hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
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!

Dogbrick (9446) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sample from batch #117 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. Pours a dark cola color with a medium foamy tan head that dissipates gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of raspberries, chocolate and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of tart raspberry, chocolate malt and slight coffee. The finish is malty and fruity with a slightly sour raspberry aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

crossovert (9207) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2013 DLD tick. Thick, boozy version of the beer with a great raspberry flavor, I don’t get the mediinal qualities. 2nd bottle batch 94 - Dark brown pour with a carmael head. Cocoa smell, some raspberry, rich flavor with coffee, dark cocoa, and a tart raspberry finish. Motor oil like consistency. Score upped.
