2013 out of a snifter. Liked how they stamped the wax. Toppling Goliath can learn something from them. The beer was decent, rather syrupy, but all the flavors combined for a very smoky taste that I didn't care for.

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.

Bourbon is there but could be more present. Rather roasty. Too much honey for me. THe raspberries are there but do not provide much in the way of fruit. Neither of the Olde Hickory stout have done it for me.

Another great barrel aged beer. Love the additions ofnthe raspberries and homey. Dont sense the honey as much, but like the twist.
