Draft at mill town. Pours black with a khaki head. Doesn't leave much lacing in the glass. Raspberry is fairly big on the tongue as well as on the nose with the chocolate coming across on the finish. Solid example of style.

12 ounce bottle. Translucent brown color with a small tan head. Roasted malt nose is redolent of raspberry. Like a raspberry truffle. Soft and silky with fruity, cocoa notes. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle split with my mom. Aroma: Moderate dark chocolate; light roast; light raspberry. Appearance: Dark garnet/ruby pour with a foamy tan head that fades into a thin, patchy skin. Flavor: Light raspberry lingers on throughout; up front, chocolate shows up more underneath; roasty malts come in more towards the finish, which is dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A likeable fruited porter; worth a shot though not exceptional.

Bottle. This is a luscious porter with a nice big dallop of sweetness sitting amidst the roasted malts.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nice head retention. Aroma is of raspberries, chocolate, and malt. Some slight notes of coffee in the aroma as well. Taste is very chocolately, with a strong raspberry flavor to it as well. Has a toasty malt backbone. Strong, underlying coffee character. Lingering raspberry taste. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. Body is sticky and heavily carbonated. Tastes good, but if you don’t like raspberries, you wont like this one.

Tulip at HopCat on State Street in Madison. Very dark and rich -- like chocolate covered raspberries. Was smooth and supple, but a little cloying by the end.
