COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bid farewell to winter’s cruel tyranny with the creamy, bittersweet dark chocolate flavors and fresh raspberry tartness of Alberta Clipper Porter. Named for the intense winter storms that sweep the Midwest and Great Lakes Regions, making us all a little tougher (and a lot colder), Alberta Clipper is the perfect treat to celebrate the return of milder weather and kiss those wintry winds goodbye… at least for a little while.

radagast83 (8533) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2017
Draft pour at Great Lakes Brewing. Poured a really dark brown color, almost black, but not quite. Aroma was roasted malts, but front and center is an aroma that is like a raspberry cordial. Flavor has a ton of chocolate-covered raspberries. Dark chocolate. Really nice, but more of a desert-type of a beer.

MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, black-brown with a 3-finger tan head and fair lacing. Aroma of raspberries, plums, dark fruit, caramel, roasted malt and mild cocoa. Taste of raspberries, bittersweet chocolate, cola and roasted malt. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor. Dark, plummy body with thin, tan head. Nose is floral, fruits, plums and malts. Taste is malts and fruits and chocolate. Nice raspberry notes. Punchy, alcy finish.

3.4
Nuffield (4202) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 30, 2016
Dark brown with a medium head. As i drank this on my patio, I forgot that I was drinking it. It’s smooth and without any of the medicinal notes mentioned by others. Neither does it leap out with distinctive flavors, however. Just a fine beer, not moreand not less. Bottle.

3.9
Pumpkin87 (250) - - JUN 26, 2016
Pours a cola brown with orange-ed highlights and a small tan head.
Nose is chocolate, dark malt, coffee and dark fruit. Palate is as advertised, chocolate and raspberries, with spiced nuts and a whiff of smoke. Delicious.
Nice medium body; abv is 7.5 percent, but it’s mostly under wraps.

emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Pours cola brown with thin, quickly receding head. Aromas of bittersweet chocolate, raspberries, cocoa, roast malts. Taste is chocolate, raspberry, almost saccharin sweet. Decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3
jflopsu (1842) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Pours a dark brown with light tan head. A chocolate, coffee and light dark fruit malt aroma. A interesting flavor that is almost a little spicy with bitter chocolate, roasted malts, and some dark fruits. A lingering bitter chocolate and roasted malt aftertaste.

4.4
SPDickerman (1315) - Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Pours ruby dark brown with a small brown head. Smells of raspberry and chocolate. Taste follows the nose: raspberry and chocolate, with a subtle hint of roast. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Great Lakes Alberta Clipper finishes with a mild raspberry tone.
