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 you’ll even discern notes of expresso or chocolate.

Wonderful aroma - I think of cherry-flavored pipe tobacco. Also a dark-chocolate/fruity aroma. Appearance is good - very very dark with brown head. Flavor is light fruity up front with a dark chocolatey finish. Palate leaves a bit to be desired...too carbonated on first taste.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Poured from the bottle it has a medium dark brown head sitting atop a solid black body. Quite nice chocolate covered cherries in the aroma, along with the obligatory smoked malts and chocolate. Still has that Weyerbacher yeast funk in there that I really don’t like. Big carbonation, very jumpy on the tongue, then mellowing with a milky-chocolate finish.

Nuffield (3666) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Pitch black body with a dark, regular head that builds well on re-pour and swirl. Very fine aroma--smooth, chocolatey, coffee, and fruity (raspberry and grape)...like a Courage Russian Imperial Stout only less intense. Smooth palate but the carbonation detracts from this a bit, in my opinion, and it steals the depth of flavor, which otherwise carries the tune of coffee and chocolate with a bit of bitterness.

Pitch black, small dark brown head. Coffee, anise nose with hints of espresso in the taste. Has a nice somewhat bitter finish. Smooth stuff.

A great example of the Imperial Stout. A close rendition of the Sam Smith's version but with some more hops. A full complex beer with multiple flavors from the roasted malt flavor with some licorice, slight sweet flavor, some chocolate and slight coffee flavor. Finishes with some hop bitterness that I don't like as much as the Sam Smith's but stil a very good version of the classic and much cheaper than the Sam Smith's

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Dark black color small dark brown head that faded slowly and left a slight amount of lace.Nicely roasty malty aroma with a slight hint of fruit,very slight and a nice chocolate and possible toffee as well,and fairly sweet smelling,with maybe just a hint of alcohol.Nice roasty flavor and a big alcohol bite upfront but it fades quicklyleaving a nice chocolate and semi sweet taste,mild hops and a slight coffee taste comes through as well.The after taste is roasty and coffeeish with a slight chocolate and mild alchol bite going down.The body seems a bit thin at first but seems to get a little creamier as it warms.This is a fairly decent brew and very well done well worth having a few more around just for the high drinkability of this brew.Thanks to Raindog for this brew.

Now THIS is a great stout! Forget the overrated drag that is Guinness. Weyerbacher has made an excellent stout that doesn't have the makeup of mud yet still retains that favorite used motor oil color. Oh yeah, it tastes great, too. For those of ye who are not big stout fans (such as myself), do give Old Heathen a try.

Pours an opaque black witha gorgeous tannish/brownish head that is moderate. Aroma is of the classic chocolate, but there may also be a little fruit going on there as well. Start is a sour hoppiness, which is then followed by the proverbial coholate and coffee flavors. The ending is good, but the start kinda pisses me off.

Small light brown head, deep dark black colored.Sweet malty/roasted malt aromas. Alcohol and burnt paper aromas are also noticable. Big roasted malt/coffee flavors. Light alcoholic finish, very drinkable doesn't wallop you like some of the other Imperial Stouts. Maybe a tad thin bodied but otherwise very enjoyable.

nice quality these Weyerbacher guys know what they are doing; it has a toasy warmth with coffee/chocolates that gets better with warming; the longer you drink it the more you'll like it and then you wonder if the drink after your last would have been the best.
