16 oz twist-off bottle poured into a Sprecher nonic.
5.73% ABV,

A - Clear on the pour, it's almost totally black in the glass with light showing ruby amber highlights under the massive mocha head. The loose bubbles give way slowly, letting the foam settle to a nice drinkable layer while leaving spots of thick lacing on the glass.

S - Bursting with fresh tart raspberries dusted with a hefty layer of cocoa, the roasted malts introduce the raspberry nose to dark chocolate and toasted wheat bread for a combination worthy of dessert.

T - Roasted malts really give this fruited porter a kick of chocolaty and toasted bread flavor that works wonderfully with the flavor of fresh raspberries rolled in cocoa!

M - Crisp and highly carbonated, this medium-full bodied beer has a really dry finish from both the cocoa and the roasted malts that balances perfectly on the finish with just a touch of tart fruit coming forward.

O - A completely unique porter and a stand out beer from Sprecher, Generation Porter marries fresh raspberries rolled in cocoa with notes of chocolate drizzled over the top for a nicely fruited, dark beer that drinks like a beautiful dessert in a pint!

A: A small finger of tan head was built in a standard pint glass and quickly fell. The beer is a very dark brown with a ruby red complexion when backlit and looks very clear, no haze.

S: The nose is full of raspberry candy (think jolly ranchers) with some underlying cocoa notes.Not getting much else.. no roast or hop or esters of any kind. mostly the raspberry.

T: Raspberry tartness is dominant on the first sip. More fresh tasting then the aroma would indicate. Balance is on the sweet side with the malts taking a back seat to the flavorings. The cocoa comes through after the palette adjusts to the raspberry. No roast character or malt chocolate notes but there is some burnt toast and biscuit flavors that come through. No hop flavor and bitterness is very very low.

M: A crisper lower bodied beer. carbonation is on the medium side also. There is a lingering tartness left on the tongue from the flavorings.

O: The base beer doesn't come though much in this one so if you are a fan of brown porters this one probably isn't for you. If you like raspberry and want it in a beer maybe this is in your wheelhouse. Its a well brewed beer, technically speaking, I'm just not a fan of the flavorings.

Sprecher Generation Porter

Poured from a 16 oz bottle into a Samuel Adams perfect pint. Served chilled.

A) Dark brown with a finger of light tan head. Decent retention and lacing. Settles in like a muddy cola.

S) For me, the raspberry dominates the aroma, and I like it. A little chocolate powder and light roast.

T) The flavor is a bit more chocolatey than the aroma. There is a little touch of caramel sweetness too. Although, much Iike the nose, tart raspberry is the lead dog start to finish. I preferred the flavor of this brew at a colder temperature.

M) Medium bodied with lighter carbonation. Pretty easy drinking, with a dry leafy raspberry finish.

O) Well, of the leftover Sprecher beer from Christmas at my Grandma's house, this has been my favorite thus far. Not bad at all, actually fairly tasty. I like the addition of the raspberry, but then again, I like raspberry. If you don't, this probably isn't for you. Cheers!
