Dark brown with a tinge of red. Small ring and small islands of foam dwindles to tiny bubbles here and there. A couple sesame seed sized sinkers.
A heady smell of dark chocolate and cooked raspberries are tempting in the extreme.
The aroma is almost an invitation to disappointment but I must say that this was everything I thought it could be. Chocolate malted milk with raspberry. Not as intense as the aroma but quite a bit more complex. There is a berry seed bitterness and a tartness that lasts, literally, for hours. Like a mouthwatering SweetTart under your tongue tartness.
Surprisingly medium in body. With so much aroma and flavor, I expected it to feel thicker. Very creamy. Plenty of carbonation tickle to make it even more interesting.
There is a reason that it comes in a 6.3oz bottle. I could not imagine drinking more in one sitting. Even so, it took me over an hour to fully savor it and I still felt like I was drinking too fast. Very enjoyable. Very interesting.

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!
