3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Gator Beverage. Pours dark brown to black with one finger kahki head. Looks thin for the style, but maybe just me eyes playing tricks. Aroma is roasted grains, bit of chocolate, and what smells like rotted fruit. I got a similar aroma from Dark Horse Tres. Pretty thick mouthfeel. Roasted chocolate up front, followed by some radpberry, then finishes with lots of bittersweet chocolate. This is not nearly as offensive as Tres and the raspberry provides a subtle flavor that doesnít linger too much. Medium carbonation and a pretty good beer. Expected this to be very sweet, but it is more bitter than sweet. Maybe feuit is better for a sweet stout. I still donít think the fruit helps anything. This seems like an excellent base stout with no need for it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is chocolate, dark malt, soy, a hint of tart raspberry. Appearance is imperial stout with a two finger cocoa head. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Imperial stout flavors first, chocolate and roasted malt. The raspberry appears mid palate, briefly, mostly skin and seeds, and fades quickly. The raspberry flavor is very natural and subtle. Thereís no artificial raspberry blast. Itís very different and enjoyable. The finish, however, is astringent and dry. The middle was good, the ending left a little to be desired.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours very dark, tan head. Smells very chocolatey, smokey. Tastes smokey, thick, chocolate, no sign of raspberries...extreme mocha finish. Really good though I cannot taste raspberries, thatís deceiving.
