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 @ Chuck’s. This isn’t going to be fair, because this was on tap at the same tIme as Parabola... at any rate, pours a deep black though notably thin in body which I’ve noticed wIth Widmer stouts before. No fruit aroma. Nice dark malts, but not as rich as you might hope. Smooth kinda sweet finish. The raspberry sounds like a great idea and obviously needs to be done in moderation, but this is barely perceptible.

stevoj (2835) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 5, 2015
Bottle from Berts. Tastes more like a chocolate covered raspberry than a stout. Aroma is all berries, taste brings in subtle roast malts, but berries still dominate. Sweet and a bit of fruit on the finish.

angelkostvo (878) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 15, 2015
Black colour, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, burned sugar, a bit of tart raspberries, hops, bitter chocolate. Taste is a bit weird, it has some soy sauce flavour... otherwise its medium bitter, slightly sour, slightly sweet a bit salty. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. I was expecting a lot more.
