Big thanks to someone for sharing this in line at DLD. Served in a taster glass. Pours a decent brown color with a bit of an off-white head. The nose carries a good dosage of raspberries and light earth along with a bit of red wine and oak in the background. Flavor is mostly raspberries with a bit of vinous oak. Touch of bready malt in the background. Medium body and a dry finish. Okay, but too fruit heavy without much complexity.

The complete title of the beer as posted on the Shoreline website is Imperial Raspberry Ale Aged in Wine Barrels, as part of their Bourbon Barrel Bottle Series.

The beer was sampled at the 3rd Annual Illinana Mayfest beer festival on 5/26/2012. Poured into the sampler glass, the ale was a cloudy dark color with a tint of red. As far as scent goes, the head released a strong vanilla aroma. The barrel aging was very apparent. The initial taste was spicy and tart raspberry. Not only does one get a real flavor of raspberry to the point where you may want to pick the seeds out of your mouth, but there is a certain strong spiciness to the beer. The oak becomes a little more apparent in the after taste, which is warming with a pleasant fruitness. Though a little thin, this beer is sweet, refreshing, and certainly complex.
