Smells like raspberries, looks brown. This beer is really an enigma, in that is both quite fruity and heavy. Finish is rather thick. A good beer, but two at one sitting would probably be more than enough.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 22, 2005
Murky red brown. Small foamy off white head. Raspberry concentrate aroma. Slightly toasty and nutty malt flavors with a syrupy raspberry concentrate flavor that becomes noticable near the finish. Residual raspberry notes and some cocoa in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium, not too sticky.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2005
A reddish brown color. Raspberry is very prevalent in the nose. Syrupy-sweet raspberry flavor on top of an earthy brown ale. Good at first but disgusting at the end.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Raspberry aroma is strongest when the bottle is first cracked, or if you hang over the glass for a minute. Nice head that craters then disspates to a thin layer. Brown body with ruby hints. Hoppy, then chocolate flavors, passing away to some nuttiness. Not a lot of raspberry flavor except as a very late aftertaste.

PorterPounder (7763) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 5, 2005
22 oz bomber, Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl Pours a tea-colored brown with some ruby-red tints. Light, off-white colored head. Aroma has faint wisps of raspberry in there, smells fresh. Flavor has some sweet chocolate underlying the raspberry aling with some nuttiness. . The raspberry flavor is very natural tasting, not cloyingly sweet. One of the better fruit beers I have had in terms of blending the fruit flavor.

Many thanks to Rastacouere for this one. Raspberry aroma with notes of a weird cleanser and some metallic rust notes. Not particularly pleasing aroma. Dark amber/burgundy color with a frothy light tan head. Start is slightly tart with mild hints of raspberries. In the middle, it turns roasty, toasty and malty with chocolate tones. This is extremely well-balanced flavorwise. The raspberries work well with the chocolate and roasted malts and neither overpowers the other. This should be what brewers strive for flavorwise and balancewise when they make fruited brown ales. Unfortunately, the aroma on this beer sucks.

bomber shared with DYCSoccer17. Garnet red with a medium beige head. Lots of raspberry on the nose, and some other sweet characteristics. Thin mouthfeel, raspberry dominates, however it is not cloying. Maybe a hint of lightly roasted malt. But raspberry is the king on this one. thin, watery, but definately drinkable.

AlabastorJones (814) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2005
super lacey off white head on a deep red/brown body, smells distinctly like cotton candy, bold raspberry flavor that overwhelms anyting else that could be there, watery palate, easy going

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle poured a dark brown with a medium sized off white head. Aroma is light roast and raspberry. Flavor is roast, chocolate with raspberrys in the back. Almost like a very light bodied porter.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Armoa and flavor of raspberry fruit. Dark body but if held to light has a ruby tint to it. Off white head. Was rich and smooth on the palate. A good fruit beer.
