6.3 oz bottle dated 2007 from the 2010 Winter Solstice release
Only my second occasion with this brew; split with my wife on a beautiful fall evening.
A. Pours brown with some orange and red with a slightly foamy tan/ brown head.
S. Cocoa, caramel, some slight oxidation notes, raspberry, and cherry. No apparent booziness on the nose, which is pretty incredible.
T. Starts out with lots of chocolate and some nice red fruit - a mix between raspberry and cherry. A nice, but subtle tartness.
M. Medium body with low carbonation and some slight tartness.
D. Not nearly as much fruit character as the last time I had it, but very good. I'm sad that the raspberry faded though; I'll have to hope that they produced this again.

4.73/5 rDev +7.7%

Poured from a 375 mL bottle into an enlarged wine glass. This is the 2012 version
Appearance: Pours a dark raspberry red and gives a half finger of reddish-tan head which fade almost immediately to nothing.
Smell: Huge aroma - when I poured it, the aroma filled up the room: BIG raspberry, molasses, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate dipped raspberries, bourbon, oak, vanilla, toffee. Big and complex.
Taste: Holy cow, huge flavor (I think my eyes are watering): Big delicious raspberry, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, bourbon. Quite sweet, but really delicious flavors. Jammy and syrupy raspberry take the lead with some bourbon-like qualities playing wonderfully beside.
Mouth-feel: Low to medium carbonation with a thick, sticky, syrupy body. Finishes a bit sweet. The alcohol is masked masterfully.
Overall: This is an awesome, huge raspberry beer. The raspberry is amazingly pronounced but wonderful. Other players include chocolate, vanilla, toffee, molasses. This is surprisingly drinkable. I'm definitely glad I drank the whole 375 mL bottle!
