RBESG pt 18. Moncada. Grand Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, small bubbly pale tan head. Palate is light and dry. Mild fine carbonation. Unsweet raspberry over very mild dark malts. Touch of floralness. Crisp dry finish. Sounded interesting but missed the mark for me.

Scopey (8515) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. It pours dark brown with small light tan head. The nose is sweet rapsberry, strawberry ice-cream, red fruits and light roast. The taste is bitter-sweet, toasty, coffee, tart raspberry, creamy, wood, roasted malt, ash and burnt wood with a dry finish. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Decent balance. Solid.

MrBunn (2536) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2014
750 mL bottle. Pours a deep brown with a medium-sized tan head and aromas of coffee, faint fruit. As it pours I could see there is a reddish hue to the color in the light, but in a full glass you can’t tell. Flavor swirls around a bit... sometimes it is very raspberry heavy, other times it is very stouty and chocolatey. Body and mouthfeel are both medium and it has pretty lively carbonation. I hoped this would be solid like this, but feared it could be a cloying and awful mess. It’s good!

tectactoe (3081) - Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
Bottle: Thanks, Jason. Deep brown, not quite black, topped with an off-beige head that wastes no time receding to a thin collar. Aroma has light raspberry purée, just a touch jammy with timid notes of dry cocoa & faint must underneath. Not getting much coffee from the nose. Taste also is more chocolate than coffee, with some mildly milky, sweet chocolate; again, some raspberry purée & jam notes swim throughout, leading into a moderately roasted malt finish with a light, but notable astringency. Where’s the coffee? Kind of mellow all around, still an enjoyable beer (but I’m biased towards raspberries) but my hopes were a touch higher.

umich03jm (2552) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Pours brown with a reddish hint. Small foamy head that fades to a nice ring. Aroma is huge raspberry with some chocolate milk and light coffee. Taste is dominated by raspberry a little too much but the coffee fights its way through. Thin to medium body. Enjoyable but I’d like to taste the coffee more and a thicker body.

Bottle: The aroma consists of raspberries, coffee, and a touch of coffee. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate. The finish has moderate raspberry and light roasted coffee. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

750 ml bottle shared by zharsch at a tasting. The pour is dark brown, touch of ruby almost black with a well formed ¼ inch tan head. The aroma is fully roasted coffee, just short of charred, dark chocolate and the soft raspberry sweet fruit. Nice nose. The taste is shows some tartness from the raspberry right off, then turns to the bitter heavy roast coffee and finishes with a bit of the dark chocolate character. Subsequent tastes reverse the flavors with strong coffee flavor up front, with the raspberry fading to the back. The palate is medium to full bodied, soft creamy carbonation and the roast in the finish. This was interesting, though the coffee flavors didn’t totally “pop” for me. Would have preferred a more straightforward stout with the raspberry. Regardless, was very happy to have tried this - cheers Zach.

EtTuCthulhu (1328) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - SEP 8, 2013
The aroma of this brew is a indulgent mixture of coffee, raspberry, and chocolate malts, and the appearance fuses a nearly opaque reddish black color with a large light tan head. The taste is very pleasing due to the balance of mild sweetness, slight coffee bitterness, slight umami, and touch of sour tartness. The palate is also blended nicely, especially with how the full body, slick texture, average carbonation, and the finish that is just an extension of the flavor complement the heavenly taste.
