COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Raspberries and chocolate go together like two peas in a pod. But donít worry, thereís no peas in the Rubus Cacao. Rather the sweet chocolate, roasty bitterness and dark raspberry fruit combine in perfect harmony. Who knows, the Rubus might even become the pea in your pod!

Barreras (1560) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 6, 2016
Pours a dark chocolate color with a dark fruity choco aroma. Taste is sweet chocolate mixed with a dark sweet fruit flavor. An odd combination that was successful. Great complexity with a smooth finish leaving a dry roasted malt and fruit in the aftertaste.

tmongoose (2219) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 26, 2016
Can to sampler that poured a dark brown to almost black with a smallish mocha head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and hints of raspberry almost like raspberry preserves. The flavor was about right with the aroma nice blend of roasted malts and dark chocolate and a little more raspberry in the middle and on the end. Nicely balanced start to finish. A solid stout.

Panzuriel (1952) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Location: 12oz can purchased at Meijer in westerville Appearance: Darker brown with touches of red. Head is fine layer of tiny tan bubbles. Nose: Sweet medium roasted malt with a touch of fruit at the end. Based on the deScription it seems raspberry, but without the suggestion Iím not sure itís so certain. Taste: Immediately tangy, lighter coffee roast. Hint of sweetness. Toasted nuts and a decent amount of candy raspberry in the mid to late swallow. A bit of a shorter roasted finish Body: softer carbonation. Just a bit of silk. Medium body. Parting thoughts: Not what I was expecting. A little less chocolate raspberry, than I was envisioning, but still a good subtle but certain fruit presence.

12 ounce can, canned on 02/12/2016. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown with about an inch frothy tan head that stayed around for a little while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like milk and bittersweet chocolate, raspberries, and roasted malt. I think the taste is just like the aroma, itís all chocolate, raspberry and roasted malt. Thereís a lot of sweet and bitter flavor that works really well together, neither one overpowers the other. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy and coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. I liked it, definitely worth picking up if you like fruited stouts. $2.59 for a single can.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Sample at Mad Tree on 3/1/16. Darkest brown in color with a medium tan head. Nose of malt, berry and some chocolate. Malty flavor with artificial raspberry giving way to a vanilla and chocolate finish.
