22oz. bottle poured into a weizen glass.
Appearance: Dark brown almost black with a 1" tan head that quickly recedes to a thin cap.
Smell: Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, with a hint of bourbon.
Taste: Like in the nose coffee, chocolate, but also a little bit of dark fruit almost like a Belgian stout, the barrel has a light influence. Very light bourbon and vanilla. Tasty but otherwise unremarkable like a "barrel aged light", meaning it has some of the flavors present in great barrel aged beers just with less depth, much less. Not a bad thing at all as having a lighter barrel aged beer is a good thing.
Mouthfeel: Clean and light on the palate.
Overall: Very sessionable BA stout, worth a try.

Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout (1.0), ale brewed with pecans, wheat, and rye, and one quarter aged in Bourbon barrels. Roughly 1 year aged. 13% ABV.
A: Medium tan head, less than half a finger. Fades quickly. Utterly black in the glass. Very, very dark brown in the dimple, with just a sliver of darker golden brown. Decent head, but most of it slides right off. Very tiny, bright bubbles. Bubbles slide nicely along inside of glass as glass is tilted.
S: Pecans, rich cocoa truffle, nice solid Bourbon-y caramels. Slight oak notes. Very slight alcohol aroma. Faint grassiness.
T/MF: Very smooth texture. Lots of bittersweet chocolate! Paired well with a really strong Bourbon-y caramel presence. Dark toffee, very faint licorice, slight sweet coffee back note. Slight oak and char. Very slight sweet graphite note. Darker flavors coat the saliva, and last there for quite a long time. Quite complex.
Not quite as good as I remember, but that's to be expected, given a years worth a palate building (for a relatively newer drinker).
Damn I wish I was able to get a 2.0 for vertical. Even better: 3.0, as well! Oh well; perhaps I'll get lucky later, and get a hold of one or both...
Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, into a Belgian tulip glass.
Originally rated a 4.5, without review.
