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.

Good thick head but a disappointingly weak aroma. The flavor's got nice sherry notes but it's just not roasty enough.

Aurelius (4576) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Viscous black pour, coolish label -- which would be better as an engraving or something. Clingy tan head. Great aroma with lots of raisiny malt and dark chocolate. Very smooth drinking, while still having a good roast character. A tangy whip at the end of the flavor before the finish. Persistant coffee finish, which gives way to chocolate and chicory. Meaty mouthfeel. Warming, dry and bitter. This is a very good beer, not to be consumed by those without a hairy chest (stout-drinking ladies excluded, of course).

DrinkingbuddyD (129) - Warsaw, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Black color. Dark tan head. Coffee aroma. Starts out with a malty and sweetness that evelops into a chocolaty, coffee flavor. Leaves a nice chocolate flavor on the tongue. It was very enjoyable and had a nice alcohol warming.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2003
Big roasted grain aroma. Paper thin palate given the amount of malt here makes this terribly drinkable. Think of it as a light stout and you'd be impressed.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2003 Dark, black with a khaki head. lots of coffe bean and chocolate, as well as some alcohol in the aroma. Roasty cofffe flavos. A very drinkable imperial stout.

Pours a deep brownish black with a brackish thick head. Nice hoppy coffee laden aroma with a splash of alcohol in the background. Smooth feel on the tongue. Rich, slightly bitter roasted coffee, and cocoa. Wonderful beer with a creamy and slightly bitter aftertaste. Glad I got a six of this!

BBB63 (6373) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Opaque black with a large tan head. Good lacing. Full-bodied. Roasted, nutty, molasses, and espresso hints on the heavy malt aroma. Detected lots of other aromas too, like prune, woody oak/tawny port, and resin hops. Sinful aroma! Bitter with some malty balance initially. The taste was masterful, very balanced, very complex on the palate. Oily yet creamy mouthfeel. Lightly alcoholic and dry finish. Damn, I was shocked by how good this beer was. Right up there with the best imperial stouts in the world. Very highly recommended. Yes, I must be an Old Heathen.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - JUN 23, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Great oaty, imperial aroma. Pitch black beer with a nice tan head. A bit thin given the style, color and aroma. Nice chocolate and malt flavor, but an imperial should be more.
