$8 for a 16 ounce Prowler.

Pours a really dark brown or even black. Small short lived head of tan foam, no lacing to speak of.

Big aromas of chocolate, raspberries of the sweet kind, pinch of tart raspberries, more of the heavenly smelling chocolate, both sweet and bitter..mostly of the former.

Chocolate and raspberries up front adding both sweet and tart notes, some goodness from the barrel, toffee, some mild alcohol. Really brilliant flavours hitting my palate.

Light side of medium bodied, carbonation is very light.

Such a dessert beer!

Pours black with a fluffy one inch mocha head that settled to a ring in about a minute and left beautiful blotchy lacing. Smells of chocolate, raspberries and a hint of bourbon. Tastes of semi-sweet chocolate, sweet raspberries, very mild tart raspberries, bourbon, vanilla, oak, sweet malts and caramel. Medium bodied for the style, lightly carbonated, creamy mouth feel.

Sweet aroma, with chocolate and raspberries. Hints of burbon. Taste is full body, very sweet. Bitter chocolate and raspberry with a nice warm burbon finish, the barrel is very upfront but balanced well. Look is dark, no light lacing is nice keeps aroma well throughout the glass.

12oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 12.99. Bottled 7/27/18. Served in an Avery snifter. Enjoyed 11/4/18.

Pours oil black with a generous cap of large, loose mocha bubbles. The liquid itself looks beautiful but a there are a few disconcerting chunks that detract from the appearance.

Smells of bourbon vanilla, cocoa, berries, roast and caramel.

Flavors of boozey raspberry fudge, bourbon, heavily kilned malt, cooked sugar, oaky vanilla, caramel and a good bit of booze.

Full, rich body with a few unfortunate globs and some soft, velvety carbonation. Notes of bourbon- doused raspberry truffle lingers in the finish.

Avery delivers another delicious high octane barrel aged stout. Raspberry Truffale is fantastic in pretty much every aspect except for those semi solid particulate that float on the top. Despite those mildly troubling floaties I might be procure another bottle or two because I did find it quite tasty. It’s nothing a bit of cheese cloth and a strainer can’t fix.

Wow what a dessert beer! Decadent, sweet, balancing depth, smooth, and deeply rich. Viscous black with hints of brown, liquid cake. Basically bourbon county with a raspberry puree added and dark chocolate amped up in the taste, amazing. The smell had less bourbon in it than taste, giving the raspberry and chocolate sole control, but still very inviting. Could use a little more bourbon barrel, but otherwise a delicious dessert! The wife loved it too

Okay have to give this a lower score on the pour because brownish surface debris conspicuously floating in my stout glass doesn’t look at all appealing. This is all after carefully popping the cap and watching about an ounce of it shoot all over the counter. Is this normal?
Smell is raspberry and bourbon barrel, oh and ample booze.
Taste makes up for the aforementioned mess: A very tasty big dessert stout with an absolutely delicious raspberry cheescake flavor.
Feel is medium-thick and mildly chewy, stopping short of being a sticky beast.
While it looks borderline horrible, I get such sweet raspberry-bourbon flavor from this with each sip, tart cherries, lingering and tempting. Bottle indicates July.

A 12oz bottle with a bottled on date of July 27,2018

L - Rich dark chocolate. 1 finger of tan head, and cocoa left all over the glass

S - Cocoa and bourbon. So tasty!

T - Rich chocolate up front dominates, and then the smooth boozy bourbon kicks in. Alcohol well hidden, but not the heat. Raspberries are very subtle but present, but smooth out the bourbon. Well balanced, and so tasty!

F - Rich, full body, and creamy. Like drinking rich chocolate

O - This beer cannot really get any better.
