Pours a deep dark red burgundy that leaves behind no head nor lacing throughout. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, chocolate and raspberries. The flavor gave off a heavy sweet and light bitter with a long fruity, raspberry (lots of them), and caramel finish. Full mouthfeel along with an oily/sticky texture, and the carbonation was flat throughout. Overall, quite tasty beer with some underlying raspberry-like booze to finish off. Glad to have tried this one and I probably will not seek this one out as it is reported to be $30 a bottle.

2012 Vintage

Thanks to Chris for sharing this bottle, I was really looking forward to giving it a try.

Pours a dark translucent red, little to no head.

Smell is of raspberries (duh) and plastic. Not very appealing.

The raspberries definitely prevail in the taste, and a slight chocolatey flavor comes through as well. A bit sweet, and very hot. The flavors are really very muddled, I was expecting a much purer raspberry taste.

This feels very thick on the tongue, but is also extremely hot and tingles the tongue as you savor. Never felt such a hot beer on the tongue before.

Overall, this beer was a miss for me. I'm very glad I was able to try it, as I now know that it is absolutely not worth the hunt or the price tag.

2007 Vintage

Thanks again to Chris for sharing the 2007 bottle.

Similar characteristics to the 2012, except the heat was gone. Less raspberry and more chocolate flavor. I prefered this to the 2012, but it is still not a beer I particularly enjoy.
