2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served in a snifter. Hazy amber with a reddish overtone, very small head forms and is gone in an instant. The nose is tart raspberries, a touch of cherry cough medicine, a whole lot of booze. The booziness is also prevelant in the flavor along with some sweet, syrupy raspberry flavor. Simple and very harsh. Can’t say I am a fan.
Pours a dark amber with dark red hues with sediments and a thin head. Aromas of alcohol, caramel and raspberries. Flavors of alcohol, caramel, raspberries. Has a nice creaminess behind the alcohol. You really have to tune out the alcohol to enjoy the fresh raspberries which are a nicely present. Medium sweet. Medium to high bodied do to the high abv. Its not very complex but if it is, the high abv masks the possibility of noticing it. I got this one to celebrate my promotion in indianapolis in. Should have looked up its rating before buying, but still a pleasant experience. By sipping strongly and incorporating oxygen you really get the raspberries well. The whiskey/caramel doesn't mix that well with the fruit tones. cobaink2 (813) - seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2017
This is a boozy mash up. Starwberrries, mango with quite a sweeetness. It’s also a bit of a merky mess. Sort of similar it taste to a fruity 120. onceblind (10697) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2017
Hazy deep pinkish copper with no head. Rich boozy fruity aroma with lots of raspberry and peach and hot spirit tones. Full deep fruity body with raspberry purée with strawberry whiskey and a warming boozy finish. Pretty warm and full, lots of red fruit purée and a bit of whiskey. crispaire (247) - - JUN 7, 2017
the color of the brew might be its most appealing aspect. sickly sweet. raspberries evident. big boozy lingering warm finish. if you want an instant buzz, this concoction’s for you, but definitely not a great representation of a fruit beer. fidelis83 (2523) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 27, 2017
Cloudy amber pour, thin off white head, and a high effervescence, though with lots and lots of really tiny bubbles. The head, although small has great retention and the beer coats the glass a bit. Aroma is raspberries, lots of toffee, doughy yeast, caramel, alcohol, raw nuts and toast, smells like it’s really sweet. Flavor is raspberries, caramel, lots of toffee, alcohol, dark fruit, a hint of licorice, red bell pepper, freeze dried berries and odd perfumey note. Pretty heavy body, creamy, chewy entry, light, but quite sharp carbonation, fairly dry (though still pretty chewy) finish, moderate alcohol burn. Pretty tasty, surprisingly clean, very much a Barleywine with berries, but pretty light on character for the big abv%

Chugged this in under 7 seconds. Drank pretty good. Some fruit, lots of sugar. Nice little buzz. A little pricey. RichTV is on welfare. 🤑 Chalumeaux (1758) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 14, 2017
Poured from bottle date looks like 2009 ruby red with a nice tan head and good legs. Strong aroma of raspberry dark fruit and caramel. Taste is dark fruit berry jam lingering alcohol finish. Wow. kevinator (2791) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Wooh! Quite nice and unexpected.Puts most fruit beers to shame. Not overly sweet as there seemed to be an nice hop balance. Raspberries through the aroma and flavor. Some spice. Pretty color and great palate. Weighty and smooth with a slightly dry finish. Msdrbeat (785) - East Lansing, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Bottled. Really strong raspberry aroma. Color is a reddish amber. A lot of booziness in the taste. ljthiessen (1448) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 15, 2016
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a white head. Aroma is candied cherry, some caramel and dark fruit, really nice. Taste is cherry and dark fruit.
