Jeremy threatened my life if I didn't sample this beer. Bought this 12 oz bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY. Deep black pour with an inch and a half tan creamy head. Sweet aroma. Roasted coffee, chocolate, and malt. Sweet, sweet chocolate taste. Some coffee flavors, and somewhat bitter. Overall a really decent Imperial Stout.

Dark reddy/brown. Head thinned out very quickly. Sweet with fruit. Chocolate is a stand out. Moderate coffee flavours are fresh and light. Finish is soft and mildly bitter. Lots of carb, lots of fruit. Not as good as the raspberry. beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
Rich and chocolatey with some espresso to make you take notice. Pretty much solid black with a frothy tan head that diminished to essentially nothing. Very smooth with a dry, finish. At last tilt of the glass some port-like aromas hit me too. A little thin for an Imperial Stout but a decent example of the style. zach8270 (4021) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 3, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Pours a deep, dark black with a thick and lasting tan head that leaves good lacing. Faint roasted coffee aroma with a touch of sweet. Initial malt and sweet taste with an undertone of coffee and a roasty followup. Slightly bitter finish. radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2004
Dark black in colour. Aroma of chocolate, cherries and with mild coffee roastiness. Flavour was malty, mild coffee, chocolate but light bodied. Finished light with a medium bitterness.

Poured with a thick head which lasted quite awhile. Aroma of cocoa and dark roasted coffee with subtle fruit notes. Body is thin for the style yet smooth. Flavors are good, roasty malt, chocolate but finishing a bit too dry in my opinion. I found the thinner body, drier finish and lack of sweetness uncharacteristic for the style. Not an exceptional Stout but a decent one. FridgRaider (108) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2004
This beer looks so good pouring in a glass, with its jet black color and small brownish head. The taste is just as pleasing, with chocolate and coffee in a thick texture only an Imp. Stout can deliver. djrevnoir (26) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 26, 2004
Malty, sweet aroma, strong sense of caramel. Very dark colour. Flavour matches aroma, but no other elements are added to the flavour. Slightly bitter finish. Overall, very pleasant, but just not complex enough. Sturgess (173) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2004
One of the best weyerbachers out there...it's got a great flavor, dark bitterness that any beer drinker can appreciate...this one is a keeper. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2004
Licorice attack! This does not bode well. I'll wait for it to warm. Rough, roasty, thin mouthfeel. Finishes clean. I'm not blown away.
