Looks black with a purple tinge. Smells of sour raspberry, blackberry and slight whiskey backend. Taste is HUGE raspberry and blackberry with some spiciness and chocolate in the end. Feel is of wonderful lingering raspberry that lasts. Overall wow! Very suprised by the fruit influence. Amazing.

Initially the nose is a bit off putting but the taste is very different. Chocolate and raspberry are prominent. Creamy feel and the alcohol is hidden well. Would have to say I prefer backyard slightly, but both are world class.

Great fruity smell, combined with chocolate and coffe. You can really taste the fruit in this beer, which goes perfectly with the rest of the taste. Great beer!
