Dark brown verging on black in the glass. Delightful raspberry aroma. Taste is of chocolate and raspberry. A bit thin. Overall a nice fruited stout.

A: porter-black ale with a couple of fingers of tan foam

S: dark roasty malt chocolates sparkling with bright berry notes

T: dark juicy berries pop right through; as you drink, smoother chocolaty flavors settle in; left impressions of creamy cocoa with bright red berries on top

M: smooth, almost light and fluffy; sparkle of tart berry on the tongue; no cloying sweetness at all; bittersweet chocolate is subtle...

O: an excellent stout - impossible not to enjoy - makes me think of what Bourbon County Bramble and Backyard Rye ales might taste like without the rye or bourbon...

A - Pours a dark brown with a fluffy light brown head that fades very slowly.

S - Lots of raspberry and chocolate malts.

T - Tons of raspberry through out, bitter-dry chocolate keeps it from being overly sweet.

D - Good carbonation with a heavy body.

O - Nice raspberry and not super sweet. Best of the series for me.

Served in a pint from the bottle.

Appearance: Super dark brown-black body. Head is dark tan rising just over a finger's length off the body with medium bubbles.

Smell: Sweet warm brown sugar.

Taste: Sweet complex and heavy dose of fruit. You taste molasses and vanilla with a definite note of raspberries or cherries.

Mouth: Syrupy and soft caramel....very sticky. Carbonation is just right and light coffee after feel.

Overall: Good brew. Might
