Thanks to hoppymeal for this one. Vintage 2007.

This one pours a bright strawberry and amber that fades to a peppery yellow and then to nearly clear. No head on this one at all.

Smells of cotton candy, maple syrup, caramels, chocolate and raspberry hard candies from grandma's house with a little bit of alcohol.

Tastes surprisingly thin with a rough cane sugar and a touch of molasses and honey. There's a powerful but delicately smooth alcohol here. Finishes up sweetly with chocolate that melts into thin raspberry hard candies.

Fells light and thin that really helps with the delivery.

A candidate for aging without question. I'd like to be at the next release to pick up a case to slowly sip on over a decade.

Appearance - pours a caramel and dark cherry color into a Brand (from Holland) flute. Not much head at first but works up a reverse head of maybe a finger. Fades down slowly and is hanging on quite well despite a mere bottle size of six-ish ounces. Has the beginnings of lacing but the fluid is so thick that the bubbles can't cling to the glass.

Aroma - heavy and sweet, reminds me of that hard candy you get at Christmas that comes in the tin. Some pieces are like wavy ribbon, and there's these pieces that have that raspberry jelly stuff in the middle. This beer smells like the tin, but with an alcohol boost.

Taste - chocolatey, tart raspberry, warm alcohol. For a dessert beer, it is a nice mix of flavors. The aftertaste has a tart, somewhat bitter snap to it, and with increasing abv warmth.

Mouthfeel - medium to thinnish mouthfeel, though it doesn't really look that way. Decent carbonation, but the mouthfeel to me doesn't accentuate the bigness of the beer enough.

Drinkability - a fine beer to have many of (in the cellar, not the belly). Big thanks to JW347 for the trade and the good times at DLD08.
