The raspberry ruined the brew. It was bitter and sweet...usually not a bad thing but this is a beer I couldn't finish

Surprisingly found this in Amsterdam. Phenomenal chocolate and coffee smell - taste is almost as good - it would be near-perfect imperial stout if not for the slightly excessive sweetness.
