It was too syrupy for me. The raspberries seemed artificial. Also not of fan of smokey beers and this had a hint of that.

Almost everyone at the tasting agreed that this must be a bad batch or bottle. One of the tasting group members has had many of the previous batches and loved it, and he felt this was WAY off! It could be bottle variation, but I would be very cautious of trading for the '14 vintage of this beer!

Looked good on the pour, but quickly took a bad turn. Slight aroma of roasted malt and faint fruit. No barrel detected. Subtle raspberry in the mid. Awkwardly out of place light mouth feel.

Too sweet. Funny aftertaste. Razz tastes fake.

Appearance: Nice dark black pour with a small beige head, small amount of lacing

Smell: Event horizon + raspberries, and the raspberries seem out of place. Nice notes of malt, oak, coffee, dark chocolate and bourbon

Taste: The Raspberries are dominant but not pleasant or integrated. Very odd mixup. The base beer, minus the berries, has great notes of malt, oak, coffee, bourbon and chocolate.

Mouthfeel - medium/full body and mouthfeel

Overall: I was really looking forward to this one and definitely disappointed, the raspberries just do not play well with this imperial stout.
