3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Weakest raspberry porter ever. Light on the raspberry, light on the porter, like maybe if an excellent raspberry porter was blended with Mic Ultra.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Ruby brown with a white head. Aroma is raspberry, chocolate, caramel. Medium-light bodied, a little thin, fruity on the palate with only a hint of roast. Taste is raspberry, caramel, hint if chocolate. Not bad but I would have liked a little more substance.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by DanielCoor Dec 2013. Pours brown to dark brown in color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, fruity raspberry, a splash of black coffee, earthy notes. Another beer where it is just too thin and watery on the flavor. Maybe if there were more body it would work.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle shared by DanielCoor- thanks, Danny! Pours a clear, dark brownish amber color with a small khaki head. Aroma of raspberries, nuts, chocolate, toast, and brown sugar. The flavor is a toastier version of the same; the raspberry leans more sweet than tart and is subtle throughout. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Not bad to try but not sure I’d order one.
