dinkle50 (988) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Black pour with an espresso head that fades quick. Aroma of raspberries. Big thick mouth. Chocolate covered Raspberry flavor with a tartness at the very end. Very satisfying. Chocolate is sweet, raspberry is tart, which play very well. Fresh fruit notes. Raspberry is slightly medicinal, but not overwhelming. Drinks real easy for 10.5%.

brystmar (1258) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Nice appearance: beady head and lace, solid retention. Razzy aroma, roasty, chocolatey, a touch of booze. Works better than expected; pretty good but it's no Lindley Park.

Frankly, the flavor’s verysimilar. Slight earthy roast malt. Some acid, coffee. Plenty of raspberry, fruit by the foot. Medium body, soft carb. Drinks pretty well for the chunky ABV. Tasty.

tmoreau (2426) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Cellared 750 ml. bottle, shared and poured to snifters showing a dark, mahogany color, with a decent layer of tan head foam, and clingy spots of lacing. The nose was moderately roasted, cocoa, treacle, dark fruit, and some raspberry jam. Medium+ bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was similar notes, with some syrupy stickiness, nicely melded alcohol, plus a distinct and lingering tartness. A tasty, cordial-like Stout.

JBPortland (779) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 17, 2014
750ml bottle pours dark brown black with 2 finger offwhite head. Nose is earthy roast cocoa, stale coffee, soil, compost, some fruity raspberry and vinous notes. Taste is nice creamy hershey chocolate, chocolate syrup, some coffee bean, composty fruit, berry. Finish is creamy semi sweet cocoa, earthy bitter chocolate, berry syrup. Just a touch of weirdness I can’t put my finger on but tastes pretty good.
