Bottle at Bolime tasting 3/2016. Clear very dark colour. Raspberry only very very lightly present in the very beginning of the flavour. Otherwise it is a boldly roasty RIS with lots of coffee and alcoholish bourbon-kind warmth and flavour. Very good.

Tasted by the Cannery Row Beer Club. We were a little disappointed that the raspberry was so hard to taste.

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 à l’odeur ni au gout.
Un peu déçu pour le prix mais une bonne stout en soi

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
