750 ml bottle poured into a standard shaker pint glass. There is a nice, thick looking khaki tan head that has a slight pinkish tint. The head recedes gradually, but doesn't leave much in the way of lacing. Body color is a dense black. That black shifts to a chocolaty brown with a tilt of the glass to look at the head from underneath. That chocolate brown also has a hint of purplish pink.
Smell is domainated by a tart raspberry balanced by a sweet mocha coffee bitterness. Very bold aromas linger in the back of the nose. Taste is also dominated by the raspberries. The raspberries are sweet, but not cloyingly sweet. The tartness from the berries and the coffee bitterness does a great job of balancing it out. The coffee has a mild roasted bitterness. I can't tell if it's the coffee or the malts giving off the chocolate flavors, probably a combination of both.
The standard Schlafly Coffee Stout is a little on the thin side. This one has a little more body, a little bit on the syrupy side. Not in a bad way at all. This was an excellent treat.

Jet black in appearance. When held up to light just a wee bit will seep through. A tiny wisp of off white foam partially covers the top of the beer. The aroma is mainly a very sweet raspberry with undertones of rich,bold,dark coffee. The mouth is thick and yet silky. The flavor is bold,dark coffee with a faint tartness of raspberry. There's a lingering battle of bitterness from the coffee and tartness of raspberry.
