Deepest brown you can be without being black. As soon as I cracked the cap, I could smell the raspberries. In the tulip, the booze really comes through. It's super-smooth, and the only real complaint I have is that the oak mutes both the honey and the berries. This one is so close to perfect, but I think I'd prefer it without the barrel.

A- Pours very dark. Small tan head, mostly ring. Small bubble cling lace.
S - Wow. Coffee. Chocolate. Slight soy sauce. Incredible.
T - Most of the smell attributes. Soy more prominent in flavor. Very nice.
M - Medium to heavy body. Good carb, though light, good balance and finish.
D - Huge ABV and you can tell. Good for one.

Thanks to my cousin Sonny for sharing this over a long weekend of beer tasting. Fully reviewed Sunday to E-mail notes.
A- Poured to four glasses from the bomber with a midnight black body. Light mocha brown head forms to about a finger with decent retention. Head descends to a frothy ring at the edges. Tons of legs lead to spotty lacing.
S- Raspberry nectar at an impressive strength. The fruit is definitely the star but a rich chocolate, dark roasty malt base comes through just enough to make you realize this is not a straight fruit beer. Fruity baked goods.
T- Damn, Olde Hickory... the raspberry comes through from the nose in a fashion I can't quite say that I have ever found in another beer. Fresh, authentic fruit feel dominates the flavor early on but the base stout opens up after a few sips. Decadent chocolate malts, dark roast grains, sweetness and nuttiness. Oak wood feel but no whiskey for me.
MF- Thick body with a creamy and slightly silky texture. Carbonation is at a medium level. No alcohol warmth present and semi-tart raspberry lingers with some roast bitterness.
Not sure I have ever found a beer with raspberry flavor quite like this. Each sip reveals waves of flavor that oscillates between straight fresh raspberry and rich chocolate truffle. The barrels don't really do much for me but insane raspberry takes the cake.
