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.

Pours a deep sable brown with khaki lacing. Roastiness dominates the aroma and forms the backbone of the flavor with a bit of dark fruit and chocolate. It finishes with a small but lingering bitterness. Not as intense as some stouts but very enjoyable.

Look - Nice black body and medium tan head with aggressive pour. Thick bubbled head. No lacing. Smell - Coffee. Chocolate. Malt. Caramel. Belgian? Taste - Malt. Chocolate. Caramel. Coffee. Dirty. Alcohol is prominent at the end. Feel - Creamy and heavy. Carbonation throughout but not a bomb. Overall - A good imperial stout with little over the top features. Can’t really complain with that.

4 oz. draft at the brewery in Easton, PA. Opaque black color with tan head. Aroma notes of roasted malt, cocoa, light coffee, smoke and faint dark fruitiness. Taste adds caramel, char, faint vanilla and earthy bitterness. Medium-heavy body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy, dry with bittersweet roast finish. Pretty solid, yet average, imperial stout. Great base for the bourbon barrel aging done later!

ctipping (132) - Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2015
12 oz. poured into a goblet. Black, perhaps dark brown. Does not look viscous. Tan head that vanishes quickly to leave only a trace of carbonation. Roasty. Very roasty. Chocolate aroma, maybe coffee, but mostly roasted malt. Bitter right at the start. Some chocolate, some coffee. Mostly the same as the smell. Finishes with a roasty malt flavor. Thin for a big stout (not all that big, really). It finishes a bit dry. It could use a bit more body. Not much alcohol, but it’s only 8%, so I probably wouldn’t even notice it if it were prevalent. Kinda uninteresting, but well made.

BierMeHoos (328) - Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle. Appearance is oil black with a two finger light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, molasses. Taste is roasted and caramel malts and dark fruits. Palate is on the lighter side. Overall pretty good for the style.

jjsint (1344) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle from Bacchanalia, Cambridge. Purplish brown, flat, opaque. Chocolate, chimney smoke, hint of coffee. Yeah, the black olive is massive in the aroma. Sweet syrupy taste with a hint of Christmas pudding. Some bitter hop rounds off the finish. Light palette and short finish, but you can’t have it all.

huineman (400) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 6, 2015
Brown black. Minimal head. Fantastic aromas: coffee, Maggi sauce, soy sauce, black olive, chocolate, tobacco... very complex. Not very tasty. Thin and short-lingering. All it promises on the nose comes out as a lie in the mouth. True pity.

SudsMcDuff (6778) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Never been a fan of Weyerbacher, their beers are always too sweet or massively heavy, this specimen was good but still not great .. Dark brown black .. Foam was impressive .. Dark malts, candu sugar, and ink .. Mild feel and a cloying finish .. A typical Weyerbacher beer, no subtlety .. . . A carb stone is neither stone nor carbohydrate..,

scotchzombie (418) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2015
Pours an inky cool black with a slow-forming and fast-disappearing tan head. Aroma is chocolate malts and soy sauce. Taste is crisp, tangy and malty. Notes of roasted chocolate and coffee. Some lingering bitterness at the finish. Decent enough but not memorable.

Mep3222 (845) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - APR 25, 2015
Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, slightly sweet. Taste is a very full flavored, chocolate maltiness. Perfect balance between sweet and bitter. Slight sweet up front and slight bitter finish. Really a great stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
