6.3 oz bottle from 2007 poured into a snifter. Thanks jrallen34 for this huge Want!
Pours clear rust brown with pink highlights with some bubbles, but hardly a head. A solid oz of dark dregs at the bottom. Great malty notes in the aroma, akin to a fine barleywine with some oxidation. Dark fruit, toasted coconut, dessert wine. And raspberry.
The raspberries, initially mute really open up with time and warmth. Still, the fruit has died down quite a bit, assuming it was strong to begin with. Tastes very fruity: figs, dates, prunes and raspberries. The taste is sharp and tannic, with a slightly bittering and amazingly dry finish. The alcohol warmth and raspberry dessert linger.
Medium body and very low carbonation. The 13.50% ABV is hardly felt. Haters might call it cough syrup like but this is right up my alley. A tremendous beer! I have no doubt that Kuhnhenn has it down when it comes to strong ales and lagers (?).

4.73/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
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!
