I wrote: "It definitely has the smell of a stout. There's also an alcoholic perfume. The date on the bottle is March 12 12 but on the label it reads 'Prost! To improving with age!' Tastes strong. I don't detect the raspberry flavor. Very dark color from the side."
I also wrote: "I'm starting to get some bitterness in the aftertaste. There's also some sweetness to it now. Accompanied by the bitterness. Ooo... I got some chocolate flavor kicking in. Nice."
