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.

Tasted by the Cannery Row Beer Club. We were a little disappointed that the raspberry was so hard to taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Let’s call it dark brown with reddish highlights, nice beige head that fades quickly, nice lacing. Raspberry aroma is noticeable right away. Mild chocolate and coffee flavors, with a sweet fruity finish, almost "winey". Very nice. Thanks to Jerry in Minnesota for this.

En bouteille le 15.02.16 L’ajout de framboise n’est pas forcément présent ni ŕ l’odeur ni au gout. Un peu déçu pour le prix mais une bonne stout en soi

beerplace (226) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2016 Vintage 2012. Dark fruits and roasted (or even burnt) malt in the aroma with a touch of tar and alcohol (a little bit). Soft, slightly sour taste with a touch of berries. Alcohol is well hidden. Burnt malt in a long dry aftertaste with some berries notes at the end. Good.

hotstuff (4716) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2016
Rated on 7-28-2015 (22 oz. bottle - Limited Edition No. 8) The appearance presents a medium sized light brown head that mostly diminished, opaque dark brown body, fast rising carbonation on the sides of the glass, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is roasted, malty, chocolate, caramel, and faint raspberry. The flavor is lightly bitter, roasted, chocolate, coffee, sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable beer, but the taste of it is not to my liking.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium brown head. Aromas of toffee, dark fruits, malt, raspberries, sweet licorice, perfume, roast. Taste is bitter roasty, bitter, sweet raspberries in the back, sweet licorice, dry chocolate. Actually pretty decent.

Marduk (5332) - Reval, ESTONIA - NOV 12, 2015
Tap @Olutexpo 2015. Very dark brown color. Medium size, brown head, stays. Looks nice. Sweet, roasted malts, very faint fruits in aroma. Alcohol, deep roast, chocolate and tiny bit of fruits in taste. Long lasting roasted malts and chocolate in aftertaste. You were bit cheap with raspberries. But maybe that’s a good thing? Didn’t ruin a good stout. Very easy to drink. Proper brew.

Keg (OlutExpo2015) (6:4+:6+:4:14-=3.4+)
Very nice roast aroma, a fair bit of soy. Raspberry is present, but soft. Light palate, saying more like 6.5% than 9.3%, but still nicely full and stout. Great roast in the taste, nice level of burntness, no harshness. Finish roasty and feels a little dry, possibly aided by the raspberry, which barely pokes out at all as a flavour.
