On tap at Brew City, Worcester. Served in a normal pint glass. Dark brown hazy body. White whispy head, and plenty of lacing. Nice aroma of cocoa powder and chocolate covered raspberries. The flavor was interesting. There was some berry flavor at first, but that disappeared once the beer began to warm. Hardly noticeable by the end. Decent porter flavors shown through though. Too thin on the mouthfeel, so points off there. A tasty beer, but not one to pair with dinner; dessert only.

Had this on tap at Horseshoe Pub in Hudson, MA.

A: Almost pitch black with a little light coming through the glass, and a light fluffy head with a little lacing.

N: Nose has some dark malts with a little roasted quality, some chocolate malts, and definite raspberry. It has that aroma like dark chocolate covered raspberry liquid center candies.

T: Lots of raspberry on the taste, like fresh raspberries blended with raspberry syrup. Again comes more chocolate that gives that chocolate covered raspberry candy effect. Some bitter stout flavors from the earthy charred malts. Some sweet malts, but not that much. A slight chewy malty flavor with more roasted malts in the background of all that and hints of some earthy bitter hops. A slight creamy lactose addition gives it a little smooth creaminess.

M: Much lighter than I expected for the darkness and porter qualities it has and not a lot of carbonation which also makes me thing it should be thicker.

F: Semi dry finish with more chocolate and roast lingering a bit, and the some leftover lactose coming out more at the finish leaving a milky like taste on the mouth. Some fruit follows that into the finish.
