Four City Brewing Company Amanda
What the brewers say
"Imperial stout fermented on cocoa nibs, raspberries, and maple syrup."
What our panel thought
“Aroma reminiscent of a raspberry-chocolate dessert (heavy on the raspberry). More balanced flavor profile, with dry, dark chocolate up front playing with bitter raspberry. The acid from the raspberries balances the sweeter malt flavors on the middle-back end. Drinks a little light.”
What our editors thought
“Big berry notes on the nose with a rounded sweetness more than berry tannin. In the sip, the dark chocolate comes forward, dusty and dry, pushing the berry notes to the retronasal. Pleasantly restrained.”
