2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served in a snifter. Hazy amber with a reddish overtone, very small head forms and is gone in an instant. The nose is tart raspberries, a touch of cherry cough medicine, a whole lot of booze. The booziness is also prevelant in the flavor along with some sweet, syrupy raspberry flavor. Simple and very harsh. Canít say I am a fan.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
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."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 750 mL bottle from Wine Warehouse. 2008 vintage, aged intentionally to allow it to mellow out. Pours a hazy red color with no head. Aroma of tart berries, earth, booze. The taste is berries, citrus, earth, honey, prickly booze. Medium-full bodied, fairly hot still, low carbonation, almost mead-like. Pretty solid and it seems like itís held up well. 100th Delaware rating!

Pours a lovely hazy amber with small white head. Has a very sweet aroma of raspberries and malt. Definitely taste the raspberries up front followed by a very sweet malt taste and alcohol. Leaves a lingering sweet taste at the end.
