3.65/5 rDev +0.3%
From old notes.
A - Poured deep red and bright. One finger of beige head with minimal lace and a half finger of retention.
S - Mild berries, some roast, tobacco, berries our more later. A little chocolate too.
T - Sweet berries, a little roast, chocolate. Finished nice.
M - Decent carbonation, medium to full body, and a dry finish.
O/D - Raspberry was clearly there and played well with the porter. Nice and balanced between the two elements. Not my favourite style, but this one was done well.

Appearance: very dark brown, almost black; thick, frothy, but not dense head the colour of mocha
Aroma: black currant, ripe raspberry; something sharp and acidic
Taste & Mouthfeel: hit of bitter chocolate at first which turns to something reminiscent of dark cherry or raspberry chocolate cake (think black forest); somewhat watery texture and flavour, doesn't have great staying power, possibly due to lack of hops; tart bitterness in finish which amplifies over time; a little short on carbonation
Overall: initial flavour is great, but its missing the solidarity and backbone to stick around and maintain impact; could do better in stout form

A: Deep ruby with a slight amber hue in it. Head poured 1/2 inch think and then went down to about 1/32" It clings to the glass.
S: When I first poured it and the head was still about 1/4 inch I could pick up on roasted notes, subtle chocolate and nuts. Once the head went down there was now hints of raspberries (raspberry jam).
T: Taste like raspberry dark chocolate bar. Raspberries and dark malts are balance together, sort of like a tango together. The end finishes with a slight hop bitterness and raspberries. The raspberry flavour is very complementary and does not compete.
M: Highly carbonated, a bit thin but yet pleasant.
O: Now I know why it took me 2 months to find it at the LCBO. This is a well balanced and well flavoured raspberry porter. My only complaint is that the carbonation is a bit high for my taste but I do thin it is within style (high side)

Cola brown in colour, brilliant clarity. Massive beige head shows great retention and some lace. Noticeable raspberry aroma with an accompanying nutty note. Raspberry jam up front, mildly sweet, followed by strong nut and biscuit notes. Light chocolate as it approaches room temperature. Finishes short with slight earthiness and very low bitterness. Just shy of medium-bodied with low carbonation. Feels smooth and creamy, yet light. I like the aroma and flavour of this beer, but I have to deduct points for this really not being much of a porter. If it were sold to me as a raspberry brown ale, this would easily get a half-point nudge upwards in both categories. Maybe even a full point up in flavour for its structure.
