look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured into Darkness tulip 2-12-12
A: Black with a khaki colored head. Ruby around the edges with a nice bit of lacing.
S: I absolutely love the smell of this beer. Dark chocolate and charred malt with a wonderful sweet raspberry puree aroma. Mild oak as well.
T: Taste is intense charred/roasted malt and a bitter chocolate and tart raspberries. Just doesn't work for me, the raspberries add a bit of acidity and make the stout feel a bit thin and taste a bit more bitter.
M: A little thinner than I'd like. Medium bodied to thin for the style.
O: I really enjoyed sipping on this beer and could not stop smelling it. I do not get much honey from it but that may be because there are so many other elements to it.

Thanks to my cousin Sonny for sharing this over a long weekend of beer tasting. Fully reviewed Sunday to E-mail notes.
A- Poured to four glasses from the bomber with a midnight black body. Light mocha brown head forms to about a finger with decent retention. Head descends to a frothy ring at the edges. Tons of legs lead to spotty lacing.
S- Raspberry nectar at an impressive strength. The fruit is definitely the star but a rich chocolate, dark roasty malt base comes through just enough to make you realize this is not a straight fruit beer. Fruity baked goods.
T- Damn, Olde Hickory... the raspberry comes through from the nose in a fashion I can't quite say that I have ever found in another beer. Fresh, authentic fruit feel dominates the flavor early on but the base stout opens up after a few sips. Decadent chocolate malts, dark roast grains, sweetness and nuttiness. Oak wood feel but no whiskey for me.
MF- Thick body with a creamy and slightly silky texture. Carbonation is at a medium level. No alcohol warmth present and semi-tart raspberry lingers with some roast bitterness.
Not sure I have ever found a beer with raspberry flavor quite like this. Each sip reveals waves of flavor that oscillates between straight fresh raspberry and rich chocolate truffle. The barrels don't really do much for me but insane raspberry takes the cake.
