3.83/5  rDev +9.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Paid 3 dollars for the single at the House of 1,000 beers. Been a while since I had an experimental beer and I never have tried a chocolate raspberry ale.

A - Pour is spot on what I expected for a stout, very dense and dark with a 1/4 inch of deep mocha head that settles to a thick lace ring. Pretty.
S - I do smell some actual raspberries buried beneath the roast. Hard to tell if they are artificial but in no way to they smell medicinal. Not much chocolate really it just smells like a raspberry infused stout.
T - Very interesting it flows with cocoa powder, then the raspberries sort of mix with the herbal hops, before finishing with the roast. A sort of hard water flavor is noted but it's not very distracting as I get it from time to time with beer. Not bad.
M - Tart and bitter maybe the roast could be dialed back a bit. It seems somewhat watery for a stout giving it a light to medium body. It's ok I guess.

Overall the whole time I was hoping the roast would take a backseat and the chocolate would enter as it warmed but at least I got the taste of raspberries throughout each sip. Worth a try if you seek an brew original.
