Purchased for $8.33 for 2004 vintage in a 6.3 oz bottle. Pours out caramel in color and consistency almost like a thin syrup. Aroma is of cocoa and raspberry reminding me of a raspberry tootsie pop. Head dissipates rather quickly. Elements of chocolate and a sweet with slight tartiness of raspberry. Reminds me of a candy. Aftertaste remains on tongue for a long time afterwards. A slight bitterness and warming alcohol presence on the tongue. Many interesting flavors going back and forth. Not too thick in mouthfeel, light on the tongue. This has stood up fairly well after sitting on a store shelf for a while. I think a little bit is just right. As I drink more the fruitness and raspberry flavors come out a little more than the chocolate.

4.73/5 rDev +7.7%

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!
