2007 Bottling 6.7oz sampled12/15/2008
Pours a slightly cloudy dark purple with a minimal head that disappears almost instantly. The nose is very fruity as would be expected, lots of raspberry’s, dark caramelized malts, alcohol. Smell is very sweet almost like raspberry liqueur. Taste is fruity, malty with an alcohol bit that lingers on in the finish. Very tasty, like a port but sweeter. This one is definitely a sipper. The body is thick, the mouthfeel is sticky, carbonation is low. Great sipping beer or nightcap. I need to try more from this brewery!

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.

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!)

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

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Shared bottle with Timfoolery and others. Very strong aroma of raspberry. Tastes of raspberry with hints of chocolate. We paired it with chocolate birthday cake. It cake takes away the medicinal characteristics from the beer.
