3.9/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Completely opaque, very dark brown brew topped by a dark tan-brown head. Nice big head initially that fades at a moderate speed into a thin tight ring. Aroma is pleasant, deep and soft, with toasty coffee and chocolate, with real raspberries (not syrup-like or candy-like) and light hopping. I sense a little bit of spice, similar to coriander but it could just be the yeast and raspberries. Taste is good also. Thick but soft malts....bittersweet chocolate, roasty coffee, fresh raspberries. Not very complicated and easy to enjoy. The fullish body, smooth and velvety texture, and lightly tingly bitterness are sweet as well. The is easy to drink, but I've discovered I like to take my time sipping this brew.
This would be perfect with chocolate cake topped with raspberry sauce. Mmmm...
Serving type: growler

3.85/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours a coffee brown color with a bit of a head that disappears before the pour is finished; a bunch of dots are left behind
Smell: Baking chocolate with raspberry and tamarind undertones
Taste: The chocolate is more pronounced and delivers a punch, up front, with the raspberries adding a jammy aspect, in the middle; the finish is rather abrupt, though the flavors from the front end continue
Mouthfeel: Medium body with low to moderate carbonation
Overall: Not much of a BSDA and much more of a Belgian Stout, I would amp up the roasted malt bill to eliminate the confusion
Serving type: bottle
