UPDATED: MAR 6, 2015 Thanks to Tom for this. Quite tasty, like drinking a dark chocolate covered raspberry. Quite flavorful for the strength. Very rich so keep it to small doses. Sweet. Serving: bottle.
Decent and unique. Nice aroma that smelled like a dessert with raspberry and chocolate. Flavors worked but it was hard to detect the pretzel. Definitely more of a sipper. Lighter palate and somewhat watery. theisti (4205) - Kansas, USA - JUL 5, 2016
750 ml bottle given to me for Father’s Day by my lovely wife. The pour is a dark brown, hazed, with a bit of tan head. The aroma is mostly chocolate up front, along with some caramel malt and maybe a hint of grain that might resemble pretzel towards the end. The taste is similar to the nose, big chocolate up front, caramel and the grain. All fresh and clean. As the beer warms, pick up a bit of raspberry and traditional Rogue yeast. The palate is medium to heavy bodied soft carbonation and chocolate sweet aftertaste. Well executed. j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle at James’ cellar cleaning tasting. Pours a softly hazed brown with a thin tan head. Big chocolate and fruit, smells like a raspberry stuffed chocolate. Medium bodied, but a touch empty at the start, raspberry jam. Sweet on the finish, a touch of chocolate.

Une bière très originale mais le mariage chocolat bretzel framboise est vraiment très particulier et je n'accroche pas vraiment ... RobertDale (6851) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Sample at Waldo Hopfest 2016. Comes dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of raspberries and chocolate. Taste is raspberries, chocolate, and malt. No pretzel taste for me. Was prepared not to like this, but found it pretty good.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with tan head. Raspberry, chocolate, sweet malty aromas. Overly sweet chocolate, pretzel, raspberries Flavors. Tognetta (953) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 30, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2016 Marrom quase negro, nota-se tons avermelhados quando contra a luz, espuma marrom clara de otima formação e média/pouca persistência, aspecto cremoso. Aroma carregado de chocolate, frutas vermelhas, adocicado, licor frutado, café, bomba de chocolate, complexa. Paladar de médio dulçor, baixa torrefação. Corpo leve abaixo do esperado, assim como a carbonataçao. Final mais para chocolate amargo, dulçor perde a intensidade inicial e frutas vermelhas ficam mais evidentes. Precisaria de mais corpo. thornecb (6060) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Pours deep mahogany into a shaker. Mocha head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Soft and dry with sweet raspberry and chocolate front to back.
