Poured from 12oz can into glass. One of a special 4-pack of Lupulin truffle beers. Stamped can date is '11/05/18'.
Dark cola colored body. Skiff of head upon pouring quickly disappears. Dots of lacing slide back down into body.
Aroma of raspberry and chocolate. Roasted malts underneath.
Taste is a melding of tart raspberry and chalky chocolate. Roasted malt body. No bitterness. The taste is a teetering between the fruit and the bean.
Mouth feel is medium. Lower carbonation.
Good solid porter base allows the raspberry and the chocolate to balance against each other to create a taste profile that is sweet and tart. Neither wins against the other but the enjoyment is how the two add on tastes resonate within the tasting experience.

Imperial Raspberry Truffle pours an almost black color, with no head. Looks like soda. Big sweet aroma, with lots of raspberries. Flavor is big and sweet, lots of raspberry, with chocolate mixed in, tastes like a fruit filled candy bar. Good body and feel. Overall, very sweet, like a candy bar, save it for desert.

Part of the imperial truffle porter 4-pack of 12 oz cans. Not much in the way of head but otherwise looks nice. Timid aroma with just a hint of raspberry. Flavor is much better than the chocolate version of this beer. More complex flavor and not as much alcohol heat. The raspberry is not overbearing but complimenting the porter base. Nice body and carbonation.

On tap at Lupulin. Dark dark pour. Some raspberry on the nose. Comes through much more on the taste. Well balanced with the chocolate. Really delicious.
