When I first heard about this beer I knew I had to have it. I was fortunate enough to sample it at the 2008 BA EBF and it didn't let me down. I want to thank tayner and mikesgroove for this special treat.
187 mL bottle poured into a snifter. 2007 Vintage.
Pours a dark ruby with a thin layer of brown head that quickly disappears. Tiny bubbles remain here and there with bits of legging when you swirl the glass. Smell is one of a kind. Dark chocolate, ripe raspberries, fresh strawberries, and caramel covered apples. Smooth whip cream and a hint of booze in the nose as well. I could sit here and smell this beauty forever, but that's not what beer is for ;) Flavor is raspberries and creamy caramel, go figure. A very nice blueberry sweetness compliments perfectly. Maple and chocolate syrup combine for even more amazing tastes. The alcohol stings slightly as it flows down the throat, but it's 11.9% people, what did you expect? Mouthfeel is thick and sticky with a higher than expected carbonation. Perfect after dinner treat. What a wonderful beer experience. I urge all BA's to get your hands on this Kuhnhenn gem.

Big thanks to Adam for getting this to me in trade. 2012 bottle with red wax poured in a Firestone Walker Teku on February 13, 2014. Pours bright and dark red with no head at all even with a vigorous pour. Huge sweet raspberry and booze aroma, some caramel or toffee, lots of sweet syrupy sugar smell. So much sweet berry. Flavor is sweet straight raspberry jam/preserves, and then some toffee like malts tingling the tongue with plenty of booze in the background. This is very sweet with a thick nearly syrupy mouthfeel but balanced with some light carbonation as to make it more drinkable. Huge flavors in this brew for sure. Made for the raspberry lover. Very nice and a bit hot. An awesome treat as an after dinner drink, just make sure to pour yourself a small glass around 4 oz. Tough to drink much more than that.
