Pete Crowley is absolutely showing off with this one. An amazing base stout that is brought to life by bright, tart raspberry notes. This alone would have been enough, but then it is aged in Templeton Rye barrels for several months and it goes next level. The boozy, dark red fruit mix helps this beer pair with virtually any dessert, particularly lemon bars.

Was so happy to see this offering back for another Haymarket Beerthday and can only hope it's an annual (if not more often) appearance.
