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. Can’t say I am a fan.

2006 bottle thanks to Gibson. Pours a cloudy orange with no head. The aroma is raspberry seed and booze. Medium mouth with very sweet raspberry syrup, booze is very strong with this one with the sweetness a little overbearing.

(bottle - 750 ml - 2005 vintage) Been holding onto this one for a while so I wasn’t sure how it would’ve 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.

2009 bottle. Want some raspberry liqueur? This has a decent aroma and isn’t offensive on the tastebuds, but isn’t 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 didn’t dislike it, but for the price, it just wasn’t worth it. the raspberry portion is well done. sweet, and slightly tart. the aroma was ok...it had a certain funkiness to it that i’m 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 wasn’t 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.
