Pours pitch black, like you'd expect with a stout; a 1 inch head dwindles very slowly as you drink. Despite the age (11-2014), it's still quite boozy, and it's first noticed on the nose, but then on the tastbuds. A nice subtle raspberry fruitiness attempts to override the heat of the bourbon however, making this a nice dessert beer. I'd definitely drink this again.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fresh raspberry with black chocolate notes and some nice bourbon notes. Taste is a nice mix of fresh raspberry notes with some black chocolate notes and some bourbon and vanilla notes with light woody notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture. Greta beer with nice balance of flavours which raspberry providing an extra level of complexity to this beer. Wish this was available to me on a regular basis.
