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 the Knick. Chocolate covered raspberry truffles with light carbonic tang, light melon, coffee, and toffee. Dark black opaque with creamy light tan lacing head. Medium chewy body with medium carbonation and light alcohol warming. Starts sweet with tons of roasted malt, light coffee, a hint of smoke, some raspberries, and a nice finish of nutty bitterness at the end.

Really floral, berry smell. Overpowering raspberry flavor. Jet black pour with almost no head. The initial taste gets milder while the back end raspberry gets stinger. Different but not great.

Black color. The aroma is not very strong. There are hints of chocolate. The taste is slightly bitter. Body is light and fluffy. There is a hint of raspberries on the finish, but it’s barely there for me. Overall a nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at the W&C Ballas open house. It poured a dark brown color with a brown head. The aroma was of roasted malt, cocoa and lightly hoppy. The taste was lightly bittersweet cocoa, more roasted malt, a bit of florals and a mild raspberry aftertaste. This was very nice.

Surprising Hop aroma,,not much else. Smokey ebony color...dark brown head. Complex flavor up front. Smokey sweet chocolate, with hints of vanilla, and spice. Not big on raspberry but I like that...not over-the top. Finishes with a bitterness that lingers somewhat too long.

Tap at Valhalla.. Pour is dark black with a light off white head. Aroma is raspberry, chocolate, roasted malt, coffeee. Taste is sweet chocolate with a nice dark fruit compliment. Very sticky and oily in the mouth. Viscous. Like syrup. Overall average brew. Clever and creative. Too sticky and thick.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Draft at Moriartys. Tulip. Opaque pour with a nice foamy tan head that mostly disappears. Nose is funky and medicinal. Burnt stout notes with some deep dark raspberry flavors. Charcoal. Leather. Asphalt. Cigars. Red fruit vegemite. Black pepper. Cloves. Smoked chocolate blackberries. High ABV not hidden. Spicy finish. Impressive range of dark flavors. Raspberry is certainly present but does not dominate. Much more a juicy bitter stout.
