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.

heavy in malt, but seems incomplete without the raspberries

Great tasting Imperial Stout, that looks, and tastes great. This beer reminded me of Rouge’s Shakespeare Stout.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 Bottle... This beer rocks!... The aroma is of warm, melted Cadbury milk chocolate or a very rich chocolate milkshake. There may also be underlying notes of this, that or the other, but who cares? Awesome aroma! Pours thick and black. Can’t see through this well-used motor oil even when held up to a 150 watt bulb. Light brown creamy, medium-sized head. Fully diminishing with minimal lacing. The flavor, like the nose, is filled with extremely rich, malty milk chocolate. Whoppers minus any sweetness! I should be drinking this in a movie theatre. Very well-balanced with a hint of roasted nuts and buttermilk and maybe a gentle touch of brown sugar. Hmmm? Ok, how about this analogy? Cadbury filled M&Ms with dark roasted hazelnuts or macadamias in the center? Good enough? Good enough for me. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Long, astringent, lightly bitter, dry finish. Excellent beer!

Damn! A fine imperial stout, though a fizzy one. The head sure did collapse quickly, but it’s got tons of coffee and roasty flavors to chew on! Maybe a touch of bitter sourness at the end.

Better than the raspberry, but it is pretty much the same.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 Rather dark with a creamy head that forms a ring, eventaully. ARoma consists of fruity hops, concord grapes? and milk chocolate. Yes, this is very carbonated, as Venom stated, for an Imperial. Quite acidic; slightly oxidized. Lacking in full body. Flavors do not bombard the palate like I expect from an Imperial but it hints at being complex. A very nice example, nonetheless.

ravidesai (947) - Bombay, INDIA - MAR 23, 2002
very dark brown near black color. short lived brown head. powerful aroma of coffee and fruit. great palate, soft yet chewy. vinous taste with a lot of heavyily roasted malts apparent. long finish and the flavors linger on for a while.

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!
