Pours mahogany into a tulip. Tan head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Caramel, raspberry and oak aromas. Dark pit fruit and chocolate upfront turning to oak before the lasting tart chocolate-covered raspberry finish.

Bottle. Pours opaque brown with a large tan head that has long staying power and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is obvious raspberry with some woody and vinaceous notes as well. Flavor is medium sweet, raspberry, wood, wine all play a role. There is some lactic tartness present as well, which becomes more prominent toward the finish as the sweetness drys out. The raspberries dominate the rest of the quad notes one would expect, but if you ignore the style it is actually a pretty tasty beer.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 Bottle from Cornelius. Thick pulpy looking deep red. Lovely subtle fine bubbled lacing with a good zing to it. Big bruised boozy red fruit aroma, lots of raspberry. Supremely satisfying taste. Fruity, sweet, tart, zingy, snd utterly without being over boozy for the abv. Raspberry, complex vinous aftertaste. Pretty much does what it says on the tin. One of the best beers I’ve had easily.

"Dark prune colour and brown head. Strong malty, dried fruit, yeast, banana, milk chocolate and cherry aroma. Taste is a nice dried fruit and yeast with a touch of sour tartness. Overall quite nice and rather unique." That’s what I wrote before I realized this was the wine and raspberry aged version, which makes complete sense now as it had an unusual flavour for a quad - the tartness I noted comes from the raspberries and wine.

mikedR (1552) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 13, 2013
This straddles the existential line of what a beer "is," in a DFH manner, but really doesn't succeed. Dark ruby color, fairly carbonated. Taste is strong raspberry tartness and sweetness on a thin wine base. No complexity here; it reminds me of a wine cooler. Mikkeller swings for the fences with each beer they brew; here they hit a foul ball. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beergeek23322 (2601) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of fortified wine and sweet rasberries. Pours cloudy dark brown with a short tan head. Yeast sediment flating around eventually settling at the bottom of the glass. The flavors have dark fruit and woody notes with a tart and little sour finish.

JohnnyJ (4870) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle at oakquinox 2013. Pretty strong raspberry flavor, sweet malt, raisin, some oak barrel, notes of red grape, berry, and yeast. Decent.

lusikka (7038) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
375 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a dark brown colour with a white head. Aroma of raspberries, caramel and grass. Flavour of caramel malts, tart raspberries, white wine, grassy hops, wood and some floral notes. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a tart, roasty, floral finish. Enjoyable.
