Black, a light behind it could not shine through, small head that faded to a ring. Smell of raspberry and chocolate. Tasted rich consistent to the smell, perfect for warming up with in cold weather. A little tart while holding in the mouth. Overall a nice drink for a cold Pennsylvania evening

2021 Release

Appearance: Very dark brown bordering on black with purple undertones. The beer has a modest sized dark beige head, that also has some purple undertones which faded fairly quickly to a nice ring. Nice looking Imperial Stout and the purple undertones are a nice touch..

Smell: Prominent raspberries, moderate Bourbon aromas and brown sugar aromas, and mild roasted malts/coffee aromas. The beer has a good nose featuring the raspberries.

Taste: The palate features raspberries, moderate bourbon notes, modest chocolate and roasted malt notes. The taste profile is nicely balanced and while the raspberries are very apparent all the flavor elements work well together. The beer starts off fairly sweet but dries up a bit. The beer has a mild alcohol presence for the listed 14.56% ABV.

Mouth-feel: On the heavy side of medium bodied with a moderate level of carbonation that results in a nice mouthfeel for this beer.

Overall: Another well done Bottle Logic stout. The taste profile nicely balances all the flavor elements resulting in a very cohesive taste profile. Very nice.

Great mouthfeel and body. This beer is a real treat with a nice fruit forward flavor balanced by slight bitter and bourbon notes.

Best Raspberry stout around. There are a few different batches, some more Raspberry while others have more barrel. Ymmv.

Best fresh witjin a year or so. Not for many years.

Very satisfying.

Pours dark red. Sweet and bourbon to the nose. Raspberry upfront then fades to bourbon. Not very bitter. Smooth with a little boozy finish. Tried the 2019 and 2020 vintages. Preferred 2019.

2018 bottle opened in 2021. Pours pitch black with little head. Nose is dominated by chocolate and raspberries - no complaint. I'm trying hard to find other notes on the nose, but I think I would be making things up if I said I could smell other things. I keep going back and it's chocolate and raspberries - maybe raspberries dipped in chocolate? The taste is pretty insane. Again, I'm getting the chocolate and raspberries, but I'm getting more. cherries, brown sugar, bourbon, toffee, blackberries, oak, and some nice hard fruit candy. Sweet is the overall theme, but definitely not too sweet. This is just a lovely drink with a thick and creamy mouthfeel. No alcohol is detectable.
