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.

An incredibly good Stout, almost black in color, has a good balance of rich coffee and chocolate hints to it. An enjoyable beer to sip, and I agree about how the flavor lingers with Volgon. The best beer from a great microbrewery, probably my favorite beer of all.

This beer looks so good pouring in a glass, with its jet black color and small brownish head. The taste is just as pleasing, with chocolate and coffee in a thick texture only an Imp. Stout can deliver.

Poured syrupy thick and very very dark black, with a brown head. Nose rich, malty, with hints at plums, dates, and vanilla. Flavor more of the same, and superbly balanced between the dark fruit malts and a roasted bitterness. Outstanding Imperial Stout, and a must have for any lover of the style.

Now THIS is a great stout! Forget the overrated drag that is Guinness. Weyerbacher has made an excellent stout that doesn't have the makeup of mud yet still retains that favorite used motor oil color. Oh yeah, it tastes great, too. For those of ye who are not big stout fans (such as myself), do give Old Heathen a try.

An excellent, chewy brew! The complexity of this Imperial can be compared to any other Imperial of it’s caliber, but Weyerbacher just hits it right on the drunken head @ 8.2%

Bottle from the local taphouse. Very tasty imperial stout. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head.
