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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2013
Draft at Taps 25, Lansing. Deep brown body, thin tan head. Light raspberry in the nose and body, backed by roasted malts and coffee. Nice chocolaty finish. Relatively light-bodied.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 1, 2013
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.

Really tasty porter with a nice twist by adding raspberries. Another great porter from Great Lakes.

BVery (5966) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2012
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.
