Virginia Pour House Review: Weyerbacher hails from just about an hour away from where I grew up in PA. Their beers are mostly hit or miss for me, as mentioned in my review of their Maple Mistress Pumpkin Ale. So, how does Sunday Morning Stout stack up? It pours a pitch black color with a small foamy coffee-colored head. The aroma is mostly coffee with some roasted malts underneath and just the slightest hint of bourbon. The first taste bursts with rich bourbon, mixed perfectly with dark-roasted coffee and bitter black roasted barley notes. This beer is also viscous, leaving a coating behind in the finish. Subsequent sips are just as good, but the coffee pops through even more and the finish is mostly sweet bourbon. Weyerbacher does it again with a fantastic imperial stout. Well done.
