2.1/5  rDev -39.3%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

A: The beer is a darker shade of brown with a thin tan head that does lot last at all. It doesn't appear to leave any lacing.

S: I pick up a fairly strong scent of caramel and just a hint of chocolate. As the beer sits the chocolate aroma seems to come forward a bit more, but there's nothing spectacular to this.

T: Right off the bat I get a roasted burnt popcorn flavor, then I get a hint of some dark coffee and a tad of chocolate. These last to flavors are exceedingly frail and muddy in a one-dimensional background haze.

M: Lifeless and thin. It tastes extremely watered down and flat. There is no discernible body.

O: I want to point out that this beer is called "Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale." If the pretzels were left too long in the oven and burned, I could understand where they get the pretzel flavor descriptor. At no point during the drinking of this beer did it smell or taste anything like raspberry. Did they forget to put it in my batch?! I barely even got any chocolate. I would not buy this beer again, and would caution others against it.

3.7/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a mahogany color with half an inch of quickly fading head that dies down to pretty much nothing

S: Chocolate and raspberry up front along with a bit of doughy breadiness. Some light coffee/mocha notes under that, but chocolate is definitely the front runner with the raspberry close behind

T: Starts off with the chocolate and raspberry, with some lightly roasted malts. A bit of coffee comes through with the light roast. Finishes with a bit of doughy maltiness and lingering chocolate + raspberry

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Aside from having virtually no presence from the pretzels, this brew definitely lives up to the name. Not too sweet though, despite the chocolate and raspberry jelly-like flavors. Very easy to drink (it is only 5.4%, so that's not too surprising) but a bit on the pricey side. Worth a try if you're into chocolate, raspberry, or jelly donuts.

3.69/5  rDev +6.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A - Very dark brown, thick creamy heady, similar to a porter/stout

S - Chocolate, raspberry, bread, can't really detect pretzel

T - really dominated by chocolate and raspberry, dark sugars, breadiness

M - creamy, medium bodied

O - very unique and original, strong taste of chocolate and raspberry, some breadiness but can't detect any pretzels which is disappointing. I think this is good beer but had a lot more potential than is delivered

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Dark brown in color. Brown head that fades quickly. Strong chocolate aroma, some sweetness, and a little tart in the nose. Chocolate, then more chocolate, fades to some bready and fruity flavors. Low carbonation, smooth to drink. Overall a drinkable, maybe not a whole bottle, after dinner beer.
