daniellerose7 (119) - new york, New York, USA - MAY 21, 2008
WARNING: This is a serious beer, not for the faint of heart. Very sweet and fruity, but with a punch in the jaw of alcohol. It is almost like a flavored liquer or brandy. Very serious. Don’t plan on drinking this bottle by yourself. Or with less than three very willing people in the room.

(bottle) clear, bright reddish orange colour with a medium tall white head; aroma of raspberry juice, candy; balanced, muted flavour, well hidden alcohol considering the ABV

wlajwl (5506) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 13, 2016
Aroma is raspberries and a really strong alcohol/whatnot. The flavor is raspberries, mild sweetness, malts and a slightly sour/increasingly alcoholic finish.

jsporrer (526) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2016
On tap @ HO1K beers. Pours a dark amber with a white head of foam. Aroma of tart cherry and other fruits. Taste is semi-sweet and tart fruity flavors with a warm alcohol finish. Somewhat medicinal and the alcohol overpowers the fruit flavors. Not as good as I had hoped for.

Draft at HOTB. Raspberries and malt backbone with a strong warming alcohol sensation. Smooth for such a strong beer. Pretty. Good. Will knock u on your arse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

wxman (1713) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Pours a ruby/brown with a fair off white head. Fruity aroma, berries mostly. Sweet, tongue coating roasted malt, berries, slight tartness, smokey and boozy, yet smooth and well balanced. A very good sipper.

rougeau13 (2493) - Richmond, Texas, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Clear pinkish Amber with an off-white head. Aroma of raspberries, vanilla, and grain. Taste is sweet, boozy, and full of raspberry. Medium-full bodied, boozy.

stevoj (3717) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 29, 2016
On tap at brewery. Usually I expect this kind of wallop from an Imperial Stout or a barleywine. This one come from a jar of jelly, at least that’s what it smells like. Silky pour, aroma of berries, taste comes on full fruit with associated alcohol burn. Really strong, but tasty. It will just take a while to get through....

BiiruBierBeer (929) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Smell is super nice raspberry. Taste is like an amber with sweet raspberry syrup. Hides the ABV incredibly well. Medium to full body, low carbonation, and no foam.
