22 oz bottle into a couple of tulip glasses.

Pours brown in the glass, with a touch of ruby shining through the edges, and topped with a ½ finger of mocha colored head. This maintains some foamy ringing, leaving back a light smattering of lace and light brown oils. Fresh raspberry dominates the nose for the most part but still saves room for underlying notes of coffee, cocoa, and a smidge of green citrus.

The taste is chocolate, green citrus and burnt grains along the back. That ever present raspberry flavor hangs on the edges of the profile and pulls into the backend as well. The roast in particular is really standing out to me and gives the finish dry and toasty feel while some leftover raspberry flavor leaves a little stickiness back in the corners of the mouth. The mouthfeel is medium to fuller bodied with a sharpness to the carbonation up front, which then works itself into more of a firm and chewy creaminess along the back. The added alcohol is well hid here beyond the extra fullness to the flavors and feel.

This beer is the way that Naked Fish should have been all along, as I’ve always found the regular version to be a bit too light bodied and overdone with the raspberry flavor. This version is more of a sipper (I’m glad I split the bottle) with a lot more complexity going on with it. I’d like to see them bring this one back each February.

**150th Review**

A: Ruby red edges amongst a pitch black body.

S: Chocolate, cream, raspberries and bitter coffee.

T: Chocolate, cream, raspberries, bitter coffee and some sweetness. Awesome!

M: Full bodied and thick. Alcohol is noticeable.

O: Great sipper. Only could have one because it's so rich and complex. Plus it's heavy on the booze.
