Dennis: Sent as part of a trade with a fellow beer lover in MI, this is one of the highest rated beers in MI, but also apparently one of the hardest to get. High in price and small in stature (6.3oz bottle) the saving grace for this beer is the unique craftsmanship. The name pretty much says what you'd expect, but unlike other disappointments, this brew delivers. The aroma is ripe with deep chocolate raspberry alcohol, but the taste is all that and so much more. Amazingly light in body for a brew so rich in aroma, deep liqueur dark chocolate raspberry is all you will enjoy, with an amazingly subtle alcohol bite for a 13.5% beverage.
Jen: I feel like I am drinking dessert. It starts off with the scents of a Lindt Raspberry Truffle; almost like I walked into the room where they are being made. I also get a faint scent of nuts. With a lighter body than I was expecting, the taste is quite unique. I feel like I just bit into a slice of chocolate cake topped with raspberry ganache. The body is filled with very small bubbles enhance the flavors. The taste (and ABV) makes this a sipper, but I would eat with a spoon for dessert any day. A definite must try at least once in your lifetime.

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.
