JohnnyMummbles (151) - Pitman, New Jersey, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Craft bottle pours a very rich full bodied stout. Aroma is somewhat sweet but not over powering. Appearance is very nice for a stout with a rich black bodie and tan head. Thought this beer would be to sweet but it was very pleasing, a great stout. A dark beer that most people can enjoy, hope you try it.

Bottle. Wow... Pour is rich black brown with big tan brown head that fades to a collar around glass. Aroma is nice coco and coffee with a belgium yeast. Taste is nice and creamy followed be yeast which then leads into coco and coffee with some soy vanilla. Palate is full a fizzy and bubbly feel, with a dry and chaulky finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9766) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium to small, fizzy dark tan to brown head, medium-short retention, though the edges remain intact, leaving enough for spotty lacing. Aroma is moderate malt (coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, roast), average hops (floral), and average esters (fruity) with notes of spicy alcohol, prunes, vanilla, port/vinous, and raisins. Flavor is moderate malt (coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, roast), average hops (floral), and average esters (fruity) with notes of spicy alcohol, prunes, vanilla, port/vinous, and raisins. Full body, high warmth, moderate carbonation, medium creaminess though the alcohol spices up and dries out the finish. Nice beer to start the Thanksgiving Day, a warming sensation and pleasant dark fruit notes throughout.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Pours an oily opaque with a creamy spotty-lacing dark tan head. Has a sweet rich dark caramel and chocolate malty nose with some complex doughy character and dark fruity complexity. Starts with good fullness and chewy dark caramel sweetnes with some molasses and raisin complexity finishing bittersweet and dark chocolaty. An enjoyable and complex imperial stout that should age well.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 21, 2010
THOUGHTS: Wowza! Brilliant! I was holding onto this one for a while before trying it. I just pray I can find some more. It wasnt quite as intense as Weyerbacher 13 was, but thats a good thing, because a young bottle of 13 was like drinking jet fuel. Even though I had this a little too chilled in the beginning it was just lovely, throughout. I could smell the chocolate from a foot away as I poured it. This might sound crazy, but it reminded me of the Mexican dessert, xango. There was banana from the yeast, much like the fried banana, cheesecake that is the base of the dessert; and there was lots of chocolate like the chocolate syrup that is drizzled all over the dessert and plate. It is especially true of the aroma. I would love to age some of this to get rid of some of the alcohol smell. I could feel the alcohol coming up and hitting my eyes as I drank. It was probably the best new beer Weyerbacher has made in two years. It also went well with dark chocolate. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured an opaque black in the glass with a small to average, light brown head that fully diminished. The aroma had heavy roasted malt,dark chocolate and chocolate syrup; moderate to heavy fruity, banana yeast; a little spicy yeast; soy sauce, cherry, lots of alcohol and xango. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet, bitter and alcoholic with a very long duration. There was chocolate syrup, banana, hints of coconut, chocolate-covered fruit, dark chocolate, roasted malt, cherry, raisin, prune, xango (but less than in the aroma), alcohol, and dark fruit. The full body felt a little lighter at times due to all the carbonation. The body was also rather oily with fizzy carbonation and a slightly astringent and moderate to heavily alcoholic finish.

keepersj12 (2714) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 8, 2010
Smoky malty aroma from a nearly perfect black pour with a creamy tan head that laced nicely. The flavor was sweet and boozy, maybe a little too much booze. Very nice and warming though as its about 30 degrees, wet and crappy in southern NJ tonight.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2010 Courtesy of northernbrews

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, banana, bubblegum, and roast. It pours a dark brown with a small tan head. The flavor starts with chocolate and faint banana. The finish has some fruit, roast, and alcohol. Medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and slightly oily mouthfeel. Really loved the aroma, but flavor didnt quite live up to the aroma expectations.

What to say, just not my thing. maybe Im a knuckle dragger. No sense in putting some belgian yeast in an imperial stout. Overcarbonated, dry bitterness, not much else.
