Thanks to Sprinkle for the trade. Bottled in 2004. Uneventful pour. Body is a deep, wine red with a few flakes of sediment. Aroma has a caramel and toffee undertone, vinous raspberries, and chocolate as it warms.
Taste is incredibly rich. Chocolate covered raspberries, luscious caramel, this is like a cordial. Warms the throat. Mouthfeel is incredibly heavy, and silky smooth. Plenty carbonated, and insanely drinkable. I would love to make a day of this beer.

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!
