COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We all know that drinking beer is a congenital pastime and brewing beer can be just as fraternal. This collaboration between Rob Lovatt of Thornbridge and Jessica Heidrich St. Eriks is testament to the friendship and inspiration that brewing can produce. This Imperial Raspberry Stout pours rich and dark with aromas and tastes of liquorice and chocolate, complimented by the generous infusion of prime Scottish raspberries. Hops: Bramling Cross. For best results serve at 10C.

Big raspberry nose with a full on raspberry mouthfeel with a roasty bitter finish. One for those who like fruity bitter beers. Rated by BrewTom

Moebbels (501) - FINLAND - JUL 31, 2015
A perfectly pitch black body with a minimal brown head. The nose has an extremely pronounced and alnost pungent aroma of raspberries that covers everything else. The taste has a rush of raspberry sourness that quickly gives way to a deep, rich and lingering liquorice aftertaste. This is extremely intense with the raspberry and liquorice fighting against each other in perfect balance, exciting!

Opaque dark colour with almost no head. Slow rising bubbles. Alcohol note in aroma is not noticable. Aroma of raspberry, notes of dark chocolate, cocoa are in second plan. Taste: hop bitterness is high with fruity notes and is well balanced with malts. We can detect notes of cocoa, liquoric, coffee, but they are in second plan, namely taste of raspberry is too dominant. Body is mout-coating, carbonation is medium, also finish lenght.

Intense aroma of raspberries, there’s not much more, some roasted flavours as well. Dry and tart, slightly bitter. Thin mouthfeel. Interesting beer.

Bottle, bb 31.01.16. Pours almost black, with beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is dominated by raspberry, notes of roasted malts and hints of sweetness. Something like dark chocolate pralines with raspberries. Taste is again full of berries, with nice roasted, medium bitter background. Raspberries added some sourness to the beer what made it relatively drinkable. Seems to be medium bodied. Worth trying.

Holmen1 (3653) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2015
Flaske delt med Rune på rbhd-treff etter bokpresentasjon på Cardinal juni-15: nesten helt svart med tett lysebrunt skum, så den intense bringebæraromaen kommer nesten som en overraskelse. Deilig og fyldig smak, og på ingen måte så søt som aromaen kunnne få en til forvente. Syrligfrisk, og med laang ettersmak.

Rune (9405) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2015
500ml bottle at Cardinal kindly shared by Holmen1. Nice crocheted lacing from a tan-coloured head. More or less jet black in body colour. Prominent smell of raspberry and black malts, semi-dry. Similar mixed taste of berry skins and earthy, dark malts with hints of coffee. Tart and sweet ending. Smooth on the swallow. Fine bodied. Good drinking (Stavanger 18.06.2015).

cervmagpt (437) - PORTUGAL - APR 24, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 (style 13F, adapted). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: initial predominant raspberry aroma with a background of sweet coffee, cocoa and a slight note of black liquorice. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: dark brown color and opaque. medium brown head with average retention. TASTE: mild sweet raspberry flavour dominates with a background of roasted notes (coffee and dark chocolate). medium-low bitterness with a roasty finish and aftertaste. PALATE: medium-full to full body with a velvety texture. slight and smooth alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a nice combination of an imperial stout and raspberries which dominate the aroma and taste giving the impression that its a bit unbalanced.
