Big thanks to Thorpe429 for sharing this one, 2007 vintage.
Beer poured a dark reddish brown. The smell was all raspberry and in a very good way, smelled extremely fresh for a beer that's been aged so long, I was worried some of the raspberry would fade. The taste was also very raspberry-forward, but more flavors started to appear as I drank more of it. Thorpe described it as "raspberry tootsie rolls" and I couldn't get that description out of my head because it's spot-on. The chocolate flavors were more subtle than the raspberry, but the combination was excellent, and it wasn't overly sweet. While this beer was extremely drinkable for a beer so high in ABV, I totally understand why it comes in such a tiny bottle. It's a great beer in small quantities, but the sweetness and booziness would probably start to wear on you if you drank too much.
Overall, this was a very impressive and unique beer and I'm quite glad I got a chance to try it.

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.
