2013 batch.

A: Jet black pour with a medium-sized, dense and dark brown head. Head sticks around quite well. Tiniest streaks of lacing.

S: Raspberries before I even get the glass near my face. Strong raspberry aroma with bourbon. Unique for sure. Some caramel and toasted sugar from the bourbon. Oaky too. I swear I get some honey but it might be the power of suggestion.

T: Sweet raspberries and bourbon together at the forefront. Very interesting and tasty combination. Caramel, toffee and honey in the middle. There is a sudden hit of very bitter, almost acrid char and cocoa in the finish as the adjuncts fade. Finish is more lingering, drying bitter char and oak.

M: Heavy but not overly so. Dry aftertaste.

O: Interesting and unique combination for a beer. In fact I'm guessing this is one of a kind. Interesting juxtaposition of sugary sweet fruits up front and dry char and cocoa on the back end. Totally opposite ends of the spectrum, separated by about one second. It's tasty and unique. Not as mind blowing as I had hoped, but alas. Some chocolate to go with the raspberry would have been really nice I think. A little residual sweetness would be excellent in the finish too. Why am I making suggestions? I do not know.
