3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bomber purchased at the brewery in Springfield, Missouri. The pour is a hazed almost murky brown with a well formed one inch khaki head. The aroma is clean soft cocoa chocolate along with fresh raspberry and general malt sweetness. The taste is the malt initially, toffee, nut, caramel along with the cocoa chocolate of the nose, and the finish is the softly tart raspberry, that really cuts nicely through the initial sweetness and dries out the finish. The palate is medium to heavy bodied, lower carbonation and the sweet than clean tart raspberry in the aftertaste. Flavors really meld well, beautifully executed concept.

Sampled at gregwilsons tasting. Thanks Doran. Very dark brown and opaque. The aroma is rich fruity goodness. A nice aroma. First sip is kind of bitter raspberry with chocolate under. A whole lot going on here. Wood, earth, huge rich malts, so much fruit, berries. Delicious stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A clear chestnut brown with a slight ruby tint, a small tan head with tight bubbles that settles to a ring and leaves decent lacing. Aroma of raspberry sorbet, mild chocolate and toasted malt. Taste has raspberry flavoring with a hint of tartness and caramel sweetness along with some dark chocolate, toasted malt that hints a being roasty, some moderate booze and mild bitterness. Finishes semi dry with a lingering toasty/toasty flavor. Mouthfeel is somewhat slick with a medium body and light/moderate carbonation. Not very complex but the flavors do work well together even though I would have liked a fresher raspberry flavor.

Keg @ Sideways, Fayetteville. Deep brown with red highlights. Small head. Nose is dark forest fruits, plum. Some cocoa and dark chocolate. Taste is bright raspberry. Tart and sweet. Cuts the rich toffee and chocolate well. Full body, rich but has good balance. An improvement on the base beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy very dark brown with a creamy light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a rich sweet raspberry (hint of tartness) note with a nice backing of dark grains and a bit of sweet dark bread. Flavor has more of the sweet raspberry with some light dark grains that add some balance.
