Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Black color, compact head. Mild aroma of roasted malts and cardboard. Roasted malt flavor, rather dry, also more body was expected given the high ABV, and once more the raspberries add nothing g good to black beers, as their tartness doesnít blend with the roasted malts.
Could be an OK beer for somebody, but the result is cacophonous.

Travlr (15918) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (12744) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2012
Tap at Elysian Fields, Seattle - 09/11/12. Mid black with a thin tan head. Nose is chocolate, roast malts, a little Belgian yeastiness. Tastes of chocolate, raspeberry is well evident, dark malts, hint of Belgian yeast esters. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a sweet roasty finish. Decent enough, does what it says on the tin, the 7%+ alcohol was very well hidden.

bhensonb (12468) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 30, 2013
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.

Bottle. Pours very dark brown - almost black- with tan head. Nose and taste of chocolate covered raspberries, dusty cocoa, roast chocolate malt, coffee roast and vanilla. Finishes with slightly soured raspberries but still plenty of roast. Body is a little on the lighter side of medium.

Brown pour, light tan head. This is a fruit beer meets quad meets porter. Interesting beer.

adnielsen (10097) - 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.
