The nose is immediately and overwhelmingly raspberries, with shades of chocolate and smokiness but they’re subdued. The aroma sets you up for tart sourness but it never materializes. Some chocolaty malts seem a likely culprit for the smooth, sweet taste with light sourness around the edges. A delightful beer. Poured from a bottle.
