I drank this on tap into a tasting glass at the Harvard location.
The beer pours light black with a very creamy light tan head. The retention is unreal, it leaves a full head on the beer for over 15 minutes. There is also great retention.
The aroma is very light but balanced. It gives off light coffee mixed with some great raspberry notes, you can actual tell raspberries were used.
The taste is also very light coffee but the raspberries come off much more pronounced with a very sweet but nice raspberry finish.
The big problem here is a super light watery feel. however, weirdly its still creamy and coating as you swallow.
Overall, this is avery good stout in general, and the best I've seen infused with fruit.
Serving type: on-tap
