Close in hue to grape juice with a slight white cap that quickly dissipates.

The aroma is quite inviting, with the raspberry up front and a dose of chocolate in the mix. Okay, childhood memories of a raspberry tootsie pop are unavoidable.

Flavor delivers the goods that the nose promises: big,full raspberry taste with some definite tartness that never reaches the level of puckering, and chocolate flavors compliment this elixir with a hint of booze poking through.

Medium bodied, low carbonation, some interesting and lasting tartness on the palate.

A great drinking experience all around and an excellent beer. Highly recommend this one!

The beer comes in a lovely reddish amber color.

The aroma hits exactly with lots of fresh raspberry, a caramel sweetness, a bit of booze in there.

The flavor follows with a burst of juicy raspberry and then it moves onto a caramel malt sweetness and sweet syrup character. There’s a hint of booze at the end, but the alcohol is extremely well hidden. There’s a bit of carbonation in there as well to help the mouthfeel.

A dangerously drinkable beer and extremely tasty.

2007 Bottling

This is yet another great brew sent to me courtesy of hoppymeal, thanks Derek! Kuhnhenn's Raspberry Eisbock pours like syrup into my flute which creates a problem conjuring up a head. The body is dark and murky, the color of raspberry juice that while dark manages to glow around the edges of the glass when backlit. I did manage to get a thin skimming of head that quickly fizzled to nothing but a thin ecru collar. The thin collar that's there leaves behind sheet lacing that slowly slides back into the body.

The smell of this eisbock is out of this world good. Fresh ripe raspberry puree jumps from the glass right off the bat and is quickly followed by rich dark chocolate. There's a faint booziness in the back that only adds to the incredibly rich aroma. This beer is like dessert in a bottle, I can't get over how perfectly sweet the raspberry is and how perfectly rich the dark chocolate is. How do you get this aroma into a bottle?

The flavor is exactly what the aroma suggested. I thought it would be tough to keep up with the aroma on this beer but the flavor does just that. Freshly pureed raspberries are drizzled with molten dark chocolate. There's a quick flash of bread pudding but the chocolate and raspberries take center stage. This is one amazing beer!

This is a sipper/nightcap sort of beer but it fits this beer perfectly. The body is rich and thick with a coating quality that keeps the tongue busy for awhile. Mellow carbonation keeps this beer slowly moving while the raspberry and chocolate sweetness hangs out on the tongue for awhile.

Even though this is a sipper it's a beer I would be happy sipping all night long. The 13% isn't even noticeable and this beer just keeps on flowing.

This is one of the best beers I've had in awhile. I can't figure out how Kuhnhenn packed that flavor into this beer. I would love to get my hands on a case of this stuff. Thanks for the bottle Derek!
