Bottle @ "Schouskjelleren", Oslo. October 23, 2014.
Beer enjoyed from a tulip glass.
Black in color with a beige brown head and medium carbonation.
Raspberries up front with dark chocolate,coffee and some roasted malt aroma.
Tastes fruity with raspberries,malt and dark chocolate.
Easy drinkable beer and quite hidden ABV.
The beer ends with a slightly bitter finish.
Descent Stout,but way to much fruit and raspberries for my taste.

Pours dark reddish brown with quickly dissipating khaki head. Not much aroma, faint chocolate and raspberry. Taste is tart and somewhat robust raspberry followed by dark chocolate that lingers nicely. Gets better by the sip, very tasty.

Black pour from 22oz bottle. Thick with brown ring of head. The raspberry aroma is subtle - the taste is massive. Chocolate and creamy. A thick beer. Almost syrupy. Very good. Christpuncher (3251) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2014

Black pour with an espresso head that fades quick. Aroma of raspberries. Big thick mouth. Chocolate covered Raspberry flavor with a tartness at the very end. Very satisfying. Chocolate is sweet, raspberry is tart, which play very well. Fresh fruit notes. Raspberry is slightly medicinal, but not overwhelming. Drinks real easy for 10.5%.

Nice appearance: beady head and lace, solid retention. Razzy aroma, roasty, chocolatey, a touch of booze. Works better than expected; pretty good but it's no Lindley Park. jackl (8423) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle via trade. New batch. Deep brown with a small head. Very strong raspberry coulis. Raspberry jam. Very bright and aggressive raspberry character. Some dark chocolate and nutella. Frankly, the flavor’s verysimilar. Slight earthy roast malt. Some acid, coffee. Plenty of raspberry, fruit by the foot. Medium body, soft carb. Drinks pretty well for the chunky ABV. Tasty. charule (2297) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 30, 2014

Cellared 750 ml. bottle, shared and poured to snifters showing a dark, mahogany color, with a decent layer of tan head foam, and clingy spots of lacing. The nose was moderately roasted, cocoa, treacle, dark fruit, and some raspberry jam. Medium+ bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was similar notes, with some syrupy stickiness, nicely melded alcohol, plus a distinct and lingering tartness. A tasty, cordial-like Stout.
