A: pours a nice dark black color with a hint of brown head.
S: Has a decent aroma of roasted malts with a some chocolate in the background.
T: The beer has a great chocolate, caramel, and roasted malts blend of favors. The aftertaste has maybe a hint of blackberry flavor to it.
M: Has an average amount of chew to it. I was hoping for a thicker, more chewy beer, but It was by no means thin.
O: Overall the beer was a nice imperial stout. The stout hits on some of the standard imperial favors, chocolate, roasted malts and caramel and delivers well with it. I would definitely recommend trying this stout.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass. Why has this one Weyerbacher always escaped me till now? Never seemed to have found it till now.
Dark black walnut body, but comes out of the bottle more mahogany brown. Leaves a bit of leg and slick top, but not too filmy looking, with a finger of cocoa coffee brown head. Very bubbled collar and thin puck, but manages to always stick around as head disappears a little quickly.
Real fruity nose. Hints of blueberry, soft roasted malts, a little charring, a faint hint of warmth but not overly boozy. Hints at a large beer. Quite an impressive nose actually for a regular imperial stout.
Funny aftertaste. Very odd. First sip seems quite palate full, bringing some of the hinting fruit, then the finish is very wet and thin with little to distinguish. Slightly acrid finish but with not much sourness luckily. Fruit feeling hints of raspberry, blueberry, and watery juice, almost as if it's a fruit infused stout. Strange taste of peanut butter in here as it warms.
It's ironically not that bad, but it's nothing like I expected, or unfortunately reminding me anything of a regular imperial stout.
