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.

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 (7032) - 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.

notalush (5561) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2003
Nearly black appearance, with a dark tan, moderate head. The aroma is of bitter-sweet chocolate, which is also a major aspect of the flavor. There are also flavors of lighty sweetened coffee and even some fruit (dates, plums), but not much. The body is a little thin, and the flavor is not quite as complex as most of my favorite imperial stouts, but this is still very good. It tastes pretty much just like their raspberry imperial stout, just without the raspberries, which, for me, is a good thing.

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2003
Aroma is strong, of chocolate and coffee. The is a smooth stout, rather good and full-bodied. The alcohol is not very prominent, so this beer is very easy to drink. Thick black opaque color and tan head, as all good Imperial Stout's have.

JPDIPSO (5153) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 12, 2003
Opaque with only a hint of chestnut around the edge when held to the light. tan head that subsides to a small covering. Dark chocolate, Sweet coffee and a touch of lactos in the aroma. Light oily/silky body. Dark rich chocolate and burnt toast flavors. Very sharp acidic bitterness in the finish takes away from the overall enjoyability. A bit more like a baltic porter. The EToh is very well hidden

Very good imperial stout from Weyerbacher. Full bodied and thick tasting. Roasted malts, rich coffee and an bitterness not unlike unsweetened chocolate.
