4.48/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Blackish brown body with little clarity - a sexy caramel colored head recedes slowly, leaving drapes of sticky lace.

Massive black forest type aromas... thick fudge layered with fresh raspberry... semisweet and somewhat tart. The chocolate doesn't dominate the way you'd expect. Sort of like a Bramble Rye sans barrel...? Awesome.

You'd think a beer like this would enter full-on dessert beer territory - not quite. The sweetness from the fruit doesn't overwhelm the palate. It's a tamer sort of fruit acidity that works remarkably well with an already imposing chocolate flavor profile.

I love the aggressive way Town Hall tweaks these Infusion Series beers. Russian Roulette is over-the-top to begin with - the addition of whole fresh raspberries puts this one on a whole new level.

4.22/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Color is a dark brown, nearing black. Tan head with a lot of lace.

Flavor profile is massive fresh raspberries. Talk about in-your-face. A lot of cocoa and chocolate. Some roasted malts. Dark fruits. Molasses. Best way to describe this is a raspberry tootsie pop.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth. Full bodied.

Overall, this is liquid dessert. So good. I am glad I had a chance to try this. Such a great beer.
