Poured out of a 750mL bottle, into a tulip. No dating on the bottle. Let sit for a few minutes to air in the glass.

A: Dark brown, almost black body. No light comes through, not even at the edge. Nice one-finger head, dark tan, slightly fizzy, diminished semi-fast to a ring at the edge of the surface. Light lacing.

S: Malty stout scent. Hints of raspberries. Slight aroma od alcohol, expected at 9.2%.

T: Cocoa flavors meet you right in the front. Stouty maltiness comes in right behind and carries to the end. Raspberry flavors arrive in the middle, carry to the finish. None of the flavors is overpowering, and they all balance well. Definitely a sweeter beer, and finishes with a light berry sweetness.

M: Medium body, with light carbonation. Feels very soft on the palate, with a warmth form the alcohol.

O: HOLY COW! This is great beer. The flavors are well balanced, and the alcohol content at 9.2% is barely noticeable. This is very smooth, and easy to drink...pace yourself, because this is like driving a 911, you're gonna look down and be going 120 without realizing it. Great beer!

Best beer I have had from this brewery. Taste is big time raspberries, sweet and dark chocolate, cocoa, and roasted malt. Tastes like a raspberry cordial mixed with a stout. Excellent dessert beer that I will have to look for again.
