3.8/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Single bottle (no date I could decipher) poured into a tumbler.

Appearance: Dark transparent color - has a natural raspberry juice color (dark red with hints of brown). Hardly any foam upon pouring and what was left was just at the edges of the glass.

Smell: When first poured and cold, you get a strong raspberry smell combined with some chocolate notes. It smells a lot like a raspberry chocolate treat. As it warms up the raspberry diminishes.

Taste: When cold, one gets the raspberry up front, strong but not overpowering, and then a slight coffee finish. As it warms up, the raspberry gets toned down some and the malt comes out more. The coffee finish goes away. Tasty, but best when cold.

Mouthfeel: Minimal carbonation on the tongue, just a little bit thick, but otherwise nothing special.

Drinkability: This beer is best when cold, as it warms up the pleasant raspberry starts to go away and which takes away from the enjoyability of the beer in my opinion. Still, it's nice, but not something I can see reaching for again. Would make a great dessert beer in the summer.

3.15/5  rDev -6.5%

Pouring a cellar temp bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a rich dark brown with some mahogany highlights on the edges of the glass. Minimal creamy beige head foams up and remains a thin surface layer.
Aroma is mild with raspberry and chocolate almost like a fruit filled candy, maybe the fruit paste kind not the gel.
First sip reveals a very light and thin body and tiny gentle rolling carbonation.
Flavor is similar to the nose, with a mild overall profile, but I get some roasted malt and dry baker's chocolate. These flavors roll to sweet raspberry notes. Finish is also a little dry.
Not a flawed brew but not overly interesting. It held up pretty well over time, but I wonder if it was a little more bold fresh?
