COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich dark brew will go down smoothly on cool spring evenings. The addition of raspberry puree near the end of fermentation presents a raspberry sourness to compliment the roasted malts. Brewed with ample amounts of roast and crystal malt, this Imperial Ale is fit for kings. O.G.: 22.5 F.G.: 3.2 IBU: 63 ABV: 10%

Served on-tap at the Original Cameron Street location into a goblet.

A - Pours pitch black with a bubbly one finger tall tan head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving light lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of dark roasted malt, sweet chocolate, dulled coffee, and plenty of tart raspberries. The flavors are nice but they never really molded together to form a cohesive nose.

T - Plenty of tart raspberries up front slowly giving way to a rich mix of dark roast and light chocolate sweetness. Finish is mostly dark roast with some lingering tartness from the raspberries. This one was not too bad but it wore me down quickly and it was quite hard to finish the entire glass.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. This one has a heavy / funky feel with plenty of sweet roast in the finish.

O - Considering that most of the beers I have had from ABC are terrible, this one wasn’t too bad. The raspberry matches well with the stout but they never really came together. Good but far from great.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 6/20
PapaSkeetSkeet (809) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2011
Dark brown/black with light brown film on top. Served cold for the style. Aroma is of strong raspberry and some roasty note. Flavor is a fusion of significant raspberry flavor and tartness with a restrained roasty stout. It doesn’t go well. Unlike their cherry-chocolate stout that they brew every year where a subtle tartness compliments the toasted malts, this is way too much fruit with strong tart and also other clear-as-day raspberry flavors. The hops would be on the balanced side if no fruit were present, mainly bittering additions.
