4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft in a snifter - raspberry nose. Sip adds chocolate. Reminds me I those assorted fancy chocolates you get from your grandparents as a kids and just munch on them not knowing what you picked out until you put it in your mouth since you canít read. Coffee aftertaste with wood/smoke notes. The fruit beer sucker in me would have liked more berries. Wood fire smoke for sure like cherry or chestnut. Makes me want to camp.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
A good flavored cocoa porter with a taste of raspberry at the end. Received from growler station at Jungle Jimís. Poured nice dark brown color with a nice short lasting head. None of the flavors are overpowering, but you can taste them all. Easy to drink and goes down nicely. An overall very good beverage.

Draft: nothing suprisingly here, itís chocolate and raspberries. A little heavier on the raspberries vs the chocolate, but if you think of it as a fruit beer with some chocolate flavors, it is wonderful. Fresh, sweet and does down really easy. Nicely done!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with clear edges and a small tan head. Aroma of raspberry, chocolate, brown sugar, and light toasted and roasted malts. Flavor of raspberry, chocolate, earth, leaves, and a hint of spice. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, earthy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Unusual beer with the raspberry presence, but it works in its own unique way.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Madtree. Also bought growler which seemed a little overcarbonated. Chocolate and raspberry come through nicely and are not overwhelming.
