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.

Very dark beer out of the bottle with only deep garnet colors noticable when held up to the light. Oil slick of a head with a brown ring of foam. Dusty bitter chocolate and roast coffee nose. Lots of bitter chocolate in the taste and a bitter that reminds me of chewing roasted coffee beans. I get a hint of orange liquer and balloon rubber, but mostly chocolate. Bitter, dry finish.

Bottle. Poured as black as coal with a large tan head, which dissipated quickly and left no lacing at all. A little chocolate came through in the nose. The taste was of a watery chocolate with a taste of alcohol. Less flavor and more wateriness then I was expecting. It was good, but I've had better.

Black beauty with a tall tan head that goes away too quickly. Nose is faint, chocolate roastiness. Damn, mouthfeel leaves me wanting more. It's a bit thin (I just drank an Expedition, prior), vinous and slightly tart. Thin watery chocolate and a bit of hops at the back of the tongue. Major disappointment, as I thought this was going to be a mammoth beer. Roastiness and bitterness in the aftertaste, alcohol is well hidden.

I was dissapointed in the appearance of this brew. It poured a beautiful color, nice pitch black. The bad thing was there was almost no head. It was there and gone. The bubles sounded like soda pop. There was also very little lace. The smell was very sweet, a little spice was in there also a little molasses. Taste was good. A little less robust than I am used to in Imperial Stouts. Lots of burnt goodness. This leaves your mouth fairly dry which isn't desireable to me. Mouthfeel is a little thin in this beer. A little watery characteristic to it. Also the carbonation is a little to harsh for an Imperial Stout. Overall this beer is fairly good. I could have this as a session beer however there are more beers I would rather have. Alcohol doesn't show itself much either.

Pitch black, a bit oily, decent tan head. Nose of chocolate liquor. Surprisingly light palate considering the aroma and appearance. Flavors of Peachtree Schnapps filled chocolate candies, followed by a chaser of Ethiopian coffee. Lighter than expected, not as complex as I had hoped for, but very tasty.

Solid oily black, thin tan head about a finger high, very fluffy and thick, fades slowly to a fluffy ring around the edge, lace in minimal super drippy spots. Aroma is quite nice with chocolate and sweet chocolate chip cookie dough, vanilla, slight molasses; a refreshing bakers chocolate nose with just a hint of spice upon bigger wiffs.Taste is mild chocolate, malty darkened and sweet, not chewy, smoothly rendered, slight vanilla and molasses, roasty and semi deep toned. Pretty bold and nearly full feel, lightly creamy, with a light but favorable drying that has chocolate/cocoa and extremely light coffee notes in the finish coming in late. A nice Imperial Stout. Not as hefty or complex as some but a damn nice easy drinker.

12 oz. brown bottle. No freshness date seen. Poured out a deep, dark brown, with a dark tan head. It was huge at first, billowing out of the stout glass I poured it in. But, it faded to a generous lacing on top of the beer. Aromas of burnt malts, alcohol, and dark roast expresso coffee. Alcohol becomes more prevalent as it warms up. No hops aromas at all here, gang. Burnt sugar taste in the middle of it. Pretty potent stuff. Also pretty tasty.

To date, this is my favorite stout. Pours near black with a beautiful dark tan head. Toasted mocha with a slight alcohol note, what a great aroma! Flavor is rich and slightly fruity ending with a mild bitterness. Weyerbachers best brew.

Outstanding. Rich dark color with a gorgeous chocolaty head and frothy lace, has a ruby lining that I didnt notice untill I was nearly finished. Powerful roasted malt/chocolate aroma. Flavor is velvety smooth with rich chocolatey malts, some dark fruitieness especialy cherry, lightly roasted, finishes with a touch of bitterness. This is now my favorite stout.

Opaque black color, brown head. Mocha, coffee, and roasted malt aromas. Slightly sweet malt flavor, hints of chocolate. Finish was of coffee. Velvety mouthfeel, full body. Very good stout.
