COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With double the rich dark chocolate and raspberry aroma and flavors of our Naked Fish stout, and an exquisitely dry, chocolatey finish from the addition of chocolate during conditioning, itís easy to become obsessed with catching this unique, monstrously flavorful stout, but be warned... you may need a bigger glass.

ChainGangGuy (4755) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2016
12 ounce bottle - Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina. Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a small, light tan-hued head. Smell: Moderate roast suggesting day-old coffee, low-grade chocolate. Not really finding any raspberry. Probably for the best, though there is an odd, slightly vegetal undertone in the nose. Taste: A sweetish, cola-like taste and a bit tangy. Though a little jumped from the regular NF, itís basically the same mild roastiness, lifeless chocolate. Slight dingy berry flavor, though it doesnít really express itself well as something youíd call raspberry. Tangy, acidic finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-low carbonation. Overall: Itís just not good and may even be a slight step down from the standard version.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium sized tan head. Aroma of chocolate & raspberry. Flavor was lightly sweet with dark chocolate, raspberry fruitiness and light roast

chinchill (4113) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2016
12 oz bottle; bottled on 28 Dec. 2015. Faint dark malts, sweet chocolate and vegetative aromas with more prominent raspberry aroma. Flavor: Quite a bit of raspberry and chocolate but not so much as to be objectionable or to entirely mask the dark malts. The level of raspberry clearly exceeds the other components. Still some faint vegetative notes but better than the aroma suggests. Mildly sweet bitter-sweet mix.

altonbrownd (5415) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Nice dark body with medium head. Nose is chocoalte floral, fruits. Taste is chocolate and berries. Alcy. but too sweet and fruity in my opinion. Okay.

joejames (464) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle to shaker glass, pours black with red hues under strong light. One finger quick light tan head. Decent lacing and good retention. Aroma of dark chocolate. Taste is mainly sweet, lightly bitter. Medium to full bodied, adequate carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes long and bittersweet.. Tasting notes of dark roasted malt, slight raspberry, dark chocolate, oak and vanilla. This is a very well made, palatable Imperial Stout that doesnít go overboard with the fruit.

cheap (5216) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 14, 2016
For an impy stout, this was better than expected. Tap bocktown. Big and black with a moose head. Has a slight welcomed perfume on the olfactory in addition to the normal impy stout aromas. Smoother than most on the palate. Some of that sweet perfume comes thru on the palate as well. Flat and mouthcoating as wilt most impy stouts but it possesses a smoothness that gives this style a rather inkling of acceptability. Yes, I think its a little more civilized than most rude impy stouts, it hides its volatile 8% rather well.

b33r (835) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Dark black color with thin light brown head. Aroma and flavor have much stronger chocolate and raspberry notes in this than in the regular Naked Fish. Itís much bolder and actually pretty good.

Nephilium (1660) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Chocolate aroma, with a hint of raspberry. Pours an opaque black with a tight tan head. The raspberry comes through much more in the flavor, balancing nicely with the chocolate notes. Thereís a touch of alcohol heat thatís present in the finish, but itís a subdued heat. Very nice sipping beer on a cold winter night.
