It poured a deep black color with a small bubbly tan head. The aroma was of earthy roasted malt, raspberry and coffee. The flavor was of the same mix of coffee/raspberry/chocolate. Body is lacking.

It pours a very dark opaque brown, bordering on black. Cannot see any light coming through even when holding a light behind it. Nice sized, creamy, tan head up on top of the dark base. Thin layer of lacing left behind when I swirl the glass. Not much was there before swirling though. Huge raspberry aroma. It smells like some type of raspberry tart topping. There is a very distinct coffee aroma underneath it all. Like a very dry smelling coffee. More like sniffing a used coffee filter, but not in a bad way. Got kind of a nutty aroma, maybe seeds from the berries. A little bit of alcohol also peeks in to say hello. Hello.

Big bitter front end on this puppy. After that initial shock I am greeted with a nice chocolate and coffee taste. A creamy mouthfeel with a bit of a powdery back end. Not as much raspberry in the taste as there was in the nose. I’m sure the bitterness that is there each time I drink is a little bit of raspberry and coffee. It’s not a bad thing, just a weird combination that I would not have put together. So, bitter, sweet, chocolatey, and a bit fruity. Overall a decent, albeit weird, beer. It could’ve been a whole lot worse.

Bottle pours murky brown with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of chocolate, roast malt, raspberry preserves and green coffee. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of molasses and a touch of ash. Overall body is thin and just lacking in general. Good concept without followthrough.

Live Rate! Bottle opened at Dakine’s house -- thanks! Pours a murky brown color with a ruby tint and a thin tan head. Smells awesome -- spicy chile notes from the coffee and bursting with raspberries. The flavor, however, is a complete let down. Tastes like a watered down flavored coffee, and lacks any body or alcohol. Bummer.

Dark ruby-brown pour with thin head. Light roast, fruit and coffee in the aroma. Fruity flavor with a bit of coffee on the finish. A bit thin, but pretty tasty.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2010 Thanks for Strykzone for sending me this very interesting beer. From the big 750 ml bottle this poured a very dark brown tending toward back with a nice tan head and better than average lacing. The nose is of both the raspberry and coffee in good balance. Medium body and a very smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is of malt with lots of the coffee and raspberry and moves to a bitter and raspberry finish. I am a coffee stout fan, and the raspberry add as lot to this nicely concocted beer.

(bottle) nice black with tan head. Aroma is coffee with hints of raspberry. Flavor though is dominated by the raspberry. Not as much coffee flavor as the regular coffee stout.
