This rating is for a bottle from the 2007 bottling. Nice little bottle, it opens up with a little "pschitt". Pours clear red with no head to speak of. Aroma is full of chocolate and raspberries. The beer itself has little to no carbonation but that doesnt get in the way of our tasting. A little sour, it tastes like a nice chocolate/raspberry cake. It goes down really smooth and begs for another sip. I deeply believe that I could have drunk multiple bottles of this (one sip at a time of course), good thing it is packaged in such a small bottle. Lovely!

Vintage 12. Thanks to Matt for this awesome brew! Partage en compagnie de Marc-Andr. Robe pourpre tel un vin que le temps a oubli au fond dune cave. Une mousse la framboise sur laquelle on a vers un coulis au chocolat. Du ppin de framboises presque acidul et suret accompagn dun corps riche et trapu. Beaucoup dalcool en sentend malgr laquelle le tout se boit dangereusement bien, tant quon ne cherche pas le boire comme une bire. Il faut apprhender le verre la manire dun digestif. On ne boit que trs rarement des breuvages qui se rapprochent de ceci.

ciocanelu (2226) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 10, 2017
Murky dark amber color with a bit of tan foam. Aroma has raspberries with brown sugar, caramel malt and toasted notes. Taste starts sweet and fruity with raspberry jam, sticky malt and sugar, slightly tart fruity finish. Medium, syrupy sticky body with low carbonation. The raspberry notes go very well with the sweet, malty flavors.

Bottle from Clint (starcross) -- thanks a ton, buddy! This is substantially harsher than I was expecting. The raspberry flavor and aroma is readily apparent, but its surprisingly medicinal, to the point of smelling and tasting artificial. The malt base is hot, giving off booze and intense caramel sweetness. I shared this with about 6 employees of a local brewery, and it was a struggle to finish it.

As one person in the group put it, "this tastes like a discontinued Yankee Candle that was NyQuil flavored."

Bardzo syropowe, trochę jak mid pitny/nalewka z malinami. Słodkie, kwaskowate, cudnie owocowe.

TimE (5712) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2017
The foam just goes around the rim. Medium brown amber color. Very big sweet malty nose with burnt raisins, raspberries, brown sugar, brandy, Christmas cake. Very full body, tons of raspberries, chocolate, Christmas cake, very sticky malty mouth. Super low carbonation. Boozy but so delectable and rich. Lingering I had this last time in 2008 and it is just as good.

jinroh (1505) - ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2017
Pours mahogany, not much foam but well, thats not what you look for in this beer. Aroma is full of raspberry jam, pure, fresh raspberry jam that I would like to take and just speed on a freshly baked and still warm bread and drink some cold milk next to it. Sweet and sticky, dense and warming. Taste is also full on raspberry, sweet, jammy, body is still somewhat dry. Alcohol comes out in the finish, some alcohol bitterness there. More raspberries in the finish. Game on, RBs best Fruit Beer, I dig you!
