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.

nice pour... the dark head and dark burnt pugent scent that i look for in a stout.the typical choclate, malt flavor but a hint of licorice was very nice. the only knock was it is more texture then flavor

Pitch BLACK in colour. Very very malty in smell. Good malty taste and burnt flavours show through perfectly. A tad watery, but not too bad!

This stout had everything you expect in a good Imperial stout. Thick and black with a nice head and good taste. This sample was purchased from the brewery so it was super fresh.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAR 8, 2003
Very very black with one of the deepest brown heads I have ever seen! Moderate/slight carbonation with a slight slickness to the mouthfeel. Aroma is loaded with lots of coffee and chocolate, while the flavor also has some licorice qualities to it. Very smooth and easy to drink, and there is no way to notice the alcohol.

boto (2082) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 8, 2003
A very good imperial stout. Very dark, with a nice roastiness to the nose and taste. Slight coffee and chocolate taste. Almost no head, and what was there was brown. Very smooth. Not over the top with alchohol as some are. Definitely worth trying!

Ernest (7247) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 4, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2006 Head is initially small, frothy, brown, fully diminishing. Body is black (very nearly opaque). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), lightly yeasty (dough), with notes of vanilla and alcohol. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. Straightforward, simple, uninspiring, but pleasant.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2003
Wonderful black colour with a big (but quickly disappearing) brown/orange head. Aroma is complex: espresso, (bitter) chocolate, dark fruits (plums?), maybe even soy and vanilla. Toasted flavour with a smooth/velvety mouth feel, albeit overcarbonated. Nice dry bitter finish.

Beautiful appearence. Flavor is the same as the the raspberry stout without the fruityness. Good flavor choclatey undertones.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - FEB 14, 2003
Pours a jet black color with a small tan head that does not linger. The aroma is strongly smokey with roasted malts. Medium bodied with low carbonation, the flavor is mostly roasted malts and hints of coffee, with a lingering burnt finish. Not as complex as my favorite imperial stouts, but quite good and highly drinkable.
