maekchu (2059) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. 2012 vintage. Massive jammy berries and light chocolate nose. Dark tea color with ruby highlights. Big range of explosive berry flavors right off / mid palate mellow into smooth sweet fruitiness / very lightly bitter in finish. Medium body with just a touch of astringency. Wonderful stuff. Such a collection of subtle fruit flavors. Doesn’t overwhelm or bomb the tongue. Hides the alcohol very well. Great!

KyotoLefty (6299) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 3, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2014 2012 Bottle. Huge raspberry nose, chocolate, pop tarts. Very impressive. Deep crimson, head immediately goes to lace. Big, sweet, raspberry, smooth and lovely. No alcohol presence, really. A bit tingly. Bitter finish. Very smooth and silky body with tight, prickly carbonation. Lovely. Delicious stuff. Lovely flavors last forever. Wonderful.

dreamflower (572) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. This is the beer of my dreams! Enticing chocolate raspberry aroma and a taste to match. A bit booze, but very agreeable. Sweet and tart and rich. Yum!

northropfrye (2196) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
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.

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 (1281) - 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 (1236) - 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.
