3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty good porter but I did not think the raspberries worked for it. Something I would try again, but not crave.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown/black pour with little to no head. Aroma of chocolate and hint of raspberries. Flavor of coffeee, raspberries, and some chocolate. Malty mouthfeel and smooth finish with some bitterness. Nice example of style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a cream-tan head that was somewhat small but retentive. Raspberry dominates the aroma, with a touch of smoke behind it. Medium body, medium carbonation. Raspberry again is the dominant flavor, sweet but not overly so, and there comes the mild cocoa in the flavor. Raspberry again lingers through to the finish. Nice brew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/30/10 from keenan.
brown porter color with a creamy tan head and some random spotty lacing.
The nose is full of raspberry flavoring (though it isn’t off putting) mixed with roast, lactose, a little ash, oaty dustiness and a touch of cocoa.
The flavor is much like the aroma though there is a touch of tartness on the finish from cocoa and roast. Raspberry is full on the finish and lingers in to the aftertaste along with the chocolate. Most of the time artificial is used it comes off bad… but this one works. Quite well too.
Crisp medium brown porter body. 8/3/7/3/15

Sampled at Nashville Beer Summit 1.22.11 - Raspberry tart and good fruit. Smooth. Good age on this bottle as well. Believe it was a 05-06. Very mellow. Good Shite.

Glass at Sprechers in Lake Geneva...pours dark / black with reddish tints at edges....definite raspberry nose and dominant taste. Gets better as it warms....this one will / would take a little getting used to....

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is a very drak brown, nothing distinguishing or remarkable. The head is light tan, but rises less than a finger and is gone immediately.
The aroma is awesome. Right away it reminds me of Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock with huge notes of sweet raspberries and chocolate.
The tatse doesn’t totally translate from the aroma but its pretty close. You get lots of the raspberry not much chocolate but then you become distracted by the distinct end of a traditional brown ale. I don’t really like this finish but doesn’t make me dislike the beer. If I was in the mood for a cheaper version of KRE I’d totally look this way.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz twist off bottle.
It pours a deep, dark brown/black. The head is tall and foamy and light tan. It recedes moderately quickly with some decent lacing.
The smell is pure cocoa. It has that powdered cocoa scent with a hint of plastic and soap which is odd. There is a little bit of raspberry.
The flavor is a classic american porter with a subtle tangy raspberry flavor. It is pretty good, and an upgrade form the smell. It is smooth and velvety.
A nice effort.
