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, it’s easy to become obsessed with catching this unique, monstrously flavorful stout, but be warned... you may need a bigger glass.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark ruby brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate and berry aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet toasted malt and fruit flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. My expectations where met.

Tap at Max’s. Pours black with a small, fizzy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, roast and coffee malt, prunes, dates and light fruity hops. Flavor is rich dark chocolate, light roast and coffee notes, dates, oak, light bitterness that seems like it would be heavier if the thick and chewey malt were less. Finish is lightly sweet then dry. Full body, low warmth and carbonation.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle… Pours black with a small, creamy, beige head. The bouquet offers a decadent swirl of milk chocolate, espresso, black cherry and raspberry jam. Full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and tickling carbonation. The flavor is roasty, burnt and fruity – raspberry, dark chocolate and a splash of espresso. Finishes warming and chocolaty.

22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is dark chocolate, roasted malts, raspberry and blackberry; actually pretty nice as it warmed. The flavor has dark chocolate, roasted malts that show a hint of char, and a nice raspberry fruitiness. Mouth feel is softer with a medium body and slightly dry finish.

TheBeerGod (5229) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle. Black with a short, foamy tan head. Aroma is very chocolatey with lots of berry notes, but I can’t necessarily discern raspberry. Plus there is plenty of roasted malt and flavored coffee. Taste bring chocolate covered raspberries, tart berries, roasted malt and coffee notes. Body is medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more raspberries, dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. Tasty!

JaBier (4854) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Strange plasticky aroma with some chocolate, roast and raspberry. Malty and chocolatey flavor with raspberry in the finish.

Butters (3747) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 I liked this one better than the regular naked fish. The raspberry didn’t come off as quite so ’fake’ this time. Nice brown pour with fair tan head. Good chocolate and raspberry aromas and flavors. Not overly sweet which is always a good thing. Smooth, almost silky on the tongue. Very tasty indeed! Just had this paired with some chocolate peanut butter ice cream. It was one of the best pairings I had in my whole life. the peanut butter absolutely PERFECTLY complimented and highlighted the wonderful raspberry and rich chocolate in this beer
