12 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, best before 2/23/2014. Pours crystal clear deep ruby red color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tart raspberry, raspberry skin, caramel, toast, light chocolate, brown bread, herbal, floral, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of raspberry fruit, dark/bready malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of tart raspberry, raspberry skin, caramel, toast, brown bread, light chocolate, herbal, floral, and herbal earthiness. Light fruit tartness on the finish; with lingering note of raspberry, caramel, toast, brown bread, light chocolate, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of raspberry fruit, dark/bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/fruit balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, lightly creamy, and slightly syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice fruited brown ale. Good balance and robustness of raspberry, dark/bready malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
