(draft @ Local Option - Chicago, IL) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Roasted chocolate and dark malt aroma with a nice natural raspberry undertone.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of raspberries, chocolate, light ash, coffee and dried fruit. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of raspberries, vanilla, bitter chocolate, light coffee and raw sugar. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Really nice play between the raspberry and the chocolate notes. Great.

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.
