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 youíll even discern notes of expresso or chocolate.

An incredibly good Stout, almost black in color, has a good balance of rich coffee and chocolate hints to it. An enjoyable beer to sip, and I agree about how the flavor lingers with Volgon. The best beer from a great microbrewery, probably my favorite beer of all.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 19, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2007 Black/brown edges with a small bubbled tan head that is fairly small, deep rich dark fruit (plum) and coffee aroma, smooth palate, an awesome beer. Old rating: While mild and light for an imperial stout, it has a deep flavor. Rich flavors linger in the mouth after each sip. Thanks VENOM!

Black in color; No head at all; Sweet nose. Grapey, alcoholic, warming, thick-high-grade viscosity. Lots of bitter in back. Very warming and thick. Did I say thick? It is thick.

Pours that deep dark brown to black color that I love, fantastic chocolate brown head, adequate lace. Nose is expresso coffee, bitter sweet chocolate, starts malt sweet, the middle is full, rich and complex, the finish is dry, hop presence and the abv noticeable. Quite a good stout.

This is the worst Imperial Stout I have ever tried (and Imperial Stouts are one of my favorite styles). Iíve homebrewed Imperial Stouts infinitely better than this simply lifted from recipie books.

A fine example of an Imperial Stout. Intense roasted flavors over a fruity full-bodied complex brew. Well done.

An excellent, chewy brew! The complexity of this Imperial can be compared to any other Imperial of itís caliber, but Weyerbacher just hits it right on the drunken head @ 8.2%
