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.

Vestergaard (1693) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to LukasMH. Pours almost pitch black with a small, off white head. Aroma has lots of dark, rich chocolate, some licorice, slight, "freeze dried" raspberry, dark roast. Taste has a very smooth body, but lots of bitter, fruity raspberry notes. roasty bitterness, chocolate is both dry and slightly sweet. Not a whole lot of raspberry, but a nice balance. Again smooth body and medium low carbonation.

Bomber, 2012 vintage, shared by ctomson. Thanks buddy! Roasted malt aroma with chocolate notes and a bit of raspberry sweetness. Pours black with a thin light brown head and no lacing. Starts with a rich roasted malt flavor. Finishes smooth with chocolatey flavors and raspberry notes coming through at the very end. Good, flavorful stout.

A nice stout with a smooth pour. Decent barrel stout. A mild sweetness from the raspberries but no raspberry flavor. A light foamy head with a small coffee flavor to it.

Bottle @ home, thanks to the rotbox for saving this one for 2+ years. Pours a black appearance with a thin brown head. Some oxidation, lots of dark chocolate, roasted malts, light smoke, and some fruits/berries in the nose. Kind of thin body. Lightly sweet. Weird berry flavor. Chocolate, coffee, and oak in the mouth. Ehhh.

"Not really a surprise, but as good as I was hoping it was. One of my favorite brews from Widmer. Kinda steep on the price, but worth it once or twice. This is what Lost Coast Raspberry Brown (a gateway beer) would taste like if you replace "brown" with "imperial stout". The raspberry aroma and flavor are at the same level, pleasantly obvious, but more on the back end and not taking away from the beer at all. Adding to it if anything. Nice bitter chocolate and slightly hoppy stout. Very flavorful and aromatic. "
