DiarmaidBHK (3861) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle from Brusin’ Ales. Pours brown with a thin brown head. Big booze notes on the nose with some tartness as well as some raspberry as well. A touch tart on the tongue which is nice with a touch of wordiness. Not bad.

Aarond (150) - Wilmington, North Carolina, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is raspberries, caramel, and chocolate. Appearance is murky brown with a thin tan head. Taste follows aroma but is a bit sour on the end. Medium body with low carbonation. Overall very good but a little heavy on the fruit.

Lonick (1049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Pours dark brown with an off white (cream) head. Smells like a million raspberry’s crushed up and reduced to the size of a glass. Its just so intense. Taste is all raspberry as well but is much more sour than i would have expected from the smell. Its nice but its almost off putting just how sour it is.

allmyvinyl (7166) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours murky brown, no head. Massive raspberry aromas, chocolate and dark sugars. Taste brings a woody note, alongside lots more fruit and a finishing sourness. Very nice.

OldMrCrow (2215) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle from Portland. Pours a dark brown with red highlights. Modest and short-lived head the color of bruised peaches.

The aroma is really out there, strong and inviting, offering raspberry chocolate truffle that recalls Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock, along with a pure raspberry intensity like raspberry sorbet. Brown sugar. Aged barleywine. Oak. Red wine cork.

Unfortunately what is tantalizing and curiosity-inviting in the aroma comes of as a muddle in the flavor. It is as if this one cannot decide what it wants to be. Somewhat more sour than expected from the aroma. Tannic dry red wine leads the raspberries, vanilla oak, chocolate showing up late to the party, not as much brown sugar character as expected. For once, a raspberry beer that I think would work better if somewhat more sweet than it is. Obviously an interested beer but no alchemy here; it’s a $15 experiment that didn’t really work out.

antonstoop (266) - - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle. A brown beer with a average white head. Nose is like raspberry cocoa ice cream smothered in red wine. It is a medium bodied beer, with a string carbonation. Flavors are vinous, semi-wooded, with berries, dark chocolate and hints of dark fruits. Aftertaste is dark chocolate, light bitter and light sour from the berries. Overall a nice twist on the monk, but no wonderfull combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shrubber85 (9468) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle. Red wine, raspberry, and chocolate malt aroma. Dark brown with moderate head. Sweet-tart raspberry, light dry red wine and dark chocolate malt flavor. Body on the light side. Unique - quite tasty.

sir__v (1293) - Lille, FRANCE - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle shared with SuBarbare - Color: deep brown beer with purple reflexion, small carbonation and small white foam. Smell: raspberries, malt, some sour notes. Taste: nice sweet and sour balance, with good malt equilibrium and raspberry, strawberry and red fruits notes. Aftertaste: cherry and raspberry, really drinkable. As a barrel beer is not so strong!
