4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
My two favorite flavors in beer: Imperial Stout and Raspberries. Now to see if it lives up to such a promise.
Strong, smoky aroma has a decided overtone of raspberries. ME LUVZ RAZBURYS! :D It pours an opaque, scrumptious sable with a thick and rather persistent light tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Flavor is - uh, let me savor this for a while, oh, it is just so dee-lish! A sweet but not cloying raspberry core with smoky, malty, coffee, semi-sweet chocolate and licorice notes. I get a touch of cherry as well. So lip-smackingly delicious, itís to die for! Smooth, full-bodied texture has a good amount of fizz. Widmer, yíall kicked a-- once again! That does it - Iím moving to Portland. :D

Pours a luscious clear dark amber with a thick, fine-bubbled, light golden-tan head that sticks around for a while. Rich aroma is malty and rather hoppy with an evergreen note. Strongly hoppy flavor has a decided bitter evergreen undertone and hints of malt and honey. Smooth texture has above-average body and quite a strong tingle, leaving behind a nice hoppy and fizzy finish.

Bottle. Pours an extremely dark and very thick brown color with a fairly small head. Roasting and raspberry flavors are present throughout the nose. Nice and flavorful, with the roasting and fruit flavors in there. Great beer.

Smokey, coffee-like, subtle raspberry, very filling and delicious. Dark and deep. Not bad, bro.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 One of the better Imperial Stouts I have had in many years honestly. A nice contender for the throne, but I donít think it can top Old Rasputin.

The Raspberry aroma is immediate, smooth, pleasant, and the taste doesn't disappoint. Chocolate, roasty warmth, balanced nicely with cool raspberry and just the right amount of hoppy bitterness.

So this is very good. Nice dark pour. Thick brown frothy head. Great balance of rasberry and roasted malts and cocoa. Excellent

On tap at the Knick. Chocolate covered raspberry truffles with light carbonic tang, light melon, coffee, and toffee. Dark black opaque with creamy light tan lacing head. Medium chewy body with medium carbonation and light alcohol warming. Starts sweet with tons of roasted malt, light coffee, a hint of smoke, some raspberries, and a nice finish of nutty bitterness at the end.

Bomber from Sun Devil. Very Black. Mild nose, mainly berry like aromas. Very good mouthfeel. The flavors are where this really comes to life. Raspberry presents itself right away, followed by bitter chocolates, then the hops take over. The finish is very dry. I really like this. Buy more!
