3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is deep cola with two fingers of quickly dissipating kaki head. Nose is raspberries, semi-sweet chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malt and chocolate up front that quickly subsides to let the semi-dry raspberries kick in and do their thing. The finish is a three way that lingers on in a slightly dry, yet still sweet fashion. The body is surprisingly light for chocolate stout. This is a nice beer, though nothing stellar, that is would make a solid staple beer to drink over and over. It is also quite sessionable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mari’s. I was surprised that this adds chocolate, raspberry coffee rather than chocolate, raspberries, and coffee. Pours black, a bit thin, and has minimal head kicking up. The aroma has a nice milk chocolate, light raspberry, and a good bit of coffee. The taste has tart raspberry at the forefront, some roasty notes behind, and only a touch of coffee, chocolate, and almost a smoke. Palate is on the thin side. This isn’t a killer brew to me but I can enjoy this 8 ounces.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured normal stout color with small weak head. Aroma starts off pure coffee bean then comes some rasberry and slight chocolate notes. Creamy texture. Medium light body for a stout. Light bitter, Light sweet. Just slightly chaulky. A bit watery. Pretty much roasted dark malt and coffee in the taste. Decent stuff.

DuClaw Chocolate Raspberry Stout:
A little too carbonated and not enough head. The flavors were good, but far too subtle. Seemed watered down.

On draft at the Porch Restaurant, Myerstown, PA for the ELCO class of 1983 30th HS reunion. This is a perfect desert beer. Rich semi-sweet chocolate raspberry is my choice in lieu of cake.
