Smells like raspberries. Taste is total raspberry tartness up front. It coats your mouth and dissolves into chocolate at the end. Very fun beer!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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 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.

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.
