330ml bottle served in a chalice glass. bartholos (269) - GERMANY - JUL 13, 2016
A: Pours a completely dark color forming a solid beige head with good retention that leaves a lot of thin lingering lacings in the glass.
S: Great nose. Lots of caramel malts, roasted malts, dark chocolate with well introduced hints of raspberries. Reminds a dark forest cake.
T: Sweet upfront. Notes of roasted malts, caramel malts, dark chocolate, earth, coffee beans, licorice. Good hops bitterness. Grassy hops profile. Hints of raspberry, light sour notes.
M: Heavy body. Medium to low carbonation. Roasted malts in the aftertaste.
O: Good drinkability. Great Porter tempered with raspberry.
Bottle. Pours deep dark brown, opaque and with a really full stable frothy tan head. Aroma is dominated by raspberries and has lighter roasted notes of dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is light sweet, has a quite sour foundation and turns light bitter in the finish. The body is thick and oily with low carbonation and a creamy, mousse like mouthfeel. Flavor gains stronger coffee and toasted notes as well caramel while the raspberry notes are turned a bit down. There is also a light spicy note coming through. Aftertaste is light bitter-sweet, coffee and caramel. Good profile that pronounces the dark fruit notes more and resembles something like a raspberry chocolate dessert with a complimentary coffee. bonzanini13 (9) - - MAY 19, 2016 does not count
Love this beer, muito balanceada, aromatica e saborosa. As frutas quebram o tostado de maneira sutil. Facil de beber. Uma das minhas prediletas para se tomar após o jantar junto com uma sobremesa.

Balanceada, imponente e de ótima sensação na boca. Maltes torrados e o álcool combinam muito bem com o toque adocicado da cereja. fiulijn (21471) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016

Bottle - Dark chocolate and berry notes. Deep brown with a light brown head. Chocolate, sweet berry and nice dark malts. Nice. mcberko (19193) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2016
12 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out rich blackberries, some cocoa and bready notes. Flavour is like a pure liquid black forest cake, full of blackberries and light cocoa notes. Just enough sweetness to lend to this. Great balance, with lots of depth. Really nice stuff.

Dark brown, thick head. The aroma is subtly fruity, sweet, nice chocolatey taste and good balance.
