2011 version

A - Pours a hazy dark raspberry color with an off white head.

S - A very acidic smelling, raspberry tartness comes through as well along with a nice oak character.

T - To me, the raspberry really shines here. At first taste, the raspberry comes through then a moment later you're hit with a good amount of sour. The oak comes through the midway and on the backend.

M - Light bodied and medium carbonation. It's a really dry beer that hides the ABV wonderfully.

O - It's not hugely complex, but the beauty is you know what you're getting into.

Picked up a bottle of this on the recommendation of both bartenders at Always Ron's in hagerstown. They absolutely nailed it. I gave it a perfect taste, and perfect overall as I could not believe the ABV. Unbelievably drinkable for over 11%. Awesome, hope to buy again despite the cost.
