Wax sealed bomber poured into a teku. Acquired via IP trade with iHia

Appearance: A deep, dark brown with a tiny ring of foam. I could have sworn the foamy head had a bit of a red tinge to it, but it's probably my brain/eyes playing tricks on me knowing ahead of time that this has raspberry in it.

Smell: Raspberry hit me as soon as I opened the bottle. After pouring it, the smell reminds me of those dark chocolate covered raspberry gummy candies at Trader Joe's

Taste: Just like those previously mentioned candies. Bitter dark chocolate lingers as it warms up. Not picking up much of the bourbon barrel character though.

Mouthfeel: Not light, but not super heavy and viscous. Right in between. The raspberry sweetness and chocolatey bitterness tend to punch me in the mouth and I find myself sipping some water to recover.

Overall: The only similar beer I have had was BCBS Backyard Rye. Definitely enjoyed both and like the style. Nice to see that this is a regular seasonal release, so if you're in the mood, it can certainly be tracked down. Would certainly have this again if the opportunity presented itself.
