Served in a tasting glass the Firestone Walker Beer Fest. From notes. Reviewed 1 June 2013.

Weird and sour, it reminds of the Bruery's Tart of Darkness. Subtle chocolate is more sweet than bitter and well-hidden. All in all, an interesting effort that I'd glad was brewed, even if I wouldn't have it often.

On tap at the 2013 Firestone Walker Invitational held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Billed as an imperial chocolate stout with raspberries and blackberries in bourbon barrels.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and berry aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour berry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but smells a lot better and doesn't really display any distinct bourbon barrel characteristics in my opinion.
