Bottle from Jim’s in Mundelein. Very dark brown pour with little head. Aroma leads and follows with raspberries. Sweet and tart smelling. Eventually down in the glass, some caramel and light chocolate show through. Taste is of sweet caramel, raspberries and some bakers chocolate. Nice contrast between the darker flavors and the fruit ones. Medium bodied or a touch lighter and fairly smooth. Finishes with a nice blend between sweet and tart and bitter. Very interesting and well balanced. 14.4

Look - Little to no head. Light for a porter. No lacing. Dark, jet black body. Smell - Raspberry. Bubblegum. Chocolate. Taste - Watered down. Raspberry. Chocolate. Coffee. Dark Chocolate. Feel - Very light, watery. No carbonation. Overall - I was hoping for Big Luscious and got Big Bland. You can’t find Big Luscious anywhere though.

thorongil2 (1539) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015
(bottle) clear, very dark brown colour with a small brown head; aroma of roast, slight tropical fruit; clean, balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish; slightly creamy palate; unexceptional

LinusStick (2965) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Average beer. Aroma was decent. Dark roasted malt with a hint of dark chocolate and a whisper of raspberry. Pour was a nice deep dark brown with a thin tan ring for a head. Taste was OK. Thick with the nice strong carbonation drowning out most flavors. The raspberry flavor is dominant mid-sip with a roasted malt afterthought. Could’ve benefited more from some more chocolate flavor.

GenDV138 (2860) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2015
4 oz pour on draft at Spacebar. Dark brownish black with beige head. Aromas of caramel, chocolate. Tastes of dark fruit and berries, chocolate, roast. Medium body with a dry finish.

nimbleprop (5536) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 17, 2015
16oz pour at Galaxy Hut pours a translucent burnt brown with some fluffy, off white head. Nose is mostly molasses, Hershey’s powder and berry. Honestly, it doesn’t mesh like other similar beers. Flavor is the same, heavy chocolate syrup, heavy molasses, berry, some pepper, some malt. Full, sticky finish. 16oz was too much. Drank heavier than 7%.

This was a very smooth porter. It poured nicely, had a very nice aroma to it and 2ent down smoothly. I would recommend it for fans of dark porters

Maddog (425) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle. Creamy, mild roast and mild cocoa. Medium body. I’m wondering if the raspberries that I can barely detect will become more pronounced as it warms. A good porter.

rumproasts (3724) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 15, 2015
bottle. Deep brown with one finger head. Solid chocolate malt base. Sweet raspberry flavor comes across a bit artificial. Still, a tasty beer.

Daytonbeer (688) - Ohio, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Pours near black with tan head and good lacing. Aroma of raspberries and chocolate...exactly like the description. Taste is the same with a big malty backbone. Ideal body for a porter.
