In short: An original blend of roasted sweet nutty malts and raspberries tartness. Great and inventive.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Dark amber body topped by a medium beige head
In long: Nose has a lot of raspberries and some brownies. Taste is a successful risky blend of flavours that I don’t think I have ever experienced in a beer. On one side you have a lot of crunchy toasted nutty malts, hazelnuts, brownies, brown sugar sweetness. On the other side you have a lot (and I mean A LOT) of tart acidic raspberries. The attack is initially sweet and nutty and quickly the raspberries take over and the beer ends with the tart acidic finish. I didn’t think this blend of flavours could work. Not only does it work but it is excellent. Great beer that gets a few extra points for originality. Wicked beer, I briefly lost my ability to speak. Although it might have been due to the half large-size flatbread pizza I was trying to cram in my month at once. I don’t know. The important thing is I was drinking a great beer and eating a great pizza while you were not.

On tap at the brewpub in Burlington VT. Pour is murky dark brown. Taste is malty, lighter than a stout with nice rasp tang. A lot like southern tier raspberry porter.
