4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg @ Wedge during RBWG, Asheville. Deep brown pour with a tight tan head. Wonderfully rich chocolate truffle cake drenched in raspberry coulis. Decadent flavor. Dessert in a glass. Chocolate malts, rich roast. Slightly tart dark fruits and wood. Smooth coffee creamer. Full body, rich. Overall, Foret Noire was very similar to this. Chocolate and tart dark fruits aren’t a novel matching of flavors, but damn it works.

Draft at Wedge during RBWG. Pours dark brown to black in color with a smallbeige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, big raspberry, some earthy bitterness to the finish. Pretty solid, maybe not as full bodied as I would like, but good flavor.

@ Wedge Brewing / Asheville NC --- Opaque brown/black with a good brown head cover, dots of lace. Taste is roasted caramel malt that keeps on giving. Full sweet malt all the way through to a smidgen of bittering deep in the finish. Very satisfying, easy to drink. Recommended.

Nitro draft to taster at Wedge during RBWG. Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with foamy light beige head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, and mild raspberries. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel with a mildly pleasant raspberry bite. Good beer.
