I happened to see the local bottle shop received Founder’s Big Lushious and figured I better see what was up with this chocolate raspberry stout. The 7.8% ABV beer was not at all what I was expecting, but so darn tasty I immediately wanted more. Most of the time raspberry flavor is an afterthought, but in this one it is front and center and with a sublime chocolate character and enough sweetness to keep it all tied in a nice bundle I’d like to have this one again. I could see some who may say the sweetness was a bit much, but for me it was magical. So if you happen to see a bottle, be sure to grab it. You might want to think of this as a dessert beer, but I like think of it as delicious.
