Courtesy of northernbrews
Bottle: The aroma consists of dark chocolate, black licorice, alcohol, light raspberry, oak, and faint vanilla. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, caramel, and vanilla. The finish has light-moderate tart raspberry and light oak. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat creamy mouthfeel.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2013 bottle. Deep brown-black body sports fizzy tan head. Chocolate covered raspberries fill the air, seeping onto the palate courtesy of a silky smooth body. Love the dose of honey midway through.
While the flavors here are all complementary, they don't coalesce quite as well here as in other similarly-brewed stouts. Or even as they did in previous batches of LP (2011, to be precise). OH is in a difficult spot here, as this delicious recipe is at the mercy of execution to make the leap from "very good" to "excellent".

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From bomber. Pours dark and thick with just a touch of brown head. Aroma hints of raspberry like Mark McGuire hinted if steroids.
The addition of raspberry to this beer is a complete waste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark as night. Chocolate and coffee on the nose. Sharp raspberries flavors and smooth vanilla-oak creaminess on the tongue. Smooth body with a very sharp and pronounced boozy finish. Not quiet perfectly balanced, but fantastic nonetheless! Will age and revisit in one year intervals.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with a brown head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate, roasted malt and raspberry notes. The flavor is similar with the berry notes cutting through the heavy chocolate and roasted malt notes. I also get some honey notes. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice stout.
