COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gourmet chocolate raspberry coffee is used in the brewing process to achieve this unique flavor and aroma. With a rich dark color this medium bodied stout finishes fairly dry with subtle hints of chocolate, coffee and raspberry flavors.

Pours deep and dark with a bit of garnet, and smallish mocha that reduces quickly to skim. Great aroma, chocolate and raspberries, but on the palate, the ashy taste of coffee grounds is the immediate impression. After five minutes or so, the berries fight back, though not enough to establish sweetness. Finish is bitter, not distressingly so, but more coffee dregs. As occasionally happens with this brewery, this seems like a good concept haphazardly executed. I’m fine with one, but I’m not going for a second.

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a clear brown with a gaseous head of beige foam. The aroma has ashy, roasty, dry coffee. The taste is initially ashy bitterness, but as the flavor a settle on the tongue, I am able to taste more of the berry sweetness. Lighter bodied stout. Medium carbonation.

This is one big black looken beer, had it at bowsers. Decent head fades rapidly. Cant taste any raspberry in this. The coffee is big and in there but to call this a fruit beer is misleading. Just a really good coffee flavored stout. Seems like more than the 4% listed here. Smell is big coffee aroma. Has lots of personality from beginning to end. But, fer sure its not a fruit beer. Just a simple dry coffee stout.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is raspberry, roast, and chocolate. Medium mouth nice roast, chocolate covered raspberries, very sweet, light bitterness in finish. Good.

Smells of coffee and dark chocolate with a bit of raspberry. Taste is similar but not sweet at all. Not bad at all. Flavors are a bit subdued if anything. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle pour. Aroma of chocolate raspberry candy. Stout black with a trace of tan head. Tasting dark chocolate, raspberry, coffee, hops, cola. Slightly oily feel. Pretty good.

Dark pour with an opaque brown on the edges. One finger of tan head. A light earthy malt note shows with a roasty quality and touch of raspberry. Flavor is fine, some raspberry shows with a tannic character and chocolate.

Delicious and unique beer. Love chocolate and raspberry and the beer delivered. Aroma was nice. Raspberry is the main aroma with a nice chocolate undertone. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan film for a head. Taste was very full and complex for such a low ABV beer. Dark chocolate in the beginning, then strong carbonation cleared the palate and strong raspberry flavors seemed to come up from the throat like Halls commercials say. Nice strong carbonation. Lots of flavor for this ABV
