UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Thanks to Tom for this. Quite tasty, like drinking a dark chocolate covered raspberry. Quite flavorful for the strength. Very rich so keep it to small doses. Sweet. Serving: bottle.

APPEARANCE - sort of black, but it’s really dark brown. NOSE - smells like a tootsie roll right out of the bottle, opens up to the slightest of raspberry hints. FLAVOR - huge dissapointment compared to the scent. I think I’d rather have the taste of fake tootsie roll beer flowing down my throat than the actual flavor. It tastes somewhat watered down, with the slightest hint if chocolate aftertaste.

thedm (5136) - Fort Wayne, USA - JUL 19, 2015
This bottled brew from a beer festival poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish with a mild chocolate aftertaste. The soft flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild citrus chocolate and dark malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Fratto (2835) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle from pikapp327. Dark pour with an off-white head. Aroma is dry, chocolate, sweet bread, and a little fruit. Taste is awkward chocolate, dry earth, and a weird finish.

colui72 (248) - HONG KONG - JUN 26, 2015
Pours very dark brown with brown head. More of a porter with many ingredients than a "fruit beer". Aroma is caramel, vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Taste is very complex and adds a sweet bready hint to the aromas. Finish is roast malts and coffee. Very good.

Lukasmh (544) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle, an awesome one! Pours bit murky with shot lasting light brown head. Aroma is milk chocolate, raspberries, freeze-dried raspberries, malt, slight toast, dry, sweet fruits. Sweet at first with raspberries, then turns more chocolaty and ends out with slight dry freeze-dried raspberries and malt. Some bready pretzels. Medium smooth body. Toasty malt dry finish. A nice surprise!

Sdaniel90 (526) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUN 16, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. Opaque dark brown with a frothy to minimal brown head. Sweet aromas of dark chocolate, raspeberry, dried fruits. Medium to robust bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Sweet with low to no bitterness. Smooth with deep chocolate and dark fruit undertones. Very rich and pleasant.

emusche (57) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Pours frothy with lasting foam head. Color is deep; almost black. Smells of chocolate, raspberry, and mocha. Taste is sweet, but not overly so. Burst of raspberry, a little saccharine but pleasant, slowly gives way to a nice, lingering chocolate aftertaste. Very smooth and pleasant. A bomber is about right for this offering; it would be difficult to go multiple beers, but overall it’s excellent.

minutemat (2496) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
75cl bottle shared @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours dark with tan head. Aroma is chocolate and raspberries. Taste is a big hit of cocoa with raspberry jellybeans on the finish. Couldn’t get much pretzel. Interesting.

One of the craziest beers I’ve had. 750ml’s was a bit much for this style but pretty decent beer overall.
