Pour is dark brown, almost black with a bubbly light brown head. Nose is heavy raspberry purée. A hint of roasted malt and chocolate but not much else and dominated by raspberries. Taste has a bit more malt, still loads of raspberry. Hint of chocolate, and roasted ashy malt. Body is creamy, light carbonation and medium body. Sweet towards the back and lingers through the finish.

Bottle shared by leftyhyzer

A - Dark chocolate brown with milk chocolate head that sits on the sides of the glass.

S - Roasted chocolate with slight burnt malt. There is only a slight raspberry presence to it as not much comes through.

T - Milk chocolate up front with a roasted dark chocolate and espresso. There is also a slightly smoky malt presence to it. The raspberry comes through in the middle to give is a slight tart and fruity aspect to it. The roasty and chocolate aspects are definitely the main aspect as you only get a light hint of the raspberry.

M - Medium body with light syrupiness to it. The finish is slight bitter coffee astringency

O - Overall a decent raspberry stout but there is not as much raspberry as I was hoping for. The smoky and roasted aspects of it really take over and prevent the raspberry from shining through.
