Poured pretty dark with a light red tint. There is a pretty strong raspberry smell that actually made my nose crinkle. Also small hint of coffee. The raspberry is very stong in the tast. Almost overpowering but beat back down at the end by some chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel was a little thin for me, and i felt that it got worse as the beer warmed up, but that just means enjoy faster!

Wow.

A: Coke black, puffy tan head, lasting, big lace chunks.

S: Rasberry, coffee, obviously.

T: Sweet/tart berries upfront, finishes with a bitter chocolate mocha. Neither the Rasberries, or coffee dominate. Just a neat balance of the two. Slight metallic aftertaste.

M: Medium to heavy. Light carbonation, but nice head.

D: This is like drinking a rasberry chocolate bar. WAY, WAY too quafable. The 750 was emptied far to fast, after the first glass. Just an amazing beer.

A - Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a one-finger, brown head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of roasty coffee and some subtle raspberry notes. Fresh raspberries not some raspberry juice.

T - Good dark roasty coffee flavors with an espresso-like bite. Light raspberry flavor adds some sweetness to balance the bitter coffee.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a really good coffee stout. I love the Schlafly Culinaria releases.

Pours a dark brown, very little light seen through when you hold it up to the light. Nice tan head to it, a good inch thick, I pour my stouts hard. No lacing in the glass after its gone.

Smell is very good, nice tart raspberrys, a good coffee smell, dark chocolates and the malts you normally smell from a oatmeal stout.

Taste is bitter for me up front, like a fresh raspberry, then it sweetens up and theres a dark mocha chocolate coffee taste. I really dig this taste, others complained about a fake raspberry taste but this tastes to me what a fresh, tart, non-sugared berry tastes like. Changes a bit once it warms up, a nice beer to try cold, then have the other half of the bottle warm up till your ready for it.

Mouthfeel its a little thick, but I dont need to chew it, perfect for the style imo. Carbonation is good, mellows out as it sits and warms up.

Overall I really dig this beer, it sat on my shelf for a bit till I tryed it. Glad I picked it up, tastes change as it warms up for the better. Schlafly never dissappoints me, makes me happy to be from St Louis.

Got this bottle in a trade at DLD. Popped open to share with Nashvillain as I have greatly been looking forward to this- it just sounds so good! Poured into Tulip...

A- Pours black into the glas with a fairly large two finger tan/caramel colored head. Leaves very nice lacing.

S- Gives off a slight tartness from the raspberry. A little bit of roast with just a tinge of coffee in there. Also, a small amount of earthy and woodiness detected in there... Overall there is just a little bit of quite a few things going on in the nose. Nothing very pronounced though which is a disappointment because it has the potential to be amazing.

T/M- First impression is that this is very good. Upfront you get a very nice fruit flavor. The level of raspberry is spot on; not too much, or too little. Directly behind the raspberry is the coffee which is more subtle, but still very noticeable and blends much more than I may have thought they would. The beer really finishes with the roastiness and earthy tones that I got in the nose. This reminds me of a Raspberry Mocha. The body is super smooth and slick with a minimal amount of carbonation...

O- Such a great beer. It is definitely different, but quite wonderful. Though the nose was disappointing, the taste and overall experience make up for it. I did notice that as this beer warmed up, the raspberry popped out even more with some chocolate to really give the mocha impression. If available, I would definitely get this again.

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.

I have had this last year and now this year, both times on tap in a small snifter.

Appearance- This is what you would except very dark more like a RIS look.

Smell- You definitely get a good wiff of the raspberries in this along with that nice good coffee smell.

Taste- This has improved over last years batch, last year was a bit coffee heavy. This year there is a great balance between the raspberries and coffee.

mouthfeel- is improving to me, i think this year is creamier but i think that is the best you are going to get with a 7% stout.

Overall- This is a great beer and a nce treat to get one a year, if you are able try and get a bottle to taste for yourself.

Had on tap at the schlafly tap room St. Louis Missouri

Appearance: Very dark, small amount of tan head, little to no lacing

Smell: Chocolate cake with raspberries.

Taste: Mocha and raspberries. Dessert all the way, would be a great way to finish off a meal. Wouldn't want to drink more than one of these. Very rich.

Mouthfeel: nice and full, has a nice thickness that corresponds with the richness of the flavors

Overall: I liked it, not excactly familiar with the style but it was very enjoyable. Definately a must try.

A- Pours a medium dark brown with a good head.

S- Smells of dark coffee and a slight hint of raspberry

T- very nice and balanced. There is a smooth coffee and chocolate upfront with a hint of raspberry and a nice acidic finish.

M- The medium body is offset by the citrus notes and makes it an easy drinker.

O- I thought this was a very solid coffee stout and the raspberry gives it a nice change on the back end and gets rid of the bitter finish without using a lot of malt Delicious with a piece of chocolate cake.
