Medium brown with a small tan head and minimal lace. Pretty strong cherry/raspberry aromas with some light milk chocolate and roasted malt. Slight tartness, less than the smell would suggest, up front followed quickly by cola and malt. The fruitiness seemed a bit manufactured - my compliments to the chemist.

From a bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown, probably a little too much raspberry for my liking, you don’t get much else in the flavour.

Des chocolats à la framboise en arôme, très frais et volatile. En bouche c’est croustillant et hautement engouffrable. Florida friendly.

gramity (1581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Clear brown beer. Light raspberry nose. Slightly watery palate. Low carbonation. Very odd beer! Like a bottle of cold tea with raspberry flavour added. The raspberry is light and the tea flavour is strong. Minerally watery finish

Not a very good beer, lots of fake cherry, on sale at bevmo so low expectations

The bright flavors of chemically enhanced cherry (not raspberry) are so prevalent, that you can actually feel the warming sensation of the brain tumor growing with every sip.

>> Thank you DedicatedToFun for this tick. Pours a clear deep tea amber red. No head formation. Nose is cherry tootsie roll pop. Taste is watered down tootsie roll, chemical old cherry soda. Palate is watery, old soda. Ick.

<!> Artificial, watery

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of ripe raspberries and roasted caramel malts. The taste was bold raspberry and not overly sweet and sticky. It had a slight hop finish with a medium body and smooth carbonation. Nice.

Ferris (8081) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 19, 2014
Draft - Raspberries and dark chocolate. Clear mahogany and creamy beige head. Raspberries in a way that you feel like you are also getting the seeds, amazingly potent with dark chocolate malts. Not an everyday beer but something with desert.

Bottle left over from my Christmas party. Not sure what says "Christmas" about this but someone thought so. Pours a medium, clear brown with slight tan head. Aroma is raspberry cough syrup with some very bad, stale, year old coffee mixed in. Taste is more stale coffee up front with some lingering sweetness near the middle with the raspberry coming through at the end in a nice way that just disguises the grossness of this beer to make you come back for another sip. Scroll past.
