look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
A 1 pint/9.6 fl oz poured into a glass mug. Bottled in 2008 and cellared.
Appearance: Pours a clear pumpkin/ amber orange with a small white head that stays throughout. No real lacing.
Smell: Raspberries, raspberry tart, candy, and alcohol on the nose. Very malty. The raspberries bring both sweet and sour qualities.
Taste: Both sweet and sour in the taste. Nicely balanced. At 18% the alcohol is present in the taste and warms as it is consumed.
Mouthfeel: Syrupy and somewhat sticky over the palate. A sweet beginning but finishes tart. Extremely Slight carbonation.
Overall: This is truly one of my favorite beers. A unique beer even for the style. I was actually lucky enough to meet Sam at the old Brickskeller in Washington DC and begged him not to stop brewing this awesome beer.
Serving type: bottle
