Real raspberries abound in this chocolate caramel after dinner treat. Aged for a smooth texture and drinkability. This lager beer will handle additional age very well.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Thanks, Tim, for this one! Maroon colour, very little head. Fabulous aroma of milk chocolate, raspberries, malt, vanilla, hard sweet candies. Taste is sweet raspberries but has a dark chocolate roast backbone to it. Considering this is 15.5 percent there’s very little alcohol present. A lovely dessert beer.

Bottle in Vail. Thanks to adnielsen for sharing. Pours a dark red color with white head. Raspberry jam, slight alcohol aromas. Raspberry jam, pretty strong flavor. Definitely a sipper.

2012 bottle. Thanks Ryan! Pours a dark clear red with a small pink head. Aroma of fruit, malt, chocolate, and alcohol. Taste is raspberries, malt, chocolate, vanilla, and alcohol. Finish is dry, tart, and warming. Very nice to sip on.

blomster (255) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2013
2012 bottle at home. Clear, reddish brown. Awesome boozy raspberry aroma. Same raspberry taste. Sweet. Kind of feels like a boozed up New Glarus fruit beer. Great!

rxeight (1232) - Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle from blacknyellow (BA), thanks man. Dark ruby red semi transparent. Completly flat no carbonation. Aroma is raspberry puree and tootsie roll chocolate. Taste is chocolate raspberry and quite a bit of booze, although doesnt taste anywhere near as strong as 15.5%. More like 10%. Good stuff for sure but not for the price.

pentaz (1223) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2013
Draught @ Mikkeller & Friends. Pours unclear red with a minimal off-white head. Aroma is raspberries, booze, toasted malt, chocolate notes and toffee. Taste is intense, cloyingly sweet, near moderate bitter and light tart. Body is full, texture is thick and sticky, carbonation is soft. Finishes very sweet, boozy and burning with lingering raspberries and malt.

Hallontårta, choklad och maltig. Mäktig kropp tydliga hallon. Spritig mot slutet men inte så det stör Varm, tung och riktigt fin. Söt. Hemma hos Micke som hjälpte till att fixa denna trade. (Thanks biggsbowler!)

Jow (2016) - New York, USA - NOV 21, 2013
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

Poured from bottle. Pours deep red in color with no head. Aroma is a raspberry tootsie roll pop. Taste is the same. Sweet as heck with lots of great raspberry and chocolate notes.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2013
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.
