Huge thanks to TATURBO for the share! Thanks Chris!

poured into snifter glass.

bottle 148/168.

reviewwed from notes taken 01/03/13.

Appearance: black bodied beer with thin creamy tan head. Drops down quickly to no head.

Smell: huge raspberry nose. Tootsie rolls. Just a hint of nail polish. Wheres the barrel at?

Taste: Fresh raspberries and lots of them. Honestly this tastes just like hot chocolate with raspberries in it. Again no barrel presence to speak of.

Mouthfeel: high end of medium bodied beer with low carbonation levels. well hidden ABV.

Overall: Its just okay. The interesting part is that I could go to the store and pick up a packet of Land O Lakes brand raspberry hot chocolate and i swear that this beer tastes exactly like it! So for all those folk who got this 3F brewery only bottle at a cost of $35; I am truely sorry. I would have been very dissapointed by this beer (probably even a bit angry at 3 Floyds) if I had bought it myself. My biggest problem with the beer is there are no barrel notes in the nose or taste of this beer. Its a barrel aged beer! Wheres the barrel notes 3 Floyds? Did those burn down with the brewery too? *Disclaimer this is just a joke, so anyone who reads my review please dont take this statement seriously.

Half inch light mocha head. Leaves a cap and collar.

Good nose. Tart, seemingly fresh raspberries.

Hot/sharp raspberries, thats how I'd describe it. Late chocolate aspect leaves the mouth watering. Nothing resembling a barrel presence. 10%abv sounds about right.

Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

Different, it was like BCBS Bramble on steroids. Steroids including all the home run hitting record and the assholishness. Worth a sample. Thanks for opening this up TATURBO.
