4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an opaque black with one finger tan & ruby head with moderate lacing. Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of raspberry. Up front you can taste dark chocolate, roasted malt, oatmeal with a hint of citrus hops. The raspberry taste hits you in the end. Long smooth finish. Full bodied, creamy with soft carbonation. I give a huge thumbs up to Schlafly and culinaria for this one.

Bottle. Looks as you’d want it to, thick and frothy. Complex aroma. But this is a bit of an overly complex thing ... the coffee is definitive. The raspberry tastes like puree or cheap jelly rather than whole fruity. And in the end, it doesn’t come off as well as it could. (#5859, 11/15/2014)

9th August 2014
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.
