Enjoyed alone as a winter-warmer or as the perfect finish to any fine meal, our Raspberry Imperial Stout is a wonderfully full-flavored beer with just a “kiss” of raspberry flavor. When we brew this beer we add just a touch of real raspberries during the fermentation process. The result is a modest fruit flavor which enhances— without dominating the rich, malty, stout taste.
We’re proud to say that Weyerbacher Raspberry Imperial Stout won a Silver Medal at the 1997 World Beer Championships. In 2003 and 2004 this beer was chosen National Grand Champion in its category at the U.S. Beer Tasting Championships.

“Opaque expresso appearance. Moderately full-bodied. Mild bitterness. Subtly hopped. Rich malt. Pours with a creamy white head. Raspberry-coffee aromas. Rich malty roasted flavors with a sweet center and a clean mildly roasted finish. The fruit flavor works surprisingly well here.”

Our Raspberry Imperial Stout (8.0% ABV) is great alone or as an after-dinner accompaniment. It’s especially good with chocolate desserts.
