2004, 6.3 oz bottle with red wax seal on top. Thanks to Eyedrinkale for this trade.
Appearance: Dark brownish red fluid. A thin, light tan colored head develops with a bit of swirling. It's not a particularly exciting looking beer but it does sport a nice color.
Smell: Very sweet, raspberry jam nose with a slight roasty scent.
Taste: Very sweet as expected but not too sweet or uncomfortable. Some roasty notes but they are very light and somewhat chocolate like. A bit of alcohol warmth at the end, but that is also very light. Mostly raspberries and a nice natural sweetness. A very very slight tangy aftertaste lingers for a moment.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and very thick and syrupy. Comfortable on my palate.
Drinkability: This is a good after dinner drink. It's very sweet making it very much like port. I have to say that the flavor does seem to be one-dimensional. It's not complex. It's good, but not complex. It tastes like raspberries and is just what you would expect.

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.
