On tap at Shepherd & Knucklehead, devastatingly fine dessert treat is perfect nightcap. Like a chocolate raspberry layer cake, chocolate raspberry truffle or Black Forest cake, its sweet-toothed goodness cannot be denied. Black and brown chocolate blend perfectly with pureed raspberry tartness, receiving a thickly syrupy molasses sugaring. In the distance, burnt coffee grounds lightly embitter dark-roasted mocha malting. Beneath, vanilla, hazelnut and cocoa subtleties spread across tertiary blackberry, black cherry and blueberry fruiting. Arguably the best raspberry chocolate stout ever made. In the bottle (2020), richly creamed dark chocolate syruping drapes bittersweet raspberry tartness of luscious tan-laced mahogany-hued dessert treat. Decadent chocolate raspberry caking picks up fudged molasses, toffee, cocoa and vanilla serenity and wispy cherry-bruised dried fruiting.
