Tap at Blind Tiger’s VSK night although been popping up all over city as of late. Pours bloody chocolate color. Nose is thick raspberry syrup and dark chocolate. If you have ever had a Godiva raspberry chocolate bar this tastes exactly like this blended up and mixed with cherry cough syrup and grain alcohol but all in a nice way. Its a bit too sweet and thick on palate for me but overall very tasty

Bottle from T25 trade. Aroma and flavor is medicinal raspberry with limited sweetness and a caramel/cocoa aspect. Drink this with a big chocolate cake, and imagine you've mixed it with Purple Drank. It's great.

Shared bottle with Timfoolery and others. Very strong aroma of raspberry. Tastes of raspberry with hints of chocolate. We paired it with chocolate birthday cake. It cake takes away the medicinal characteristics from the beer.

05-NOV-2013, draft @Mikkeller & Friends.
Dark, dark amber with low tan head at the rim but that also dies and even a vigorous swirl can not bring forward a head.
Aroma is deep chocolate dipped raspberry. Taste is loads of raspberries and alcohol all wrapped in chocolate.
Very full body, soft carbonation, long fruity tart and sweet finish. Very sweet. Like a good banyul. Fantastic drink.

On tap, probably newest vintage. Pours beautiful tawny red with a dissipating head. Aroma is heavy on raspberries at first glance, mingling with warming alcohol and pie crust-like sweet malt notes, shadowed by an amazing chocolate note. The pronounced alcohol and strong raspberry makes it more similar to a liquor or cocktail than a beer. Very nice aroma! The taste is also more similar to a liquor than a beer, cause it does not really have any bitterness, it has a huge sweetness, loads and loads of raspberries, and a strong warming alcohol, which are the two main dominant aspects. Some maltiness is tracable, towards a hint of caramel and maybe even chocolate. A real sipper. Drink this in stead of a desert wine or a port, cause it falla more along those lines than your typical sipper beer.
