Decent sized brown head of varying sized bubbles that are very fleeting so the head reduces quickly. Lots of grapy vinuous notes in the aroma with some belgian candi sugar, some raisins, a bit of roasted grains and lots of sweet malts. Color is essentially black. Wow, big alcohol presence but melds very well with the malts. Again, lots more vinuous notes, some chocolate, mild bitterness and some blackened toast. Not a real stong flavor for an imperial stout and a bit thin on the body. Finishes roasty and hot. And decent imperial stout. jeremytoni (3083) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2011
From a bottle poured a dark brown color with a small amount of head. Strong sweet malty flavor with a lingering finish. jredmond (8787) - New York, New York, USA - APR 19, 2011
Draft with streets at RnH. Pours a pitch brown body. Aroma is mild roast and chocolate. Mouthfeel silky with notes of sweet chocolate syrup. TylerPow (122) - Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2011
Bought one for now and one for the basement. Jet black with brown head. Easy to pick up the alcohol in the nose with some earthy smokey notes. Smooth with a strong taste of oak and soy. Finishes with chocolate and a ribbon of warmth straight to your gut. beerchugger (717) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2011
Pours jet black, dark tan head, and lacing left behind. Strong and robust roasted malts coupled with Belgian yeasts. A bit fruity like dates and plums making this similar to a good quad in the nose. Heavy oily mouthfeel. This is more fruity than roasty to my surprise. Rich dates and plums are the easiest accessible flavors. Licorice is easily noted as well, a hint of soy saucse, and coffee combine well. A soft and warming booziness is there, which I find to be nice. The finish starts out sweet but turns a bit dry like coffee.

Multiple bottles of this. I really enjoy this beer any chance I can. Super black pour with a tan head on it. Smell is hoppy and full of roasted malts. Taste is sweet and hoppy, which is a unique combination. Almost like a sweet stout to me; this is one that I keep going back to if at all possible. Good stuff, one of my favorites from Weyerbacher. faroeviking (11273) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - APR 10, 2011
Flöska. Pitch balck colour, brown small head. Roasty and malty dark fruity aroma with dark chocolate, some alcohol. Good mouthfeel. Flavour has roasted malt and chocolate, dark fruit, some alcohol, medium bitterness. Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 5, 2011
Bottle at Papsø’s - Thanks. Pitch black - brown head. Licorcice, burned, malty sourish, fruity, ok hoppy, bitterness, earthy, roasted, high licorice. Very nice. LinusStick (3522) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2011
A very delicious impy. Aroma was weak for the style. Grainy and boozy with chocolate malt. Pour was a flat black with no rising bubbles or head which led me to believe the beer was flat. Turns out that was far from the truth. Nice carbonation delivers a strong mix of thick chewy chocolate. There is a spicy peppery flavor with each sip which I’m assuming is the Belgian yeast (I’m assuming that’s what was used since it’s labeled a Belgian style imperial stout). Gives it a nice twist, but it’s so faint behind the chocolate and bitter hops that it just tastes different. dabubbleboy (73) - Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2011
Jet black appearance with an almost espresso like head. Rich malty character. Very settle hints of chocolate. Went well with steak and asparagus.
