Widmer Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout ’12

CIMG5925

Well this is new, a raspberry RIS. This beer features Pale, Caramel 60, Midnight Wheat, Chocolate, and roast barley with Alchemy, Willamette, and Cascade hops. Then they add raspberries during the fermentation.

Stats:
Russian Imperial Stout. 9.3% ABV. 70 IBUs. Oregon. Spring Seasonal.

Dark brown color with a lovely tan head.

This smells like chocolate raspberries. Seriously, it’s like a cake or something. It smells a bit sweet, but not overwhelming.

Mouthfeel is huge. It’s very thick with a nice level of carbonation.

Chocolate, raspberries, caramel. There’s a little bit of roast. I love how the raspberries play with the chocolate of the malt. There’s flavor everywhere on the palate, but it has a really beautiful balance.

Well, I think this is an exceptional beer. It’s got some amazing flavor with a nice balance. It’s bit too rich for me. This is the definition of a dessert beer and will go amazing with chocolate or maybe even a cheesecake. 90 points.
