It has nice notes of raspberry in the nose and taste until the bitterness kicks in. I tried letting it warm up but it was still too bitter and took away from the raspberry.

Bitter, not what I would expect. For something that claims "heaps of Chocolate malt" It's kinda watery. Can't get past the bitter

On tap at the POPE.

Murky, muddy appearance, dark brown chocolaty, with little to no head, leaving greasy film on the glass. I imagine I just got a bad pour, making this the bar's fault. Aroma of dark malts and raspberry jam. Taste of baker's chocolate, raspberry jam sweetness, earthy, or dirty rather. Slick, oily mouthfeel, chewy and somewhat unpleasant, yet still too light/thin for a stout. Tried giving this the benefit of the doubt, assuming a bad pour, but I still got a pretty good idea of what was going on. Too much clashing sweetness going on.

thin, but crisp. nice, tiny bitterness. not as fruity as expected. packs the punch of something much heavier duty than it tastes/feels like. warms up well, tastes a bit stronger the longer it sits. it's a beer I'd consider trying again at room temperature.

still, overall, not among my favorite hardywood brews, but I'd certainly try it again.

poured from a bomber into a snifter.
