3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11th January 2010
Cloudy brown beer. No head at all. Fruity raisin and dark fruits nose. Fairly neutral palate but very loe carbonation. Unsweet and rich raspberry. The malt base has a marmite streak. A strong Raspberry Barleywine! Like Dogfish Head Fort’s younger brother! No idea this was 13.0% so the alcohol is well hidden.

Vielen Danke an den Doppelbock!
Starker Himbeergeruch mit alkoholischer Note, nur leicht süß. Etwas fruchtiger Antrunk, der trotz dem Alkohol ausgeglichen wirkt. Das Bier wird malziger, die herben und würzigen Töne scheinen nur Ergänzungen zu dem vorherrschenden Himbeeraroma mit nachziehendem Alkoholton, der nur wenig stört. Mittellanger Nachgeschmack, fruchtig.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (batch #148, brewed 29.6.2006)
Dark ruby color, small off-white head. Aroma is a bit oxidized with some madeira and rasberries. Flavor is also oxidized but has strong rasberry presence. Full-bodied and sweetish. Nice balanced dessert beer, which has been at its best few years ago.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by WeeHeavySD at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours a transparent mahogany with a small ring of off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel toffee with some light fruity complexity and oxidation. Starts semi-sweet with some fruity raspberry flavor and complex black cherry notes very reminiscent of Kuhnhenn’s Raspberry Eisbock. Well-balanced and delicious.

Tried at Woodshop 5.0. Light cherries. Light sweetness illusion, but taste is dry. Big foamy head. Very good.

Flip top Bottle I believe I got via trade with Kim Johansen. I shared this at Woodshop 5.0. 5 years has served this beer quite well. Pours brownish with a tan ring. Nose is big and razzy. Taste is sweet with raspberries and it has mellowed to a level that I’d barely think was 8%. Shared this beer around and gotten mentioned in this LA Times article: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/02/rare

Got to rate this since it was served from the very last keg af CSAs tasting. Not much to look at being unclear and brown with no head. But the berry flavour and the sweet and lightly sour taste combined with a smoothness the totally disguised al booze was heavenly!
