UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 Deep dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is a big hit of raspberries, followed by a little grape, prunes, figs and brown sugar. Full bodied, slightly sticky mouthfeel, lightly tart on the palate with a lightly warming fruity finish. Taste is raspberries, berry pie, prunes, figs, caramel, red wine, white grapes. Delicious

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma raspberry, quite intense, fresh, at the same time some overripe fruits. Hazy brown colour with floaties. Taste is fruity, moderate sourness surprises you after a moment. Raspberries noticeable. Sweetness in the background, dark beer character hidden. Very good beer, although IMO most interesting for its uniqueness.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fľaša. Tmavšia hnedá farba, pena malá a hneď padla. Vôňa prezretých malín a sliviek, jemne alkohol. V chuti sladko-kyslá chuť malín a v pozadí opäť prezreté slivky. Pozadie veľmi dlhá kyslosť, s jemným alkoholovým nádychom. Krásne ovocné tóny. Telo stredne plné, stredná nasýtenosť. Na druhé napitie je to lepšie a lepšie.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a cloudy, dark brown color that showed maybe a touch of ruby highlighting at the base, with a frothy, tan layer of head foam that reduced down to a fairly persistent ring & film, and left some spots & strands of lacing. First impression was a noticeable hint of soy in the nose that disappeared as the beer breathed, then dark chocolate covered cherry, or in this case, raspberry, and some alcohol readiness. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was initially dry, and continued with red wine notes, and cask bitterness & tannic astringency, as the alcohol got my attention, but remained somewhat in the background. Dryness followed through for the finale. Maybe a little age on the bottle, but interesting, and quite tasty.

"Faaaaantastic aroma of raspberries and wine, with a little bit of sweet malt and yeast poking it’s head in there too. Slightly overcarbonated, but no hint of 10%. I think you are just so distracted by the awesome flavor, you don’t notice any alcohol. Fruit forward and sweet, but not overly so. Well done! 9/12 still really good the 2nd time around but well sweeter and boozier."
