm not used to getting from a stout or imperial stout. Definitely a sipper!

Very tart raspberry aroma, nice funkiness, with a great raspberry tartness and acetic character. Smells like olives. Good barrel character.

Pours a muddy brown with a thick beige head that diminishes into a thin line that does not dissipate. The fragrance is strong of raspberry with a slightly astringent smell.

The taste is very good. Tart and fruity like a dry white wine, but complex and almost of rancid grape on the finish. The flavor of stone fruit is evident as it should be in a nice quad. Great mouthfeel. The subtle tartness makes me want to continue to take another sip. Great job on this one.
