Thanks to googzoid10 for letting me try one I've been wanting for a while!
Mine is 11.9% ABV from 07
Pours a very still chestnut with minimal head & an oily sheen. Not much lacing or head retention
S: Raspberries & oaky notes
T: Raspberries, chocolate, leafy hops a kiss of booze up front. Dark fruit mixes in as this warms, plus a touch of dryness, plus more raspberry & chocolate. Finishes dry, tart & very truffle-like, also with figs & port notes
MF: Chewy, very dry with minimal carbonation & very warming
Great drinkability, it's complexity draws you in & the ABV is barely noticeable. Over-priced at a $1.60 an ounce perhaps, but a bloody marvelous indulgence! Better than my overall score, but I have set standards on appearance (although I think 20% is too much weight)...

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.
