Fort

$15.99, Brawleys, Charlotte, NC, USA. 750 mL bottle, bought in Jan 2006, consumed September 2006.

Dark orange pour with an initial small head but obviously this fades really quickly. Aroma has the advertised raspberries which are certainly evident in the taste too, but even the strong fruit presence is overwhelmed by the alcohol. Not a lot else, just plenty of warming alcohol. Nice combination of sweet and tart.

Not much here other than the alcohol. It drinks below its 18%, but at the same time the booze is very prevalent.

At this price, forget it. I generally enjoy DFH and their philosophy and also many of their beers, but this is definitely poor value for money and a very ordinary beer to boot.
