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.

From the bottle poured a midnight dark brew with a very dark, voluminilus head. Aromas of chocolate and malt with hints of coffee. Full bodied with well balanced flavors of malt and hops with generous chocolate flavor and hints of coffee.

RasmusOtt (1118) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
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 (375) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours pitch black with a lasting, brown head. Look good, that’s 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 (635) - 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! I’m on the highway to hell...

mike67 (792) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2014
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.

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
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!

Bottle during a blind stout/porter tasting I had with Jenny. Dark dark pour. Notes of licorice, nice roasted malt, but something is in there I don’t quite like. Maybe a slight rice wine vinegar sort of taste. It’s pretty mild in any event. Nice complexity and sweetness. I ranked this #3 of 4, while Jenny ranked it #1.

Not bad. Not great either. Has a decent flavor but not much aroma. It's just kinda meh.
