Pours thick black with an ample tan head. Very aromatic -- the smell of fresh raspberries wafts around and makes this stout undeniably enticing. The smell is perfect. I had this first on draft at the brewery and loved it so much I brought a growler home.

Rich, dark chocolatey notes predominate and the finish is a snappy raspberry note. No fake or overly-sweet fruit flavors to muck up the flavor or mouthfeel. Soft bitterness rounds out on the palate, which balances out the otherwise very rich, fudge-like characteristic of this stout. A bit of chew and earth. Tastes like eating chocolate cake filled with raspberry puree. Full-bodied and definitely made for dessert.

I was able to convince my non-RIS drinking girlfriend to try this one and she liked it. She requested a glass from the growler with no arm twisting -- and a full glass, not a 3 oz. pour. It's a fantastic dessert beer.

Hardywood Park is consistent in offering quality brews.

Best beer I have had from this brewery. Taste is big time raspberries, sweet and dark chocolate, cocoa, and roasted malt. Tastes like a raspberry cordial mixed with a stout. Excellent dessert beer that I will have to look for again.
