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.

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.

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.

Pretty good. The raspberries come through nicely. It’s quite a mellow taste and feel.

Pours a dark amber brown color. Sweet to the nose. A sweet flavour heavily malted with a strong raspberry taste. Not bad but not my style.

I liked this beer a lot when there were few beers that mixed fruit and other, darker styles. It does have a nice blend of a brown ale base that is chocolaty and the tart flavor of raspberry. It is a nice beer, but others have come along since and surpassed it.
