This hearty, chocolaty, dark brew is made with an intriguing amount of Blackstrap molasses added to the kettle.

The maple undertone improved greatly as this beer warmed. Weyerbacher’s best by far.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2005
22 oz Bottle. Very dark brown, thick tan head. Very roasty aroma, unsweetened chocolate? Nice thick malty roasty palate, with some hops in there complimenting the roasty bitterness. On the thick side of the spectrum. Me likes!

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle - 12 oz] Dark black pour with a very tan and puffy head. Nice aroma of chocolate, malts, roasted notes and coffee. The taste is very well blended and smooth. It’s a mixture of chocolate and coffee with hints of roasted malts and a nice bitter coffee finish. One very fine porter.

I’m not sure why this is listed as an ale...it’s definitely more a porter beer. Sweet aroma of molasses, brown sugar, and coffee. Very roasty taste, with the molasses, chocolate, and a little faint coffee, with a moderately hoppy finish. An excellent Weyerbacher offering!!

22 oz This is like a super super porter. Some might say an IMPERIAL porter. But lets not overuse the term imperial. Still, this comes close to the idea. Its bigger and more of everything in a good porter, but still balanced. It looks amazing, smells great, and tastes delicious with no prescence of alcohol whatsoever.

Pours dark and robust-looking with copious head. Smell is somewhat caramelly/molassey. Flavor is strongly caramel with proper levels of hop bitter for a porter. Plenty of mouthfeel, a great beer overall, but could have more chocolatey or roasty maltiness especially for a beer of this gravity.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2011 Very dark in color. Flavor is strong on roastiness and chocolate with a hint of coffee. Smooth and drinkable given the medium level of alcohol.

omhper (19972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 10, 2004
Bottled. Dark black with rich creamy head. Fruity aroma of tobacco, plums and dark chocolate. Sweet with rich, soft maltiness. Pleasantly hoppy with salty, bitter finish.

A very pretty beer, deep ruby tinged black with a nice tan head that held up well. Aroma was clear espresso, good if not complex. Flavor matched, coffee and espresso, but there was also a chocolate liquor note to soften the finish and prevent astringency. The chocolate note also added an element of depth to the beer that was a pleasant surprise. Couldn’t pick out the molasses personally, but thoroughly enjoyed this fine porter, a style I had been becoming disillusioned with recently.
