On tap. Dark brown in color with a small off white head. Toffee aroma with chocolate and raspberries present. Aroma is on the sweeter side. Raspberries are right up front in the flavor with some cream as well. Finish is like smuckers raspberry jam minus the seeds.

Draft. Poured into a small goblet. Pours a very dark brown with a slightly tinged red white head. Collars around the glass. Nice smell of raspberry in he nose, not overly strog but nicely balanced with chocolate malt type aromas. The taste is a slightly tart raspberry flavor with a dark roast but creamy malt backbone. Medium mouthfeel. Good lace left on the glass. TH does it again with another awesome beer! Ends pretty cleanly.
