Notes/Commercial Description:
In pre-Christian times, the celebration of darkness and light was marked with great halls filled with smoke & mirrors. Guilded goblets brimming with seasonal brews were lifted to lips, speaking a language no longer known. The winter wind finds its way through heavy wood doors. The present connects the past through the brewer's art and a new beer is born: Feast of Fools... A perfect dessert beer brewed exclusively for the holiday season.

Original review:

OK magic hat needs to knock it off with these damn corks. Thick raspberry choclate stout with tons of flavor and huge body. Too much head and tastes to much like fruits other than raspeberry. An awesome and drinkable beer! Can't wait for the '05-'06 version!

A year later this beer became a huge and delicious champion of Raspberry Stout. Not many stouts are as delicious this one. I've been having trouble finding more.

Pours a nice thick black color with a thin ring of a head.

Smells of raspberry with a slight hint of chocolate.

Large taste of raspberry with a smooth creaminess that reminds me of a milk stout.

Way to smooth. Magic Hat ought to stop handing these out as gifts to retailers and start selling these to the public again. This is one hell of a humdinger!

4.21/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

2009 or 2010 bottle. Unsure.

A - Very dark with two or three fingers of mocha head that slowly dissipates and leaves a bit behind.

S - Sweet with lots of raspberry. Some roasted malts present.

T- The raspberry still has a lot of presence in this, but it's balanced out nicely with roasty malts and hints of chocolate and coffee. Sweet, but not overwhelmingly so.

M - Light to medium bodied with little carbonation. Surprised how light bodied this is.

This is one I've wanted to try for a while. It's very nice though a bit lighter than I'd like. I'd be interested to try this beer fresh. Wish this was easier to get.
