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.

12 oz. poured into a goblet. Black, perhaps dark brown. Does not look viscous. Tan head that vanishes quickly to leave only a trace of carbonation. Roasty. Very roasty. Chocolate aroma, maybe coffee, but mostly roasted malt. Bitter right at the start. Some chocolate, some coffee. Mostly the same as the smell. Finishes with a roasty malt flavor. Thin for a big stout (not all that big, really). It finishes a bit dry. It could use a bit more body. Not much alcohol, but it’s only 8%, so I probably wouldn’t even notice it if it were prevalent. Kinda uninteresting, but well made.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Appearance is oil black with a two finger light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is roasted and caramel malts and dark fruits. Palate is on the lighter side. Overall pretty good for the style.

Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Purplish brown, flat, opaque. Chocolate, chimney smoke, hint of coffee. Yeah, the black olive is massive in the aroma. Sweet syrupy taste with a hint of Christmas pudding. Some bitter hop rounds off the finish. Light palette and short finish, but you can’t have it all.

Brown black. Minimal head. Fantastic aromas: coffee, Maggi sauce, soy sauce, black olive, chocolate, tobacco... very complex. Not very tasty. Thin and short-lingering. All it promises on the nose comes out as a lie in the mouth. True pity.

Never been a fan of Weyerbacher, their beers are always too sweet or massively heavy, this specimen was good but still not great .. Dark brown black .. Foam was impressive .. Dark malts, candu sugar, and ink .. Mild feel and a cloying finish .. A typical Weyerbacher beer, no subtlety .. . . A carb stone is neither stone nor carbohydrate..,

Pours an inky cool black with a slow-forming and fast-disappearing tan head. Aroma is chocolate malts and soy sauce. Taste is crisp, tangy and malty. Notes of roasted chocolate and coffee. Some lingering bitterness at the finish. Decent enough but not memorable.

Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, slightly sweet. Taste is a very full flavored, chocolate maltiness. Perfect balance between sweet and bitter. Slight sweet up front and slight bitter finish. Really a great stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark black pour with brown head. Boozy fermentation with roast coffee aroma. Thinner than expected for an imperial stout. some roasted malt in the finish. Flavors of cocoa bitterness and some earthy hop, nice. Taste is more like a foreign stout than an imperial.

pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is a sweetish chocolate malt. Some coffee notes. Taste is full rich malt. Some burnt toast. Some coffee. A mild bitter fades in and lingers through a fairly quick finish. A well balanced, quite enjoyable stout. Good beer!
