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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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%.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
