Pours a dark red with almost pink head that trails the glass. The smell was full of raspberry to the point where I couldn't make out anything else. The taste was rather pleasant, but very sweet. But the aftertaste lingered way too long with a mouthfeel that was a bit syrupy. A great dessert beer but I can't see myself drinking more than one at a time.

Guest bottle at FFF poured into half pint. Sweet raspberry and ether aroma. Sweet then sour berry on the tongue melting into fresh baked bread and malt. Delicious.

My favorite beer or all time.

Heavy berry flavor. Sweet and mildly sour. Good with food or alone.
