look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: This poured an opaque black cherry with a bit of tan head.
S: It smelled like dry cocoa powder, with a little dark fruit and rich dark chocolate.
T: It tasted like rich dark chocolate and sweet and tart raspberry, with some dry cocoa powder. It had a clean and lasting sweet tart aftertaste.
M: It was thick with fine carbonation. Very nice slick body.
D: This was a great beer, just what you would hope for based on the label. Perfect balance of sweet and tart, but not cloying in the scent or taste. The body was excellent, and the finish was smooth with pretty well hidden alcohol. So easy to drink, but it should be sipped and savored. Might hold up over time, but should probably be enjoyed fresh to get the most fruit character. Solid brew.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Cork nearly exploded, slow gusher, poured a nice deep dark almost black with a nice foamy, fluffy three finger mocha head that faded to a light creamy head

S - Aromas of dark chocolate, flashes of raspberries, metal, alcohol too.

T - Taste is much. much better than the nose. Big jammy raspberries, dark chocolate, bakers chocolate. Tastes like a raspberry truffle, light sweetness, roasted malts, alcohol hidden well. Shocked at how much better the taste is than the nose, the raspberry is more fruity berry, not cloy at all.

M - Mouthfeel is nice, lighter, alcohol hidden almost entirely. Wish it was a bit heavier/chewy.

O - Overall, a tasty stout. Wish the nose was better, and the mouthfeel was a bit heavier. Still, quite tasty
