COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly Weyerbacher Imperial Stout.
Rich, velvety and deliciously complex, Weyerbacher Imperial Stout is a truly distinctive winter warmer. We use seven types of malt and two varieties of hops to bring forth this big brew. Quite robust and roasty on the palate, Weyerbacher Imperial Stout has a wonderfully fruity nose and a moderately dry finish. The taste is highly complex- perhaps youíll even discern notes of expresso or chocolate.

Pours pretty flat with a small tan head. The brightest light can not penatrate this stout. Chocolate, coffee mix with alcohol being completely hidden. Medium body which is not too thick but just right, nice stout.

CapFlu (4733) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 (Bottle) Deep brown with a beige head. Plum, rubbing alcohol nose. Cocoa and coffee flavours with a slight gritty finish. Lovely!(4.1/5). UPDATE: Pours a brown head with an opaque body. Nose of coffee, sweet with bourbon and marshmellow tones. Very chocolaty, malty, milky smooth with red wine. Complex yet thin. (3.7/5)

Bottle. Solid black color with a rich dark brown head. Intense chocolate aroma that grows more complex as the beer warms. The roasted malts, toffee, and coffee soon came alive in the nose. A full rich body that coates the mouth with roasted malts and coffee. Thanks to hopscotch for the trade.

raymow (985) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Pours like thick syrup and looks like tar (one of the darkest beers I've witnessed yet - you won't be seeing anything through this one). Taste is superb, kind of a sweet stout with hints of chocolate and coffee in the finish. A very good brew.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2004
Extreme Beer Fest Boston 2004: Has a very dark brown color and a roasted malt smell. Taste was kind of smooth malts and finished a bit sour. Overall not one of the better stouts, but pretty good.

ukoolaid (576) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2004 Extreme Beer Fest '04: Very dark black with small tan head. Aroma is fruity and pleasant. The taste is complex. Nicely hopped and malty. It is a great beer, but has too much roast flavor for my liking. I'm not into heavily smokey beer. Rerated (2/19/04): Bottle. Wow my opinion has changed. I barley taste any of the smoke flavor I saw before in this beer. It's chocolatey and malty and delicious. I still think it has a great balance and very complex. I also taste coffee now. Much better than I first rated it (4.0)

ClarkVV (4086) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 21, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2004 2003 bottle. Dark blackish-grey pour with small amount of thin mahogany-tan head. Smells of coffee, smooth but slightly acidic, with some extremely dark fruits in the background. Not my bag of fun, way too much dry coffee with a flavor that tastes stale, one-sided and slightly astringent. Mouthfeel is greasy, with a high bitter/acidity like itís got bitter cocoa in it. Like a coffee stout gone bad. Didnt even finish, though I didnt have the heart to pour it out (so someone else did). Iíll rerate at some point.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 Iíve been hearing about this beer for a while from a friend. Donít understand why it took me so long to snag one. Uopn my first sip, my taste-buds were dancing amiss a euphoric chocolate maltiness rounded off with a sweet roasted expesso bean aftertaste.

Huge head of dark caramel. Totally black. Strong sweet chocolate aroma. Chocolate and a lot of fruit (prunes?)in the flavour.
