Ferris (4342) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Bootle - Raspberry syrup and bitter chocolate. Jet black with decent brown head. Soured dark malts with the raspberry peaks through. A nice tartness in the finish makes this quite nice.

Great beer bought at Aakjærs, Esbjerg. Great looking beer with a great taste! A very masculine beer! Dark as the North Sea Oil!

CraftBeerNick (903) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle at home, 20th September 2013. Pours way too fizzy for a stout, great big head, aroma is slightly metallic and raspberry. Taste is metallic, too much raspberry. An ugly drink, disappointing

Idiosynkrasie (3855) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 13, 2013
500ml bottle [7.5% abv]. Opaque dark brown colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Intense raspberry aroma, dark malty background. Taste has initially full raspberry flavour, sweet and tart, later the malty background gains more weight with hints of dark chocolate and a touch of roast. Good.

laiti (5704) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013
50 cl bottle @ wPBF, BBE 25.10.2013
Aroma is somewhat tart with lots of raspberries. Also some slight roasted notes. Flavour has lots of somewhat tart raspberries, some malty notes and quite nothing else. Perhaps some syrupy notes here. Way too much raspberries here – hard to finish even the one fifth of the bottle. The combination of tartness and roastiness is just too much.
