2007. A real dark ruby pour, I don't see too much sediment. No head to speak of. What an interesting smell almost like port, without the alcohol. Lots of raspberry, coated with chocolate. Flavors are similar, layers of chocolate covered fruits with some candied fruits and malt added in. Minimal hops, small bubbly activity carbonation wise. Full bodied and sticky. Very drinkable, though I don't think I would want more than just this little bottle at a time. The finish is just a little bit fading sour fruit. This is probably the only drawback on this one. Dessert in a bottle. A must try.

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!
