Pours an effervescent black with 3 fingers of mocha colored head. Nice vicscious look to this, above average head retention & lacing

S: Raspberry juice, faint roasty notes

T: Raspberry, a little cola, roastyness & Baker's chocolate, plus faint smokeyness & a little boozeyness. Boozeyness, dryness, raspberry, roastyness & a little more carob. Finishes dry, a little roasty & with woody hop notes

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, thins out a bit once warm

Okay, not one I would buy again. I doubt aging this longer is really going to improve this much. Widmer used to make some beers I really liked, not sure about that any more

A - Nice appearance. Dark, smoky, little bit of froth, but inviting and pleasant.

S - Good smell. Hoppy and bitter, but no scents of Raspberries.

T - Disappointing. Was expecting a raspberry taste, but there was none. It tasted like any other run of the mill stout.

M - Smooth going down with a hint of bitterness. Easy to drink.

O - A bit pricey. The raspberry advertised never came through, thus it loses its uniqueness.
