I really liked this. Not a big Stout guy, but it's cold out and the fella at the Growler Stop gave this glowing reviews. The chocolate and raspberry is very apparent, but not overdone. Smooth and very good. By comparison I recently had a Rhinegeist Panther (a brewer I really like) and I'd take this one all day over that beer.

A nice balance of chocolate roast and raspberry drinks pretty well

Enjoyed from the the growler via Jungle Jim's in a snifter. This nice stout pours a rich black with a nice head of light tan foam that settles to a thick ring, soapy layer, and spotty lacing. Nose of sweet chocolate and raspberry puree...one dimensional, but those dimensions are excellent. Flavors exceed the nose with rich raspberry and mild semi sweet chocolate awash in sweet cream and dusted with confectioners sugar. Medium notes of roast and char present themselves on the sides and back with a lightly bitter roasted malt note on the aftertaste. Medium mouth feel, slick and quaffable, medium body that is coating. A sizable brew that is the equal of the sum of it's parts. A chocolate covered cherry that substituted a raspberry with cream. A fine finishing brew.

If you are a one trick pony and do that trick very well there should be no complaints. I have none.

Cheers

Growler poured into a pint glass. Poured about three fingers of head that took nearly a full minute before leaving copious amounts of lacing. Aroma is highly cocoa, with a pleasant tint of raspberry. Taste followed as you would expect from the aroma: chocolate w/berry aftertaste and a slight warming alcoholic note (whether intentional or not, I found myself tasting Graeter's black raspberry chocolate ice cream). It almost reminded me of a thinner milk stout. An excellent beer from an up-and-coming Cincinnati brewery. I don't know if Rubus Cacao has been canned/bottled by Madtree, but they should continue producing this stout-lover's favorite.

Mix of stout and framboise making a unique sweet milk stout. Drinkable, not overpowering in any favor.
