750 ml bottle. Raspberry, chocolate, and vanilla. Lots of sweet malts. A bit of roast. Very smooth, soft carbonation. Doesn’t get cloying at all. Works rather well. Drake (13949) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2016

750ml bottle. Black pour huge raspberry jam aroma. Taste is a ton of raspberry, with some bourbon and chocolate. Slight oak and vanilla. The touch of vanilla seems to be more from the oak than added. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 14, 2016

Rating #2000. $14.99 bomber from Wine Warehouse. Picked this one up specifically for #2000. Pours black with a large brown head, frothy and soft. Holy aroma of sweet raspberry jam, chocolates, vanilla. Honestly, if you love raspberries the aroma is absolutely perfect. Flavor is heavy sweet raspberry on top of dark chocolates and vanilla. Booze is in there as well, and where it’s definitely not hidden, it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. Well worth picking this beast up for #2000. jtclockwork (16690) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2016
