RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2006
2004 vintage. This has an aroma consisting of raspberries, chocolate, and a mild hint of sour mash. It is a mahogany colored solution with a glaze of a caramel colored head, but with good lacing. This rich beer introduces itself to the mouth with the sweet taste of raspberries and dates. In the mouth the flavor is a raspberry and chocolate combination. The chocolate taste enters during the finish and lingers well in the throat.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Sample BI Indy gathering 2/25/06 - Aroma is strong raspberry, chocolate, and malt. Pours thick red-brown with no head or lacing. Flavor is so nice and delicate. I was surprised the chocolate is allowed to be as strong as it is. The raspberry and chocolate blend together to make it a perfect dessert. Palate is tart and creamy. Great stuff. I need to drink more to justify such a high rating. I’m sure it will probably go up though.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Very thick and dark brownish-red...Smells fruity, like with figs and cherries, more like a barelywine than a "fruit beer". The rasberries are well-hidden, but it smells like cake/frosting - reminds me of cupcakes or something like that...Very heavy...very rasberry flavor with bits of dark chocolate. It has a pleasant tart finish and is not as sweet as I expected it to be. Very, very good!

notalush (5184) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2006
2004 bottle, huge thanks to Pailhead for getting me this much sought after treat - dark burgundy color with minimal lace - the aroma can best be described as chocolate raspberry cheesecake - VERY inviting - the flavor is similar to this - like a liquid dessert - chocolate takes center stage, but the raspberries, while taking a subordinate role, are what really make the beer shine - only mildly sweet, with a slight raspberry tartness at the end to further cut the sweetness - what can be said that others haven’t said already? - this beer rocks.
