4.17/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Really gorgeous. It's basically the color of raspberries. Bright red, minimal head.

S - Smells like raspberries. Quite sweet smelling, but with no booze to speak of. 15.5%, pretty impressive.

T - A little medicinal. A minimal alcohol presence. Big raspberry flavor. It's impressive how low the alcohol presence is, but it's not super complex.

M - Lower carbonation, quite smooth. Low alcohol presence.

O - I wish it seemed a little less medicinal in the taste, but it was quite a beer. In my opinion, it's not worth the price or trade bait, but it's an interesting beer to try and it was still very good. It would just have to be utterly incredible to justify what it takes to land one for me. Big thanks to Phil for bringing it to the bottle share. (757 characters)

6 oz bottle.

A - Reddish brown color with just enough of a head to know it's beer. The head goes away quickly.

S - Desert! Chocolate, toffee, raspberry, & booze. Sign me up.

T - A massive rich chocolate & toffee sweetness with the slight tartness of raspberry.

M - Thick, smooth & creamy.

D - This is a rich beer. 6 oz is good serving size. This could even be split with 2 people

I enjoyed this beer way more than I thought I would. Major props to Kuhnhenn for their "out of the box" approach here.

This is a desert beer perfect for after a meal along side some ice cream or chocolate desert of some sort. (614 characters)

2012 bottle Cheers for one that I've wanted to try forever, Kalvarez! Pours a viscous (rooby) red with some amber-orange at the edges, thin beige head that fades fast.

Holy crap, just a huge nose of caramel and raspberry candy, some sweet malt and a little milk chocolate. Taste is surprisingly very much the same. Sweet candy-like flavours. Like a raspberry tootsie-roll.

Thick and syrupy feel, low carbonation. A REAL SIPPER (word to my slack homies).

Very interesting. Surprised this isn't a more polarizing brew. I happen to like interesting so looks like everything's coming up Milhouse. (598 characters)

2004 Vintage. Thanks to Amatuerbeerguy for this sample.

Poured a dark cherry red with a one finger head that lasted, less than a minute.

Smell is outstanding. The only beer I can recall having so much more in the way of smell than it did in the area of taste. Smelled strongly of sweet red licorice.

Taste wasn't so much of red licorice as it was of muted raspberry (as you would expect).

Mouthfeel was thick but spotty. Not as coating as you would expect, but consistant.

Drinkability is pretty good. The alcohol is very well masked in this high alcohol brew. (576 characters)

cracked this baby open to celebrate the birth of our first child. Poured a dark crimson red, with a short tan head. some big chunks floating in my glass. Head stays put for the duration and becomes creamier, which is nice. Smells of thick raspberries, notes of chocolate, alcohol obvious but not off-putting. Huge sour raspberry taste, but offset by an equally huge chocolate malt presence that balances it perfectly. Alcohol lends a touch of bitterness to the raspberry. Finish is a nice bitter chocolate with hints of fruit. Thick and sticky, full bodied and decadent. Drinks great, though becomes slightly cloying towards the end of it. I think the bottle size is appropriate, even for splitting between two people. (718 characters)

Pours a murky brownish color with ruby highlights. Not much head or lacing. A bit of sediment.

Aroma is intense with a tart raspberry sting and belgian chocolate complimenting each perfectly. A little liquer like kick in the end finishes the smell.

Taste doesn't quite live up to aroma. A bit too chocolately and the raspberries seem a bit muddled. I know they use real raspberries but the flavor doesn't come out like I was hoping. Caramel, vanilla, and creamy all provide cover for the raspberries. Alcohol lurks and comes out in the finish but seems nowhere near the 13.5% it claims. A bit of citric chocolate finish is what I'm left with.

Quite smooth and enjoyable. There's a nice malty base and some depth to this offering. Not really a sipper in my book but too damn expensive not to be one. I liked this beer but I can't justify ever buying it again. (870 characters)

look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Dark red color with some tanish/brown in the mix. No head at all, not great looking, but the ruby color adds a lot to what would otherwise be a normal looking pour.

S - Raspberries and chocolate dominate the nose. A lot of maple maltiness in this seems to come through, smells like a nice dessert.

T - Tastes a lot like a chocolate covered raspberry and cherry. There is a hint of sour in this that keeps it from tasting perfect, maybe my bottle sat somewhere for too long. Minimal alcohol burn.

M - Dry and syrupy. Not much carbonation, pretty nice match for the taste.

D - Easy enough to drink, though the overall swetness would keep me from doing tons of it, probably good because of the high alcohol content. (720 characters)

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. (540 characters)

We crack the wax on a bottle of 2012 stock, pouring a syrupy looking brew of dark ruby red. It puts up a one finger head of big, latte colored bubbles on a hard pour, showing nice retention. Spots of lacing are left all around the glass. A chill haze permeates the clarity, with no sediment noted. Carbonation appears minimal, and the few bubbles seen are near microscopic. The aroma gives sugary sweet raspberry preserves, tinny metallics, and milky, chocolatey malts with a hearty roast. With warmth comes massive booziness, sweaty saltiness, fusel nail polish remover, cloven phenols, vanilla cake icing, and toasted raspberry seeds. Our first impression is that this beer is exactly what is advertised, with huge smoothing sweetness and vanilla coolness to cut the massive boozy top. As we sip, vanilla wafers, raspberry jam, milk chocolaty malts, burnt caramel sugars, and stinging booze start things off. The peak shows hugely enhanced sweetness and earthen depth to the raspberry component, which is juicy and authentic. Peppery, fusel alcohol burns its way in, flash boiling chunky raspberry preserves, brown and amber malts, chalked yeast, and soy sauce saltiness into blended oblivion. Washing through the finish is continued berry sweetness of raspberry and strawberry, GERD-inducing tequila-like burn, clover honey sweetness, cloying sugars, and light residual milk chocolates. The aftertastes breathes of more of the same, with clean honey sweetness, big berry fruitiness, fusel ethanol, amber and chocolatey malts, faint roast, mild metallics, and cold, brown breadiness. The body is full, and the carbonation is low. The mouth and lips are coated with immense stickiness, while the tongue streaks down with final burning booze dryness, following this slick, oily, impenetrably thick coating. The booze and sugars also give pucker. Each sip gives stark slurp, pop, and smack, but lesser cream and froth. The abv is massive but well hidden, and the beer sips surprisingly well.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was the strong flavoring, with hugely inclusive raspberry authenticity, cooling vanilla cut, and expertly hidden booziness. This all blends to make a highly drinkable brew given that abv. Honestly, through and through this is not very complex swill, but it remains true to what is advertised, just on a bigger scale than you might have prepared for. With warmth the booze certainly blossoms, but otherwise is well hidden through the nose and the palate. This beer is undeniably huge, and takes courage to tackle, but if you’ve got the patience, and the friends to share with, it is a rare, true treat. (2,641 characters)

2007 Vintage. Split with my fiancee with an iced chocolate brownie each.

A: Murky, brackish red-brown... the pour into the first glass has a minuscule fizzy head that quickly died, the second glass had nothing. No lacing.

S: Bright tart raspberries, chocolate, caramel and sweet sugars. Dessert wine-like. Incredibly inviting with layers of all things sweet and desserty.

T: Muted raspberries, chocolate and caramel abound. Surprisingly sour. Very rich, too rich in fact even for the pairing with the chocolate brownie. A bit too concentrated flavor and booze-wise.

M: Smooth, slick, slightly acidic, with a slight alcohol burn in the finish. Port-like in weight and feel.

D: This is an interesting beer, and one I am glad I tried... its a bit too profound for me. If it showed a bit more restraint it would move up in my book. (832 characters)

Huge thanks to moshea for this 2007 187mL bottle in a recent trade!

A: Pours a hazy, murky brownish, caramel, reddish color with barely any bubbles popping up. Not really the best looking beer to me!

S: Smells like lots of tart, aged raspberries and even sour apples, lots of caramel, molasses, brown sugar, raisins and maple

T: Very similar to the smell, but quite a large amount of sourness that I wasn't expecting - still has tart raspberries, sour apples, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, and raisins. The flavors are really nice and complex, but I probably would have preferred that the sourness not be there. I'm even wondering if this bottle might be

M: Mouthfeel is really good on this one. It's full bodied and the carbonation sticks out enough as it's rolling across the palate without being too bubbly.

D: You definitely can't tell that this is 13.5%, assuming that this batch really is. The flavor is interesting and complex, but like I said, the sourness does not help this beer for me so I'm not yearning for sip after sip. (1,042 characters)

Pours a dark molasses like color which thins near the edges like a cognac with a minimal head which disappears quickly. Strawberry is the dominant smell and first thing I detect as I taste. Its not syrupy but thick and this is seen as small amounts cover the edge of the glass rather than run back after the initial sips. Very similar taste to a Trois Pistoles minus the carbonation. This is a wonderful after dinner/dessert drink and I thank BA for given me the oppurtunity to access this beer. (495 characters)

2004 vintage.

Pours a thin tan head over a deep mahogany body. Head recedes without lace. Strong aromas of caramel backed by vinous fruit, chocolate and brandy. More caramel malt up front in the flavor accompanied by rapberries and more subtle vinous fruit and chocolate. Quite sweet. A berry-induced tartness rears its head toward the finish. Full-bodied, medium to low carbonation and very smooth and creamy. The raspberry flavor lingers.

A interesting brew worthy of sipping and contemplation. Several waves of complex flavors that blend well in the overall picture, but each have their moment in the sun. Still, I would definitely ay the caramel is the major player, and its not any run of the mill caramel flavor—it has a musty almost burnt character to it that lends a distinctive character to the lager. A unique brew, worthy of special occasions or a pensive winter night. (888 characters)

(bottle courtesy of alexsdad06! 2007 vintage) Pours into a rochefort chalice. Pours cloudy dark brown-red color with no real head. Smells like a raspberry truffle with a bit of alcohol. Mmmmm. Taste is sweet and tart. The raspberry is quite tart with sweetness also coming from the fruit and seemingly from chocolate and caramel. Full bodied with a slick texture. Finish is very smooth and has some noticeable alcohol, but its not distracting. This is a very unique beer and I’m very happy to have tried this. Many, many thanks Brad! (535 characters)

HUGE chocolate malt aroma with ample sweet raspberry notes. Muddies amber in color with no real head. Big blast of chocolate and raspberry. Tastes like a raspberry truffle indeed. Matta mentioned Captain Crunch and I get that too. It’s so damn tasty it’s hard to believe it isn’t just a raspberry chocolate puree. There are mild caramel hints, but this mostly just a chocolate/raspberry party. I can’t detect any alcohol in it just smooth tasty goodness. (458 characters)

It poured a deep ruby red with just a hint of head. The body of this brew is beautiful and candy-apple in color. Unfortunately the head just wasn't there, and I had to dock it a point.
When the beer's cold, the smell isn't that interesting. But when it warms up, WOW! It smells like a chocolate raspberry truffel. The taste? Imagine combining chocolate covered cherries, a tootsie pop and beer. It's really remarkable. Mouthfeel is oily, rather heavy and warming. Drinkability is ok, but it's not 'beer-drinkable.' It's more like a port or a sweet dessert wine. (562 characters)

2007 vintage.

Pours a very dark ruby red color that's almost brown with plum colored edges and a thin beige ring that slowly fades. Not much in the way of lacing.

Sweet, slightly boozy aroma that surprisingly is still fruit forward after four years. Lots of sweet dark raspberry and other dark fruits along with some dark chocolate cake, caramel and toffee. Subtle medicinal/syrup quality.

Fuller bodied than expected with some soft carbonation and a really nice balance of sweet, syrupy fruit, silky dark malts and subtle boozy heat/sweetness. Similarly to the aroma, there is still a surprising amount of juicy raspberry and other dark fruit notes. Faint tartness with some cranberry before being countered by hits of chocolate cake, caramel and toffee. Slightly syrupy but this doesn't hurt the mouthfeel much. A nice boozy warmth in the finish but the high ABV is excellently masked with only little heat. This beer is dangerously drinkable at this stage so 6.3oz is a perfect serving. Complex with a good amount of raspberry still in there. The perfect drink for after a huge holiday meal. (1,100 characters)

Huge thanks to a very generous BA for this treat!

'07. Raspberry Eisbock pours a reddish-brown, red garnet. Cloudy. No head to speak of which detracts from an otherwise nice appearance.

Initial sweet fruit aroma; raspberries, cherries. Vanilla and alcohol complement. Seems the oxidation balances out the sweet fruit. "Bag of Halloween candy" smell comes to mind, haha.

Wow, taste is nothing like the aroma. The smell points to a sweet, sugar bomb, but this is not the case one bit. It is certainly sweet, but time (I'm assuming) has leveled it out bringing a balance of bread and earthiness to the sweet, tart raspberry. Rich. Alcohol melds well into the mix. 4.5 just for sheer originality.

This beer is slick, sticky, and resiny, yet the carbonation is lively and pushes through this big beer with ease. Smooth. Lingering aftertaste.

This was a great beer experience. Speaks to what beer can be and pushes the boundaries. (932 characters)

A-Body is a very hazy red/brown hue-pours with absolutely no head- but fogginess is thick and dynamic.

S-Rich red raspberries, dark chocolate, caramel, and some boozy undertones. The raspberries really mix with the chocolate bock tones well.

T- Mild to moderate sour raspberries, creamy, cocoa upfront. Cocoa comes through more for the finish as an alcohol burn intensifies. A moderate sting of alcohol and a hint of cocoa come through for the finish-what lingers is a hint of raspberry and a big alcohol warmth.

M-Mild to moderate carbonation and fairly smooth light body with very little alcohol consistency.

D- For a nontraditional example of a hard to find style that it crammed with alcohol-this is really really good-happy to finally have the opportunity to enjoy this one! (783 characters)

2007 bottle, drinking in 4/2011.

Looks like maple syrup. Very little head but some remains on the edges throughout.

Super malty, boozy smell, like a barleywine that's turned over but hasn't gone bad.

Ah, beautiful taste. Like chocolate covered raspberries. Very tart finish. Toffee malts in there too. A great swirl of flavors. Right combination of sweet and tart and well-blended too. Oak and cherry flavors too. The booze is definitely present, but the booze is needed to put an edge on the sweetness/tartness. (515 characters)

A big thanks to mjmadsen21 to trading this for me in person. We cracked open the bottle right away! Poured into a wine-goblet glass from a 12oz bottle. No bottling or freshness date, but does this need one??

Pours a beautiful, jewel ruby-red appearance that immediately brought me back to my glory days of finding Cantillon krieks everywhere in Europe. There was surprisingly some head (as well as any carbonation AT ALL) that cascaded into the glass, that produced a little bit of light soda carbonation that quickly dissipated as it sat around. Eventually all of the bubbles disappeared, but the ruby color stuck around to give this the look of either a lightly tinged dessert wine or fruit based liqueur. Very viscous. Alcohol legs are enormous. Transcends the eisbock style here - this is a world-class looking fruit infused beer!

The aroma is definitely chock-filled with raspberries, but there's definitely all kinds of wild nuances going on here. First, on the subject of raspberries, this smells like a cross between a fresh batch of raspberries that you open up right out of the box, with a semi-tarty yet candied feel. Otherwise, this ranges to the candied, sweetened raspberry flavor, filled with lots of powdered sugar, as well as traces of milk chocolate, grassy hoppy notes, near brandy-based booziness... Not really a sour or a sweetened fruit beer, but rather something that folds the envelope. There's a lightly tinged, near rustic graininess, but otherwise the candied raspberries and grassy texture are the ones winning here. Slightly stinging, but otherwise really unlike anything I've caught thus far.

The flavor is definitely sweet and candied, but it's still very bearable and fascinating, especially considering what's going on in this beer. First off, the fact that this is a lager immediately reveals itself in the flavor, with its crisp body, cracked grainy feel found in pilsners, as well as lack of heaviness on the subject of malts. Secondly, the raspberries continue to be pervasive in a candied yet juicy manner to the point of adding character to otherwise doomed style that eisbocks tend to be. Finally, the ABV is dangerously well hidden, yet eventually creeps its way around to add an extra character similar to fortified wines that accentuates the fruity notes in a rather satisfying way. There's a toasted malty flavor here, believe it or not. I also am a sucker for sweet, syrupy, fruit-focused stuff, as it seems, as this ranges to being a raspberry liqueur despite it having the crisp, highly drinkable qualities of any great lager. Unbelievable that this is above 15% in alcohol. I can barely taste it - although I do get a little bit of heat as it warms.

Really unique and refreshing, although I'm glad I split this with someone else, in the end. Don't go in thinking this is a sour or anything - this is a combination of a strong lager with a raspberry liqueur first and foremost. And yet, there's a candied flavor and grassy, rustic nature that makes this really interesting in the long run. It's definitely sweet, but it has these funky aromas and juicy character found in doppelbocks and sweetened Lambics that makes it unlike anything I've had. Definitely an alcoholic monster, though, so watch how you handle it. Absolutely worth a try. (3,289 characters)

Got a few bottles of the 2007 vintage in different trades with Viggo, TheBlackMallard and goryshkewych. Thanks, guys! The stream by the gym I go to is frozen over and I figured now's as good a time as any to drink this.

A: Deep raspberry red with a thin tan head that recedes rather quickly. Exceptional clarity with some visible carbonation

S: Ridiculously intoxicating with raspberries and milk chocolate. This really smells like some exquisite, high-end candy. Despite being served at cellar temp, I'm not getting any alcohol, it's beautifully hidden. Mildly vinous, caramel and vanilla are noticeable.

T: Big in body with rich raspberry flavor and creamy caramel milk chocolate. There's notes of vanilla and almost a little bit of spice ( a combination of the alcohol and the fruit?) Alcohol does appear on the finish, lending a very graceful warmth, this also does contribute to a mild drying effect.

M: The soft carbonation works with the biggish body, lending to a pretty enjoyable feel. Long, sweet finish with some caramel and vanilla being noticeable

D: This is the very definition of a sipper. The serving size is perfect too.

Notes: This is almost liqueur-like and pretty much redefines what a beer can be. (1,225 characters)

2007 Vintage

Poured into Ommegang Chalice.

Pours hardly any tan head. No retention obviously or lace for that matter. Color is very interesting. it is a ruby hued caramel brown.

Aroma: Wow, this is unlike anything I have smelt before. It has a big chocolate raspberry flavor going on, with some caramel mixed in. After is warms up just a little bit, the alcohol begins to appear. A very sweet beer with a big malt backbone. Unique.

Taste: Wow, this is the after dinner beer of after dinner beers. Huge chocolate raspberry flavor. Very fresh raspberries. I can definitely taste the bock portion of this beer as it is quick malty. Nice caramel texture to it. The aging produces a nice oak and vanilla taste in the background.

Mouthfeel: This beer is somewhat smooth, a little crisp, and a tad hot. Full boded with a medium amount of carbonation. This beer ends with a really clean aftertaste. This beer is an incredible sipper. Very thick and full.

Overall, this is a really unique beer. I like the combination of a bock and fresh raspberries. Very filling. At first I was a little disappointed with the mini bottle, but I soon realized that this bottle will be a perfect size. An amazing bock, or eisbock for that matter. (1,228 characters)

A- Pours a deep scarlet, very similar to fourth dimensia only without a head.

S- Second brew i've tried from kuhnhenn, second absolutely intoxicating aroma. Deep raspberries much like New Glarus raspberry tart but there's something behind it, namely a well hidden alcohol aroma that lingers in the nostrils.

T- Much more interesting of a brew than the aroma let on. Nice, however truncated, raspberry flavor followed by quite a bit of alcohol warming. This beer is very hot right now and I think it would round out a little more with some age under its belt.

M- Thick with ample carbonation.

D- It's hard to comment on the drinkability of this beer. On one hand, I love it's complexity but on the other the booziness needs to cool off a bit. An amazing brew that i'm sure i'll try again. (791 characters)

Bottle@Home shared with my father to celebrate his 60th birthday.

Appearance: Dark red with almost no head. Quite beautiful.

Smell: Raspberries, Malt, Grain, Fudge, Vanilla.

Taste: Malt, Chocolate, Raspberries, Caramel, Vanilla.

Mouthfeel: A solid malt base with a bit of tartness from the berries. Smooth, complex and supertasty.

A truly interesting take on a eisbock and one of the better beers i’ve had lately. (425 characters)
