Danyel (1074) - Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is strong raspberry, chocolate, wow- amazing aroma, tons of berry. Taste is chocolate, a bit chalky, a bit astringent, vanilla, cough syrup, full-bodied, medium carbonation. Overall, one of the best aromas but the doesn’t quite go into the taste.

Salmoniform (999) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Poured from bottled to glass. Dark hue with creamy tan head that settled to a ring. Aroma is huge raspberry, chocolate, earthy, caramel, ethanol. Mouthfeel is is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet with a slight astringent following and ethanol finish. Overall this is a good beer but has a beautiful aroma.

Aaron68 (608) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle @ "Schouskjelleren", Oslo. October 23, 2014. Beer enjoyed from a tulip glass. Black in color with a beige brown head and medium carbonation. Raspberries up front with dark chocolate,coffee and some roasted malt aroma. Tastes fruity with raspberries,malt and dark chocolate. Easy drinkable beer and quite hidden ABV. The beer ends with a slightly bitter finish. Descent Stout,but way to much fruit and raspberries for my taste.

TheArgoPirate (76) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Pours dark reddish brown with quickly dissipating khaki head. Not much aroma, faint chocolate and raspberry. Taste is tart and somewhat robust raspberry followed by dark chocolate that lingers nicely. Gets better by the sip, very tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaser (3113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Black pour from 22oz bottle. Thick with brown ring of head. The raspberry aroma is subtle - the taste is massive. Chocolate and creamy. A thick beer. Almost syrupy. Very good.

dinkle50 (1025) - 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 (1289) - 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.

jackl (4932) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle via trade. New batch. Deep brown with a small head. Very strong raspberry coulis. Raspberry jam. Very bright and aggressive raspberry character. Some dark chocolate and nutella. 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.
