22 oz bomber, Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl Pours a tea-colored brown with some ruby-red tints. Light, off-white colored head. Aroma has faint wisps of raspberry in there, smells fresh. Flavor has some sweet chocolate underlying the raspberry aling with some nuttiness. . The raspberry flavor is very natural tasting, not cloyingly sweet. One of the better fruit beers I have had in terms of blending the fruit flavor.

Many thanks to Rastacouere for this one. Raspberry aroma with notes of a weird cleanser and some metallic rust notes. Not particularly pleasing aroma. Dark amber/burgundy color with a frothy light tan head. Start is slightly tart with mild hints of raspberries. In the middle, it turns roasty, toasty and malty with chocolate tones. This is extremely well-balanced flavorwise. The raspberries work well with the chocolate and roasted malts and neither overpowers the other. This should be what brewers strive for flavorwise and balancewise when they make fruited brown ales. Unfortunately, the aroma on this beer sucks.

bomber shared with DYCSoccer17. Garnet red with a medium beige head. Lots of raspberry on the nose, and some other sweet characteristics. Thin mouthfeel, raspberry dominates, however it is not cloying. Maybe a hint of lightly roasted malt. But raspberry is the king on this one. thin, watery, but definately drinkable.

super lacey off white head on a deep red/brown body, smells distinctly like cotton candy, bold raspberry flavor that overwhelms anyting else that could be there, watery palate, easy going

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle poured a dark brown with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is light roast and raspberry. Flavor is roast, chocolate with raspberrys in the back. Almost like a very light bodied porter.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Armoa and flavor of raspberry fruit. Dark body but if held to light has a ruby tint to it. Off white head. Was rich and smooth on the palate. A good fruit beer.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Undercarbonated. Pretty nice aroma - berry and malt with a little cocoa. Clear, medium-dark brown beer with a clingy, light tan head. Bad label. Toasty, a little coffee tartness, pistachio tones. Some off notes as well - potato/squash - the raspberry actually presents a sort of vegetable quality up front. Session weight. It was initially very disappointing, but it kind of grew on me towards the bottom of the bomber. Didn’t do well in a back-to-back with Rogue Chipotle - it certainly didn’t seem as complex or well-crafted.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2005
Deep brown pour with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, big raspberries. Tastes raspberryish, with a solid caramel malt presence. Medium palate and not super complex, but very refreshing.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with hint of ruby when put up to light.. Sweet roasty, nutty raspberry aroma. Roasted coffee flavor with hints of raspberry. Tastes like a fruit porter of sorts. Quite good as far as fruit beers go.

22 oz bottle-bottled in jan 05-pours a deep ruby hue with a small beige head. chocolate covered raspberries waff from my glass in a very nice manner. some roasty nuts going on as well in the aroma (that sounded disgusting!). Ok, this is what i was expecting NB raspberry to be like. Flavors have 3 equal components-raspberry, nutty goodness and chocolate. The fruit flavors never overpower the taste and well balanced with malts. Medium body with average carbonation. A very tasty treat that works well as a dessert beer!
