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.

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

Kind of looks like a A&W root beer. I can smell the aroma a mile away. Think on the palate. but taste good though. well balanced not too bitter

From 12oz bottle. Pours dark with slight tan head. Raspberry does dominate the aroma and aftertaste. Hard pressed to find any chocolate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours the deepest ruby, almost opaque, with a suds head that leaves light lacing. The nose is of roasts and bittersweet chocolates. Flavors of dry roasted coffee, bitter chocolates and hints at raspberry essence. The finish is of coffee. I canít see how this is labeled a "fruit beer" instead of a stout, so I will assume a miscategorization. The medium-full body and nice roasted coffee palate make for a decent fruity, dry stout here. Nice.

Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown almost black color with a thin tan head. Aroma is chocolate, raspberry, burnt malts, roasted coffee. Flavor is mostly burnt malts and light chocolate, not much fruity character. Medium body with a lingering burnt bitterness. Interesting. Nothing special.

Bottled December 26, 2013.
Appearance: In the glass the body appears a deep opaque chestnut, but through the light I can see garnet edges, but not through the center. A short tan head sits on top.
Aroma: Initially I get a prominent roasted coffee aroma with a backing of chocolate and a hint of sweet artificial raspberry. As it warms the aroma exhibits a sort of stale presence, it reminds me of something that I canít put my finger on. Maybe 4 months is too long for this to be on the shelf? If so it should be draft only.
Taste: The flavor isnít very sweet like Iíd imagined, hints of coffee with sort of stale malts underlying it. The finish shows a little chocolate and a hint of raspberry. Not as whacky as Iíd imagined. This would likely be better fresher.
Palate: Light-medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Nice try, but if your beer canít handle a 4 month shelf life and doesnít move fast enough then it should probably be tap only. I may revisit this next year, but only if I feel intrigued enough to.
