bomber from GSO. Light but apparent raspberry flavor. Porter base is a little weak and falls too much to the background. There is a bit of a roasty malt aspect to it. Bit of a chocolate creaminess later in the palate as well. Finish is lightly sweet.

DrSilverworm (8542) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2015
4oz pour. Mostly clear, orange red brown color. Thin off-white head. Leaves great, thicker lace. Great raspberry and dark chocolate aroma. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet taste. Medium body, to medium-plus. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light dry finish --- though mostly slick. A solid, hoppy belgian darker pale ale.

Brown color. Tan head. Pretty bad. Sour, astringent, chalky, funky. Not really good at all.

Pint at Bottle Revolution RDU. Good aroma sweet, chocolate stronger, raspberry milder. Dark orange brown color good head and lace. Sweet flavor. Medium body creamy smooth mouthfeel sweet finish. It’s nice. Nice borderline session brew. Like the flavor little more than aroma, but not by much. Good solid, but not a wow beer either

GTAEgeek (1470) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2014
22 oz bottle shared by Drew at Ale Alpharetta. Dark brown, with a little ruby hue and a thin head. The aroma is strong, medicinal raspberries, chocolate, and chalk. Very sweet and sugary, with a little fruity tartness. Light to medium body, watery and astringent. Overall, this is like a weak porter with syrup added. Meh.

Suttree (5543) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap at the Merrimon location. This illustrates the importance of a comma. "Love, Ninja" sound like a sign off on a letter from a Ninja. "Love Ninja", on the other hand sounds like an amorous assassin - once you know he’s there, it’s too late. On the other hand, though, "Amorous Assassin" is a pretty good name for a beer. Anyway, this is a good beer, like a chocolate covered raspberry with a coffee chaser.
