look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured dark black color with a small brown head that faded quickly. Leaves tiny traces of lacing around parts of the glass.
Smell is the best part of this beer. I actually can smell the chocolate with a hint of berry and some coffee.
Tastes like cheap dark chocolate and some sort of bad coffee. I get no sweetness of raspberry at all. It has a very light body for a stout and leaves my mouth with a nasty bitter aftertaste and very DRY.
Overall I was not impressed but I'd still rather have a Duclaw than a "bud".

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a black color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of chocolate, a bit of coffee and raspberry. Taste is coffee, smoke, mild raspberry, not much chocolate. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall smokier than I thought, and less sweet, a quality beer.

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.
