22 oz bottle - pours deep mahogany with medium-large tan head, slight crimson highlights, fully diminishing with decent lacing. Raspberry chocolate in the nose (duh) with hints of hay and grain. Raspberry aromas become more pronounced as temperature warms. Medium-full palate with tastes of light bitter chocolate, creamy long finish. Not too heavy, just right.

Looks and smells like dark chocolate in a glas. The raspberry aroma and taste didn’t come through too much, but I’m okay with that.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark ruby brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate and berry aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet toasted malt and fruit flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color with a two finger beige head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind.
Deeply roasted, almost acrid dark malt aroma with hints of burnt toast, dark chocolate, oatmeal, stale coffee and cigarette. Not picking up any fruit. Smells pretty harsh and one dimensional.
Medium body with very tight carbonation. Lots of deeply roasted, burnt dark malt dominating the flavor with raspberry sweetness in the finish. Hints of burnt toast, coffee, dark chocolate and oatmeal making it a bit acrid and overly roasted before the raspberry sweetness comes in. Very intense and in dire need of some more sweetness to balance things out. JaBier (7972) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle shared by a friend. Dark brown pour with a medium tan head. Strange plasticky aroma with some chocolate, roast and raspberry. Malty and chocolatey flavor with raspberry in the finish. Drake (13737) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2012
