Omen is a delicious combination of darkness, raspberries and the classic flavors and aromas of Belgian yeast.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2013 Draught poured at Stag’s 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.

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. It’s very different and pretty tasty. Raspberry isn’t overdone. Finishes nearly dry with a little chalky/ashy thing. Rather tasty and mouthsmacking.

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.

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

Hanuta06 (380) - Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: strong raspberry and lightly dark-chocolate--the raspberry aroma was strong until the last drop of beer. Appearance: large, rocky, light-brown, initial head with fully diminishing longevity and good lacing. Black-hued body with lots of bubbles. Taste: lightly bitter initial taste with moderately bitter/sour finish and long duration. Palate: light to medium-bodied with dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall: excellent. Complex. Amazing aroma, interesting palate and taste.

Bacterial (1982) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Pour from bomber. Dark brown pour, thin with a tan head. Belgian spicy nose with some chocolate malt notes. I don't pick up any fruit in the nose. Just a hint of raspberry, balanced really well with the Belgian style stout. I like this better as it warms up a bit.

EithCubes (5195) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Bomber. Nose roasty with nice chicory accents and fainter chocolate, seems very smooth and rounded, raspberries alluded to rather than sledged. Pours cola-to-pitch with a frothy tanned head. Watery body, light roast and faint bitterness (but both meld beautifully and last long into the afterlife), lightly crisp with subtle smoke and ahhh, there are the raspberries! Very pleasant mineral character reminds of a diluted Foreign Stout and plays off the razz quite well, again beautiful synergy. Supple malt with a speck of moo-hoo, er, Yoo-hoo. Natural and very, very mellow. Alcohol deftly threaded in from the bottom. This one’s all about the excellent overall balance, which it has in spades; would love to have this again.
