Pours a deep opaque chocolaty brown with a fairly thick tan head. Tempting aroma is strongly of chocolate, with hints of raspberries, roast coffee and sweetness. Flavor is chocolaty and malty with a hint of raspberry and hops, and a sweet touch. Texture is smooth, edgy, and just a little thin.

Draft. Dark, blackish-ruby color. A bit opaque. Thin, tan head. Aroma of raspberry and chocolate. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Flavor is really nice. The raspberries provide a nice tartness that is balanced by the hints of cocoa. Finish is clean and dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Deep, dark brown body with some ruby-hued tones and a thin, off-white head.
Smell: Sharply tart scent of raspberries overlaying a subdued dark maltiness. The chocolate component, even upon warming, doesn’t develop beyond a mild note of chocolate powder.
Taste: Lightly sweet dark malts with a touch of roasted grains. Tart raspberry juice. Mild chocolate taste that arises somewhat upon warming. Very mild bitterness. Very minute tastes of roast and fruit on the dry, relatively clean finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A decent fruit beer, but it does leave you wanting for more raspberries and more chocolate.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was a bit of a disappointment. The color was rich and dark and the aroma was fresh raspberries. The flavor was unfortunately thinner than expected. Not a bad beer, just not the one I expected from the description.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a nut brown with a foamy head. Big aroma of raspberry. Musty flavor with bitter chocolate and indeterminate fruit. Slightly weird salty finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is one of my least favorite beers at 5 seasons. It’s very tart and acidic in the nose, but than follows through into a lackluster malt background, that has some sweet chocolate notes along with some dried raspberry.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with a pinkish accent. The aroma and palate are remarkably similar - raspberry and chocolate. Pretty good, given the concept.
