Pipeworks Brewing “Raspberry Truffle Abduction”
2013 Imperial Stout with Raspberries and Cocao
Nice, small, creamy and burnt tan head lingers ambiguously on the glass. Very black in color with a touch of dark brown.
Smells of fresh raspberries right away, perhaps a bit unripe. This is soon followed by sweet, malty goodness. The sharp raspberry nose, although not overwhelming, does not let much else through in terms of smell.
The taste is slightly sour, vegetal raspberries, bitter bakers chocolate, and raspberry purée.
Medium body, slightly under carbonated, with a nice dry aftertaste. Needs more stout and less of this sourness. Not too complex of a beer sour chocolate covered raspberries.
