kevinsenn (2770) - Waterloo, Ontario, 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.

Samuel214 (3338) - 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!

AirForceHops (10449) - 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!

MrSquash (156) - Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2018
2012 edition. Very boozy initially but quickly fades to a delicious raspberry jam aroma. Tart and sweet taste followed up by a moderately sweet malt backbone. Finishes tart and robust. Alcohol very nicely hidden. Just delicious.

juiceisloose (2562) - Windermere, Florida, USA - SEP 22, 2018
2017 375ml bottle. Pours a dark brown white th a reddish hue and topped by a thin beige colored head of foam that settles quickly to a thin film and leaves some thin lines of lace around the glass. The aroma is really nice showing notes of dark chocolate, fresh raspberries, jam, toasted caramel, lager yeast, some burnt sugars, greasy malts, and just a hint of boozy warmth. The flavor follows suit with the dark chocolate and fresh jammy raspberry right up front to go with the toasted caramel and bread malts, and fruit sweetness without getting overly cloying and a nice dryness from the lager yeast. The alcohol adds some nice boozy warmth without detracting from the rich, jammy raspberry and caramel notes. Medium bodied and slightly sticky with soft carbonation that leads to a chocolate covered raspberry and caramel finish. Really awesome stuff and really glad I finally got to try this after all these years.

shrubber85 (12811) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2018
Bottle 2017 (thanks to Weihenweizen for a beer that's been on my want list for well over a decade). Raspberry, chocolate caramel malt, alcohol, and hay aroma. Dark brown with minimal head. Moderately sweet raspberry, chocolate malt, and moderately bitter herbal hay and alcohol flavor. Great body - nicely smooth. A work of art.
