Poured into my Delirium tulip.
Appeared a jet black color with a bit of red-colored "hue" to it around the edges when held to the light. Very fluffy three finger head which also had a bit of reddish tone to it.
Smell was fantastic. Smelled like black raspberries mixed with chocolate. Slight alcohol scent but not overpowering. A bit roasty.
Taste was a bit of a let down compared to the smell. Way too sweet. I do like raspberry but this was a bit overpowering. Would have liked the bourbon to take away a bit of the raspberry but it was very mild.
Mouthfeel was good - medium body, smooth, no heat from the bourbon. A bit of a sour feel to it.
Overall I liked it and thought it was a good representation of the style. They hit the nail on the head with what they were going for, though I think it was a bit too on the sweet side for my liking. Glad I tried it, though!

I have had this beer many times but apparently never reviewed.
22 oz. bottle poured in a Sam Adams perfect pour glass.
Nose is raspberry and chocolate and lots of it. Poured straight down the middle of the glass produced little head and no lacing is present after sipping. Color is very dark but clarity is good with a flash light.
Front end is alcoholic, but not bourbonesque. Needs to age more. I have had this bottle for about 6 months since the release. Good thing I have more and some to trade :)
Tastes great, heavy mouth coating of sweetness and cocoa leading to a more char, oakiness and dry-sweet finish.
Overall I freaking love this beer and am happy to be able to get it when it comes out but I would gladly get a pour of a better stout if I had access to one in my state.

Picked this up from a great trade with Mike! Thick pitch black pour with an incredibly dark brown head that unfortunately faded almost immediately with no lacing. Big bold, roasty nose totally dominated by the raspberries along with hints of dark chocolate, booze, honey, and subtle bourbon notes. The taste follows suit with the raspberries once again dominating. Chocolate fudge, booze, and cocoa along with hints of honey, coffee, and black cherries. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy and a bit sweet up front, but it mellows as it warms. The finish is subtly warming and slightly bitter. Overall, this is definitely a sipper as it's very rich. It's not quite as sweet as I had expected it to be, but it's still more of a desert beer for my tastes. Reminds me a lot of the Goose Island Cherry Rye.
