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.
