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.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2005 Draft - 2005 - DuClaw, Arundel Mills - Strong nose of fresh raspberries, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Almost smelled like a chocolate covered raspberry. Coffee flavor was well hidden. Typical stout, very dark, black, hint of purple when the light hit it the right way. It was like having beer for dessert. Don’t have to be a stout lover to enjoy this beer. Hat’s off Jim.

This beer is made with coffe from California. It’s a Chocolate Raspberry coffee which they get in specifically for this beer. Upon visiting the brewery I sampled the coffee and it really lends a great impression to the beer. It starts off a bit dry and pours with a great amount of head. The stout doesn’t have a lot of aroma per say but combining a roast character and the coffee make for a terriffic beer. I can easily drink a growler of this in a sitting and go back for more.

From the Tap, DuClaw Berwery, Baltimore MD, As a person who hates coffee, this beer was Very Good. Because of my dislike for coffee stouts and porter tend to fall of my beer options.... but wne i saw a chocolate Raspberry beer had to try and i must say much better then i would have guessed.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2005 Lighter side of black, thin tan head. Rich nose of chocolate raspberry coffee and cream, with a nice underlying roasty theme to it all. Flavor is one in the same, never sweet, and still gets a slight hop bitterness at the very end. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roasted coffee finish. If such a thing....a great session dessert beer....

Bottle shared by Bruce, thanks for the opportunity! Pours a solid black color with a smallish tan head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of caramel chocolate, coffee, and a hint of berries. The flavor is a wow out of this world. Creamy chocolate covered raspberries with a hint of caramel and earth. This is like drinking a valentines day fruited chocolate. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a creamy silky mouthfeel. This beer wowed me! Great fruited stout that I enjoyed the hell out of.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2009 Draft @ Bel Air location May 2008. Very flavorful and unique. Strong dose of of raspberry and coffee plus bitter, roasted malt notes underneath. Nitro pour is velvety smooth. Not much chocolate flavor. Could have a fuller body, but still a very good beer.

The first beer release party I enjoyed with DuClaw and definately a suprise. A stout beer with clear chocolate and raspberry tones that are only filled with a medium body. Drink it as dessert or all night long. Brought home a growler and enjoyed it in 24 hours... never had a brew like it and I’m looking forward to next February to see if it comes back.
