4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared @ dangerous bottleshare #8 . 2012 vintage. Pours hazy ruby red or murky brown depending on which glass I looked upon. no head either way. Aroma of nice and sweet raspberries, a lot of chocolate, vanilla, gummy bears and liquor filled sweets. A lot of port wine notes as well. Smells like a dessert liquor in some form. The taste also has a lot of sweet raspberries, chocolate, port wine, wood, weak jam, caramel, vanilla and some delicate alcoholic notes. Nice flat and oily body which suits it well. This is seriously something else! A great sipper imo.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #8, thanks to Baron! Pours a dark, deep reddish, slightly murky brown with almost no head. Aroma has lots of raspberries, alcohol, cherry, sweet fruity notes, huge malty sweetness, chocolate, the liqour that you fill in chocolates, port wine. Taste is a nice, sweet mix of raspberries and chocolate, lots of booze in a nice way, again elegant port wine notes. Not overwhelming, but still very intense! This lived up to my expectations for sure! Low carb and full, oily body.

375 ml bottle. 2012 vintage. So big thank you to deyholla! Cheers Derek!
Clear dark red colour with no head.
Raspberries, dessert wine, dark chocolate, a hint if sweetness (yeast brings more sweet raspberries) and some fruit cake notes in the aroma.
The flavour is strong... with raspberry, dessert wine, chocolate, mild bitterness, sweetness and some dryness.
Wow! This is really enjoyable. A truly balanced beer. Rich and complex enough.

Pours into a deep dark red color with a foamy head. A creamy raspberry jam aroma with a chocolate back note. Big jammy flavors with the return of slight Chocolate layers. Slightly tart. The alcohol turns it into a sipper yet delicious and unique in its own.

Bottle from Sam! Thanks...brotha! The pour is deep red, almost deep purple. No real head or lace. The aroma is powerful dark raspberries and blackberries. A rather jam aroma but with a boozeness to it. SOme hints of chocolate. The taste is immediate strong raspberry, almost jam like. Some notes of dark chocolate and cordial. Strong booze, medium to thin body, low carb. The flavors are amazing.

2014 Batch. I was super excited to try this for years, but man did it disappoint. Smells like raspberry medicine, tastes about the same. It grows on you a bit as you drink but damn is this medicinal. 4 of us struggled to finish a bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split at the Cotteridge Convention, from an IP trade with Jredmond - cheers James, 24/01/15.
Murky redish amber with a crimson top.
Nose is sticky raspberries, berry fruit, sweet tunes, Neopolitan ice cream.
Taste comprises raspberry syrup, lightly spiced backnotes, sweet, berry jam redux.
Full bodied, viscous, warming alcohol in a sweet fruit finale.
Solid stuff for style and concept, easy sipper but a little too sweet, can’t say I’d have this anywhere near the top 50 beer list personally!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
2012 vintage picked out of the cellar by my wife for her 39th birthday. Pours an absolute deep ruby colour. No real head or lace. Nose is super sweet fruity, obviously raspberry, a bit of booziness. Tastes sweet, there is a touch of chocolate taste and smell, it’s boozy though, has some little bitterness, malt, and a firey finish. I like this but it gives me some heartburn too, and I can feel it rather quickly.

(Cuvée 2014): Ramassé à la brasserie au début de notre traversée. Un nez de fleurs trempées dans la confiture de framboises très sucrées. En bouche c’est ridiculement sirupeux et sucré. Avec le temps ça se complexifie superbement, des notes boisées sortent de la chaleur d’alcool et contribuent à la chaleur. Le côté sirop est trop important pour la mettre sur un piédestal, J’aurais été très curieux de goûter les précédentes cuvée.
