Tastes like a raspberry truffle. Once it warms, the vanilla and whiskey barrel come to the front. But kinda odd, I got 2 bottles and the second tasted totally different, more like an umami brown ale with no barrel character, rating is for the first which was awesome
The raspberries and the vanilla really stand out. Only getting a hint of cinnamon and barrel. 🥃🍻
This isn't worth the label and bottle its shipped in
Holy raspberries, Batman!
Have with a bite of chocolate. So good
Have the people rating this 4 star, ever had good beer?
Chocolate Covered Raspberry, Oaky Vanillins, Cinnamon, Boozy but not “Hot”
Raspberry forward, then get vanilla and whiskey.
A bit disappointing, just got the cocoa
Chocolate covered raspberries soaked in bourbon and dusted with cinnamon powder. Best way I could describe it. Would probably be wonderful fireside on a deep winter night.
Strong stout with some sour in the backend
Raspberry up front that never quite let's go. Some vanilla and spiciness at the end but nothing of note
Rainbow of flavors: bourbon hits hard up front, followed by chocolate, then sweet raspberry that almost comes through as cherry, followed by vanilla, coffee and oak. Lingering flavor like chocolate covered cherries sticks forever. Great combination.
Chocolaty stout with tart raspberry aftertaste. Vanilla rounds it out smoothly. Can’t quite catch the cinnamon tho. Not complaining
Great aroma reminiscent of a raspberry pie using dark brown sugar. The flavors are amazingly layered (appropriately named, indeed). Sweet and slightly tart raspberries heighten and lift the traditionally heavy aspects of a stout. The bitterness gets close to the Russian Imperial Stout apex of almost being salty like a soy sauce, but the cinnamon gives it an almost sulfur aspect coupled with the sweetness of the raspberries making it taste like pomegranate molasses. Lots of heavy brewed flavors here, but fantastically done. The finish is intensely vanilla on all aspects, but very enjoyable. Just an astounding beer all around.
It’s...weird. I don’t hate it but I don’t like it either. Doesn’t taste like a stout at all. Really only get what tastes like white chocolate raspberries.
Light berry, but nice
UNBELIEVABLE! SO SOOOOOOOO GOOD. it was exactly how I wanted this to be (very solid rich stout with a very natural raspberry taste) and I will buy anything this brewery puts up on Tavour
Warms you up from the inside. Raspberry-forward, with strong hints of bourbon first, then vanilla, and finally mellowing out into a mouth-coating chocolate aftertaste. That’ll do, pig!
Nose is absolutely glorious, jammy fruit mixed with velvety chocolate and charred oak. It coats the mouth and lingers with the barrel flavors, leaving a touch of heat that warms as it goes down. Totally amazing.
