dresden (804) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 13, 2013
Gushing bottle purchased ad Holiday Wine Cellar in May, dark brown with some tan head. Aroma is pungent cardamom, some raspberry, something weird and unenjoyable. Taste is overwhelming cardamom, raspberry and chocolate take a backseat. This didnt work for me at all.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottle; poured a dark brown to black with a light brown head. Aroma of raspberries, roasted malt, herbs, caramel and chalk. Flavor was complex, but somewhat strange. Raspberries pronounced, roasted malt and meat in the finish. Palate a bit flat. Somewhat messy.

Ibrew2or3 (6768) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2013
It pours with a dark body that supports a mocha looking head of foam. The aroma seems to be cola, some spicy anise, dark fruity esters, ginger and pumpkin like spices. The taste is sweet with sugary malts, a dash of molasses, a sweet cola note and then a sweet nectar like blueberry sensation. It gets mildly dark and roasty with malts to midway and toward the finish. Interesting and the level of spice here seems to be right on as it lets plenty of the malts and such shine through.

EdInSaltLake (587) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Minty, raspberry, flaoral aroma. Prominent raspberry flavor, with similar floral character (from the cardamom, I guess?), and subtle chili pepper flavor. Tart berry aftertaste.

Dark brown, slight haze, tan head. Aroma of dark bread, chocolate, cardamom, raspberries are there too. Flavor of pumpernickel bread, slightly tart raspberry, dry chocolate, dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

douglas88 (5800) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2013
750 ml bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a pure black color with a small brown head. A sweet berry and spicy nose. A rich dry coffee and mellow roast flavor, ashy, some rich berries. Good.

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Poured from a 750ml bottle. The raspberry is very sting, chocolate, caramel, slight alcohol heat. Really light bodied for an imperial stout. The bottle kept foaming over.

anders37 (16301) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013

daknole (8867) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2013
Whoa, cool shit! Dark brown pour with a brown head. Love the cardamom and the hint of raspberries against the roaste malt and chocolate notes. Damn fun beer and damn good.
