750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 6/21/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, raisin, plum, coffee, light char, toast, clove, pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, raisin, plum, dark bread, coffee, toast, clove, pepper, herbal, and roasted/yeast earthiness. Light yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, raisin, prune, light coffee, dark bread, toast, light pepper, clove, and roasted/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and yeast ester flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a great Belgian Imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and moderate fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Original Bottling

Poured from a corked and caged 25 ounce bottle. The thick black beer pours with suprising carbonation. Character of this brew is smooth and relaxed. Time has done this brew a favor. Smooth roasted edges lead into a dark fruit and licorice flavor, melding into chocolate and coffee. Finish is slightly dry and some of the bitter chocolate carrying through. A don’t get much of the Belgium influence in this, perhaps the age was dampened it. With the exception of hints of fresh dark cherries every now and again, I just couldn’t find the Belgium influence. Bottom line, a stellar 8 dollar c and c brew.

Poured from a cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is an oily, jet black coloring with a sparse, filmy, chocolate tan colored surface coating of head. Aromas of peat, roast, charcoal, dark chocolate, plum, and port characteristics. Very rich and layered aromas. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, with peat and charcoal leading the way, laying down a nice campfire base, with a rich, port character following, with old world fruit sweetness. Very layered and robust all over the palate. Bitter baker's chocolate, raspberry, plum, tobacco, and earth, with some tannin and terroir characteristics. The more you drink the more you find as you delve into this beer. Robust, smooth bodied throughout, with a smoked, roasted, rich aftertaste. Roasted, lingering, slick finish, with a bittersweet film left behind between sips.

A-almost black with a fingers worth of dark tan head

S-toasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, bit of molasses, and dark roasted coffee

T-roasted malt, roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and I'm also picking up some dark fruity sweetness and Belgian yeast. Does not taste like 12% at all!

M-full creamy body, prickly carbonation

Overall a very interesting beer. A real combination of an Imperial Stout with a BSDA. Very well done.

A-Black as night with thick 1 inch toffee head that leaves a thick lingering, lacing

S-dark chocolate with some dark fruits and candi sugar, molasses and sweet coffee

T-mouthful of Chocolate with some sublte notes of molasses and coffee that gives way to some slight boozy anise, some lingering sweetness but not in a way that tires the palate to the point where you can't drink anymore.

M-full bodied beer that explodes in the mouth due to ample but not overpowering carbonation

O- very good beer that I'll visit time and time again. HIgh ABV is well hidden among the chocolately flavors.. Compliments to Weyerbacher on this one.

With the taste of "stout" and "Belgium" collide, the mind doesn't think of things dainty, or finesse, or small- But Tiny is like having a chihuahua and naming him Killer.

The massive ale kicks off with a viscous and creamy appearance. Its dark weight looks like motor oil until it builds a tightly knit meringue on top. Its dark body is ominous with black opaqueness. Its head retains the session with intermittent lace throughout.

Bold aromas of fresh-brewed espresso and chocolate waft about the nose, but does so with an aura of wine-like complexity. Bunt toffee, molasses and charred toast fold in on scents of port wine, grape, and sherry wine. Its sweet and savory overtones are nearly mouthwatering heading into the first sip.

To taste, the expected flavors of espresso, bitter chocolate and hearty black-strap molasses align on the palate with full lush and savory effects. But the tart fruitiness of under-ripened berries, grape, figs, dates, prunes and raisins all take on an earthy stone-fruit flavor that heightens a sense of meatiness. Its light peppery qualities are spicy and bleed into the alcohol flavor for a mix of fresh-cracked peppercorn and brandy.

Its viscous mouthfeel is creamy and verbose with the ample carbonation and residual sweetness- kind of like a marshmallow peep for stout lovers. The beer's slow and even fade to semi-dry and spicy warmth textures extends well into the next sip.

The beer's super-bold flavor, feel, and complexity does a great job to deliver new tastes with each sip as the beer warms to reveal its secrets and the palate becomes accustomed to its charm. But one thing's for sure- Tiny is anything but small.

Poured from a cork-and-caged 750ml into my Chimay chalice.

Appearance - After pouring with vigor, a cinnamon colored head flashed up and fizzled away within seconds. Color is charcoal black with glowing tawny highlights just along the edges.

Smell - Raisins, roasted malt and alcohol combine to create an interesting, though not particularly strong nose on this one. Malt comes out more as the beer warms, revealing layers of brunt toast and just a touch of mocha. The alcohol is very evident here, which is not exactly a bad thing as it contributes a light fruit character to the aroma.

Taste/Mouthfeel - Roasted malt with some burnt, bitter character hits first followed by sweet raisin and prune which cleans up the palate. There are hints of smoke and wood in the taste that I did not get in the aroma. Alcohol is evident, drying the mouth. The full body feels sticky and heavy on the tongue.

Overall - The label says to expect roasted and vinous notes, which I get in a big way. I wan't sure what to expect from a Belgian style imperial stout, but it is sort of like a stout crossed with a doppelbock - slightly reminiscent of port wine. This is a solid offering from a solid brewery, and a nice sipper in some cold weather.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

a thick black pour wit 2 fingers of very dark brown head which dissipated into a fine tan ring. a very sweet overall aroma of pecans, cashews, molasses, cocoa, subtle roasted grains, mocha coffee. a very subtle bitterness from the roasted grains, followed by lots of sweetness from the heavy malt profile.. lots of roastyness, chocolate, coffee.. a very subtle flavor profile.. nutty and sweet.. the alcohol is very hard to detect.. which is pretty brutal for such a heavy stout.. though not as brutal as killing this thing by myself (a 750ml) on a weeknight. full body with low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a slightly chalky finish.

this has been aged for roughly 2 years.. and i can only say aging has done this beer damn well. not as good as their barrel aged stout, but damn good nonetheless. i can definitely admit to every sip bringing joy to my taste buds.

thanks to a long ago trader that i don't remember, unfortunately, for this one.

2010 vintage poured cold and black to a surly darkness snifter with a thin, long lasting mocha head with nice retention around the rim and lace after each sip.

aroma of molasses, dark fruits and a bit of smoky char.

light bodied, impressing as more of a super dark belgian as opposed to a stout, big carbonation, super light and sweet to the lips, creamy smooth.

scary drinkable, medium heat as it warms, 11.8% well hidden

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

A very dark pour out of the bottle, almost pitch black, with a light cocoa colored brown head to match with. Microscopic bubbles in the head, with a whispy top and no oily sheen. Nice milky way appearance. Quite nice.

Light roasted smelling dark malts, and a mild sweetness. Faded wet black licorice, candied sugars. Some quad like grape sensing fruit character as well. Not very hot smelling either. Quite solid, just seems like it lacks some possible depth. Hint of oak chips used in the brew? Dunno.

Interesting palate feel. Very silky, but also very light and borderline wet. Finishes with coffee and cream like flavors in the mid palate on first sip. Flavors are quickly fleeting on numerous sips, but does provide some fruity grape, currant and somewhat raisiny character. Slight woody character possibly perceived on the nose doesn't come through in the taste as much.

It's an interesting take style wise. Yup it truly tastes Belgian and a mix of classic American large stout qualities. However, it's decent yet not mind blowing. Always wanted to try this one, glad I did.

A - Solid black with a creamy mocha head. A ring of brown foam and patchy oil slicks remain after the head fades.

S - Vinous, milk chocolate, roasty malt, cocoa, vanilla, dark fruit, light alcohol, earthy but the only thing I can think of to describe that aspect is vinous.

T - Boozy, dark fruits, vinous, red wine tannins, bittersweet chocolate, burnt sugars, tart berry and cherry and more lingering dark fruits.

M - Medium body and creamy. There is a bit of weight from the heavier roasted notes but it still feels light and thin at times. Warming from alcohol.

D - Haven't liked many Belgian stouts I have tried. Typically too roasty or too yeasty. This is a wonderful blend of the 2 styles. A bit boozy but nice. Needs time to warm up.

A: Black with a light mocha head.

S: Caramel and sweet toffee with a slight roast. vegital almost like an olive. Funk and a dark oregon pinot noir quality.

T: Rum and sugar cane with brown sugar covered raisins and figs. This is all cut by spice and roast. Burnt bread with lots of belgian characteristics. Slight dark bitter chocolate.

M: Medium bodied with a good bitter finish.

O: Very impressed. i love all the belgian characters that play around in this stout. /91

Tiny pours black into the glass with a very small light tan head. A few spots of lace are seen on the glass.

The aroma grows as the beer warms. It's malty with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, nuts and dark fruit. A touch of medicinal alcohol is also present.

Each sip of this medium to full bodied beer is velvety on the palate with a firm carbonated fizz. The flavor is rich and malty. Chocolate, roasted malt, peat, a touch of smoke, and dark fruit. It finishes mildly bitter with a touch of citrus. Once gone the chocolate and dark fruit lingers on the palate.

Lots of flavor in this beer especially as it warms. It hides the nearly 12% abv very well.

An extremely dark pour. Solid black. Maybe something lighter, like dark brown, around the edges but only if you're on Mercury looking directly at the sun. There's only a thin head, less than a finger, with the first pour. It's not much, but it's brown and doesn't retain all that well. Given the high ABV, not all that surprising.

Strong smell of alcohol. Bittersweet chocolate and a ton of roasted grains add to the mix. There's also a noticeable fruit scent, likely from the Belgian yeast strain.

The taste is really exceptional. It's a monster of a beer, but no one single flavor overpowers anything else. Lots of malt, I'm thinking several varieties caramel and chocolate. A bit of charred, roasty malt. Kind of has a burnt coffee taste, which I find appealing in a beer like this. Has to be a couple kinds of chocolatey things in here, based on the mouthfeel. Oh yeah, alcohol is certainly present.

Has a grainy feel. Strong alcohol, but not outrageous. Sweet and bitter chocolate. There's an earthy, full bodied feel. Hot finish, along with a faint bitter finish that's slightly dry, but makes your mouth water.

A sipper if there ever was one. Drink slowly, or better yet, share. Particularly at the holidays. It's a great beer. Relatively smooth given the strength, it won't punch you in the gut with hops or alcohol, but after a couple snifters, you'll know you've been drinking.

750ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: Pours a very dark ruby color with good opacity. The head is very creamy; a one finger tan shade that fades slowly but surely. There's still a thin, consistent film remaining, so retention is quite good. Looks damn good, frankly.

S: There's a very pleasant mix of darker fruits, lighter ones, and plenty of fudgy chocolate. Licorice is prevalent, but not deterring; appearing more boldly as it opens up. This has a really likable aroma. In fact, I'll even go a step further: this isn't far off from Black Albert in terms of quality.

T: It opens with a lot of vinous dark fruit, with just a touch of supplementing cherry notes as well. A midtaste of chocolate and licorice is followed up by a bready, earthen finish. Caramel is strong on the aftertaste, with roasted suggestions popping up every now and then. At first sip, it seems quite boozy, but calms down after subsequent swigs. For a near 12% imperial stout - especially one brewed with Belgian yeast - it's a bit lacking in complexity. It's there, don't get me wrong, but not as vividly as it should be. Other than that, it's damn solid.

M: This is on the sweeter side in terms of the finish and aftertaste. It's also soft - no annoying astringency or raging carbonation here. Well, maybe a touch of the former, and it's certainly not annoying here. Quite the warming brew going down, as well. Despite that, I'd even call it easy to drink. But only just.

O: I wouldn't drink this cold, because it definitely improves the more it warms up. All in all, I like this one a lot - anything that bears a vague resemblance to Black Albert is sure to get praise from me. To be fair, it is a little rough around the edges in comparison, but it captures the good aspects of both a BSDA and a RIS well enough. A pleasant surprise from Weyerbacher; I'll having no trouble polishing this big bottle off solo.

A- Tiny pours dark black with a thick foamy tan head. Lacing is pretty much nonexistent.

S- The nose showcases chocolate, cream, dark fruit, and bready vanilla.

T- Bitter chocolate, dark roasted malts, and smoke are up front, with espresso, brown sugar, and booze on the finish. This is a very boozy brew. Bitter dark chocolate, peat, and dark roasted malts with a touch of oaky vanilla linger on the palate. Sweetness and cream open up as the beer warms. Don't drink this right out of the refrigerator. Let it warm a little to take the bitter edge off with some vital sweetness.

M- This beer is downright heavy with little carbonation.

Overall, I wish this beer was a little less earthy and smokey. The strong alcohol also makes this stuff tough. I like a beer with complexity- marrying sweet notes with cereal ones, while masking the high alcohol. Don't get me wrong: a little booze makes me feel more like a man for drinking it. But, this beer is all alcohol, burntness, and leather. It really only starts to get nice once it warms up. My advice: drink this warm- or drink something else.

I picked up this bomber on a whim, because the price wasn't bad. Served in a pint glass, it poured a dark rich almost black color with an impressive 1/2 inch head of rich brown foam. I was surprised at the amount of carbonation that hit my tongue on the initial sip making it super crisp. I tasted notes appropriate to stouts, coco and tobacco being the most predominate. Definitely impressed with this beer. Check it out.

Serving from a large bomber of 25.4 oz. Not sure how they came up with that size - but it's better than the usual - bomber of 22 oz. This is from Weyerbacher, one of my favorite breweries for many reasons.

This is their "Belgian style Imperial Stout". I wish some of these people on this review for this beer - would read the damn label. It says - just what it is:

"Belgian style Imperial Stout"

No it is not an Imperial Stout. It says so on the label.
No it is not a Belgian style ale. It says so on the label.

What it is - is a great drinkable Imperial Stout without the heaviness, without the heavy mouthfeel. With the - lightness and the OUTSTANDING finish of the Belgian style ale.

This is a great combination of styles that work together in concert. At first I was disappointed that it lacked the substance of the traditional Imperial Stout at the finish, but as you sample it - you recognize that you gain the substance and mouthfeel of the Imperial Stout up front, coupled with the velvety light finish of the Belgian style ale at the finish.

Actually, it's the finish on this beer that makes it is so appealing.
It reminds me of a great Chianti, the finish just disappears into a delicious vapor, but with this beer, it vaporizes into a delicious carmel bourbon vapor...And that my friend, is good.

Definitely not an IMPERIAL STOUT, nor a BELGIAN STYLE, but a happy marriage.
Imperial up front, Belgian at the end.

No it will never replace my DORIS THE DESTROYER or YETI as a reference Imperial Stout, nor my THREE PHILOSOPHERS or as a reference Belgian Ale...

This is a well crafted beer that is a well executed voyage to combine two desirable aspects of two wonderful styles - in one beer. And I'm smiling all the way to the refrigerator to get another!

Well recommended. Enjoy.

Number on the neck says 111810, I assume November 18th, 2010? I assumed this to be around 2 years old so probably. More like 2.5 years old I guess.

A: Pitch black pour. Dense and fluffy dark, dark brown head. Fades slowly, leaving no lacing behind at all. Decent head retention.

S: Sharp whiskey aroma. Lots of vanilla? Decent dark fruit, almost wine-like and earthiness. Very strong oakiness.

T: Huh, very interesting. Lots of alcohol, number one. Boozy throughout even given the age. There's some chocolate and burnt sugars. Lots of dark fruits blend in with figs and plums mainly. A little earth too. Finish is quite boozy with loads of oak and...cherries? Lingering booze and dark fruits in the aftertaste.

M: Big, heavy, huge, boozy.

O: Not a whole lot of stout in this one. Bottle doesn't state anything about barrel-aging but this one is very boozy and oaky so I feel like it is. But on the other hand, not real whiskey flavors. Odd. Regardless, the dark fruits in this one dominate. Kinda reminds me of Darkness in a way (though not as good). Roasted malt is just a little chocolate buried under everything else. Decent but super boozy and a bit unbalanced.

I picked this up at Wegman's, enjoyed chilled from the corked & caged 750ml in a snifter.

The color is an opaque deep black with thin cap of medium tan with fine bead and streamers of lace cling. The smell is very sweet with some mild fruity yeast esters and light alcohol aroma. The feel is dense with malt yet not cloying, moderate carbonation and light spice with semi-dry warming finish.

I enjoyed this at first with the dark currant flavor and slight toffee-like character but it seems sweeter as it warms with some alcohol flavors becoming more apparent and light toasted flavor with some chewy malt creaminess and slight molasses element with subtle bitterness in the finish Overall a decent stout, it has some belgian yeast fruitiness but it is a big beer to drink alone, I would recommend getting a couple beer fans to share this with -very viscous and practically a meal in a glass.

2012 vintage, I believe. In a snifter.

Jet black and completely opaque. Small crest of light brown foam failed to rest. Languidly sitting.

Very vinous, almost tart, but still blooming with dark roastiness and cocoa. Berry and tart cherry along with South American coffee bean. Very interesting nose.

Okay... unexpectedly chocolatey. Big cocoa and sugared coffee notes that peel into vinous notes in the finish. Earthy middle with an aged hop herbal note. Alcohol swells toward the end and helps produce a warm and sizzly finish. More berry and cherry tartness and fruitiness beneath the surface. Other notes include black licorice, dark caramel, raisin, and dried fig.

Very velvety in feel, but the body is only medium. It's growing on me more, as I'm try to appreciate a big stout that isn't super-thick and decadent-feeling. It feels easy and nice. Carbonation is superb; lightly spicy. Alcohol is held in check, efficiently.

Nice take on a borderline sour stout. The Belgique brings out the dark fruits and wineyness nicely. I'm logging this on my radar.

A - Pours not as thick as a stout should be. Black body with no head to speak of with an aggressive pour.

S - Chocolate, licorice, belgian yeast strains & oak. Odd combo in my opinion.

T - Dark, slightly tart fruits that develops into some malts with dark chocolate, bitter finish.

M - Light body and very low carbonation.

O - Funky, kind of tart stout. Odd mix of flavors that just don't mesh well for me.
