Mistletoe pours a very dark brown black with a nice head of small firm mocha bubbles. Nose is dark chocolate and candied raspberries. Taste is a medium malt roasted goodness with some red fruit. Slight bitters. Nice silky body with very minor carbonation. Finish is a minor amount of rich earthy bitters.

Bottle. Brown pour, light tan head. Quite a lot of raspberries in this, chocolate, wood, light brandy, and sweet raspberry flavored candy. Too much sweet raspberry stuff for my liking.

Bottle shared @ Oakquinox. Black pour with a tan head. Nose of raspberry, brandy, and roasted malt. Some cocoa, very earthy, and quite watery. Some wood, a bit of chalk, and a bit of acidity. The flavor has some decent raspberry and brandy notes. Earth, light vanilla, wood, and quite a bit of cocoa. Roasted malt, some chalk, and a light bitterness.
