Thank you (?)! 650 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG VI (2017). Black, creamy tanned head. Nose is bit thin, herbal, grain, mocha, ice cream, boozy,.... Taste is finer, herbal licorice bourbon sugar syrup, boozy, mocha, chocolate, touch licorice, unlike others I didnt get the raspberries, boozy & sugary finish. Body is basic boozy, malty, licorice. Pretty decent, nice.

2014. Saving some money. Drinking the random shit in my cellar. Raspberry actually still there. Beer has soy sauced out a little but thats ok. Still a creamy mouthfeel. Nice drink a little sweet.

I hate to use a word like "lush" in a beer review, but "lush" is exactly the right word for this damn thing. It pours dark brown without much foam, and the aroma is chocolate and vanilla from the barrel aging, plus a hint of the raspberries. The flavor adds coffee to that mix. The raspberries come through on the finish and dont dominate the flavor, they just add an indulgent quality after all of the character from the malt and the barrel. This is the kind of beer that closes a meal in style, but it was also fine by itself.

Bottle shared. Pours a deep brown with a small beige head that dissipates quickly. Low carbonation and visually looks like molasses. Roasted cacao aged honey and floral and vinous notes. Tart berry and honey on the palate. Smooth with lots of raspberry character and roasted coffee on the finish.

Beer is black and oily with a lingering tan foam. Raspberries pop, but are muted by the roasted coffee finish.

Bottle at dirty Matts, courtesy of the dirtiest of Matts. Opaque black with a forthy cola head. Raspberries are present but not overwhelming, complement the bittersweet baking chocolate and bourbon, espresso, almost burnt malts, vanilla bean and oak. Full body and mild carbonation, smooth and easy to drink with a nice complex and long finish.

markextrae (4191) - Alingss, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 17, 2016
Bottle shared by a friend. Poured a deep dark black colour with a dark tanned head. Still a huge amount of fresh sweet raspberries in the nose, still after that age for a 13 vintage! Deep sweet bakers chocolate, oak, sweet bourbon, marshmallow, espresso beans, sweet vanilla, big fresh raspberry jam. Lovely aftertaste. Full bodied, with a big bourbon covered raspberry finish. Loved it
