Bottle from Beverages and More, Mission Valley, San Diego. Very dark colour, only held up to the light can I see some brown. Very, very nice raspberry aroma. Delicious beer. Tastes like a raspberry and chocolate pie: a superb combination. Fresh and light, but a vivid flavour and a sweet aftertaste. Top notch. schm1005 (151) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2002
I really enjoyed this beer. I think the rasberry blends very well with the maltiness of this brown. Good balance of flavor between malt and fruit. Low hop profile. This is something I would like to try brewing at home. mystteria99 (2) - USA - JUL 30, 2001 does not count
unfortunetly, im not one for fruity drinks, however, if i was, this would be a winner in my book. its easy to drink, and has a delightful rasberry after taste. Braudog (6678) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2004
Deep brown with huge tan head. Robust berry aroma ... nicely rounded-out lightly bittered beer with the raspberry topping. Well done in the style that I usually don't dig too much. dwyerpg (6078) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 24, 2005
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.

Pours dark brown with a good sized tan head. This stuff tastes like a chocolate covered raspberry. Goes down smooth but fills you up fast. I was surprised of how good this was. Oscbert (1297) - Lincoln, California, USA - JAN 16, 2012
~Light chocolate malt and caramel with tart raspberry.
~Pours a beautiful garnet with small lasting creamy brownish head.
~Subtle hint of chocolate and caramel in flavor with lots of refreshing tart raspberry..
~Med body, med CO2, refreshing, abrupt sweet finish.
~Not what I was expecting. I was expecting something sweet and syrupy. This has great balance and is very refreshing. This is one I could enjoy on a cold winter night or a hot summer day. BRASTA (8) - USA - SEP 14, 2006 does not count

Bomber from the grocery store. Aroma is strong in real raspberries; also, chocolate, dark bread crust, licorice. Pours dark brown but looks clear ruby red in the light; has a medium beige head that falls into a ring after a minute. Taste starts out faintly sweet and roasty before leading into a dry finish. Wow, what a nice surprise. I’ve been passing this beer up on the store shelves for years. I never thought it would amount to much. I’m glad I finally picked it up. loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 3, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2004 Dark brown color (transparent) with a generous off-white thick creamy head. The aroma was pure raspberries...strong, sweet, and tart. The flavor was a delightful mix of tart raspberries, chocolate, and roasted nuts. Crisp, refreshing feel (not expected in such a heavy looking brew.) Wonderful fruit beer. The whole thing comes off very well.
