This one pours an opaque raisin color with crimson highlights, and densely creamy beige lid. Nice lacing does not go un-noticed.
The nose brings big barreled oak to the table, balanced by raisins, elegant raspberries, and bittersweet chocolate. Some musky, earthy tobacco-like hop scents balance out the oak barrel and fruits nicely.
A nice medium body full of softly fresh, creamy carbonation, and a flowing smoothness. The taste is very nice as well. Sweet and chocolatey with bitter cocoa. Dark fruits plums and raisins show up, but raspberry stands above all other fruits while not becoming overbearing on the flavor as a whole. Of course currents of oak barrels stream throughout along with pleasantly sweet vanilla.
I really liked this one a lot. The raspberry is an elegant accompaniment to an already solid brew, while remaining far from overbearing. I would definitely recommend checking this one out if you are in the area.
