2007 bottle thanks to Daniel. Pours a cloudy brown ruby with no head. The aroma is strong raspberry candy, tomato, and oak. Thin mouthfeel with strong acidic raspberry, tart, and very sweet finish. Very good.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2014 A huge thanks to ygtbsm94 for providing both ’04 and ’07 vintages. Pours a nearly still translucent burgundy with no head or lacing. Aroma is chocolate liqueur and dark fruits (raspberries, cherries). Flavor is more chocolate than raspberries, with vanilla notes. Overall very drinkable - alcohol is well-masked. From notes 1/23/10 (Geist Dark Lord Tasting).

biggirlpanties (186) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAY 8, 2014
2004 Nip bottle shared with GT2 thanks to CaptainCougar- an old wedding present that we saved. Celebrating our first home! Bottle opens with no hiss, pour is murky deep brown and flat. Nose is oxidized, tawny port, black cherry, candied dark fruits, bourbon, simple syrup, sherry. Awesome- pretty much perfect. Taste is cranberry, milk chocolate, tootsie roll, diluted sherry. Finishes watery and papery. Over the hill.

hombrepalo (1831) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Won this in Fantasy Football. Shared during DLD 14. Pours a cloudy purplish-brown body with a small off-white head. Aroma of raspberries, overly ripen apples lying in an apple orchard, alcohol and earthiness. Flavor of sweet, semi-tart raspberry, apple, chocolate, and caramel with a dry oak finish. Bit hot!

Vignale (2105) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Drucken på fat på Mikkeller & Friends på Nörrebro. En glad överaskning att den var påkopplad. Söt alkholvarm hallondoft med vanilj, choklad och cognac. Stor kropp, rejäl sötma men inte sliskigt, snarare len och stor munkänsla, väldigt väl dold alkohol, inte alls spritigt men kraftig och värmande. En dessert i sig och riktigt gott. Fint att värma sig med en kylig vårdag.

Defreni (2618) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 17, 2014
Fad: Bordeaux farvet øl med et meget lille skumhoved. Duften er let bourbon, vanilie og masser af hindbær. Smagen er igen meget kompleks med masser af hindbær men dog også en ordentlig gang alkohol. Øllen er simpelthen for varm af alkohol. Dejlig ø ellers.
