Bottle - Amber pour with a nice off-white head. Smells of raspberry, with a bit of chocolate - smooth and well-integrated. Taste is smooth raspberry with a bit of caramel and a touch of heat. Nice warmth on the finish. A bit watery and a little thin, but overall a very smooth, pleasant beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The head is sparse and dissipates quickly. The color is deep copper with a hazy look. Aroma wise it is very heavy raspberry. I can also get a citrus smell but it is over powered by the raspberry. Taste wise raspberry. Nothing else to be honest. Mouthfeel is slightly tart with a bitter liquor bite to finish. Over all the raspberry does a great job hiding the high alcohol. It’s an interesting beer to makes me wonder what would it be like some sour notes in there.
