A little light. Subtle raspberry. Not a very sweet brown and probably over carbonated. Could use some mouth feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear brown pour, with a thick frothy tan head. Aroma is chocolate with a raspberry malty aroma. Taste is rich chocolate malts up front, close behind is the slightly tart raspberry . No bitterness. Rich and creamy silky smooth mouth feel. Moderately dry berry finish. Nicely done.

RobertDale (5180) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 26, 2015
22 ounce bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with an average beige head. Aroma of raspberries, chocolate, and malt. Taste is sweet raspberries, chocolate, and malt. Way too artificial. Could only manage a few ounces.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2015
Bottle, WholeFoods, Orlando. Pours a deep brown colour. Bready aroma with hay & raspberry notes. Fairly full-bodied, the raspberry taste is there, but I wouldn’t mind it being a bit more upfront. More malt and bread late on, decent, but more of a brown ale than a fruit beer.

sueandron (12) - Sublimity, Oregon, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Tried it at 2 Sparkys in Salem, OR. Had a great raspberry taste but there was a slightly fishy aftertaste, not enough to discourage me but just a little odd. I will try it again some day.
