It was too syrupy for me. The raspberries seemed artificial. Also not of fan of smokey beers and this had a hint of that.

Interesting taste, a tad sour for a stout.

Looked good on the pour, but quickly took a bad turn. Slight aroma of roasted malt and faint fruit. No barrel detected. Subtle raspberry in the mid. Awkwardly out of place light mouth feel.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Appearance: Nice dark black pour with a small beige head, small amount of lacing

Smell: Event horizon + raspberries, and the raspberries seem out of place. Nice notes of malt, oak, coffee, dark chocolate and bourbon

Taste: The Raspberries are dominant but not pleasant or integrated. Very odd mixup. The base beer, minus the berries, has great notes of malt, oak, coffee, bourbon and chocolate.

Mouthfeel - medium/full body and mouthfeel

Overall: I was really looking forward to this one and definitely disappointed, the raspberries just do not play well with this imperial stout.
