12 oz bottle.
Very dark brown, with a thick lasting tan head.
Dessert like aroma of chocolate and raspberries, reminiscent of Ghiradelli dark and raspberry squares. Some toasty malt in there too.
Flavor is tart, raspberry jam, followed by cocoa powder, and chocolate, light coffee, touch of milky sourness.

Draft. Black/brown pour. The raspberry is prominent in the aroma, cocoa too. Flavor isn’t too sweet like it could be, still dessert like.

This is pretty good for a fruit flavored porter, which typically don’t work for me. It’s brown in the glass w/ a tan head and little splotches of lace. Nose is mostly chocolate and roasty coffee w/ just a touch of raspberry, which comes out much more when you taste it due to a little bit of sweetness. This is medium bodied and fairly gently carbonated. It finishes w/ a bit of dark chocolate bitterness and some roast. I’m being a bit lenient w/ my numbers because I am trying it out of season and it is not really the kind of thing I’d want to come back to but this is pretty good overall.

12 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh, NC (Enjoy by September 28, 2015). Dark brown cola-like pour with a short beige head. Expected aromas of chocolate and coffee with light floral hops. Taste is as advertised with chocolate and raspberry flavors. Hints of light smoke and dark espresso are noted as well. Nicely done.
