COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Court Stout is a hand-crafted Russian Imperial Stout infused with a heavy dose of luscious raspberries. This rich, dark, malty beer has a fresh, fruity flavor that combines with and compliments the dark chocolate notes that carry through to the finish-like mixing raspberries and chocolate malt in a glass.

Big black pour with khaki head. Raspberries hit you in nose and taste. Pretty medicinal and artificial. Also lots of ash, cocoa, coffee. Appropriate heavy mouthfeel. okay stuff.

4/16/14. 22oz bottle (I think, possibly 750mL) thanks to Brent during a VORLAUF meeting. Black pour with a nice enough tan head. Big raspberry aroma, a touch artificial, like candy almost, hints of char, chocolate, and soy sauce. Plenty of raspberry in the flavor, sweet again, reminds of candy, with touches of dark chocolate, coffee, mild acidity, and lingering ashy soy sauce. Could be worse.

kathouse (997) - Nevada, USA - NOV 24, 2013
At GABF. Black with tan head. Fruity aroma of syrup and raspberries. Light chocolate flavor and more syrupy fruit. Sweet finish is off balance. Medium body. Needs some work.

22 ounce bottle. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and chocolate. Taste is raspberries, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and vanilla. Hides the alcohol very well. Enjoyed this.

Bomber. Pours black with little head. Nose is huge raspberries. Taste is really bitter, and tart. I don’t get the stout part of this. OK for a taster.

Deep black body with lasting tan head. Nice raspberry chocolate, vanilla, dark roast aromas. medium body, average carbonation. Nice lightly sweet raspberry chocolate flavors with medium roast maltage---simple but well executed fruit stout--very tasty

22oz bottle served in a snifter. A - Pitch black body, 2 fingers of frothy mocha head with nice retention and lots of lacing. S - Licorice, artificial cherry/raspberry syrup, roasted malts, cocoa powder, toasted bread crust, caramel, earthy grassy hops. T - Cherry and raspberry fruit bring a sweet but tart tangyness. A cherry cola like sweetness. The malt provides a mild earthy roast, caramel, toasted bread crust, with bakers chocolate growing heavier towards the finish. Some grassy hops are the mix as well. Finishes roasty and tart with a cocoa powder aftertaste. M - Medium chewy body with adequate carbonation. Not sure what to think about this one. I find myself liking the fruity tartness and then disliking it on the next sip as it somewhat reminds me of cherry cough syrup. I wish the base beer was a little bolder to support the raspberries better. Serving type: bottle 02-09-2013

Bottle thanks to soonerchamps. Raising a glass to the brewery as they were damaged in a tornado. Hopefully, everyone is okay. Pours very dark brown with brown head. Nose and taste of raspberry jam, sweet chocolate malt, lightly roasted chocolate, vanilla and raspberry filled dark chocolates. Body on the lighter side of medium. Really enjoyed this.

Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foiam. Aromas of raspberry, cocoa, roastiness and light earthiness. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of raspberry, cocoa, roastiness and light earthiness with a crisp lingering raspberry finish.
