Bottle, 2012 vintage. Shared at Dangerous Bottle Share 8.0. Pour is dirty reddish with some tiny lacings. Nose has raspberry!!! Sweet filled chocolates and some vanilla. Taste is very much like a fruity port wine, raspberries, slight alcohol burn, chocolate, sherry and a light tartness.

Klimaet (755) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - APR 12, 2015
Shared at Dangerous Bottleshare #8. Pours cloudy reddish brown with no haed. Aromas of sweet cherries, raspberries, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, liquor filled chocolate sweets, barley notes, light boozy heat. Taste is pretty jammy, sweet raspberries, chocolate, port wine, oaky dry, vanilla and some alcohol that does not do in any way harm this delicious brew! Very unique.

RasmusOtt (1599) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2015
Bottle shared @ dangerous bottleshare #8 . 2012 vintage. Pours hazy ruby red or murky brown depending on which glass I looked upon. no head either way. Aroma of nice and sweet raspberries, a lot of chocolate, vanilla, gummy bears and liquor filled sweets. A lot of port wine notes as well. Smells like a dessert liquor in some form. The taste also has a lot of sweet raspberries, chocolate, port wine, wood, weak jam, caramel, vanilla and some delicate alcoholic notes. Nice flat and oily body which suits it well. This is seriously something else! A great sipper imo.

Vestergaard (948) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #8, thanks to Baron! Pours a dark, deep reddish, slightly murky brown with almost no head. Aroma has lots of raspberries, alcohol, cherry, sweet fruity notes, huge malty sweetness, chocolate, the liqour that you fill in chocolates, port wine. Taste is a nice, sweet mix of raspberries and chocolate, lots of booze in a nice way, again elegant port wine notes. Not overwhelming, but still very intense! This lived up to my expectations for sure! Low carb and full, oily body.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 5, 2015
375 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. So big thank you to deyholla! Cheers Derek! Clear dark red colour with no head. Raspberries, dessert wine, dark chocolate, a hint if sweetness (yeast brings more sweet raspberries) and some fruit cake notes in the aroma. The flavour is strong... with raspberry, dessert wine, chocolate, mild bitterness, sweetness and some dryness. Wow! This is really enjoyable. A truly balanced beer. Rich and complex enough. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SpongeRuiner (945) - Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours into a deep dark red color with a foamy head. A creamy raspberry jam aroma with a chocolate back note. Big jammy flavors with the return of slight Chocolate layers. Slightly tart. The alcohol turns it into a sipper yet delicious and unique in its own.

Bottle from Sam! Thanks...brotha! The pour is deep red, almost deep purple. No real head or lace. The aroma is powerful dark raspberries and blackberries. A rather jam aroma but with a boozeness to it. SOme hints of chocolate. The taste is immediate strong raspberry, almost jam like. Some notes of dark chocolate and cordial. Strong booze, medium to thin body, low carb. The flavors are amazing.
