Bottled (shared by brunnsbe, thanks!). Very deep amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is mild ashes, some toasted notes raspberries and also some strange sweetish notes. Flavor is raspberries, ashes, some roasted malts, mild red berries as well as some slight toffeeish notes.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Dark mahogany color with creamy beige head. Very light aroma of roasted malt. The mouthfeel is dry and dusty, with some roasted malt flavor, very light raspberry touch, light acidity: ordinary bitterness.
Not a bad beer, but just I can’t see an interest here.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Dark brown, thin head. Chocolate and raspberries...sweet and malty and dessert-like. The body has this character...a bit thin but otherwise fruity and chocolatey...not bad but just needs a bit more residual sugar to pump up the body.

Bottle. Pours dark clear reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate raspberry aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium chocolate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a fruity drinkable beer.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle. Deep brown beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is a little bit chewy with a lots of dark malts topped by sweet raspberry. There is a light tartness in front of the sweet chocolate character. It’s got a fairly strong raspberry flavour as it starts to warm up. Tastes like chocolate covered raspberries. The body is a little bit thin, but it’s not a bad beer.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2007
Draft at Doc Willoughby’s in Kelowna. very dark brown almost black body with a good creamy beige head. Muted raspberry aroma with mocha roast malt undertones. Flavour has a large, artificial raspberry character. Reminds me of milkshake flavouring, or the syrups they add to gourmet coffees. Underlying beer notes take a secondary role to the raspberry. Average to medium palate. Interesting, but a bit unbalanced.

DuffMan (6514) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
Clear brown pour with a modest short lived head. Aroma of chocolate with undertones of raspberry jam. Palate is equal portions chocolate and caramel malt and raspberry essence. Quite thin unfortunately. I agree with Crit that there is no way that this can be their Spy Porter. It just comes across as too thin and with no roast. Still not bad.
