First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA
Served in a tulip, a dark ruby-brown liquid with a small tan head that sank to a ringlet; minor lacing. Aroma of roasty dark malts and essence of raspberry, fairly muted. At first sip, I got a nice chocolate-raspberry flavor, but this surprisingly fell off extremely quickly, and the roastiness of the malts took over; pretty much all fruit flavor vanished, and roasty bitterness took over. It wasn't really bad, it was just a bit shocking. Body was just about medium, fairly thin in the mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Came off more like a porter than a stout, honestly. If it had kept up that initial flavor consistently, this would have been a fine beer, but overall, it wasn't that great, and I wouldn't revisit it.
DuClaw seems to have a lot of good ideas, but the final products seems to always fall short.
Serving type: on-tap
