3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is chocolate, dark malt, soy, a hint of tart raspberry. Appearance is imperial stout with a two finger cocoa head. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Imperial stout flavors first, chocolate and roasted malt. The raspberry appears mid palate, briefly, mostly skin and seeds, and fades quickly. The raspberry flavor is very natural and subtle. There’s no artificial raspberry blast. It’s very different and enjoyable. The finish, however, is astringent and dry. The middle was good, the ending left a little to be desired.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark with a tan head. Slight raspberry aroma. Don’t taste the raspberry much, a slight sweetness into the mouth. Tart with. Fair amount of bitterness on the swallow. Expected a bit more sweetness. Just OK. Doesn’t stand out for me. Don’t think I’d go out of my way for another.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Ian and Colin over a game of Power Grid. Very dark brown with a dense tan head. Aroma is cocoa powder and miso, no raspberries for me, not even through to the end. Very odd. Flavours of black malts, bitter chocolate, light soy, and just a hint of fruity sweetness. Very dusty dry finish. In a blind tasting I would not pull any raspberry out of this. Mouthfeel is on the thin side for an impy, and Im not crazy about that dusty finish.
