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.

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.

Pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is very mild with dark roasted malt and fruity notes. Taste is sweet dark malt, mild coffee and chocolate with a bit of artificial raspberry flavor. Palate is medium body with good carbonation, slightly dry astringent. The finish is same as taste with some lingering roasted malt coffee and mild raspberry flavor mild bitterness. Was expecting a bit more substance from this brew, improves as it warms up a bit. Overall an ok brew nothing stand out.

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.
