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.

Thick and jet black without a head. Huge coffee aroma. Flavour is complex, initially coffee, then chocolate. Heavily roasted bitterness but a bit of a burnt aftertaste. Thanks Ciderguy

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2004 Deep black color with dark chocolate and rasberry taste and aroma. Lightly carbonated and warm mouthfeel. 8.2% masked very nicely. I could really get used to this stuff. Big espresso finish.

12 oz bottle. Thick and opaque, very little head. Impressive figgy/coffee/chocolate/sour cherry aromas -- reminds me of a bittersweet chocolate candybar with bits of cherry. Very very smooth on the tongue, low hop presence throughout, again fairly bittersweet, just a bit low on the distinctiveness quotient that would make it a "great", but an attractive, very drinkable Imperial nonetheless.

Pours a really dark brown with a lasting dark tan head. Roasty chocolaty aroma, and if you really snort it, a touch of alcohol. Smooth full body and flavor fills the mouth. There are definitely no sharp edges here. Notes of chocolate and coffee blend nicely with perfect carbonation levels. Malt just coats the whole mouth and back of the throat. Bitterness seems mainly to come from roasted barley, which lingers a bit in the aftertaste. This is one damn well made brew. I might add that this is not a hop-heads RIS, but a malt heads RIS. And there are no defects that I can detect.

Black, thick dark brown head. Has a chocolate strawberry aroma, kinda like when i get cold stone ice cream and they mix chocolate ice cream with strawberrys and chocolate syrup. Light body, bitter chocolates then to coffee. Nice and light with some solid power.

black and totally opaque. chocolatey brown head, foamy soft and rolling. Musty, roastey and rich nose, with licorice and oak notes shining through. a bit vinuous with ripe berries. a bit sour and tart, dry chocolatey, dark and bitter finish. Raisins and currants emerge among the espresso.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 I’ve been hearing about this beer for a while from a friend. Don’t 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.
