    Presentation: Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

    Appearance: It has a deep brown amber color with deep reddish highlights and a big light tan head that fades to a thin cap on top. Very little to no lacing is left on the glass as it slides down the sides of the glass.

    Smell: The aroma has a sweet berry scent. There is a strong raspberry aroma along with loganberry and other wild berries. Also there is a light roasted malty note under the berry aromas and an even lighter hint of hops in the background.

    Taste/Mouth feel: Its flavor has a big shot of raspberry syrup over a milk chocolaty cake dough malt base. The raspberry sweetness slides to the finish on a slick palate, where it is met by light leafy/herbal hops. The finish has a light bitterness from the hops and a slight tartness from the raspberry. The body is medium to full with soft carbonation.

    Notes: This is defiantly on the sweet side and unbalanced for a porter. It is quite drinkable and I like it but it seems to be more of a fruit beer than a porter.
