3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brewgrass 2012 - pours black into the glass, with the deepest of ruby-mahogany fringes. The nose is of cigar tobacco, dark esters, and sours. Favors are derivative of raspberries, sour and estery, with slight notes of cocoa, smoke, tobacco leaves, and finishing with a sour close. The finish is again sour and medium-lingering. The mouthfeel is lightly active for a medium bodied estery brew; substantial on the palate. Nice fruit offering here, with many smoked complexities rearing their heads after the pull has commenced.

Found in old notes before I tossed them, RBSG 2010 - Berry smell, the flavor is big on the fruit with plenty of berries, a little roasted character, a medium body, and it has a sour character to it. Okay.

12 oz bottle. MUCH better on tap. Raspberry aroma but of an unpleasant sour aroma too. Strong chocolate malt flavor pairs well with raspberries. Head retention needs improvement.

This is a really interesting beer. Not what I expected at all. Has the aroma and palate of a raspberry port wine; a little harsh in smell and on the palate, but in an intriguing way. Iím not a fan of fruit beers, but Iím glad I tried that one...

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. Pours dark brown. Spicy yeast and a little bit of the berries stood out. A pretty good beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 8/30/12 - Also had the BBA draft at Bottle revolution. adds a nice bourbon taste while drowning out the raspberry. Very nice addition
Not much aroma from this draft. Black in color brown head. I can see some hint if red in the outer edge of the lacing. This tastes great just hard for me to describe. Mild coffee with a hint of sweetness at the finish but I donít pick out the raspberries. Body is full and the texture is creamy and is awesome. Love this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on draft at Thirsty Monk South. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium sized creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate and berries. The taste is roasted malts, nutty notes, chocolate, herbal hops and mild berries in the finish. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Opaque black with a rim head and no lace. Bitter chocolate shows early, persisting to the end; the finish produces a light splash of fruit juice, perhaps raspberry. Good, but not great.
