22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours deep black in color with a one-finger foamy khaki head that reduces to leave just a thin ring around the edge

S- bold notes of fresh pressed raspberries jump from the glass, followed by a big coconut note, similar to that in Last Snow. Undertones of chocolate truffles, vanilla and a hint of oaky bourbon

T- tart initially with lots of raspberries; raspberry jam, raspberry puree. Mid-palate brings out notes of fresh coconut and vanilla cream. The finish gives notes of raspberry ice cream, chocolate and just a hint of bourbon barrel. Lingers of raspberries

M- medium body with moderate-low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that turns into a slightly creamy finish

O- raspberry is the showcase, with bold notes throughout, complimented nicely by the coconut, could have used a bit more barrel influence

Pours a dark black with a nice tan head. Has an aroma of coconut, vanilla, and chocolate. Tastes much like it smells with a nice addition of raspberry. Feels nice and thick, without being overpowering. Overall a great beer with a lot of interesting things going on. Would definitely drink again.

Super dark. Zero head. Tons of coconut aroma. I was shocked by the amount of raspberry flavor. Overall, really good.

4 oz pour on tap

A: very dark body no light getting through this thing very little head

S: good bit of coconut and vanilla can't pick up any berries

T: coconut more of the berry taste I wouldn't have guessed it was raspberry though nice bit of sweetness

M: a touch creamy but again fairly watery I don't get why their beers are so thin

O: not a bad beer but not a lot of the stout shines through. Basically just a lot of coconut sweetness and berry flavor

Black as night, thick foamy tan head. Smell is heavy coconut, light raspberry, vanilla, chocolate, coffee. Taste is heavy coconut and vanilla with a light raspberry, chocolate and coffee. Raspberry is great, does not taste medicinal, very fresh.

Funky buddha dread pirate Roberts imperial stout
On tap at the Oakland Park brewery

IS with vanilla, cocoa, raspberries and coconut

Jet black, small light tan head. Aroma is as advertised; cocoa, raspberry and coconut. Great aroma. Taste is a bit of a let down as raspberry dominates. Some cocoa and roasty malt as well. Drinkability is good but not great. Overall, a good beer but considering the expectations I have for funky buddha a bit of a disappointment.

On tap at Churchville Inn.

Solid black pour with a firm tan head, good retention and lacing. Roasty malt aroma, dark chocolate and some berry sweetness. From the description, I guess I was expecting something along the lines of Last Snow with raspberries, but it wasn't quite that. This was still a good stout though, just basically a raspberry stout...and usually I find that fruited stouts generally don't work for me. Roasty dark malts and dark chocolate, coffee bitterness, followed by sweet raspberry, but also a something vegetal in there that reminded me of celery? There was really no coconut detected, but maybe the fruit overpowered it. Falls short of Last Snow, but then again most beers in the world do. Still good overall.
