A gift to my wife from my good friend Jay23.

2007 vintage poured chilled into a wine glass. Fragrant. A deep, rich, full raspberry flavor, the most authentic and genuine fruit flavor I've encountered in beer, its so real that you can practically feel the delicate texture of the skin of the berry. The chocolate is less assertive than the fruit, but it is clearly evident. Mild dark malt flavor. The caramel is less assertive still. Not very big bodied. Wine-like. The high alcohol content is hidden completely.

This is superior in several respects to the New Glarus fruit beers, which are very good. This is more balanced, more restrained, less sacchariney, and perhaps more complex. Plus its bottle conditioned and not pasteurized.

My main complaint is the small 187 ml serving size, which my wife and I split.

Served in a tulip right at Kuhnhenn in Warren. The color was a dark chocolate brown, with an amazingly creamy, thick head for such a high ABV. The smell was a wonderful mix of raspberry tartness and chocolate richness. The taste was a wonderful mix of the tartness of the raspberry and the fairly sweet chocolatey maltiness....rather than competing with each other, they accentuated each other nicely (like a chocolate-covered cherry), and there was absolutely no alcohol to be noticed whatsoever! Mouthfeel was very rich and thick. As for drinkability, I could have these, especially in the winter, until hell froze over.

This was the beer that I was definitely hoping to get my hands on in Michigan, and thanks to kindness beyond the call of duty from Brett and Eric Kuhnhenn, I was able to go back and split a bottle with my brother, and I was sure glad that I did. For this is truly a world-class beer...just sooo good, so thick and chocolatey and raspberry, and believe me somehow they meld together into such goodness. This may well truly have been my favorite beer in the world, and I would do anything to have this one again.
