On tap. Opaque with a quarter inch of creamy foam. Aromas of cocoa and coffee mingle with traces of funk and berry. Flavors are an excellent blend of the same, with the berry staying in the background. Medium-heavy body is well balanced, has medium-high carbonation and is pretty sessionable.

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins I believe. Pours a deep brown appearance with a thin, dark brown head. Dark berry, raspberry, fruity yeasty, a touch spicy, roasty malty, chocolate, light anise aroma. At first, Iím a bit overwhelmed by a charred, anise, símore flavor but some raspberry does follow. The finish kind of reminds me of a Raspberry Hot Cocoa drink or Raspberry Mocha. A bit thin and a bit odd, but itís not overall that bad. Honestly, Iíve never been a big fan of Belgian stouts, but Iíll drink it.

The aroma is chocolate, light roast, subtle raspberry. The appearance is jet lack, tan head. The flavor is just like the aroma. The finish is chocolate, roasty, pine. Medium/thick in body. Good overall.

Jow (1866) - New York, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Tap art the Stagshead while trying to procrastinate going grocery shopping. Pours jet black with small purplish head. nose is roasty and of cocoa and light fruit. You get hints of raspberryís on palate but not overwhelmingly so. You also get roasted malt, cocoa powder, earth, and wood. nice and not too sweet

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Draught poured at Stagís Head in NYC. Pours pitch black without much head. Aromas of intense raspberries and chocolate. Taste is incredibly smooth and balanced, just lovely. The raspberry comes throughout is not overpowering. Really really like this beer.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Completely black, large beige head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma is very roasty coffee grounds, cocoa, berries. The fruit is subtle but present, with a nice coarse roastiness and powdery cocoa coffee. Normally fruit stouts are not my thing, but somehow this one works.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours dark brown/black with a creamy darkish tan head. Aroma of chocolate followed by red berry. Med body or better. Sort of creamy. Flavor is chocolate, smooth burnt malt and raspberry. After that there is a yeast/spice thing, but any fruity esters must be drowned out by the strong flavors. Itís very different and pretty tasty. Raspberry isnít overdone. Finishes nearly dry with a little chalky/ashy thing. Rather tasty and mouthsmacking.

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Bomber from the dumpy Spirits down in Beachwood. Poured a rather opaque chestnut brown body with a few visible floaties here and there all underneath a an average sized light beige foamy head. Aroma is solid with lots of chocolate, Belgian yeast, soft dark raspberries, brown bread, dry earth and some leather. Medium bodied with average carbonation that becomes almost chewy and a lingering chocolate flavor. The raspberry picks up in the flavor along with some burnt toast and bitter bakers dark chocolate along with some harsh green hop cones and coffee grounds. The flavor needs to lose the bitterness and take a lesson from the very nice aroma. This is way better then I was anticipating.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 27, 2013
22oz bottle: pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with ruby hues and a clingy-lacing froth of beige head. Has a lightly sweet dark malty nose with some raspberry and dark chocolate notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and light toasted malty sweetness with some lightly tart fruits and doughy yeast before a drier bittersweet finish. Could use a little more sweetness, but a good concept nonetheless.

Smell is interesting, like a stouty framboise. Definitely can smell the berries, dark chocolate note. Taste is similar to smell, tart raspberry with a dark chocolate, slightly spicy chicory stout finish. Sadly, it's a little watery. I wish it were as vivid on the tongue as it smells. A fun beer, but I'm interested in a bigger version of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
