90% opaque black pour, with a medium beige head. Big, boozy roast, with a solid amount of raspberry sweetness and jam. Mouthfeel is silky, carb is soft. Finish has a big raspberry kick, some raspberry jam flavour, some big coffee roastiness with some light chocolate. Pretty nice stuff.

Boutip (6271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle: Poured a deep black color stout with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and some light lacing. Aroma of fresh raspberry juice with some chocolate and residual sugar notes is pretty enticing. Taste is a nice mix of fresh raspberry juice with some chocolate notes and some residual sugar. Body is thinner then I was expecting with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting mix thought a little bit thinner then I was expecting.

Si cest rellement une 2013, bue aprs 3 ans. Robe noire opaque sans col de mousse. Armes de malt rti, coulis de framboises, chocolat au lait. Bref, a sent le gteau au chocolat et framboise (Doigt de dame). En bouche, malt grill, chocolat noir, framboise. Le fruit est bien dos, pas trop sucr et le profil de la noire saffirme bien. Finale plus chocolate, un peu amre. Texture huileuse et corps moyen rond. Trs bien.

CapFlu (5123) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
Pours a lasting beige head atop an opaque black body. Nose of seeds of raspberry or even the sweetness of strawberries with a rhubarb finish. Very light by comparison to the 9.3%. Nice flavour.

electrotype (655) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
Un nez tonnament frais pour une telle bire fonce. Je pense des framboises congeles, glaces. La mousse est timide mais crmeuse. En bouche, cest mi-mince. On gote les framboises, le chocolat et un brin de caf. Le "An extremely rich and complex beer" est un peu exagr, mais cest tout de mme fort agrable.

Bottle. Pours pitch black, beige head. Aroma is chocolate, light roastiness and raspberries. In taste medium sweet, chocolate and raspberry flavour upfront with some licorice and coffee in the back. Full body, soft carbonation, finish is lightly sweet and acidic. Very nice.
