This poured with a thick black body that supported a firmly set head of brown foam.

The aroma has a fruity tart sweetness with dry chocolate, lactose and raisin.

The flavors hold a tempered raspberry, supported by a roasted grain and coffee end. At the end the finish it does give up a slight raspberry sweetness.

The feel is dry, not chalky, with some viscous fullness.

One of the better fruit stouts I've had, nothing liberally complex but an easy drinking beer.
