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.

Finally the hunt is over! Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Sticky creamy beige head. Dark brown black ish beer. Aroma has tons of raspberries. Besides the many raspberries there’s some roast, chalk, some sprinkles of malts and oat. Flavour has enough raspberries, which pushes the stout tones to the back. There’s hints of roast, bitters, malts, light bay leaf, light light liquorice... But mostly raspberries and some blackberries with a tart tone. Aftertaste has again enough berries with little bitterness and roast and more tart tone. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, more than medium bodied. Good but too much raspberries for this stout

pivnizub (9734) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 25, 2015
Bottle:As black as ink, stable tanned foamy layer;solid aroma of (almost fresh) raspberries, in the second row distinctive aromas of toasted malt plus a slight acidity, moderate sourish-bitter flavour, medium bodied; lingering - again very fruity (raspberries, unexpectedly…) and sour roasty finish, alcohol is very well hidden. Yeah! A very complex, extremely well crafted brew…

MoritzF (9045) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2015
(bottle, vintage 2013) Dark brown, almost black coloured hue with a beige and firm medium-sized foamy head. Elegant raspberry-fruity aroma with mildly dark and roasty malty notes, balanced by a whiff of liquorice and chocolate. Mildly sour-fruity and slightly bitter flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth and well-carbonated mouthfeel. Raspberry-laden fruit character with rounded Stout flavours like dark chocolate, liquorice and faint traces of vanilla; long lasting fruity and balanced malty finish with sour and moderately roasty bitter accents, the alcohol is barely detectable. Superb. 19.VIII.15

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
