@ Wedge

Typical amazing nitro pour appearance: black with a dense, milkshake-like head on top. Smells of raspberries over some deep, smooth roasted malt. Raspberry sweetness in the mouth, some chocolate, and very light roast. Creamy smooth mouthfeel finishing slightly tart and dry. Enjoyable and easy drinking for over 8% on an unusually warm and sunny February afternoon. This used to be a heftier 9+%, which I never tried, but I wonder if they purposefully dropped the ABV or it was just this one batch. I think some more dark malt would benefit this to balance out the fruit, especially some added roast. I imagine the nitro is also a factor in the surprising overall mellowness of the beer. I'd love to try it on CO2.

Draft at wedge.

Pours a dark black with a nice frothy beige head. the smell is quite big on raspberries...nice! taste is roasty with a tad bit of chocolate and only a tad of raspberries...not like the nose would indicate. medium bodied..not as full as a typical RIS. good carbonation.

Overall an impressive aroma on this one, but the taste doesnt follow suit. still a good beer.
