750 at Jester King with Taylor Stephen and Dina. Pours black with smaller cream brown head. Aroma is authentic raspberry, smooth roasted malt that serves as a base for the beer instead of the main attraction. Taste is nice smooth huge full bodied malt, mild cocoa, big raspberry and almost cherry. Such a great example of the raspberry stout style, but just not my favorite style.

Bottle at Jester King with Friends. Pour is deep black, viscous appearance with a frothy brown head and great lacing. Chocolate dipped raspberries, deep cocoa, roasted malt, graham crackers, vanilla, and red berries in the aroma. Taste is dark rich chocolate, tangy berries, roasty, vanilla beans, coffe grounds, light smoke, and strawberry skins with a tangy finish. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Really nice decadent stout. Like chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2015 Bottle thanks to T $. Nose is fruity. Pitch black pour with minimal head. Taste is a fruity explosion but slightly astringent. Overall a very nice beer but seems a bit overdone. Semi sweet and a touch sticky on the lips. Had again a year later. Fruitiness is still there and very complimentary, not overdone. No astringency and a great beer still, maybe better than fresh.

DrewFace (944) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle share thanks to T$. Pours a deep dark nearly black color with thin brown head. Big fruit raspberry aroma, chocolately, light barrel notes, roasty and a hint of smoke. Huge fruity flavor, lots of roasty character,not much barrel character, overpowered by raspberry. Some high boost uh the finish.

2-4 ounce bottle pour at SAVOR’s Friday night session during the Cigar City and Hardywood salon. Pours black with nice tan head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, toffee, roast. Tasting notes of Port, raspberries, chocolate, caramel, toffee, dark fruit. Full body with a dry finish. Reminded me of a chocolate covered raspberry, tasty.

@ The Lets do a Chris O tasting. Pours black very thin off white head. Nose of a warm raspberry pie laced with licorice. Taste wise imagine red wine and bacon allowed to reduce down in a stock pot. Excellent. Does not taste like its 11% ,hides the alcohol really well.
