look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A - Considerable orange around the glass witha a short off-white head

S - Very mild with raspberry and milk chocolate

T - Flavor version of the scent. Very mild raspberry and milk chocolate... but sort of that water-based chocolate milk type flavor.

M - Thin with mild coating. Slight tingle on tongue and throat

O - Nothing actually bad, but nothing really good either.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Dark ruby-ish brown pour produces little more then a skim dark walnut toned head. No legs, standard issue. meh.

S: Dried black raspberries, small coffee, fruity, but low on appeal and temptation as well complexity.

T: Flavor of raspberry coffee, with dry bakers chocolate. Lightly bitter, dried blackberry fruitiness, dry creamer, bitter milky finish.

M: Mouthful was dry, slight tingle of carbonation, chalky, lighter end of medium substance wise but appears very thin on the leave.

O: Overall meh best describes this. Sounds like a good dessert beer, but is actually thin, with a boring fruit aspect, and the stout malting seems to be lean, dry flaky bakers chocolate instead of rich, lustrious with a bright fresh fruitiness as i imagined. Thin pass off the tongue, lacks substance, flavor. A big rich black cherry stout would of been ideal. Unimpressed.

The beer poured black with a tan head. The aroma was a rich raspberry and chocalte very much like a fine desert. Then the taste came and I got lots of raspberry, but no beer. The feel was heavy and wet. A very unenjoyable beer, and one I would not recommend.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

12oz. bottle poured into a porter glass.

A- dark ruby/black. light gets through a bit when held to a light. Light khaki head that dissipated quickly.

S- Heavy on the raspberry with a bitter chocolate there as well. Raspberry overpowers.

T- A bit of raspberry, a hint of bitter chocolate, and not much else. Bitter, ugly finish.

M- thin, thin, thin, thin, thin. It's a stout people, it needs some body.

O- DuClaw continues to disappoint me.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Dark brown, thin soapy head, spotty lacing.

S - Cocoa, fake raspberry, light smoke.

T - Chocolate malt, light coffee, fake raspberry, bacon.

M - Thin.

O - I wish I would have seen the "natural flavoring" on the label. FAILURE. I still love DuClaw, just not this.
