Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a super dark black pour with s rich deep mocha head that fades to a thin halo and light wisps. Big huge legs.

S - Aromas of nice raspberry, sweet honey, chocolate. The alcohol is rather noticeable, not much malts though.

T - Taste is very nice, incredibly smooth. Very nice raspberry jam without being sweet, rich dark chocolate, light honey to mellow things out. The base beer with the pappy barrels really shine through. Tastes like a raspberry truffle, very rich and smooth. The bourbon and honey really balance things out.

M - Mouthfeel is really smooth and silky, super rich.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer a lot. Thought the raspberry was well done here, but wanted a bit more.

2012 Lindley Park on-tap.

The berries have subdued, carbonation is perfect, and this beer has balanced perfectly. I would imagine this beer is at its very best 1-3 years after bottling. The combination of berry sweetness and dark chocolate are perfect and the amount of heat has settled to perfection. Olde Hickory is killing it right now.
