Nip bottle, 2007 vintage. Shared by Mathieuc, huge thanks! Brown with reddish reflects, no head, no lacing. Aroma is of intense chocolate and raspberries. Taste is sweet, intensely chocolate and strong raspberries notes. Slight acidic presence from the raspberries that help to balance the beer. Sirupy. Warming alcohol. I was surprised by the strong chocolate presence. The bottom of the bottle was tasting raspberries jam. Nice sipper!

One of the Holy Grail (!) from a trade with umich03jm. Pours a sort of deep copper maroon color. Very low head, and carbonation is mild. Aroma is a balance of sweet raspberry and chocolate; wishing for more aroma. Flavor is fairly sweet and intense raspberry, chocolate, and some alcohol, but it’s well hidden considering the ABV. This reminds me of eating a raspberry truffle. Love how this lingers on the palate with these really nice flavors and a little tartness. Great sipping beer. Unique, and impressive that the brewer could pull this off without the beer tasting artificial or weird. Awesome to have been able to try this. Thanks, Jason!

Chipalsa (1311) - Florida, USA - APR 21, 2013
2012 batch - thanks OmegaX. This batch was a tad stronger... like 15.5% stronger. The body poured a tad oily, showing little signs of carbonation in the deep red hue it had. This brew had an intense marriage of chocolate and raspberries in the aroma, it was almost thick as well. The taste was fantastic; bittersweet raspberries, soft carbonation, smooth texture, and a kiss of chocolate in the finish. What a unique experience this was!

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2013
From tap, at CBC 2012. Hazy orange red with a frothy tan head. Intriguing nutty aromas of toffee and peanutbutter mixed with raspberry accents. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, leathery, fruity, with a creamy chocolatey texture and very soft carbonation. Medium bitter finish. One of a kind, and without a doubt the most interesting fruit beer I’ve had.

Atom (1628) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle 2012 pours a clear ruby with a thin khaki head. Aroma of raspberry juice and tootsie rolls. Taste similar to aroma a raspberry tootsie roll with a punch of alcohol on the finish. This is delicious!

Svesse (6735) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2013
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 26 July 2013) Dark red colour with brief head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of raspberries, vanilla and treacle. Fruity, malty taste with raspberries, caramel, vanilla, candy sugar and a sweet finish with a slight raspberry tartness. Full body, quite thick and oily. Very sweet and slightly sticky. It’s thick, sweet and dominated by raspberries. So it’s not the most complex or subtly balanced. But it’s still quite lovely.

Tap. Unclear red with a small off white head. Lots of raspberry, raspberry syrup, caramel malt, warming alcohol, chocolate. Heavy sticky sweet, full body, soft carbonation. Big and sweet with lots of raspberries.
