Brown pour, creamy head. Aroma is lots of raspberry and light coffee. Flavor hits with lots of raspberry, light coffee, bitter finish. Good stuff.

On tap at GTMW. Poured deep brown with a very nice cap of dark beige head. The aroma was led by enjoyable roasted coffee, with chocolate and nutty complements.. warm and well-balanced, with little raspberry evident on the nose. The flavor found hefty roasted coffee again, with raspberry puree well-integrated throughout.. some meaty character on the middle and tart seeds on the edges.. finished with more delicious raspberries and dry-roasted coffee.. loved it! Medium-bodied, dry, and grainy on the palate.. moderate carbonation.. OK flow.. I’d gladly drink this again!

8/11/12. GTMW. Deep brown pour, basically black, with a nice tan head that sticks. Nice smooth roasted coffee and milk chocolate on the aroma with bits of raspberry, though not overwhelming. More coffee and chocolate in the flavor with a more solid dose of the raspberry. All in all, it’s a pretty tasty combination.

750 ml bottle from Culinaria, which used to have a nice craft beer section. Pours a hazy mud brown color with some moderate ruby highlights and a small tan head. Initial aroma of coffee, raspberries, and toasted chocolate malts, but as it warms, it loses almost all hints of raspberries and smells more like coffee grounds than fresh coffee beans- kind of like what happens with coffee itself. Flavor of coffee, raspberries, and burnt toast. Initially very acidic in the mouth, there isn’t much beyond these three notes. It mellows out as it warms, but once again loses the raspberry in favor of roasted coffee and toasted oats. Some chocolate and earth, too. Medium-bodied, with a mouthfeel that shifts from acidic to roasty and carbonation that is initially sharp but settles into a more average level. Lingering roast in the finish. It probably didn’t help that I had this a few nights after the Goose Island Black Cat BCS, but this is a little harsh on the palate and the coffee drowns out most other notes. Still, not a bad beer and an admirable effort.

BBB63 (5743) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Bottle shared by Shawn at our little tasting: Deep brown with a small frothy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of raspberries, chocolate, vanilla, walnut, tobacco, cold pressed coffee, and some ashy and metallic esters. The taste has fake and artificial raspberry syrup tone over lightly acidic city roasted coffee. There is some bready, nutty and toasted malt, hint of charred black malts and herbal hop bitterness, quite flabby and unfocused, ashy finish. The mouth feel is thin, lively and smooth. Disappointing, the worst beer of the evening by a long shot. I just do not get the ratings for this beer, perhaps when not tasted around other far superior stouts it may have a chance to impress a bit more, who knows.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of coffee, raspberry, roasting, and a hint of chocolate. Poured very dark brown in color with a small to medium-sized, creamy, dense, brown head that lasted throughout. Opaque. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of malt, raspberry, slight coffee, and light chocolate. Medium body. Slick, creamy, then slightly sticky, and lightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Raspberry, slight coffee, light chocolate, and light malt finish is medium sweet and lightly dry. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Strykzone (4478) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Bought at the Ladue Schnucks. This is currently the "hot" beer in St. Louis. Very dark black with a three finger tan head. Decent retention. Aroma is raspberry with coffee underneath. The flavor is a good balance of the two. The coffee offers deep roasted flavor. The coffee is not big but is still a robust coffee. Raspberry adds a bit of tartness and even some bitterness that resembles a hopped effect. I was curious how the brewers would manage this balance but they did a nice job.

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.

Thanks to Josh for sharing. Pours a deep almost black with a small bubbly tan head. Aroma of earthy roasted malt, raspberry there rather up front as well, coffee is there. Smells like a cup of raspberry coffee. Flavor of the same mix of coffee/raspberry/chocolate. Dry and a bit too thin. Body is lacking.
