Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2006
(Bottle 18,7 cl) Pours a clear, dark amber with a tiny, beige head. Fantastic and complex nose of chocolate, toffee and some sherry-like accents. Extremely full body with some distinct, warming alcohol. The raspberries add a pleasant - yet discreet - fruitiness throughout, but the chocolate clearly dominates. Somewhat sugary finish. Extremely complex and a very unique experience. Thanks to madsberg for sharing. 120206

Super raspberry fruity, vanilla-esque aroma. Orange chocolate, dark chocolate covered strawberry/raspberry flavor in the body. No lasting finish, but a wonderful flavor in the body. Really enjoyed this. Only got a few drops at the GTMW, so this was a real treat.

Brigadier (3175) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2006
Smells of raspberries, chocolate, cherries and a light airiness. Caramel brown in appearance with no head. Chewy, thick caramel impression. White chocolate, raspberries, chocolate dipped orange peel and more caramel. Excellent taste that lingers forever on the tongue, unfolding more delights every minute. Full bodied and complex - I wish there was more of this to try again.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 Bottled (Vintage 2004): Burgundy coloured. Small beige head. Sweet, fruity and full sherry notes in the aroma. Flavour of creamy raspberries. Marcipan notes. Ligth acidic. Alcohol is very well hidden. Is quite smooth. Ends on a alcohol note. Nice brew. Thanks to Suiiy for trading this.

Poured a ruby brown with some minor tan film for a head. Aroma was filled with rich chocolate and fresh raspberries. Warming alcohol flavor nice chocolate flavors followed by raspberries sweetness. Finish was warm with carmel malt and some chocolate bitterness. Very nice ..

Anticipated this one a lot....thanks to Gonzobeer for this. Strange how damn small this bottle is, I mean make a great beer and bottle it in a size that hardly fills a bathroom cup, thankfully after the anticipation that is the only complaint. Pours out a nice deep brown color that is clear. Slight lacing on the top, but hardly a head to speak of. Aroma is of brown sugar, caramel and some brandy. Taste is nice and complex with some notes of the raspberry, but not over powering. Caramel malts dominate the taste, but it has a nice finish and palate to it. A very good beer.

omhper (20571) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2006 Bottled (2004 vintage). Clear nut brown. Aroma of cocoa and raspberries. Sweet and liqueur-like with some pleasant acidity coming from the raspberries. Full malty body with some warming alcohol. Lingering bitter cocoa in the finish. Very special. I absolutely love the idea, but I get creepy annotations of Floris Chocolat when drinking it.

Nose is of heavy cramel malt, and the raspberry hits right as you prepare to sip. Looks thickand yeasty. Flavor does not disappoint with a wonderful balance of chocolate, toffee, brandy and raspberry. Finish is malty and full, with a smoothness that belies the weight of an eisbock.
