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.

Let me preface this by saying this is a bottle I've cellared since 08 so it's got about 5 years on it. I'll rerate when I can find a fresh bottle. Pours a deathly black. No head or lacing. Fine smell of cocoa and bitter espresso. Mouthfeel is very thin and no carb. Age. Taste is very oxidized. Age. Little chocolate dark fruit and milk chocolate. Meh. Pretty lousy. Tastes like flat Coke. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Killcore (22) - - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, from De Hopduvel in Ghent. A pretty old bottle it seems. Pours a completely opaque black, with a small, quite pale and detailed head. Aroma: chocolate and caramel, with some subdued roasty and herbal notes. Taste: Very smooth. Smooth milk chocolate, smooth cocoa, smooth coffee. Everything is quite sweet (but in moderation), and makes me think of a nice chocolate cheese cake. Finish, on the other hand, is somewhat unexpected - predominantely herbal, with bitterness reminiscent of sage and gum-tree. All in all - an intersting mix. Overall: A very nice beer. A great companion for a stormy night in Rotterdam.

Maltser85 (146) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours black with a nice two finger mocha colored head. The aroma is a bit faint. Maybe some oxidization...some soy sauce, slight grain, slight dark fruit, maybe a hint of coffee or chocolate. Some decent carbonation, muted flavors up front. Middle of the palate is some slight chocolate/bittersweet chocolate. Maybe some hop bitterness with carbonation on the back end. Chocolate comes back in in the finish with some slight alcohol warming. Medium Full body. Average

darlo76 (2) - USA - NOV 11, 2013 does not count
From cask: very smooth, but the vanilla after taste hung in the mouth a little longer than I would have liked. Overall very drinkable with a light aroma and taste (for a stout).

ChiGuy68 (346) - Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2013
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured dark brown to black with a thin brown head and minimal lacing. Pungent chocolate malt aroma. Smooth roasted malt taste with a hit of coffee.

brystmar (1113) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Smells a bit oxidized. Thin body; blackened malts and a bit roasty, yet doesn't grab me in any way. Little high in booze. Bad.

Stout had a six pack from home with Vince. Good stout but forgettable. What else can I say, notes of coffee, dark roast and toffee.

NasalBasil (19) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours black with a faint beige foam that tries to form a head, but fails. Aromas of malty espresso and sweet chocolate. Little to no carbonation, full bodied and delicious. Goes down very easy for such a high alcohol content.
