Pours an amber color but with a shade towards red/pink - definitely showing some raspberry color. Head is decent at pour, lingers, and laces for a bit along with the beer but then disappates. Smell from this 1 yr old brew is somewhat boozy but with a berry sweet note present. Taste is heavy sweet upfront with candy showing, alcohol burn on the back of the throat through the middle (but expected at 18%), and then raspberry and candy to finish. A treat to be enjoyed every once in a while!

Poured from a 750 bottle into a snifter glass. This was a one year old bottle.

A: A clear reddish maroon color with a tiny off white head. No lacing at all.

S: Wow, lots of raspberry on the nose coupled with some sugar sweetness and loads of alcohol.

T: The raspberry flavors are massive. They mix with a huge sugar and candy sweetness that stays through. Towards the finish the massive alcohol comes in to take over on the finish. It's not totally off-putting, but it makes a massive showing. Sweetness finishes it out.

M: Full, coating, syrupy sweet and very little carbonation.

O: I give DFH props for really making this a huge raspberry bomb. Where I question it is who wants 750ml of this huge alcohol sweet bomb? Why not just make them 12 ounce bottles and then one might be able to enjoy one at a sitting. There were two of us and we couldn't finish the bottle. Again, I give them props for their forward thinking on beer, but this one misses the mark on drinkability.

Good, but far from great.
