2004 Vintage in a cute 187 ml bottle with red waxing over cap.
Pours a thick reddish brown, with no carbonation and no head at all. Dark ruby/black berry highlights when held up to the light.
Aromas of Raspberries, alcohol, dark fruit, other berries, wood, chocolate, caramel. Overwhelming aroma is alcohol.
Tastes are similar to aromas with some subtle raspberry tartness. Dark malt sweetness. Very strong alcohol warmth in the throat. This is a boozebomb!
Drinkability (taken into context as an after dinner dessert beer) is good. I could have one with a nice chocolate/raspberry cake after a big meal and then I'd be done.

4.73/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
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!
