22oz bottle, big thanks to Alexsdad06 for sharing. Very dark chocolate aroma, love it, and a nice amount of raspberry. Yeah, tastes almost exactly like a raspberry truffle; on the mark. Touch of coffee / roast. Bigger body. Mild chewiness. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Light slick. Near-black color, some clear red. Little tan head, some bits of lace. Bigger bitter taste, some bite. Lighter to moderate sweet. Tasty abduction. I like raspberry, I like dark chocolate, I like this. And I like the bitterness, manages to not be too sweet.

(draft @ Local Option - Chicago, IL) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a milder hint of cherries than the raspberry one had. Flavor is sweet and chocolatey with a good amount of roast and a hint of tart cherries near the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ THT November. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma of licorice,cherry, light chocolate. Flavor is quite sweet, light boozy and I was expecting some of the distinguishing truffle taste in there, but there wasn’t. Fruits are in there. Aftertaste is sweet, slightly boozy. Good stuff, but misses some complexity.
