The beer pours a blackish brown color with excellent head retention and plenty of lacing. On the nose, I picked considerable raspberry, dark chocolate, vanilla and light coffee, which in combination gave the beer something of a blueberry aroma. The flavor profile replicated the nose pretty closely, though the berry flavor really dominates in this beer, and is almost too much of a good thing. It's still very good, but I'm not sure just how well the sweet berry flavor blends in with the excellent base beer. Mouthfeel is fairly full, though this beer is not at all heavy or cloying. Alcohol is very well integrated into the flavor profile, and so drinkability is pretty good.

A solid effort for sure, but I still pretty the Ethiopian coffee version the most so far. Nevertheless, very glad to have the opportunity to try this beer.

16 oz. can dated 10/13/17

Pours dark maroon black with a dense creamy brown foam head. Smells like dark chocolate, mixed berry jelly, blackberry, raspberry, roasted malts, vanilla, cola, dark fruits, molasses, toasted brown sugar, maple, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Tastes like super dark chocolate, mixed berry jelly, blackberry, raspberry, dark roasted malts, vanilla, dark fruits, molasses, toasted brown sugar, maple, with earthy herbal grassy pine. Feels thick medium bodied, creamy with moderate smooth carbonation. Overall a really great blackberry raspberry vanilla imperial stout.
