2012 bottle, thanks to ineedbeer Pours dark and cloudy ruby brown with no head. Aroma is raspberries and some vanilla. Flavour is sweet, a mixture of port wine and dessert liquor. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet and lots of raspberries coated with sugar. A slow sipper.

Thanks to Owen for the bottle
Raspberry brown color, just a thin collar. No head
Nose is chocolate covered raspberry. Enticing nose and almost perfect in the balance,
Taste is chocolate, caramel, tart raspberry. Tastes like the old school cherry redskins in every way. Just a slight bit syrupy and a bit boozy but otherwise a sublime beer. Fun to sip.

Bottle, shared. 2014 version. Pours dark but clear red, slight pink ring of foam. Massive raspberry jam, hint of nuts and chocolate. Holy god, this is boozy. Like iced raspberry cider. Pretty dang impressive considering the abv and freshness. To the cellar.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 Bottle, huge thanks to ICEatALAMO for this one. Popped open by myself to celebrate a 4.0 semester.
Pours a deep burgundy/red with a small off-white head. Aroma is raspberries, chocolate, caramel, just a touch of alcohol, quite similar to Chambord. Taste follows suit, with lots of chocolate/raspberry goodness, with a roasty chocolate finish. Alcohol is pretty much non-existent considering the ABV; super easy to drink. Beautiful beer.
