COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Celebrating 20 years of remarkably good taste! Characterized by a medium-body & dry well-balanced finish, this deep brown porter brewed with Dutch cocoa and pure raspberry extract evokes chocolate, caramel and fresh tart raspberries. Keeping our specialty product cool, still & dark pays rewards in flavor changes over the next year or more.

omhper (18970) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2009
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Black, small beige head. Lightly roasty. Thecocoa and raspberry shows up early. Medium bodied withclean, rounded mouthfeel. Juicy raspberry meets coffee. Dry, slightly citric notes of berries. Fairly low bitterness. A well balanced yet unusual beer staying wel outside of the mainstream (no bourbon barel in sight here!). After the initial confusion I start to really like this!

bhensonb (10359) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle from Beer Geek. Pours opaque brown/black. Half-finger tan head that left quickly. Aroma of ancient raspberries. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very raspberry, accompanied by chocolate. As time goes by, it actually tastes much like a raspberry chocolate truffle - though bitter, not sweet. Finishes in a good way that I can’t begin to describe. Sort of vinous, a bit sour. Ok. I can begin. Wow, if this is 4 years old. Or if it isn’t! Buy one before they go away.

Tmoney99 (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2009
Bottle from Keg Liquor. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate raspberry, coffee and chocolate malty aroma. Medium body with a sticky smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark chocolate fruity flavor with medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

Lubiere (9440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2007
Clear deep dark porter with reddish hues and a thick moka head. Aroma of raspberry jam, and chocolate spread, and fresh black roasted coffee. In mouth, a lightly sour porter, due to the fruits, with light bitter chocolate, an interesting marriage. Tasted Jan 2007, with probstk.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2006
Bottle... Hard, black pour creates a small, fizzy, lightly tanned head. Chocolatey, fruity nose. Well-balanced flavor. Lots of cocoa and raspberries. Tangy, bordering on pungent... Flemish porter? Medium-bodied with a tannic mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Lengthy, tart, dry finish. Maybe a little brett in there. Thanks go out to WBC for the bottle!

Poured a dark brown with red tints at the edges and an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate and raspberries. Tastes of tart raspberries with some chocolate in the background. Semi-sweet balance to the tartness. Lighter body. Lots of lacing left on the glass.
