22 oz. Bottle. Several of the latest comments referred to this beer as having bourbon qualities. I found it to be like a very fine, complex wine. Absolutely an EXCELLENT beer that I couldn’t find a fault with. It was so complex in flavor, with the oak, vanilla, coffee and chocolate notes, that I cannot give this beer anything less then a perfect score, beause it IS the perfect Imperial Stout, in my opinion. This is the best thing to come from Easton, Pa. since boxing champ Larry Holmes! TERRIFIC BREW! lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2008

ABV, Volume & Calories: 8% in 22 fl oz. estimated at 400 C
Purchased at: Jack’s Wine Sense, Ewing, NJ for $4.99
Aroma: nice, wonderful, permeating, oak, liquor, tannins, rose, whiskey. 10 out of 10.
Visuals: medium high design, black, oily, thick tan head, great, sticky lace. 5 out of 5.
Taste: expertly balanced, heavy malt, heavy hops, heavy strength, heavy craft. 10 out of 10.
Palate: high quality, sandy texture, long chocolate finish. 5 out of 5.
Overall: It’s almost a crime for me to have beer this good for this price. This is a fantastic, affordable, high quality treat, I’ll have it again for sure, a new favorite, high value, expertly crafted. About the only thing I don’t like about the whole experience is the cheesy graphic on the label. 20 out of 20. Nsanders (1150) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Black and syrupy looking with lazy medium sized carbonation. Light chocolate, roasted malt aroma that is gentle. Flavors of oak and vanilla compliment the light bitter flavor. Medium mouthfeel, surprisingly smooth, carbonation is minimal. This is maybe the best beer i have ever had and i like the label to top it off. max3517 (5) - North Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2013 does not count
has been hitting them out of the park for me since I stumbled on them a few months back. I love this one. I love dark heavy beers and I would give it an "11" if I could. freekyp (2335) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2011 Another crowning achievement from Weyerbacher. Their Old Heathen is a flavorful stout as it is, but this brew takes everything that makes OH good, and makes it excellent. Vanilla and whiskey mingles freely with espresso in the nose. The aging has made this brew smoother and silkier on the palate. Strong and warming, but the alcohol is blended well in the grand scheme of things. Pours black as midnight and sports a healthy tan collar of foam with excellent retention. Pillowy mouthfeel. Aromas of deep raisin, whiskey and baker’s chocolate. Long burnt finish. Heresy is a fantastic night ender.

Pours a coal dust black and thick with no head like molasses. Need roasted malt aroma. Balanced malt and choclate flavor with hint of chicory on finish. stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2011

Now this was fantastic... definite Bourbon in the nose, but it faded towards the end... a much smoother version of the Old Heathen. Chocolate, some vanilla and toffee, and plenty of alchohol.
