Strong chocolate malt smell. Maybe a hint of fruit on the nose but cocoa dominates the experience. Sharp bitter cocoa flavor with slight lingering raspberry. Pretty quick body with not a ton of complexity. lacks a large punch. Not too bad. Smooth chocolate flavors. Raspberry is nice and not overpowering.

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

HighlanderOne (1041) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2015
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.

emacgee (4208) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2015
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.

LinusStick (2911) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2015
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

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark (almost black) brown with a small tan head. Aroma is mostly raspberries, malts and chocolate. Taste consistent, raspberry, chocolate some roasted notes and a bit of coffee; quite tasty. Enjoyable beer easy to drink, very good.

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

Dark dark brown with lacy rimming beige head; aroma is my sweet; flav is rich upfront with peanutty notes; feels light to medium with some fizz; finishes sweet and tangy

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

bubbleflubber (1893) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2014
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 can’t 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.

12oz bottle. Poured a brown color with a small sized tan head. Chocolate, raaspberries, and some roastiness.
