This poured a ruby red color with a pinkish head. Aroma was of sweet raspberry candy. Flavor was much the same, very sweet, and hides the alcohol incredably well. Not an everyday beer, but something really good for the right occasion.

Draft at Capones. Pours amber red with a small white head. Aroma of raspberries and caramel. Flavor is rather simple, toffee malt with some raspberry flavor (powdery). Medium bodied with a slight bubbly texture. Average amount of sweetness with alcohol very well hidden. Not very complex, but simple- in a good way of course.
