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.

Pours nicely black, w/ a really good head for an imperial, but it fades quickly. Alcohol hits the nose first quickly followed by the imperial fruitiness. Charcoal, coffee. Mild sourness. Flavor is too thin.

Darkover (1517) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Very black with a big dark brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee and a little chocolate. Flavor is sweeter and less bitter than most Imperial stouts. Body is thick and creamy. Dry finish. Alcohol is well hidden.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 6, 2003
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2004 2/10/2004: Aged one year, and aged quite well. Good dark fruit caramel and oatmeal flavor with an oily texture. Warming finish, but very nice complexity. 5/6/2003: Rich dark body with a thin ring of head. Sweet roasted malt aroma and a touch of acidity. Chocolate bittersweet body with good light hoppy notes and a dry woody finish. A good well-rounded imperial stout. Quite drinkable and enjoyable, without the intoxicating effects of some imperials.

Gunshy (479) - Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2003
This beer poured black as night and formed a nice medium tan foamy head that left laticed lace as it subsided. A nice aroma of malt, coffee, plums and cherries. A flavor of malt, coffee and dark chocolate. The finish was a touch light for this style, but overall, a nice imperial.

jskendzel (602) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Lots of roasted malts present, and in fact an almost overwhelming, monotone characteristic to this beer. Little/no alcoholic punch and not too imperial for me. Lacking some dimensionality. Watery.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 27, 2003
A dark rich body with light roasted aroma. Slight fruity flavors mixed with the chocolaty almost toffeeish flavor.

Great strong taste, everything an imperial stout should be...my favorite thus far, Weyerbacher rules

slimjim (106) - New Jersey, USA - APR 17, 2003
A very good Imperial stout. No head, very dark. Not a bad finish either. Coffee like aroma, a very tasty beverage, i love it

argo0 (11556) - Washington DC, USA - APR 13, 2003
Pitch body topped by medium mocha head. Aroma is strongly espresso. Taste is coffee bitter with small amount of chocolate that provides a mild sweetness -- alcohol unnoticed. The body is fairly light despite the viscosity of the pour. Ridiculously drinkable for the style and the alcohol content.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2003
Slightly sweet aroma, with a hint of alcohol. Starts to the thin side, then fills your mouth with a touch of mocha and coffee. Finishes to the sweet side. I would classify this as more of a sweet stout.
