At Hopishop 2017. Aroma of chocolate, raspberry and some caramelised malt. Taste has nice fruity raspberry, creamy chocolate, sugary ripe fruit and malt. Nice. beerplace (1960) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2017
750ml bottle at Brian's office. Pours a redish dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is quite pleasant with raspberries and chocolate notes. Similar taste. Not bad, but a bit artificial. dorain (519) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2017
Aus der Flasche im 2017-09 getrunken. Ein Himbeerstout also! Gut in der Nase ist eine feine Milchschokolade mit deutlicher, aber gut dosierte Himbeernote. Am Gaumen bilden diese beiden Aromen ein tolles Paar das es einer Himbeer-Yogurette gleicht. Toll ist das das verwendete Himbeerpüree ohne die Himbeerkerne auskommt und so keine Bitterkeit entsteht wie man sie von einer Frambiose kennt. Auch kommt keine Säure auf. Ein wirklich feines Stout. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2017
Tasting at Matt’sazzurro (380) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2017
Brown color, beige large head. The aroma is terrible, like cheap chocolate with artificial berry flavoring, bubblegum, butterscotch; they sell some strawberry truffles at Urban Fare that would smell like this; nothing positive comes to mind, artificial dominates. The body is lean, it has some chocolate flavor, berry syrups, some raspberry tartness and woodyness in the final.
Shared this one with my wife last night. I had given it to her as a birthday present (I’m such a great guy). This one is like drinking a raspberry-chocolate pie. They got the perfect dark chocolate and raspberry taste. Impressive. Even the drink has a red tint in it. A very good dessert drink.

Sample during the "Beer Inventory Reduction and Get Together" tasting on 07/03/2017. Clear dark brown color with a medium beige head that recedes steadily to a film. Small patches of lacing. Roast malt, chocolate and berries in the nose. Medium body with flavors of chocolate malt, tart raspberry and vanilla. The finish is creamy with a chocolate and raspberry aftertaste. Above average overall. fiery1 (1587) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2017
750ml bottle @ Matt’s. Spring CANBIF 2017, thanks byronic. Pours a dark brown colour with a thin frothy white head. Nose is quite the synthetic raspberry chocolate note, more so like those strawberry marshmellow candies. Flavour is pretty much the same... the synthetic feel prevails to cheap halloween candies, which sadly doesn’t offend me too much. Gerbeer (3896) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2017
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with light bubbly head. Aromas of sweet red fruit and chocolate. Flavors of super sugary strawberry candies out of a cheap box of chocolates. Needs more stout and less sugary fruit flavoring. Ferris (16302) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2017
Bottle - Raspberry and chocolate, like the many Christmas chocolates. Clearish brown with a decent beige head. Artificial and a bit thin. Oakes (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 26, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 Medium brown. Raspberry on the nose, with some artificial chocolate stuff as well. On the palate, it’s not that bad, though the artificial character is not great. The raspberry does ok, the cocoa stuff isn’t all that great, but for me the base beer jsst needs quite a bit more sweetness and body to make it work.
