Black with a modest dark brown head. Very strong aroma of berries & chocolate & vanilla. Taste is initially bitter followed by longer lasting tartness. Kind of odd at first but the more I drink the more I like it. Very good.

Really love the Brew Rebellion stuff. This stout was very heavy on the raspberry. VERY HEAVY. The chocolate didnt come through as much as I'd like. All in all another interesting brew from the folks at BR.

4.34/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Spiegelau stout glass.
LOOK: Pours with a finger of khaki foam that dissipates to a quarter of a finger within 30 seconds. Black in color with an orange tint. Rising bubbles are moderate. The brew has an abundance of small, white particles floating around. At the bottom of the glass, there is a bunch of yeast settlement. Lacing is minimal and spotty.
SMELL: Strong aromas of raspberry syrup and coffee (from roasted malts) are up front. Mild aromas of white chocolate and a hint of earthy yeast, spicy hops, and alcohol can also be detected.
TASTE: Strong raspberry syrup and coffee flavors initially hit the palate. Strong white chocolate flavors combine with hints of earthy yeast and spicy hops. These secondary flavors enter immediately as initial flavors persist.
FEEL: Full-bodied with subtle carbonation.This is incredibly creamy and smooth. The finish is subtly dry.
NOTE: This was simply amazing.

3.58/5  rDev -10.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A (visual) - black in color, looks almost like a cola. Thick tan head that reduces to a thin rim. Lacing is light and spotted.

S (aroma) - the raspberry stands out and is followed by sweet roasted malts, coffee, and white chocolate.

T (taste) - The tart and sweetness from the raspberry pops out at first then blends into the rich malts of chocolate and coffee. Is sweet throughout and finishes light on that finish you expect from a stout.

M (mouthfeel) - has a medium bodied mouthfeel with a medium finish, it's not as thick as I thought it would be. Smooth, creamy, lightly carbonated, and easy to drink.

O (overall) - this beer has a great balance of sweet, tart, and malts. Even though it's sweet throughout, it's not overbearing. Easy to drink and you don't taste the 10.9% ABV. Would definitely drink again as a dessert beer alone, though did end up eating it with my chocolate dessert.

Tastes and smells like white chocolate and raspberry yogurt blended with rich malts. I really loved the balance between the tartness of the raspberries and the sweetness/bitterness of the stout's body.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours opaque black with cola edges. The 1/4 inch tan head fades to a ring on top that leaves spots of lace.

The smell is of black coffee, dark chocolate and raspberry Jolly Ranchers.

The taste is of raspberry syrup, black coffee and dark chocolate.

The texture is heavy bodied with medium carbonation.

Strong, sweet raspberry flavor dominates. I'm almost positive that a raspberry syrup or extract was used as opposed to fresh fruit. No matter, the sweetness blends flawlessly with the coffee and chocolate notes. Also, the chocolate tastes dark rather than white and the 10.9% ABV is undetectable.
