4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle from Pickís poured into an English Pint. Pours a dark black with about 2 fingers of tan head. Stars with a strong aroma of raspberry with a slightly less strong aroma of coffee to finish it out. Taste is light sweet, light sour and medium bitter. Starts with a sweet and sour raspberry but ends huge with strong black coffee. Medium bodied with a thick and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, itís a very good beer. Perfect for drinking hanging out around a bonfire this time of year. Something worth seeking out.

Pours pitch black with a tiny light beige head. Smells of raspberry and coffee. Taste is tart raspberry and bitter, dark roasted coffee. Medium to full bodied, smooth texture, light mouth-carbonation, Schlafly Raspberry Coffee Stout finishes with a touch of tartness and bitterness.

Pours pitch with a dark head. Aroma is amazing, rich coffee notes, fresh raspberry aroma, and a bit of pepper. Flavor is tobacco, coffee, fresh fruit, toast, and dark chocolate. Very well balanced, neither the coffee or the fruit overwhelm. A standout.

Large head, off white, great lacing, mostly diminishing, dark black color. Fruity aroma. Raspberry/chocolate flavor medium to full body. Great desert beer.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted 12/02/10. 750ml Capped bottle. Deep thick brown with slight rudy red highlights. Finger width of light khaki head. Definite aromas of raspberries! Undertones of fudge and toasty malts. On the fuller side of medium bodied. The mouthfeel is nice. The sweet and bitter blast of raspberries hits the palate immediately and blots out the rest of the ingredients and flavors. Luckily, this overt berry note ebbs and melds wonderfully with the chocolate and coffee nuances of the stout backbone. Definitely estery with the coffee astringency and dark chocolate bitterness playing supporting roles. Bright effervescence that accents both the acidity of the coffee and the tartness of the raspberries. This beer sways through the palate between the sweet and sticky to the bitter and astringent. Great roll of the palate and the flavors really go together quite nicely. Great dessert beer! But what can I say, Iím a Fanboy!

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.. Iíd gladly drink this again!

Pours very dark brown with a nice dense sturdy tan head. The aroma definitely shows both the raspberry and coffee - nice blend with neither overpowering the other. There is some smooth roasted malt hiding the the back, but the additives are what shine through. Medium smooth body with very gently carbonation thatís there, but not very assertive. The taste starts off with a smooth coffee flavor, cream, light roast of the malt, just enough raspberry to offset the coffee from taking over too much. Iím not a coffee fan, but this seems like much better than normal coffee. The finish adds a bit of bitterness and a hint more of raspberry. Nice beer, Iíd want a lot more if I was a coffee fan. So it goes. I wonder if Iím a fanboy??

Thanks to the Atlanta Crew for sharing this one. Pours red-brown with a tan head. Nose is dark cherry, coffee, brown sugar, and bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is similar with berries all over the place, coffee mild in the background, and a bit of cocoa/ earth. Interesting take on mixing these flavors.
