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.

Pours a dark black with frothy mocha head that dissipates quickly. Dark fruit (plums, cherries) on the nose as well as coffee notes. Tastes of roasted coffee beans, figs, dark chocolate. Medium to high carbonation. Pinch of bitterness at the back of the tongue. A really rich imperial stout.

Holmen2 (1222) - NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
Black with brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and dark toffee. Similar taste. Fairly round mouthfeel, but with a slight hint of waterishness. Well in harmony and easily drinkable.

Holmen1 (2778) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
En winter warmer på en kald dag i mai, akkurat det vi trengte for å avslutte en vellykket bryggedag: fint skum som desverre raskt blir til en tynn film med llitt kniplinger. Forførersik duft av sjokolade, kvalitetskaffe og litt fruktig humle. Slank kropp gjør det lett å gripe til glasset igjen. Ikke for tørr, ikke for søt. Nam, nam, dette er lekkert!

Holy crap this is terrible. After 7 years of mostly IPAs, Black Tuesday ignited a taste for stouts. I really hope I got a bad bottle, cuz this tastes like cheap beer shit. I was hoping for something good given the current 98 rating. This doesn’t even taste like a stout. It’s got a sourish twang. I hope it’s bad. If I tasted it blindfolded I would never guess stout. Literally no stout taste

JHeath99 (1117) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a deep dark opaque brown with a layer of tan colored head. Aroma of roasted malts and intense chocolates. Taste pretty similar, with the intense chocolate mellowing somewhat.

Osprey87 (2041) - WALES - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. No date. I’ve had it around a year. Poured into tulip. Black, small tan head endures. Aroma - initially sharp, yeasty and alcoholic. Settles to caramel chocolate sweetness. Body - medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste - semi-sweet coffee caramel, yeasty, dank finish. Reminds me of Lion Stout, but a bit less complex. Good overall.

Black with a brown dense head. Coffee and liquorice on the nose. Mouth adds a pungent malty base. Full bodied, smooth and oily. Gentle alco warmth.
