Bottle poured into snifter.

A: Very dark black pour with a small amount of tan head. Appears to be very thick.
S: The rasberries on this are very much in the front of the aroma. Roasty goodness follows faintly and lingers.
T: Rasberry sweetness up front and lingering for a while. Very complex and balanced, I only get a little bit of honey on this one.
M: Smooth, carbed well.
O: This in a very unique brew, anyone who has a chance to try this certainly should!

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!
