3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a black color with little head. Nose is pure raspberry jam, some acid, and a bit of roast. The palate is actually tart, with flavors of raspberry syrup, chocolate, roast, and a bit of coffee grounds. Finishes dry and short. Pretty nice.
