look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours black with no head at all. Barely a ring of bubbles around the top. Some carbonation stubbornly clinging to the glass.

S - Raspberry dark chocolate. Fresh raspberries. Smells like dessert.

T - Follows the nose, with hints of bourbon and booze as well. Mostly well balanced with a very tart finish.

M - Medium-full body with light carbonation. Very pleasant.

O - This is too tart for my taste. I would love to try one of these with some age on it. The fresh raspberries really stand out.

22oz split into a snifter

A: Pours pitch black with a half finger of light brown head, which receded fairly quickly.

S: Strong sweet bourbon with lots of booze, dark chocolate, and caramel sweetness. Faint raspberries in the background. Very much reminiscent of BCBS. A bit much for me.

T: Much better than aroma. Strong dark chocolate and roast with raspberries in the background. Caramel sweetness to balance. A bit boozy, but not bad.

M: Very thick and creamy.

O: A very intense bourbon barrel aged imperial stout, quite similar to BCBS. The flavor is pretty balanced, though. The raspberries are way in the background, but provide a nice touch. I have a hard time believing this is 10%, though. Seems more like 13%.

Bottle shared at the NWI Tasting Group December Meetup

A - Dark brown with a small cream colored head

S - Bramble, light honey, chocolate, and light oak on the finish

T - Strong raspberry up front with chocolate and caramel on the backend. Reminds me of GI bramble but a bit sweeter due to the honey

MF - Medium body with a nice syrup that remains on the tongue as well as being slighly oily

O - Really solid stout that has a nice raspberry presence. If you love GI Bramble, this could satisfy your craving. Plus since this is made each year, it would be easier to get ahold of than paying the increasing price for Bramble
