COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2008’s anniversary ale - a hyper, Belgian inspired Imperial Stout clocking in at 13.6% abv, but incredibly balanced, smooth, and tasty.

(22oz bottle from Beer Sommelier! Thanks Matt). Pours black with brown head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lacing. Aroma has caramel, oats, light coffee and some alcohol. Taste is sweet with some caramael and vanilla. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Smooth finish. Pretty good and abv is well hidden for the most part.

22oz, stored properly for the past 2 plus years. Black as night pour with darker coffee head. Malty, chocolate aromas actually pretty sweet, no signs of oxidation. Super smooth on the palate, huge chocolate and roasted malts. Very balanced and age has done so well with this one. I would say another year or so before degredation.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2011
Bottle from New Beer Distributors, NYC, vintage 2008, 2½ years old
The color is pitch black; the head is medium sized, beige, but not persistent. Very strong aroma of tar, roasted malts, liquorice, coffee, phenols. Strong body, but also strong alcohol upfront; the first flavor to pick are liquorice and tar, followed by roasted nuts and light biscuits; there is a touch of vanilla; luckily the sweetness, moderate, wins over the black malts; the final is very warming. Very good, mature.

Bottle. Never had it fresh, so I have no idea how it’s aged. Pretty sweet, lots of chocolate in it. Pretty standard big stout.

Bottle- Opaque black color, aroma is sweet and floral with a barrage of spices more common of a lighter beer. High alcohol noticeable but well masked. Taste starts out as chocolatey and roasty but then the spicyness really kicks in toward the end with a bitter aftertaste. Very active and dynamic on the palate. About what I expected from a quality Imperial Stout. Good option, glad I had this one.

Bottle: been holding on to this one for a while, pours dark back with a thin tan head, has that sweet belgian aroma you get from most dubbels, taste is sweet, chocolaty, some coffee, roasted malts, full bodied.

mcberko (6443) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2011
22 oz. bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of oatmeal, roasted notes and light chocolate. Flavour reveals intense roasted characteristics, with a little oat and chocolate, followed by a yeasty finish. Full-bodied and a robust palate. Extremely well done.

Enormous, insanely large stout from the happy Pennsylvanians at Weyerbacher. The years have been kind to this beer, tempering that wicked near-14% ABV just enough to make this brew decadently sippable. There’s enough heat to remind you this brute is no meager Imperial Stout, but the complexity of flavor easily makes any liquor burn bearable. The flavor is mocha and chocolate and yeasty, peppery Belgian spiciness, with a mild undertone of barbecue sauce and tobacco. The finish tingles like a beer of this size should, and the lingering aftertaste is neither overly sweet or bitter. Excellent anniversary creation.
