Good beer, not even close to great for an imperial stout. For the abv it's not complex enough. Portland ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ritzn (2176) - GERMANY - AUG 31, 2017
Black with little brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, lacto, rasins, some flowery stuff. Taste is dry dark chocolate, with sweet and sour raspberries. Quite balanced. I love raspberries. Quite smooth. A bit too alcoholic for drinkability. Nice.

Bottle. Pours dark brown. Nose is very raspberries, chocolate, coffee. Palate is less exiting, raspberry is almost not there. Typical 08/15 imperial stout apart from the nose.
