On tap at FoBAB 2012.

Appearance - Dark brown/black with a little bit of tan lacing for the head

Smell - The bourbon comes through very strong here, also get hints of chocolate.

Taste - This thing tastes amazing. At first you get a punch of chocolate, vanilla, oak. Then the raspberries hit you. It is not like any other fruit infused beer I have had. The raspberries have a huge presence, but you don't get any sour taste.

Mouthfeel - It is thick enough to cover your mouth, but thin enough to go down smooth. Perfect consistency.

Overall - It is a shame this thing did not place at FoBAB. It is a sweeter, desert type beer. However, it blends just perfectly. It blends, in my opinion, better than 99% of the beers at Fobab. I cannot believe this beer is not winning Haymarket competitions left and right.

Serving type: on-tap

This one is pure raspberry up front and one of the better raspberry beers that I've had. It smells of fresh raspberry juice, chocolate and roasted malt. The taste is just like a chocolate covered raspberry dipped in whiskey. The chocolate is definitely dark as you get a slight bitter and roasted aspect from it. If you see this at Haymarket, you need to get some as it is one of the best fruit stouts I've had.
