Widmer's Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout
Widmer Brothers Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout, previewed for Seattle writers earlier this week at The Publican (formerly the Burgundian) in Tangletown. On sale April 9th, about $10 for a 22oz bottle. It's the second release in their "Alchemy Project" series of beers that can be cellared. (The first were a couple of bourbon-barrel brews, very smooth.) The raspberry component here isn't strong; this is no "fruit beer." Rather, the raspberry adds a dark, sweet note to the brew.
