pictoman (3747) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2022
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2022 Poured from 12.7 fl oz bottle (2017 vintage; thanks beerplace). Murky dark brownish red with very minimal white head. Lots of jammy raspberry, dark chocolate, alcohol hidden. Tastes like chocolate covered raspberry candies. Long sipper due to the sweetness. Good, but I think it may be a couple years past peak aging.

thegreenrooster (6292) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 14, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2021 Pour is a murky brown red with no head at all. Aroma is raspberry puree with some chocolate. Flavor is again a heavy raspberry with some chocolate and dark fruit. This is a thick as black strap molasses but there was no alcohol. Probably took at least 15 minutes to drink the 2 oz sample but this is well worth seeking out. So much raspberry but the chocolate underneath it was stellar as well. GTMW 2021.

solidfunk (16831) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2021
UPDATED: APR 10, 2021 A long time in coming waiting for this beer. Raspberry, chocolate. 14 years old this one. Some fig, some booze. A little rust. Boozy sweet finish. 6oz bottle came from a funeral apparently.

Iphonephan (10571) - JACKSON HOLE, Wyoming, USA - APR 10, 2021
UPDATED: APR 10, 2021 From a 6 oz bottle at a bottle share. Aromas of raspberries. Flavors are raspberries and some card board. Vintage 2007 probably past its prime but nice.

kevinsenn (3174) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2019 Bottle from Kuhnhenn. Been looking for this one for years. Chocolate raspberry aroma. Raspberry taste, 'lagery' and chocolate notes. Boozy and sweet.

4.4
Samuel214 (4314) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2019 Flaska från trade. Vintage 2012. Mörk rödlila, något murken och knappt någon krona. Doftar och smakar av nykokt hallonsylt, hallonkompott, mörka inlagda bär och sån där riktigt sliskig hallonlikör i choklad. Stor kropp och smakar nästan fatlagrat. Drar åt likörhållet men blir samtidigt inte för mycket. Spexigt helt klart, men också väldigt gott. Detta hade jag gärna druckit mer av. Mycket gott!

Patrickctenchi (7260) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 6, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2019 Bottle: (2017) Deep brown/red, clear with no head. Raspberry, chocolate aroma. Sweet, rich raspberry, dark chocolate malt....caramel. Boozy warmth, but really well-mannered. Amazing....it just OOZES raspberry. Decadent....wonderful

AirForceHops (12760) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 12, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2019 Bottle from a trade. 2014 vintage. The smell has a huge raspberry component, thick and jam like. Flavor is quite amazing; raspberry jam without a ton of sweetness. At this age it has really no alcohol showing. No cough syrup showing at all. Really awesome!

fiulijn (27434) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2018
Bottle at Black Christmas 2018
Intense flavour of caramelized fruit, raspberries; expectedly sweet; overall it's almost a candy.
Excellent.
