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.

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a classic jet black with a tan head that recedes to a wispy ring around the glass. Smell is sweet with chocolate and cocoa with a note of hops and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate, licorice, touch of coffee, bit if booze. Very smooth and easy drinking for an imperial. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle from Wine World, Bel Air, MD. Roasted malt, coffee, some fruit in the aroma. Dark as hell. Smooth and very drinkable @ 8% alc. Mostly roast in the palate with hints of alcohol in the aftertaste. Good balance across the board here. Good buzz at the end, will definitely drink again.

Raspberries and dark cherries on the nose along with some slight chocolate Very mild. Not as dark as most imperisl stouts, with a negligible tan head fading into a tiny ring leaving no lacing. Solid taste, chocolate and fruit trade places with some nice coffee notes added. A little bit of roast while on the sweet side. Full bodied with some creaminess and a subtle dryness. Carbonation more present than the pour made it seem. Overall, a nice sipper for a cold day that I would not mind drinking again.
