2.78/5  rDev -28%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Look: typical stout-like darkness. Almost undetectable head.

Smell: medium malt. Very light raspberry/fruit aroma.

Taste: burnt pie crust. Bitter and sour raspberry flavor overshadows this beer. Turns it into an almost rancid tasting stout.

Feel: relatively smooth with a medium-light acidic bite.

Overall: concept is intriguing but the raspberry kills this beer. Taste is overwhelmingly tart and makes this brew hard to finish drinking.

Sampled 10/9/2011 at the brewpub. I chose American Stout because thats what the base beer is and thats what the other versions of this beer are classified as here. Could just as easily be a fruit beer.

From the board: "Tart, raspberry version of Dockhand. Dark and roasty with big raspberry flavor/aroma, Rebellious Dockhand goes through a “sour mash” to obtain its distinct, refreshing sourness. 5.4% abv. 34.1 IBU"

Pours dark brown, hazy, with some offwhite head, good lacing, decent retention.

Aroma is sour raspberry, some roast, lots of sweet toffee.

Flavor is lemon and raspberries mostly followed by a malty and burnt brown ale. Some funk is detected.

Body is medium. I think this would be better without the raspberries.
