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.

Opaque black with thin brown head that recedes to a film and sticks to the sides of the glass. Coffee initial aroma with underlying chocolatey sweetness and a touch of smoke. Flavour is not at all what I was expecting. Sourness nips at the sides of the tongue with a bit of saltiness. Creamy mouthfeel with medium body. Slight astringency. Dry finish. Kept thinking of seafood while drinking this one. Would have preferred heavier body. I wanted this to fall down my throat with a clunk, but it just sort of floated in my mouth. Bottle. Blind tasting #2.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Poured a thick dark brown that was almost black. Huge creamy tan head. Aroma was slightly sweet and very roasty. Freshly ground coffee, dark chocolate, and fruit on the tongue. Dry finish. Rather thin and easy drinking Imperial Stout. It goes down like water.

Jeremy threatened my life if I didn't sample this beer. Bought this 12 oz bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY. Deep black pour with an inch and a half tan creamy head. Sweet aroma. Roasted coffee, chocolate, and malt. Sweet, sweet chocolate taste. Some coffee flavors, and somewhat bitter. Overall a really decent Imperial Stout.

Crockett (1076) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2004
Dark reddy/brown. Head thinned out very quickly. Sweet with fruit. Chocolate is a stand out. Moderate coffee flavours are fresh and light. Finish is soft and mildly bitter. Lots of carb, lots of fruit. Not as good as the raspberry.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
Rich and chocolatey with some espresso to make you take notice. Pretty much solid black with a frothy tan head that diminished to essentially nothing. Very smooth with a dry, finish. At last tilt of the glass some port-like aromas hit me too. A little thin for an Imperial Stout but a decent example of the style.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a deep, dark black with a thick and lasting tan head that leaves good lacing. Faint roasted coffee aroma with a touch of sweet. Initial malt and sweet taste with an undertone of coffee and a roasty followup. Slightly bitter finish.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2004
Dark black in colour. Aroma of chocolate, cherries and with mild coffee roastiness. Flavour was malty, mild coffee, chocolate but light bodied. Finished light with a medium bitterness.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Poured with a thick head which lasted quite awhile. Aroma of cocoa and dark roasted coffee with subtle fruit notes. Body is thin for the style yet smooth. Flavors are good, roasty malt, chocolate but finishing a bit too dry in my opinion. I found the thinner body, drier finish and lack of sweetness uncharacteristic for the style. Not an exceptional Stout but a decent one.

FridgRaider (108) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2004
This beer looks so good pouring in a glass, with its jet black color and small brownish head. The taste is just as pleasing, with chocolate and coffee in a thick texture only an Imp. Stout can deliver.

djrevnoir (26) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Malty, sweet aroma, strong sense of caramel. Very dark colour. Flavour matches aroma, but no other elements are added to the flavour. Slightly bitter finish. Overall, very pleasant, but just not complex enough.
