From: Cherokee Market Beer & Wine in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Aug. 16, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 17, 2013
Misc.: Born date of July 16, 2013 (I think)
Poured a purplish dark brown color, almost black, with less than a finger of tan head. Below average lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention.
Smelled caramel, toffee, wood, strong alcohol, bourbon, roasty nuts, dark chocolate and faint roasted coffee beans.
First taste made me grimace, followed by a second one that was a little better. Got walnuts (maple?), pecans, mixed nuts, toffee, caramel, molasses, bourbon, faint vanilla and dark chocolate. I guess the alcohol is pretty well-hidden, considering it’s 13 percent. Still tastes strong, but not 13 percent.
Full-to-medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Long, smooth, warming finish.
I thought this was just OK. It never really got better for me. I won’t try it again.

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.
