2014 bottle.

A: Pours a dark, dark red with some brown in there. Small, dense tan head, though it does stick around quite well. Minimal lacing.

S: Strong chocolate aroma, I was not expecting that. Lots of raspberries behind it - sweet raspberries. Decadent and rich.

T: Strong mix of chocolate and raspberries immediately. Chocolate is a nice smooth milk chocolate and the raspberries are syrupy and sweet. Nice blend, both are equal and complimentary to each other. Heavy breadiness in the finish with some raspberries in the background. Finish is pretty quick, mostly chocolate. Fairly sharp alcohol in the finish as well.

M: Heavy but surprisingly smooth. Not cloying or syrupy like I was expect. Remarkably drinkable for the ABV.

O: Really interesting eisbock. Reminiscent of chocolate-covered raspberries. Big rich flavors in this one, though it's fairly one-note (chocolate covered rasperries from start to finish). Does not taste as boozy as you'd expect for 15.5% but it still lets you know that it's a bruiser. Balance is superb and the drinkability is top-notch for the ABV.

This is a brand new batch and unfortunately it ha a very medicinal taste and smell that does not justify the incredibly high ratings I have seen

Really disappointed by this after all the hype. Tastes like carbonated raspberry syrup. Would be a nice pancake topper if reduced down to about 1/3 its volume, but at 30 bucks a bottle you're better off going to IHOP.
