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 (4069) - 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.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2004
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.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Not a bad fruit beer- poured a very deep, clear red-brown with a thin light tan head. Raspberry syrup aroma with some toasty malt. The flavor reminded me of Brach’s chocolate-covered raspberry nougats, with plenty of raspberry flavor (which was pleasant) not quite balanced by toasty, chocolatey malts. Not bad, but where’s the beer?

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 21, 2004
This bottled brew marked best before may of 2003 poured a medium large sized head of fine to medium sized light brown colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was an opaque dark brown color with no visible carbonation. The aroma was malty with a good raspberry scent to it that made me sneeze! Achoo! The mouth feel was smooth with a raspberry brown ale finish. The flavor contained notes of raspberries and brown malts. Strange but true. I thought the appearance and the aroma were its best qualities.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Pours with a thin light tan head. Dark, dark brown color to it. Deep raspbeery flavor, with brown sugar, and pretty malty.

BennyTicklez (621) - USA - MAY 13, 2004
Pours dark brown with a good sized tan head. This stuff tastes like a chocolate covered raspberry. Goes down smooth but fills you up fast. I was surprised of how good this was.

DanielBrown (3782) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2004
Bottle from Beverages and More, Mission Valley, San Diego. Very dark colour, only held up to the light can I see some brown. Very, very nice raspberry aroma. Delicious beer. Tastes like a raspberry and chocolate pie: a superb combination. Fresh and light, but a vivid flavour and a sweet aftertaste. Top notch.
