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.

2013 bottle. As a raspberry addict I am happy to finally try this one.

Appearance: Creamy beige head that seems to not want to go away. Love it!!

Smell: Maybe my favorite aspect. As a raspberry fan the sweetness of the fruit and honey is delightful. Can slightly smell the bourbon but happy the focus is on the sweetness.

Taste: Wow. Love that the raspberry is so strong and the bourbon takes the back seat.

Mouthfeel: Sweetness aside, this is a delightfully put together stout.

Overall: So, so good. If you haven't had it you really need to track this one down.

2013 Vintage poured into a snifter

A: Pours a nice thick oil black with a small maybe half to 1 finger mocha head that fades rather quickly.

S: Huge roasted malts and dark chocolate. Raspberries are prominent but not overwhelmingly so. Barrel characteristics are also there. Has a slight sweetness to the nose as well.

T: Dark chocolate, tart raspberries that blend well with the slight sweetness of the honey. A nice roast maltiness throughout with a touch of coffee and vanilla. The barrel is there as well, but takes a backseat to the main components of this wonderful brew.

M: Creamy, viscus, medium to full body that coats the mouth and goes down smooth. Alcohol is very well hidden.

O: Phenomenal stout - I'd say the best stout to come out of NC (if not it is #2). Well blended and just hits all the right things in all the right places. Worth seeing out or trading for.
