The flavor on this beer is fantastic. Nice blend of berry pie like flavors, sweet, tart, and juicy, accompanied with some chocolate notes.

Poured from a bottle dated 20NOV2013. Look is rather unassuming, with a slight light brown head that dissipates quickly - two years maybe has impacted that. The nose is awesome - a little boozy, a little charred, a little soy sauce but a lot of fruity sweetness comes through as well - different from any other beer I've experienced. Taste is where this really pops - a perfect blend of berry sweetness, chocolate, whiskey and roasty/nutty flavors. Drinks very smooth, with almost no alcohol burn despite 12.7% abv. A seriously awesome beer to welcome in 2016.

this pours out with a little redder hue than normal BCS.. fruits are huge in the nose and the taste.. this has to warm up to almost room temp for me or it is too sweet. if your a berried stout person this is for you.. awesome beer..
