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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Black pour, moderate tan head, decent lacing/retention. Aroma is raspberry, chocolate, licorice, light roast, light caramel, light darker fruit notes. Medium to full bodied, sweet raspberry chocolate flavor. Kind of pricey but would make a nice dessert beer.

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle, with a thick wax cap. Pours as you’d expect, dark as night. The head is but a thin whisper. The aroma is a bit different, clearly having some sweet component, but mixed with what promises to be a robust alcohol aspect, too. The beer drinks with a sharp burn, to be sure, but there’s a nice berry swirl in here too. Delivers like a rich, warm dessert, pleasant to the soul. Well done. (#5224, 8/28/2013)

StefanSD (2218) - Lakeside, California, USA - AUG 14, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours a black color with a small khaki colored head that soon recedes to a fine ring. The aroma features a bit of raspberry, licorice and chocolate. The taste is baking chocolate, chocolate liqueur, anise and a hint of berries on the back end. The palate is full and a bit oily with soft carbonation. Finishes long with lingering dark bitter chocolates. Overall: Kind of underwhelmed by this one, I really wanted a more robust raspberry flavor.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. 2012 vintage. A pitch black beer, although with a faint brownish hue when the light enteres in the right angle. Finger-thick light beige head. The aroma is most definitely on the dark side, with molasses, roasted malts, licorice notes and a faint berry hint. Full-bodied, softly carbonated and slightly warming on the palate. Some raspberry in the very end, else it’s missing. I’d most definitely like the raspberries to be more evident, but it’s a nice imp stout anyway. A tad too dry maybe. 130813.

Ktwse (2950) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2013
Pours black with low tan head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma of molasses and raspberry - for any Swedes out there this is hallonlakritsskalle! There’s also chocolate, hints of coffee, brown sugar and dark fruit. Taste is initially raspberry sweet but this is soon dwarfed by coffee and chocolate bitterness that lingers pretty much forever. Body is medium and creamy. This one is not very balanced, unfortunately.
