3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is dark brown, almost black with a bubbly light brown head. Nose is heavy raspberry purée. A hint of roasted malt and chocolate but not much else and dominated by raspberries. Taste has a bit more malt, still loads of raspberry. Hint of chocolate, and roasted ashy malt. Body is creamy, light carbonation and medium body. Sweet towards the back and lingers through the finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. We did a side by side- by side with the other variants of the stout. ok it looks like it should. The nose indeed raspberry and chocolate. Something that I don’t like about these beers is they take a mediocre stout and add fruit puree. The flavor is weak chocolate stout with raspberry puree. Its drinkable but no where near worth the hype. Well, if you enjoy fruit purees in your stout, you might like this. This was the only drinkable out of all the fruit abductions.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours black with a thin tan ring of head. Nose is chocolate-covered raspberry with lightly roasted dark malt. Taste is the same--seedy raspberry with dark chocolate. Sweet but not overpowering, with a little coffee. Thinner than I would have guessed.
