This one poured a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of chocolate and raspberries, and light roast. Flavor was similar, pretty nice chocolate raspberry stout, a bit on the sweet side, but tasty.

A lot of sweet fruitiness for a stout. It's black but doesn't have much stoutness. Thin pallett. Good but confusing looking at it and then tasting it knowing it a porter

Draft at Stouts. Not much going on in the nose in terms of raspberry or chocolate. Served way too cold, but the raspberry fruit and chocolate tastes shine through a layer of roasted malt. Bitter chocolate in the finish. Nice.

On tap at the Great Lakes brewery. Pours a beautiful pitch black. Very light bodied with subtle notes of berries. Interesting and complex.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
This draft brew from the brew pub poured a head of finely sized tan colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong spicy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of spices brown malt and dark malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Tap at GLBC, a respectable brew which has the raspberry finish I enjoy though not prevalent enough to wow me. Balanced and drinkable, the porter gets a bit lost.. good not great

Growler shared by brew3crew in Feb. of 2012. Pours dark brown in color with a small beige head. The aroma has light roasted malt, chocolate and raspberry. The flavor has a very pleasant fresh raspberry/raspberry jam blend, sweeter chocolate and roasted malts. This is a nice winter porter I would welcome again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Deep reddish brown pour with a very clingy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and raspberry. Smooth palate - good density. Taste is mild roast, and sweet chocolate and berry. Good stuff.
