Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours black with a tiny, quickly dissipating head. It doesn’t even stick around long enough to figure out its color. The aromatics are of fudge, brownies, chocolate crème and vanilla. Full-bodied with a super silky mouthfeel and faint carbonation. The flavor is a blend of bittersweet chocolate with only a rumor of raspberry. Finishes chocolaty and quite warming. Great beer… BBB63 shipped the love my way!

750 ml shared at the Swamp Head Bottle Drop. Pours dark brown to black with a small khaki head. Aroma is huge chocolate covered raspberries, really nice, with just a hint of roast. Flavor follows as expected with big raspberry flavor, some dark chocolate, and more raspberry. This almost drinks like a fruit beer with a little extra heft. Not too sweet, and tastes like raspberries rather than cough syrup, but just touches the border onto the medicinal side. Very very sweet nonetheless. Medium plus body, adequate carbonation. Don’t need much of this to get the gist, and definitely one to share. Very glad I got a chance to try it.

Dark brown pour with a dark tan head. Lots of sweet raspberries and chocolate. Once you taste this beer....you know how they came up with the name.

alexsdad06 (5408) - Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2014
Bottle sampled in November 2013 from notes. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin tan head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, chocolate truffle mixed with raspberry, some sweetness, mild tart character, tobacco, carries the abv pretty well, caramel, and a moderate bitterness to the finish. Perhaps a bit thin for the style. Very solid and I would love another shot at this.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pours thick dark unclear brownish with a caramel head. Aroma is light sweet malts and a vague hint of berries. Flavor is similar, not big sweet berries bit just enough to satisfy.

Bottle. Batch 120. Very berry nose almost artificial. Taste is the same. Pretty good but after 3 of these I’m kinda over it. Need a secretary.

Bottle share thanks to Homer321. batch 120. Deep dark blackish pour. Aroma is huge raspberry, chocolate, tobacco character. Lots of raspberry flavoring, sweet, light roasty, more raspberry. Best if the abduction beers I had so far.

beechner224 (669) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle share thanks to DrewFace. Batch 120. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of raspberry, fruitiness, some mild chocolate. Taste is fruity, raspberry pretty strong, more so than orange. Harshness isn’t as bad in this one either, best so far.

cpetrone84 (1379) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2014
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.

Sample from Baltimore, uhh bottle .. . Pours a mild brown space .. . Mild raspberry, chocolate, shirts, and a bit of jam. .. The mouth feel is a bit dim and the finish is light .. . Decent but Was hoping for more .. . . A teddy bear is just a regular bear that wears lingerie in private.
