Hazy brown with one finger of light tan head. Head goes fairly soon and good amount of lacing.
Smell is big blast of raspberries. Later a bit of chocolate malt aroma.
Taste is raspberries immersed in a pretty decent Brown Ale. The raspberries dominate but the chocolate comes on after a few sips. There is some hop bitterness that helps beat down the fruity sweetness.
Mouthfeel is a bit thin like most beers of this style. Carbonation is low but fine for this beer. Easy drinking for sure. Bottle date was 6/13/13. Don't know if this is a best by date or brewed on date.
Overall a tasty fruit beer and fine for a warm summer evening which it is today.

A-Aesthetically pleasing design on the front of the bottle. Poured thin with slightly beige head. Lots of Lacing. Poured into a pub style glass.

S- Raspberries! Very prevalent,.

T-Raspberries! Yep its artificial, but it still warrants a good flavor, a sweeter brown with a slight malty character. Raspberries def came to the party.

M-Not quite as bubbly as usual browns. Appetizing. More and more each sip.

O-Great, unique twist on a brown

Poured a clear brown with a ruby tinge and two fingers of quick-fading off-white head. Aroma of raspberry and caramel.

Moderate carbonation and a light mouthfeel. Light caramel and dry toast up front with a hint of raspberry and some cocoa bitterness on the finish.

Quite dry without much malty sweetness, to the point of coming across a little thin overall. Still, nice balance of fruit and dry, slightly chocolatey malt.

Body is a dark brown, the head is thin but it does lace the glass.

Raspberry on the nose. Something off about that through.

The raspberry seems "candied" and fake somehow. The darker malts are there, brown malts. The raspberry is consistent throughout just not winning me over. I brewed with real raspberries recently and this is not at all how it turned out.

Really thin brew, comes off like a soda in this regard.
