An incredibly good Stout, almost black in color, has a good balance of rich coffee and chocolate hints to it. An enjoyable beer to sip, and I agree about how the flavor lingers with Volgon. The best beer from a great microbrewery, probably my favorite beer of all. 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. PhillyBeer2112 (2884) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2001
Poured syrupy thick and very
very dark black, with a brown
head. Nose rich, malty, with
hints at plums, dates, and vanilla.
Flavor more of the same, and superbly
balanced between the dark fruit
malts and a roasted bitterness.
Outstanding Imperial Stout, and a must
have for any lover of the style. kalisto9 (73) - Crafton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2003
Now THIS is a great stout! Forget the overrated drag that is Guinness. Weyerbacher has made an excellent stout that doesn't have the makeup of mud yet still retains that favorite used motor oil color. Oh yeah, it tastes great, too. For those of ye who are not big stout fans (such as myself), do give Old Heathen a try. lemasney (398) - Trenton, New Jersey, USA - APR 8, 2008

peat-smokiness adds a nice complexity as is remains faint.
great as session beer and with food.
An excellent, chewy brew! The complexity of this Imperial can be compared to any other Imperial of it's caliber, but Weyerbacher just hits it right on the drunken head @ 8.2% rcasta (864) - EL SALVADOR - APR 15, 2008

Bottle from the local taphouse. Very tasty imperial stout. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Taste is sweet and bitter, with very long length. Palate is syrupy, and full bodied. Black, with a frothy head. TorbenJensen (1548) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2015
Cool light brown and creamy foam. It does not last as long after pouring, but leaving small islands of foam on top. It leaves beautiful lace on the side of the tube and has an incredible enticing aroma of hard roasted malt and chocolate. The taste is malty of the aforementioned hard roasted malt, but it also brings some coffee notes and dark bitter chocolate notes. Hop bitterness is gentle and leads to long finish. A little smoked character is finally in flavor nuances and it is an imperial stout that is incredibly delicious and very good.
