Looks like a great dessert beer...but you are missing the most important part. How did it turn out?!

I've actually thought about using Chambord in a recipe before. I figured the alcohol would settle to the bottom and not be absorbed into the beer completely. Am I wrong?

It turned out great. The Chambord gave it just a hint of raspberry which is exactly what I wanted. My first batch of it has already been consumed (quickly I might add), but I'll definitely be doing a second batch of it again in the very near future.

The Chambord seemed to mix just fine when I racked the beer on top of it. Just like when adding priming sugar, make sure you put the Chambord infusion in the bottom and let the beer swirl as it siphons into the carboy.

I did this recipe except couldn't find cheap vanilla beans so I substituted a few ounces of vanilla bean extract. Turned out great so far (having a half pint only a few days after kegging it, couldn't help myself).

I'd like to attempt my first sour soon and thought maybe this recipe might be a good candidate to tweak into a sour. I really enjoy Jolly Pumpkin sours, and think that a stout with some fruit mixed with the sour and funk, would make for a nice experiment.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
