December 16th:

The Story:

During the summer months when our Raspberry Wheat is on the Growler taps, many of our regular customers will come in to do a custom mix of this tasty beer with our Longboat Chocolate Porter. The results taste very close to a Black Forest Cake. We thought we’d let you in on this local secret and share with you all as a special Christmas treat. Who doesn’t love a delicious chocolate and raspberry dessert this time of year?

Tasting Notes:

Pours deep ruby with a tan head. Strong aromoas of chocolate and raspberry jump off the nose and meld for a classic Black Forest cake profile on first sips.  The sweeter chocolate notes fade to allow for a slightly tart finish from the raspberry.

Availability:

This beer is exclusive to the 2017 Snowcase.

  1. Don’t know that I’d have been able to pull raspberry out of it, but it sure was chocolaty. Skeptical about all such “chocolate beers”, I was assuming this was going to disappoint. It did not. Fantastic flavour. Would happily have another with the evening hockey game.

  2. “Chocolate Raspberry” porter – sounds bizarre but absolutely delicious! The Bavarian Purity Law can take a back seat to this unusual brew. Just the ticket for the holiday season in my humble opinion. I wish I had another one, was really tasty.

  3. Definitely one of the more unique beers from the case so far. I was not sure how this would taste but it was surprisingly tasty. The raspberry was faint but you could still taste it. I did find it a bit sweet near the end as I quickly consumed a glass of water to wash away the sugar. This would make a fine beer in a 650mL bottle.

  4. Many of us old-school Phillips drinkers have been combining the two for years. My fave blend is about 85% chocolate porter and about 15% raspberry wheat ale. I think they definitely went more raspberry than my usual handmix but it was still delicious. I got way more chocolate than raspberry in the aftertaste, though, which isn’t a bad thing.

  5. I want to claim I hate this beer. I want to, but can’t. It’s like eating pot of gold out of a bottle. You know you look at the box and are like “only one”, next thing you know have the box is gone and you’re sitting there with a smile on your face.

  6. Oh my! That is GOOD… I’m glad I’ve been let in on the secret, I will definitely have to give that a try! I didn’t find it sweet at all, it’s like a really dark chocolate mixed with raspberry…

  7. I don’t usually drink Wheat beers, but I Like to try everything That The Phillips Brewery and Malting Co. makes and the Phillips Raspberry Wheat Ale is A Great Beer. The Phillips Chocolate Porter is undeniably delicious. Need I say more. Well, yes. Great Job, I Love that you listen to your fans. I waited a few extra days to open this one. I was not disapointed. On a personal note, with grace and understanding (thanks Gord), i would love to see a Hemp Raspberry/Chocolate Porter, only due to my personal aversion to wheat ales. The bonus would be that the lighter side of the mix would be replaceed with a nice nurritious meaty warmth. Mmm, I am dreaming.
    I can’t wait for another, until then. 🙂
    p.s. Can I get a six pack?

  8. OMG THIS IS AWFUL
    This is not beer for people who like beer it’s yuppie beer,for people who only drink beer if it has fruit in it.not for me.
