Light amber color. Aroma of sugary fruit, alcohol. No carbonation, thick syrup, sweetness, alcohol finish. Not my favorite offering. A little ambitious with the ABV leads to a not so great offering.

(bottle - 750 ml - 2005 vintage) Been holding onto this one for a while so I wasnít sure how it wouldíve held up. Murky red pour with a puffy white head. Aroma still has some good sweetness to it. Flavor starts off with a bit of stale raspberry but opens up as it goes on. Still has some raspberry to it with a lightly tart finish. Held up nicely.

Many thanks to Kappldav123 for sharing this bottle! Clear red amber with a lasting off-white head. The aroma is fresh raspberry. Surprisingly there is no alcohol in the aroma.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass deep golden, a bit oily, alcoholic and fruity aroma. Starts very strong, warming, quite alcoholic, fiery. Fruity notes in the background, but the alcoholic notes are much stronger and more present. Finish warming, malty, still fiery-alcoholic. Nice experience but not an every day beer.

From a 75 cl bottle vintage 2011. Pours a clear Amber with an ecru head. Aroma of raspberries. Flavors of berries and caramel. Sweet boozy finish.

2009 bottle. Want some raspberry liqueur? This has a decent aroma and isnít offensive on the tastebuds, but isnít worth more than a few ounces. Even after 5 years it was incredibly boozy. I poured a good deal of it out after sharing with some friends.

"as wonderful as world wide stout is at this same strength, this one comes off a touch boozy and sticky sweet. i still didnít dislike it, but for the price, it just wasnít worth it. the raspberry portion is well done. sweet, and slightly tart. the aroma was ok...it had a certain funkiness to it that iím still not sure what to think of. good full body, but too sticky. good aftertaste. 2012 batch a little herbal, which ended up going well with the sweet fruit."

750 ml bottle from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have big raspberry character, some caramel, lots of alcohol, I wasnít aware of the abv when I grabbed this, but was quickly made aware of this when I smelled and tasted this. In small doses this would be ok as an after dinner sipper.

2012 750ml bottle pours a hazy ruby red with an off white head. Slight raspberry juice but mostly alcohol taste.

750ml bottle - 7/9/2007 - pours a deep red . Huge raspberry syrup aroma . Body is viscous with lots of Laffy Taffy like flavors . Can't detect the alcohol at all . Nicely done . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Loved it. Wish they still made it. It taste just like they say it should. I would love to buy this again but looks like I will only find it on rare beer lists now ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
