This pours a kind of brass hue but fills to a dark garnet with a slight copper edge and a minimal tan fizz dying to a thin film and thick collar.

Smell is toasted bread with raspberry and cherry hard candies.

Taste is undeniably medicinal, of the cherry variety. It has a very strong tang and tingle--while not hot, the strength is apparent, kind of like ginger ale. A touch of cobbler runs under the sharp, medicinal red fruit.

Feel is crisp and sticky, again kind of like ginger ale, with that familiar sting.

Major disappointment.

2014 Vintage. Really enjoyed this as it was a change of pace. Like a strong ale meets fruit beer. Boozy yet not hot. Strong dark malty raspberry. I bet this continues to age well. Have a 16 I might sit on for a while and revisit this.

2012 vintage. Amazing. Loads of raspberry with tons of honey and some caramel. No notes of chocolate that I could pick up. Super easy to drink at 15.5%.

Clear red with no real head.

Smells of raspberry purée

Amazing raspberry flavor. Smooth and deep. Like blushing monk but better.

Super smith with a nice aftertaste.

Great beer.

Wow! Great Eisbock! Red brown opaque clay color pour, zero head likely because of the ABV, and intense raspberry prune caramel molasses notes on the nose and palate. Rich syrupy mouthfeel!

Strong beer! Smooth raspberry flavor is nice. Definitely a sipper due to strength.

Murky dark amber color with a bit of tan foam. Aroma has raspberries with brown sugar, caramel malt and toasted notes. Taste starts sweet and fruity with raspberry jam, sticky malt and sugar, slightly tart fruity finish. Medium, syrupy sticky body with low carbonation. The raspberry notes go very well with the sweet, malty flavors.

Bottle poured into snifter; clear, copper color. No noticeable carbonation. Not a raspberry fan but had to give this a go! Raspberry, raisins, chocolates greet nose. Medium bodied well balanced with chocolate/raspberry moving easily across the palate. Alcohol is easily is smooth....a dessert beer.
