What in interesting beer.
This one pours out to a dark, ruby color in the glass with an average-sized head. The aroma is that of fruit, obviously, with the insane amount of raspberries used to make it. At first smell, the aroma is light but builds and builds until you really can take it in. This is one highly concentrated beer. The taste is very good and incorporates plums, raisins, caramel, and obviously fruit. There is a tartness to it that isn't overwhelming, nor is too light. It matches up with a residual sweetness that balances rather than being cloying. I felt like I was drinking a barleywine, lambic, red wine, bourbon and port all at the same time and enjoying it. Ridiculously overpiced, but a very, fine beer.

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!
