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.

bmanLS (134) - Gibsonia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2004
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.

raymow (962) - 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.

jazz88 (2585) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 21, 2003
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.

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

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)

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 A sweet coffee cavalry rides proud over rolling vineyards...A dust cloud rises behind the galloping, chocolate-hoofed brigade...Alcohol calvary is not entirely abolished but a few forthcoming sips (or bottles) of sweet molasses should rescue the ailing tongue...

Great color and just as good coffee and chocolate tones. Very nice Imperial stout. (not too much to say)

jercraigs (8289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2011 2011-10-16. Black body, small tan head fades quickly. 3+ Flavour is fairly dry mild roast, over a sweeter dark malt core. Light bitterness, mild dry coffee like roast lingers into the finish. Roast and mild cocoa in the aftertaste grows as you go. Aroma is mild at first, mild roast, light metallic touch? 6+ Smooth medium body is lightly carbonated but feels light for the beer. Decent, but not really loving it. 7/3/7/3/14 Bottle aged about 9 months, from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo

2002-12-XX. Dark black colour, with deep chocolate coloured head. Powerful coffee aroma. Cofee or espresso bitterness with a tart/bitter finish and aftertaste that I did not appreciate. 5/4/6/3/12 - 3.0 Bottle, shared at Oakes’ Ratebeer Christmas Party
