“Massive”… it’s the only way to describe it…

I just finished a bottle of Weyerbacher Thirteen… their 13th anniversary Imperial Stout. At 13.6% ABV… it’ll *rock* you!! Picked this up at Downeast Beverage during a brief foray to Portland, Maine last week. The details…

Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a medium dark tan head that stuck around to produce some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet and heavy with dark fruits, coffee and chocolate. Flavor is a bit sweet and fruity (raisins, prunes) to start, but the bitterness of the hops and the dark roasted malts quickly fills in. Lingering sweet and then bitter finish with chocolate and coffee dominating at the very end. Some alcohol, as you might expect with a beer of this strength, but is is not overpowering and fits in pretty well with the rest of the flavor profile. Very complex… Really good…

Definitely worth repeating… yummy!
