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.

When poured into the glass it was dark brown to black in color. But when held to the light some gets through and you see some dark red peaking through. The head was creamy and slightly thick that was tan/beige in color. It lasted a good way to the bottom, but did not really produce a lace, which surprised me. The aroma was of roasted coffee, chocolate, malt, raisins and slight hops. The taste was a little sweet in the beginning. It had hints of malt, coffee, chocolate covered raisins and at the end some hops peaked through. The looks and taste of the beer were good, just not a thick as I would have liked for this type of beer.

Pours dark as night. No head. A wonderful smell of burnt toast and roasted coffee. Very little noticeable alcohol. Rather a huge roasty toasty rush of maltiness coats the tongue. Very drinkable and very different from some better known imperials. A must try for any lover of the style.

Black w/ no head & almost no carbonation. Intense chocolate & espresso nose w/ notes of dried fruit. Chewy feel but not overly thick. Sweet chocolate & coffee flavour w/ nice dried fruit accents. Dry (but not overly) bitter finish.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2002
Black appearance. Strong nose of chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Body is rich with light choclatey, roast. Smooth, dries out in the finish. Nice stout, lacking in a few areas: fruitiness and could stand for a little more roast. Nice beer.

Black, no head, no visible carbonation; aroma is toasty, espresso-like, but with a good shot of hop; fairly light bodied for style; chocolate fudge, sugar notes dominate a surprsingly straightforward palate. Smooth and oily body.

Thick, creamy, chewy...incredible. Dark brown...really blackish brown...well okay itís just black. The aroma is full of espresso, bitter chocolate, and a bit of caramel. The flavor is more of everything promised by the aroma. I didnít really notice the alcohol. In fact, I might have thought this was just a sweet stout...a damn good one. This beer represents all of the great qualities of the stout porter beer. If I ever doubted that this was my favorite style of beer before I will never again. The finish is still very creamy, just a bit dry, but it kinda coats the mouth and throat with a soothing film. It leaves the taste buds swearing that they just had a good strong coffee. Iím impressed. This is one great beer!
