Dayton draft. Good combo of a friut beer and porter styles. Complex aroma and flavor of raspberry and chocolate malt that had balanced medium finish. Good brew that you can use to smoke a cigar.

Brown hue with ruby highlights, fading head and minimal lace. The nose was full raspberry juice with just a hint of roasted malts, nothing else. The taste is fruity and tart with the nutty buttery note. Some smoke upon the finish. Thin and lively feel. Arggh! Too fruity and not enough porter character.

So we are having dinner at the Dayton Brewpub and he orders the Nut Brown Ale. The waitress brings him this beer that smells and tastes distinctly of raspberrys. He complains, because he doesn't like many fruit beers, and she brings him another one. Same thing. Turns out neither the waitress not the bartender are allowed to taste anything, so they have no idea that they have the wrong keg tapped. Based on the color and flavor, we ended up drinking what we assumed to be the raspberry porter. Well, he drank most of it, I do not like fruit beers. I wanted the nut brown ale.

Based on the color and flavor, I ended up drinking what I assume to be the raspberry porter. It was a deep mahogany color with a slightly medicinal raspberry nose. Not overpowering syrup taste for a fruit beer (like that awful Pete's Winter) but a nice infusion of raspberry tartness over a solid porter. I still don't prefer fruit beers.

Nose of what? raspberry? you guessed it. The raspberry and choclate blend well together, not overbearing. Clean at he finish. Bow wow!

This mixed breed of Poodle (raspberry ale) and Boxer (old leghumper porter) produces one of those dogs thatís so ugly that itís cute. This is like a Chocolate/Raspberry truffle - save it for dessert - it doesnít go well with their tex-mex burrito! The strength of their porter is the only thing that saves this one from the kennel.

ugh. Amazingly this tastes just like the other Raspberry beer from Thirsty Dog, except it is darker and not quite as carbonated. For comments, see Thirsty Dog Raspberry Ale.

Great raspberry aroma that does not carry over to the flavor. I am guessing this is a blend of the Old Leghumper and Raspberry Ale, and it is a great breed. Roasted chocolate flavor and an excellent experience.
