Year of New Beer: Imperial Frambozen, New Belgium Brewing (CO)

Written By: Dion on 02/10/2018

An abundance of raspberries greets the nose, backed by hints of cocoa powder and cola. With warmth, this develops an aroma that I can't quite put my finger on, but it does detract a little. On the tongue, this is like a chocolate dipped raspberry. A light, roasted malt provides a trace of bitterness, but the sweeter cola aspect wins out. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Flavor is much better than the aroma, but overall the body is lacking a bit.
