COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An extremely rich and complex beer. The addition of raspberries during the fermentation process results in an almost purplish opaque color with a beautiful brown head. Warm chocolate and roasty notes compliment the hop bitterness.

On tap at Battleship. Pours black with a thick head. Aroma is of cough syrup, raspberry, malts, slight soy sauce, and some smoke. Flavor is of malts, raspberry and chocolate. Leaves a nice raspberry chocolate malt finish. It’s much smoother than the aroma would have you believe in the beginning.

Defreni (2507) - Husum, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2014
Flaske: Kulsort let olieret øl med et flot mokkabrunt skumhoved. Duften er meget hindbærpræget som fuldtsændig overdøver den ristede malt. Smagen er en klassiske amerikansk impy men med en god del hindbær i. Fin øl.

GIJOE (592) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Pours black with a thin tan head. Nose is roasted grain and raspberry. Taste is sweet with a subtle hop bite. Raspberry comes through just a little in the taste. Medium body. Soft carbonation. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

douglas88 (5837) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 30, 2014
Bomber. Pours a pitch black color with a medium beige head. A nice fruity and yeasty nose. The flavor is chocolate, vanilla, toffee, roast, big creamy coffee, berries. Sweet raspberry. This is a solid beer. Creamy palate, metallic roast. The berries fit without being distracting.

kevinator (867) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2014
Nice and interesting. This was the 2013 version so it had some time to blend. Aroma had subtle hints of raspberry and roasted malts. The color was very dark but with faint hints of purple. Smooth and full palate with a dryness. Nice blend of tart fruits, roasted malts and wood. Hops played a part at the end. Good complex beer.

stoutnick (453) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2014
Black white foam look. Aroma is stale raspberries - weird mixture of distant fruity qualities and stoutiness. This comes out even more in the flavours - big dark malty astringency doesn’t integrate at all with the raspberry. Lots of soy sauce in this one - not a good drinker. Overall, nice try but misses it by "that much".

vonpolski (23) - Borup, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2014
Medium stout on the smooth side. It have a clear raspberry flavor. But the fruittaste is mostly in the aroma - not in the taste. Berry and coffee flavor. Good for a ’hyggelig’ evening with friend.

Bomber. Dark red brown with a light brown head and plenty of lacing. Heavy roasted malts, alcohol, bitter herbal hops and increasing raspberry flavor as it warms to room temp. Sweetens as it warms, but was quite bitter as cold. Body is heavier with a light foaminess. Substantially better at room temperature.
