Graciously shared by MbpBugeye; thanks Seth!
Crimson color, some burnt amber & rusty hues. A patient, determined pour resulted in about a 1/8th inch head that dispersed quickly, leaving a collar of retention. No lace.
The aroma is all sorts of raspberry this & that. Very dense, too. Raspberry puree, raspberry concentrate, raspberry liqueur. Imagine if cough syrup smelled good. Sugary overtones. Faint breadiness manifests way in the back as it warms. Incredible.
Similarly wrought with raspberry, the taste is comparably dense. It's also really sugary with a modest twinge of tartness. A dry, subtle bitterness creeps in mid-section. The latter half finds the emergence of a moderate boozy swoon, hints of toastiness, mild cocoa notions & subtle spiciness.
The feel is quite dense. The high sugar content makes for a fully appreciable granular presence. Low carbonation, especially after it has a chance to open up. Boozy finish. Definitely warming.
This makes for a nice, slow-sipping, dessert of a beer. It's interesting enough to outshine the sugary aspects. Really enjoyable.
