Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a solidly opaque black color with a 1/4 inch dark tan head that doesn't retain long before reducing to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer center patch of surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Lots of raspberry, as expected, with a nice chocolaty backdrop from the dark roast. Just as it smells like it's going to be too sweet, the roast comes in and offsets it.

T- Taste is actually not as raspberry heavy as the aroma with the main player being the dark roasted malt and the raspberry coming in as, appropriately, the icing on the cake. Still very sweet, but the roast does a great job complementing the raspberry.

M- Silky soft with medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- Pretty much just what I expected, if not better. IMO, Ninja Porter is ABC's best beer and this is a wonderful treatment for it. There's a great equalization between the two flavors and it results in a smooth, tasty drink. Will definitely be getting this again if they brew some more.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a thinner but well sustained light beige head atop,aromas of raspberry and chocolate,maybe a little artificial but not bad.Flavors have a light lactic berry quality and alot of chocolaty sweetness,the raspberry flavors are big and are the main compnent of the flavor profile with sweet chocolate underneath.This is a good Valentines Day beer for wich it was intended for and my wife loves it,for what it is it hits the mark.
