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.

Not sure when this was bottled, but handwritten batch# 120 (any help on the bottling date would be much appreciated).

Pours midnight black. The edges have a beautiful black-purple flow. Dark brown head also has a purple hue.

Smells like a bag full of raspberry tootsie pops. Backed by dark chocolate.

Tastes like a tart raspberry tootsie pop. Raspberry is not as prominent on the palate as on the nose. Also get hints of milk chocolate, like a milk stout.

Mouthfeel is creamy and slightly sour at the same time. Good carbonation helps keep beer from being too oily or sticky.

This is a must try if you enjoy stout variants. If/when it is released again I will abducting some from Chicagoland.
