This Imperial Raspberry Stout pours rich and dark with aromas and tastes of liquorice and chocolate, complimented by the generous infusion of prime Scottish raspberries. Hops: Bramling Cross. For best results serve at 10C.

Infiniteipa (30) - - JAN 25, 2014
An absolute beast of a beer! Perfect imperial stout thickness, with dark chocolate heavy on the palate initially, and the raspberry kicking in quickly, dominating the taste with deep and dark sourness. If youre after a challenging strong beer, this is the beer for you. It may not be the smoothest beer at 10%, but this is part of its charm. The use of fruit with Imperial Stout here is a match made in beer Heaven, the only question is when can I get hold of another bottle of this?
