A very nice fruity strong ale. Cocoa, cinammon, nutmeg, plum, and yes, raspberry. Very nice addition.

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.

Smooth kind of soft lighter carbonation. Tasty stuff! raspberry and malt notes work well together, I enjoyed this.

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.

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.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of raspberry, dark cocoa, hints of earth, slight spice, touch of vanilla, slight coffee as well. Taste is a mix of raspberry, dark fruit, cocoa, dark fruit, nice earth, spice, finishing like a raspberry truffle. Delicious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Bottle #371. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Notes of chocolate, caramel, and toasted malts, nuts, and dried leaves, with only a bit of raspberry initially. But sweet raspberries emerge more as it warms. Light-medium bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a roasty, eventually fruity mouthfeel. Interesting but seems like it could be better.
