3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with really no head. Aroma is raisin and alcohol. A bit thick, but not sticky sweet with little carbonation. Flavor is very nice, but boozy. Some dark roast, a bit of dried fruit and a bitter finish make for a fairly well balance, if a bit hot beer.

Most people have a co-worker, or a cousin, or a friend, who is a mountain of a man... some behemoth who towers over everyone else with imposing, sun-blocking presence, and is yet a real sweetheart. Very commonly, that guyís ironic nickname is "Tiny." Thatís whatís going on, here.
This is a big, rich, damned strong stout, thatís as sweet, smooth, and rich as it is massive. Tiny pours jet black, thereís hardly any foam at all. The aroma is like liquor; fruit and sugar and molasses. Thatís what hits up front in the flavor, and as it warms, coffee and hearty, nutty bread notes show up. At almost 12% ABV, youíd expect the alcohol to be big in the flavor. It is. Thatís fine. A slow sipping stout is just right now and then, and this was just right tonight.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottled date: 4/30/15. 12 oz bottle chilled and served in tulip. Small head is late to rise after fairly aggressive pour. Beer is super black in color with a thin dark tan head. Roasted malt aromas with serious smoke notes. Taste is lightly sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Complexity of notes including hay, chocolate, coffee, nuts toast, roasted malts, basement, leather and earthy leaves. But primarily smokiness. An absolutely full bodied beer with a sticky texture, soft carbonation and fairly smooth finish. One of the most complex and flavorful stouts I have personally tasted. Outstanding. Slow sipper. Would be perfect by the fire on a cold winter night (Though I am tasting on a mid-June night) Very enjoyable. Will try cellaring a few bottles. If you like strong stouts, this ones for you!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Roasty almost smoked aroma. The taste is dark toasty malt with Belgian nutty flavors. I think the smoked flavors come from the Belgian yeast and are not actually smokey. The finish is dry for the most part and finish with a slight boozy ness. Has slight vanilla bourbon flavors. This is a good stout, but generally weyerbacher stouts are very good, so as far a weyerbacher stouts go this is sub par, but still pretty good.

Heavy and rich. Thick and black. Truly fantastic with charcoal and tobacco. Sugar and cinnamon but a note of clove and heavy chocolate. Bottle

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Exited to try this one too! Bottle, ultra black beer, huge black walnut colored head, faded quickly. Aroma is bread, yeast, faint metal, molasses, dried plums, coffee. Taste is molasses, dates, bourbon, anise, coffee, and yes vinous aridity at the end. This is a big flavored beer, but the palate is not as thick and rich as a big impy stout usually is. Itís still great body, just not syrupy. Carbonation seems nicely subdued. Finish ends dry. This is quite good. My only faults, really, are thatís itís just a bit hot, and still a little sweet in the middle. Still, itís a big, roasty, fairly dry impy stout, and I love it!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown color with very little head. Intense chocolate aroma with hints of raisin and alcohol. Chocolate taste with raisins, spices and cinnamon. Spicy on the palate with alcohol warming.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (dark chocolate, roasted/burnt grain), with notes of alcohol, plastic, medicine, marshmallow. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic.
Pretty underwhelming...simple and somewhat rough malty nose, and the phenols are unhealthy. Very alcoholic too. I havenít had much luck with Weyerbacher over the years and this one isnít changing that trend unfortunately.

Belgian esters with notes of chocolate on the aroma. Appearance is black with a tan head. Flavor again has Belgian esters with notes of chocolate. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Overall, it's ok.
