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.

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.

BOD 12/29/15. Pours pitch black. Very good head volume and lacing, outstanding retention. Outstanding nose of bright raspberry over light chocolate, a bit of roast and a touch of char. Heavy light body that is smooth with a hint of creaminess. Normal carbonation level with a fairly good balance with the body. Effervescence is mild mid-palate and closes with a nice prickly finish. The flavor profile is good, but lacks intensity. It begins with a subtle coffee that flows into a light roast in the middle. Chocolate hints at being present, but you have to search for it. Raspberry makes a light appearance as the finish approaches. The finish is a slow fade of light coffee.

Bottle pour opaque black with large tan head. Nose big raspberry, chocolate covered fruit, light roast. Taste light powder chocolate, then raspberries. Nicer fruit flavors instead of cough syrup. Fruit and chocolate finish.

on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black color, tan head that drops to a thin cover, dots and spots of lace. Taste is dark malt that adds light carbonation, along with chocolate and raspberry in the swallow, moving from there to a long sweet finish that holds on to the chocolate and raspberry. A light brew, but also strikingly good.

Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square, served in a flight. Pours a cloudy dark brown color with amber edges and a small beige head that leaves a lace sheet in the glass along with a ring and an island of film. The primary character here is a chocolate-covered cherry, with toast, tobacco, earth, subtle coffee roast, and raspberry. Light-bodied, with modest carbonation and a dry, smooth mouthfeel that shows a balance between the light fruity tang and faint toasted and roasted malts. Slightly chalky. At first, I didn’t like this and thought something was off. But then the ’chocolate-covered berry’ thing occurred to me, and I guessed that was the intent. Looked it up and it was right! Whew. The menu just said "stout" so I had no guidance. It’s not bad.

12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons). Aroma: Light to moderate raspberry syrup; moderate roasted peanuts; light chocolate. Appearance: Pure black with a foamy mocha head that settles into a thin ring. Flavor: Immediate, but short lived raspberry followed by peanut roast; very light chocolate throughout; the finish is dry and abrupt. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: The roasted peanut thing is just weird here, especially in light of the "coffee" claim made on the label. An experiment worth skipping.

12 ounce bottle. Bottled 12/29/15. Dark pour. Upfront chocolate and raspberry. Thin in the body - but ABV predicts that. Decent.

bottle to mug that poured a dark brown to almost black with light tan head. the original aroma I got was raspberry syrup mixed with roasted malts. with the flavor my nose wasn’t to far off. you get a nice roasted malt flavor with it being a little bit more bitter than what it should be also and bit on the thin side. the raspberry flavor is a nice touch and flavor. the 2 flavor blend well but the bitterness and thinness take away from the overall. but for drinking its pretty good for what it is.

Near black pour with minimal head. Aroma of chocolate stout. Taste brings raspberry to the front. Seems medicinal or chemical taste.
