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.

Aromen av vanilj och chocklad. Smaken lite mer citrus, kanske lite lätt i kroppen.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2014
undated 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark, reddish mahogany with a small tan head. A robust stout with a solid dark malt base. Hints of coffee and plums and cherries in the surprisingly fruity aroma. Light spicy hops and smoke come out more in the taste; which is rendered less fruity, but even mor complex, than the aroma. Excellent level of mild bitterness overall, despite a somewhat sweet start. The flavor lingers a good while in the dark malt aftertaste. Other than a hint of sherry in the taste and, more so, the aroma, the 8% alcohol is well hidden. Feel: remarkably smooth and creamy. Full bodied. Slightly dry finish. O: Excellent RIS. Richly flavored and very well balanced. No burnt notes and just a hint of smoke despite the ample, dark roasted malts.

Drank it both from a bottle and from the brewery in the same outing. A very nice experience. Great color but the lacing? If you can find it please have a few with your mates.

onceblind (4541) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Black pour with a foamy latte head. Nose is sweet and creamy with vanilla notes and chocolate custard, and lightly roasted malts with a touch of toast. Flavor is bittersweet with lots of earthy roast but with ample sweet chewy chocolate tones, Boston Creme, toast, and a bit of earthy burnt tones on the finish. Quite lovely.
