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 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.

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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2003
A very solid, well balanced beer, lots of coffee and chocolate and roasty malts, as you would expect, quite subtle, which i liked, nice balance and decent mouthfeel, with nice bitterness.

savannah (37) - columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Pretty good. It has a nice chocolate aroma, and inoffensive palate for an Imperial Stout. The body is a little 'thin' for my preference. The flavor is subtle, but very nice dark patent malt. Beautiful black color with tan head that retains until the end.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2003
Incredibly thick; Motor oil thick. Very black with a ruby brown edge and cocoa powder head. Very smooooooth body filled with roast coffee flavor along with a little sweetness and some sourness at the quiet finish. Some fruit in here - maybe figs? I don't taste any alc in this, and only a trace of hops.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2003
Inky black, virtually no head. The flavour seems to be somewhat sweet and tart to start (cola-ish), with a hoppy finish. Not much complexity. I tasted this one after Storm King, and I prefer the Storm hands down.

A nice dark stout. I feel the higher alcohol content a bit more with this one.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2003
Pours black, with a dark tan head. Smells of coffee. Coffee and toffee, butterscotch, as well as burnt chocolate and some mild bitterness. Palate is viscous, but nothing like their Barley Wine. Very impressive beer.
