Sunday was quite a busy day. It started with a half marathon, in which I ran okay. I didn’t PR and my knee is roached, but I finished without walking and felt great afterwards. In addition, it was the Opening Day for much of the NFL. We rented out the upstairs room at our favorite bar and invited around 20 friends to hang out, watch the game, eat great food, and drink amazing beer. Overall, it was a fun day with friends. Beer brings friends together!
Widmer Brothers Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout
After drinking a few IPAs and a Pumpkin Ale, I chose to try this RIS. I wasn’t necessarily in the mood for a stout, but it was a new beer on the menu and I thought I’d give it a shot. The flavor was chocolatey at first and then had a raspberry finish. However, it wasn’t overly raspberry or chocolatey. It was a decent stout, but nothing spectacular. Widmer Brothers needs to kick up the malts and the raspberries to make this a truly exceptional beer. If you like chocolate and raspberries, you should try this one. I would really just like there to be more of all of the flavors.
