Color is dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is definitely raspberry along with some roasted malt and chocolate. The raspberry is still strong on the taste, but much more balanced with the other flavors of chocolate, anise, and some booze. Body is full and creamy. Overall, a very good beer.

22oz bottle poured into four little samplers.

Pours black, still, with a ring of tan head. Smell is raspberries, roasty, some chocolate, plenty of alcohol.

Taste is fruity, raspberry, alcohol, bourbon. Mouthfeel is smooth and nice.

Served on tap at the Omega Point release party. I found the raspberry to be unpleasantly overpowering, beyond a Backyard Rye, but otherwise an excellent brew.

Too sweet. Funny aftertaste. Razz tastes fake.

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!
