3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Growlerís in the NoDa neighborhood of Charlotte. Canít believe this is listed as a raspberry beers. Pours like a stout. Dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Aromas of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavors of roasted malts, chocolate, little coffee, and maybe a bit of fruit. Finishes dry and roasty. Solid stout imo.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice beer. One of the better Big Boss beers. $3 draft at leesville taproom is a nice deal. I dont get any Belgian qualities out of this...just a stout w/ slight raspberry finish. I would guess they used an american ale yeast vs. a belgian yeast but what do I know. No raspberry in the nose just stouty maltyness. Very easy to drink, nice pour on draft.
