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.

Bottle: Dark brown pour with an ample brown head. Nice aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, and lightly hoppy. Tastes rich with lightly bittersweet cocoa, more roasted malt, a bit of florals, and a mild raspberry flavor that compliments the taste rather than taking center stage. Finishes with a nice amount of floral hops and chocolate malt. Smooth and creamy mouthful. Nice.

0,65l bottle @ Leijuva Lahna. Deep brown color, red highlights. Fruity notes with roasted malts and red fruit. Oaky flavor, bitter espresso finish. Not my favorite example of the style.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, nice head. Starts intense malty, oily, earthy, rusty. Light smokey hints. Also hints of liquorice and black coffee. Light bitterness. Only very light raspberry notes. Warming finish. Not bad.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was raspberry and dark malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium roasted malt aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of roasted malt and raspberry. An OK brew just nothing special.

Nicely coloured black beer with a medium head that disappears after a short while.Taste is good with hints of coffee, smoked malt and raspberry, but aftertaste is too bitter.

stevoj (3026) - 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.
