COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An extremely rich and complex beer. The addition of raspberries during the fermentation process results in an almost purplish opaque color with a beautiful brown head. Warm chocolate and roasty notes compliment the hop bitterness.

ryecatcher (1030) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2013
Bomber (2013 bottling). Pours an opaque ’stouty’ brown-black with a nice, mocha colored head, decent retention and mad lacing. Nose is roast and heavy on the berries. Mouth is medium bodied, rapsberries prominent up front, then some lightly smoky roasted notes, and a medium bitter finish with soem ABV warmth and then a slight sootiness (that part I didn’t like). Overall, a nice stout (minus the sooty notes) and the raspberries made it resemble a truffle... so a good Valentine’s Day beer in case you are the romantic sort ;-)

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks eyes_wide_shut and YK23. Dark brown to black with a beige to light brown head. Roasty aroma with some coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of raspberry notes and alcohol notes. Bittersweet roasty flavor with chocolate and some raspberry juice. Medium to full-bodied. Quite pleasant.

Very smooth for an Imperial Stout. Balanced hops and the raspberry flavor is very nice. It is subtle an balanced with the malt and hops. Even better than expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thirdeye11 (5817) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2013
(22oz bomber thanks to blutt59) espresso-ruby clear brown, creamy dark tan head. Nose of raspberry, chocolate, cream, light graham cracker. Taste of rich milk chocolate, really no raspberry in the taste, rye/bitter citrus, creamy body and a nice rich milk chocolate linger. Medium to thick body, I actually think it’s pretty nice for Widmer. Raspberry finally starts to come out in the finish.

Aroma and appearance beautiful. Taste good but forgettable. Raspberry subtle. Purchased at Brewforia, WAY overpriced.

drowland (7059) - Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2013
1/19/13. 22oz bottle from Grassroots Natural Market. Black pour with a nice tan head that fades to a ring and barely laces. Fruity aroma with a good dose of alcohol, roasted malts, and a touch of dark chocolate. Rich, sweet flavor, again with a dose of alcohol. The raspberry is there, but not prevalent, and masked by the overdose of roasted malts, acidity, etc. Eh. I was going to post ratings of my "blend" mixing the chocolate and the raspberry, but after tasting them both, I see no point.

n00bface (137) - Minneapolis, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle from South Lyndale Liquors (Minneapolis, Minnesota, 23/11/12)
Nose is chocolate, sweet fruit, roasted malt, and some vanilla. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium tan head. Taste is moderately sweet and slightly tart. Full bodied, thick texture, and an average carbonation. Really good. Raspberries and stouts make for a good pairing.
