Draft at the brewpub. Pours near black with a thin off white head. Sweet raspberry jammy aroma with hints of roast and chocolate. The flavor is similar with sweet raspberries and jam, sweet malt and a hint of roast. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a dark ruby, brown, with an average size lasting creamy tan head. Decent lacing.
Aroma: whoa, lots of raspberry! Some roastiness and chocolate but mainly raspberries. Flavour: Lots of raspberry again, a bit tart as well, along with roasted malt and a hint of coffee. A bit watery for a Stout. Average bodied. Different that’s for sure. Good though.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
10 ounce sample at the brewpub. Aroma has over the top artificial raspberry notes. It’s pleasant enough, but I do not detect any stout qualities in the aroma. Mildly transparent deep mahogany body with a small off-white head. Wow--just vile. VILE. Sour astringent pukey raspberry flavor dominates this liquid concoction. Finishes with a little chocolate, but goddamn. This is terrible. How can they sleep at night knowing they charge people money for this shit? DISASTEROUS!

On tap at the brewpub. Appearance: Pitch black, small tan head. Aroma: Chocolate, raspberry, malt and cream. Flavour: Sour as hell! Lots of fresh raspberries, tart, hoppy, so interesting, lots of carbonation, looks like a porter and drinks like a sour. Nice.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nose is raspberry syrup or maybe raspberry pie. Flavor is raspberry syrup and, well... not much else. A bit of roast comes out towards the finish. Nice creamy body.
