Sample at Founders. Like the cerise, this features the fruit flavor, but it doesn’t overwhelm. I love the regular porter so much that this kind of seemed off to me, but it’s just my bias. For those into sweet beers with fruit flavor, this is a good choice. For fans of the porter, you might as well stick with what you like, or love. badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 24, 2009

on tap at founder’s breakfast party.... dark brown, almost black pour with reddish edges and a thin circular tan head..... aroma of cocoa, chocolate, and soft red berries..... flavors or chocolate, roasted malts, a good essence of raspberries. medium carbonation and pretty good fruit flavor overall that mingles well with the base porter. not sure how many of these i would be able to drink but the one i had was pretty nice.

On tap at Founders. Opaque chocolate-brown body, thin tan head. Raspberry nose leads into rich chocolate and roasted malt notes. Rich, oily body with heavy roasted malts, chocolate, and coffee, with sweet raspberries that complement, rather than dominate, the excellent base porter. This is a fantastic beer, and I regret not picking up a growler to enjoy while typing in my rating.
