Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Peg's snifter.
A: Essentially black, opaque, with a thin tan head that fades to a ring of brown foam quickly. An occasional bubble of carbonation breaks the surface.
S: Sweet booze, roasted chocolate, dark fruity sweetness, oak wood with vanilla dry tannins and deep roasted malts.
T: Dark roasted malts and liqueur (port) flavor, chocolate and a touch of coffee, then a burst of bright raspberry fruitiness, then dark chocolate, dark fruit (figs and plums) and sweet vanilla with dry tannins. Roasted malt bitterness and dryness into the hang. The fruity character increases some as the beer warms during the drink.
M: Has a rich body but it's thin when compared to the high standards of other CCB stouts. Low carbonation sensation. The alcohol is noticeable in both flavor and heat, but the overall impression isn't "hot" at all.
O: This was really good - fruity without tasting artificially sweet or cloying, roasty without being overly bitter. Excellent flavors, but the thinner body does detract a bit from the overall impression. It's possible the fruited character of the stout contributed to the lighter mouthfeel. Overall, though, very nice beer.

Blindly served, yet easily guessed, by Kyle. Thanks buddy.
Just oozes raspberries....Port plays a submissive role and the stout base of this beer simply doesn't stand much of a chance. Very sweet, very fruit driven, and disappointingly shallow on both Port influence and stouty goodness.
For a brewery that can excel in stouts and has a way with barrels, this is a bummer.
