2012 bottle poured into DFH glass.
A: Pours brown with ruby accents. Looks good coming out of the bottle. Not much of a head to speak of, although I am left with a frothy white foam around the edge of the glass. No lacing but some definite alcohol legs.
S: Huge raspberry jam hits the nose while pouring and is definitely the dominate aromatic element in this beer. Chocolate and caramel malt notes play a background role.
T: The raspberry notes are still very apparent on the palate, but don't dominate quite as much as on the nose. Raspberry is nicely backed by chocolate and sweet caramel or toffee. Sweet, followed up with some nice alcohol warmth in the throat.
M: Full bodied and syrupy with minimal carbonation. Coats the palette and lingers. Again, the alcohol warmth is apparent.
O: Extremely interesting beer. I've never had anything like this before. I'm sure this will develop significantly with some time, but I didn't feel the alcohol warmth was sufficient to detract from the experience.

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.
