Rogue Ales Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale Fruit Beer at 5.4% ABV ($12.99 at Sobeys Liquor Silverado, 750ml, no bottle date or best before)

Pours clear brown with red highlights, one finger light tan diminishing gradually to thin skim, moderate lacing  (4/5) Nose is raspberry, milk chocolate, biscuity yeasty malt. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderate bitter, mild sour, mild salt. (6/10) Medium body, prickly carbonation and mild bitter and tart berry finish. (3/5)

Well, that’s a bit of a kitchen sink – what’d they do, throw everything at it, and see what sticks? It’s not bad, but ultimately what it ends up tasting like, particularly with the prickly carbonation, is cola. Maybe raspberry cola, but cola. Smells a bit better than it tastes, but ultimately doesn’t work all that well. (14/20)
