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 youll even discern notes of expresso or chocolate.

"i dug Heresy, the barreled version of this, but i gotta say, for an imperial stout, this came up a bit short. thinner and lighter in color than Id like in the style...tasted and smelled like some kind of hybrid stout/old ale...not a lot of "russian imperial" characteristics if that makes sense. i got one more that Im putting in the "community" section of the fridge."

Pours a pitch black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, bakers coco, espresso, licorice, and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma with the addition of light smoke, leather, burnt caramel, and anise. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy, semi bitter, long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty RIS that is pretty complex for only 8%.

Pours black with a brown head . Looks like a good stout indeed, Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, raisins, liquorice, ripe fruits and some notes of chocolate as well. Taste of roasted malts, ripe fruits, raisins, chocolate and a salty/sour note in the end. Pretty decent but a bit one-sided in the long run.

Vestergaard (912) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours pitch black with a lasting, brown head. Look good, thats for sure. Aroma has roasted malts, salmiak licorice, coffee, chocolate, watery toasted malts and a bit of dried plums and other dried fruits. Taste has a bitter roast up front, followed by pretty sweet, chocolate and caramel notes. Lots of dried, dark fruits here as well. A little bit of soya or watery saltiness in the aftertaste. Probably from the aging. Pretty flavorfull for 8% ABV. Full body and medium carbonation.

Black, with a creamy coffee colored head. Aroma sweet, coffee, semi-bitter chocolate, heavy cream. Taste oddly light. Roast, some chocolate, but feels watery. Kind of impressive that an 8% beer can taste watery but there you have it. Palate definitely bares out the 8% though.

GIJOE (927) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Pours black like my sin-lovin heart with a thin, tan head, that dissipates into a seriously misleading halo within a minute or so. Moderate lacing. Nose is not remotely hellish, but on the contrary quite divine. Notes of chocolate malt, vanilla, and a hint of anise. Taste is wickedly well-balanced: a devilishly nice hop bite with a huge malty base. This is a full-bodied little imp, mild carbonation, long alluring finish. Very tasty brew! Love it! Im on the highway to hell...

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, toast, cinnamon apple pie, dark fruit, chocolate and alcohol. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, plums, black current, chocolate, charcoal and herbal hops. Finish is long and dry. Complex, delicious RIS.

Bottle from Great Grog, Edinburgh. This inky black beer has no head. It has very rich chocolate and liquorice flavours, leather notes and a roasted coffee, chocolate, red and vanilla on the finish. Excellent!

Excellent stout. Dark brown almost black. Sweet taste of chocolate with a slight hop finish. Slightly oily on th palate. Taste both the chocolate and expresso notes.
