3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at brewpub pours a dark brown/black with a reddish tan head. Aroma has lots of fresh almost ripe raspberry and dark chocolate. Taste is of tart raspberry becoming more sweet with the dark chocolate which becomes earthy and bitter with some slight coffee on the finish. Nice, dangerously drinkable at 8.5%.

On tap at Northbound. Super nice black pour with a ring of tan head. Aroma is some nice chocolate with a hint of dark malt and nice raspberry as well. Taste is raspberry upfront and finishes with a really smooth chocolate and malt, not too sweet.

Tap at the brewpub. This is magnificent. Dark pour, small creamy ring head. Cocoa powder pouring out on aroma and a nice raspberry sweetness to complement it. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at brewpub. Opaque black pour, light aroma (sad-face), thin head with minimal lacing. Taste is excellent, a great balance with fruitiness (raspberry, duh!), malty sweetness, dark chocolate, mild hops, some liquor flavor - 8.5% abv. The strength in this brew is in subtlety, as it achieves it's complexity without being overbearing.
