4.63/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5

Picked up 4 bottles last Christmas (2005 release) and had one while at the brewery

Appearance: Pours a deep reddish brown. Syrupy and with as it is swilled in the glass it has minimal carbonation. Legs of alcohol form on the glass as it settles (indicating the high alcohol).

Aroma: Smells of chocolate cake with a warm raspberry sauce. Complex malt and dark fruit aromas.

Taste and Mouthfeel: Heavy dark malt sweetness with a slight tart raspberry character. Somewhat syrupy and cloying with caramel and cake. Alcohol is hidden well but is definitely there in the finish with a slight throat burning. Carbonation is very light and only slight helps refresh the tongue from the syrupy sweetness.

Drinkability: This is definitely not an everyday beer. Even if you could get it. Its very complex and I still can't get past the chocolate and raspberry aroma. This would be an occasional sipper possibly for desert or with a dark chocolate sampler. $10 per bottle is a little steep but it is worth the occasional expense. If it was less or I could afford it, this would definitely be used in a raspberry reduction.

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!
