COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with heaps of chocolate malt, cacao nibs, and local, late season red raspberries from Agriberry Farm, Hardywood Raspberry Stout captures the essence of a decadent raspberry truffle in liquid form. A beguiling ale, this stout’s enticing cocoa aromatics build to a flavorful crescendo of full bodied dark chocolate, subsiding with a pleasantly sweet, tart raspberry jam laced finish. Pilot batch at 9.3% and 55 IBU.

Keg at Craft Beer Rising 2018, Brick Lane. The raspberry adds a very sour note, and it really balances the gingerbread.

Tap at brewery. Pours deep, dark brown. Aroma and flavor are chocolate, coffee, roasty/earthy notes, raspberries, and very faint caramel. Full body.

bjorn77 (919) - Kraków, POLAND - FEB 10, 2018
Aromat: świeże maliny, bez odczucia sztuczności czy syropowości, do tego czekolada. Zapach dosyć intensywny, bardzo przyjemny. Wygląd: czarne, dosyć wysoka, jasnobrunatna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, utrzymująca się chwilę. Smak: gorzka czekolada i cała masa świeżych malin, maliny bardzo naturalne zero sztuczności czy syropu. Do tego sporo nut palonych, kakao, kawa. Bardzo dobry balans i kompozycja, wszystkie smaki tu się bardzo dobrze przeplatają, słodycz i gorycz gorzkiej czekolady, słodycz i i cierpkość malin, gorycz kakao i słodów palonych. Dosyć wytrawne, nie muli, ale słodyczy jednocześnie jest na tyle ze wytrawność nie męczy. Odczucie: ciało i wysycenie średnie, alkohol ukryty, dobrze ułożone, finisz gorzkawy, Całość: świetne piwo z malinami, nie wiem czy nie najlepsze jakie piłem z dodatkiem tego owocu. Maliny są tu dopełnieniem rasowego, wytrawnego imperialnego stoutu, na uwagę zasługuje lekkość i naturalność malin i ogólnie, dobre ułożenie, balans i kompozycja piwa. Bardzo smaczne. 7/4/8/4/16

Massive raspberries, soft roast and cocoa, earthy, light red currants, dark chocolate, light roast. Medium sweet, bitter and sour. Medium bodied. Quite nice, at least when it’s not all over my legs and shoes.
