Bottled (shared by brunnsbe, thanks!). Very deep amber colour, small slightly off-white head. Aroma is mild ashes, some toasted notes raspberries and also some strange sweetish notes. Flavor is raspberries, ashes, some roasted malts, mild red berries as well as some slight toffeeish notes. fiulijn (20411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2014

Dark mahogany color with creamy beige head. Very light aroma of roasted malt. The mouthfeel is dry and dusty, with some roasted malt flavor, very light raspberry touch, light acidity: ordinary bitterness.
Not a bad beer, but just I can’t see an interest here.
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2014 Dark brown, thin head. Chocolate and raspberries...sweet and malty and dessert-like. The body has this character...a bit thin but otherwise fruity and chocolatey...not bad but just needs a bit more residual sugar to pump up the body. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2010
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a dark amber brown. Light raspberry and roasted malt on the nose and palate. Quite uncomplex, but not too bad. Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle - Roasted malts, chocolate and slight raspberry. Jet black with a thin brown head. Raspberry dominates right out of the gate followed by the roasted malts and chocolate undertones. A bit sweet which sits on the palate but not bad.

Bottle. Pours dark clear reddish brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate raspberry aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium chocolate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a fruity drinkable beer.

Draft at Doc Willoughby’s in Kelowna. very dark brown almost black body with a good creamy beige head. Muted raspberry aroma with mocha roast malt undertones. Flavour has a large, artificial raspberry character. Reminds me of milkshake flavouring, or the syrups they add to gourmet coffees. Underlying beer notes take a secondary role to the raspberry. Average to medium palate. Interesting, but a bit unbalanced.
