Big thanks to spacecoyote for that botte from 2007. Looks great, the beer in the glass also. Old-malty aroma, nice raspberry notes. Tastes strong, quite malty and dry. The fruity notes come back in the aftertaste. Nicely fruity-prickly on the tongue, very well balanced. A very enjoyable beer!

For my 600th BA review, I poured this one from a tiny 6.3oz green bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

A= This beer poured a murky brown with reddish highlights and a thin 1/4" light tan head. The head disappeared in seconds, leaving a thin ring beind. No lace to speak of (but none was expected either).

S= Smelled like fruit pie (raspberry and cherry) complete with a rich and heavy malt sweetness. This was tempered somewhat by a fruity tartness and boozy alcohol heat. This reminded me very much of a fruit brandy.

T= Started off with big malty richness, reminiscent of bread pudding. The fruit came in next combining with big notes of chocolate to make a near perfect chocolate-covered-cherry taste. The raspberry emerged from this making me wonder if I ever tasted cherries at all. Cool trick that. The finish was boozy and full of alcohol.

MF= Closer to heavy than medium bodied, with an active carbonation level and decent crispness. Nice tongue-coating richness.

D= Though the ABV is pretty well masked, the flavors make this a sipper for sure, and a damned interesting one. I would happily sip this on many a cold winter night if I only better access to more!
