Deep brown-red. Nose peaty and malty, a bit of fruit. Flavor has chocolate and roasts, raspberry comes on but is a bit thin. Eh.

22 oz. bottle: pours a deep brown with ruby red tints to it. nice flluffy tan head. the aroma is of raspberries with hints of chocolate, caramel/toffee. mild raspberry taste up from with chocolate and caramel right behind. the taste is kinda toasty more so that roasty. very well balanced in my opinion. this beer could possibly be my all time favorite fruit beer.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Bottled. Deep, ruby color, clear and topped by a tan head, leaving behind minimal lacing, becoming a ring, fully lasting. Crisp aroma of fresh raspberries and toasted malts, caramel, toffee and mostly honey for malts with warmth; smells smoothe and rich, nutty, toasty. Soft, foamy carbonation, long duration, dry carbonation, fairly dry finish, medium body; clean, some light watery character, but moreso dry. Dry, dry front and then creeps in refreshing raspberries, sweetish toffee and caramel malts with a lightly bitter, toasty nut finish, raspberry carrying through. Most enjoyable brown; clean, crisp, toasty and refreshing. A great brown.

Ringo (963) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2004
On tap at the brewpub in Eureka, CA. Tasted like the brown ale with some raspberry in it, which I suppose that it is. I like the plain brown better, however my girlfriend liked this one and she hates dark beers in general.

A pretty good brown ale. Deep copper-brown color with decent head. Fruity aromas and toasted taste. Rasberry fruit taste quite subdued.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2004
Tap@Lost Coast. Glace cheery sweetness, with a decent brown ale to back it up, don’t like the rasberry sweetness.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Nicer dark brown color,small head that faded fast.The aroma was malty and a little coffee with a nice amount of hops coming through,the raspberry is there but fairly subdued.Very nice flavor almost like dunking raspberries in a little sweet chocolate.The falvor is lightly malty with a decent amount of raspberry,a little chcolate and maybe a slight hint of coffee but it’s hard to tell.The hops are there but only towards the end of the tasting.This is a nicely done brew with lots of flavors that seem to have a pretty decent balance.Another good brew from LC,Thanks go to Enniskillenkid for sending this nice brew my way.

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2004
Bottle. Medium sized tan head and fine-medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. Some carbonation, opaque and a dark brown hue. Malty and raspberry aroma. Sweet, acidic, tart, sour, and a raspberry flavor from start to finish that left an aftertaste. Mouthfeel fairly smooth and somewhat watery and thin. Light-medium bodied beer with fair lacing on the sides of my glass.

I usually don’t care for non-grass family fruit interfering with my beer. This beverage is the rare exception because of how well the natural flavor of raspberries balance with the malts of a brown ale. This is a nice dark burgandy lucious beer with a fruity nose and a slight bitter (brown) palate. The flavor is just astringent enough to balance the malts and just fruity enough to mellow the astringency. Not to detract from the razz, but this would make a great brown ale minus the fruit.
