Bottle shared with stillmatic2232.
Pours a dark black, with a half inch mocha colored head, and a good amount of lacing down the glass.
Aromas include fresh raspberry, roasted malt, and chocolate.
The taste is similar. There is only the lightest amount of roasted malt in the flavor- the raspberry and chocolate are the big starts. The raspberry flavor is mostly sweet and slightly tart- more jammy than reminiscent of whole raspberries. The honey provides an additional layer of sweetness as well. There is some rich milk chocolate, and a little bit of a lactose flavor. The bourbon flavor is very mild, and only noticeable when the beer warms up.
Medium bodied, but I wish it could be thicker, slightly thin for a BA stout. Low carbonation, creamy, sweet mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
This was excellent. Beef up the body a little bit, and it would be perfect.

A: The beer is jet black and poured with essentially no head, leaving only a minuscule ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of chocolate and raspberries are present in the nose. As the beer begins to warm up, slight notes of bourbon become noticeable.
T: Much like the smell, the taste has flavors of both chocolate and raspberries, the latter of which stand out and linger through the finish. Slight hints of sweetness from the honey are also perceptible. As the beer warms up, the raspberries become more dominant. No alcohol is perceptible.
M: It feels a little more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: If you like raspberries, this is a really nice imperial stout as they stand out and would make this a good beer to pair with a dessert. It tastes a bit strong, but is for the most part very easy to drink.

A- Black with small purple ring; like Prince.
S- Big chocolate and raspberry upfront! Nice barrel notes after that. It smells like a raspberry chocolate that you would eat... writer's block
T- Big chocolate and raspberry. More raspberry than chocolate though. Very creamy tasting too
M- I am knocking this one for lack of carb, and it's not like it gets by like CCB; but other than that the M is fantastic. It leaves a wax layer of raspberry chocolate in your mouth. Glorious, but no carb
O- A fantastic brew! I would def seek this out as it is an experience
