2007 6.3 oz bottle split three ways, just enough for a tasting portion for each of us.

KRE pours murky brownish red, no head, but I didn't really expect one on a two finger pour. I have to be honest it doesn't look terribly appetizing. The aroma is musty with an underlying damp mold quality. Also raspberries, of course, caramel, and some alcohol. The age shows in the aroma and makes me worry 3 years has not been kind to this little guy. Tastes much more tart than the smell suggested. Raspberries, caramel, chocolate, and bitter citrus rind. It's like raspberry cheesecake with caramel drizzle and maybe some chocolate in the form of an oreo cookie crust. Like one of my buddies said, not a dessert beer but dessert itself. This would be hugely satisfying just by itself after a great meal, forget about pairing it. It's real syrupy and lightly carbonated. The 2.1 oz pour makes it tough to judge drinkability all I know is I want a lot more.

2004 vintage poured from a very small bottle to a snifter. The liquid is dark dark reddish orange with very little carbonation. The head does not exist except by force. This takes a lot away from the appearance. Good color however.

The smell keeps knocking me over, It is like a Chocolate Chambord cake. Wow Most excellent.

The taste follows and does not disappoint. Raspberries, chocolate, alcohol. nothing better for desert.

The mouthfeel falls off a bit with the lack of carbonation & the body could be a tad thicker.

The drinkability is great, I would enjoy this beer most of the time easy. I am quite glad I have 2 more left. Thank you NorthernTimber for answering my ISO call to to trade. I really am happy with our trade, thank you and Prosit. Hope to set you on the Woodward Ave cruse some day. MK
