Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow color and a slightly hazy consistency. There was a big, foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A big, fruity aroma featuring raspberries, malt, a touch of hops and a lot of booze.

T: Tasted of raspberries, hops, and some malt. The alcohol, while somewhat well masked,is unavoidable. Nonetheless, this is a pretty solid flavor.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Medium-bodied.

D: Like a lot of DFH beers this one will not appeal to everyone. However, this is still a drinkable beer.

2011 Bottle

A - Pours a nice, clear, raspberry red color with a pronounced creamy lacing, no head.

S - Straight up raspberries and booze, even after four years!

T - Up front raspberries, no malt presence at all on the palate, and finishes with raspberries and booziness.

M - Heavy medium body, lip smacking sticky, noticeable warming on the way down, wet finish with the ABV evaporating off the top and leaving the sides on the tongue watering for more.

O - IMO, this beer scores way lower than what it deserves.
