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.

The_Osprey (3868) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Big thanks to Colin. Dark red, hazy, no head at all. Aroma is light raspberry, red wine, molasses, oxidation. Body is medium, rich, no real carbonation. Taste is malty, pretty sweet, tart raspberry, background oxidation like an old barley wine. This is definitely a sharing beer - I couldnít drink half a bottle of this.

24th Jan 2015: Cotteridge Wine meeting. Cheers Colin for sharing this, the sweetest beer of the day by a country mile. If you like lashings of raspberry jam on your toast this is your beer heaven, however I found it just too syrupy for my delicate palate and my sample was enough for me.

Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Theydon_Bois for this one. Reddish brown with off white head. Really sweet and jammy raspberry beer, syrupy, quite smooth. It really is the drinkable version of Raspberry Jam. Itís fine but a little too much for me.

Garrold (2882) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Sweet. Smooth. Rich, and boozy. Raspberry jam. Some relief by way of some light tartness. Overall, too sweet for me.

Bottle at Cotteridge wine convention; hazy light red/copper pour with a thin bubbly white head, raspberry aroma, taste has ripe fruit, jammy, some cherries, very sweet and sticky but nice, great blended with Armand 4 Lente for some sweet and sour action.

Martinus (4074) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2015
Clear dark red colour, off-white head. Aroma of raspberry, cherry, red fruits, raspberry candy, malts, caramel, chocolate and raisins. Sweet flavour, caramel, raspberry candy, concentrated cherry, syrup and chocolate cake. Quite alcoholic, full body. Finish hot alcohol, fruity, sweet. Quite a beer for people with a sweet tooth. Well made and out of the ordinary, still, too sweet for me. Could see this work brilliantly with dessert though.
(from 37.5cL bottle during Oudjaarsticken 2014. vintage 2012. Thanks for bringing and sharing the bottle, JulienHuxley, itís much appreciated!)

MrHangover (3496) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle, 2012 vintage, thnx to lionsandbeer for sending me this! Pours clear pinkish beer without any head on top. Aroma is very fruity, loads of raspberry and booze. Not very complex, but very intense. Flavor has again loads of raspberry, booze but also some sugary notes and even some chocolate in there. Very syrupy and sticky. No carbonation going on here, but very full bodied and great flavors going on here. Aftertaste is very sweet and boozy. Very heavy stuff, but I love it.
