Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

An ale brewed with a ridiculous amount of pureed raspberries (over a ton of 'em!). Fort has a Belgian-style base, then we follow a similar fermentation process to the one we use on our other super-high ABV beers, 120 Minute IPA and World Wide Stout.

49 IBU
ABV varies from 15-18%.

2011 bottle - it's been way too long since i last had this (2010).

a nice clean light amber pour with 2 fingers of head which diminished slowly and left behind a nice frothy lacing. smells of port wine barrels, raspberries, caramel. the flavor is VERY sweet, tons of raspberry, a huge alcohol warmth is a bit overwhelming but goes down smooth after the first few sips. lots of caramel, berry, wine barrel on the end of the palate. full body with low carbonation.. sticky on the lips, very booze heavy and warm.

this is an outstanding beer and i'm sad it hasn't been produced regularly in 2 years now. dfh needs to bring this one back for good, even if it's a small 12oz bottle like 120/wws.
