In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Avery Raspberry Truffale

Aroma: “Roasted malt, quite boozy, some semisweet chocolate, slight vanilla and caramel. Slight sweet licorice. Noticeable raspberry aroma behind the booze.”

Flavor: “Very sweet up front. Chocolate, caramel, and dark-fruit sweetness. The finish is medium sweet, but not cloying. A touch of bourbon corn richness. Some nice vanilla notes from the barrel on the finish.”

Overall: “Quite boozy, but well-

balanced; some may find it too sweet overall. Chocolaty, roasty, and slightly spicy. The barrel adds a nice spice and warmth on the finish. Distinct warmth with some nice complexity of flavors that make for a solid fireside sipper. A few ounces go a long way!”
