Bottle. Poured normal stout color with small weak head. Aroma starts off pure coffee bean then comes some rasberry and slight chocolate notes. Creamy texture. Medium light body for a stout. Light bitter, Light sweet. Just slightly chaulky. A bit watery. Pretty much roasted dark malt and coffee in the taste. Decent stuff. JohnnyPlaga (13) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 6, 2013
DuClaw Chocolate Raspberry Stout:
A little too carbonated and not enough head. The flavors were good, but far too subtle. Seemed watered down.

This poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was os strong artificial raspberry candy and chocolate. Taste was similar, very sweet and cheap candly like. Not very good.

On draft at the Porch Restaurant, Myerstown, PA for the ELCO class of 1983 30th HS reunion. This is a perfect desert beer. Rich semi-sweet chocolate raspberry is my choice in lieu of cake.

Trade extra. Kind of a dingy brown pour, with some brightish tints in there that I presume are from the fruit additions. Mild baker’s chocolate and candied fruit in the nose, along with a muted coffee. Mouthfeel a bit thin, a bit papery. Flavors quite understated, with fruit thankfully just a modest addition to the generally dry stout feel of the brew. Okay, but a bit faded and indistinct. ryanscourt (1456) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Strong chocolate malt smell. Maybe a hint of fruit on the nose but cocoa dominates the experience. Sharp bitter cocoa flavor with slight lingering raspberry. Pretty quick body with not a ton of complexity. lacks a large punch. Not too bad. Smooth chocolate flavors. Raspberry is nice and not overpowering.

Mild raspberry taste. Chocolate helps. Doesn’t immaculate me too much. I’m satisfied and happy. Would drink again
