fark and the wheaton.. wow, california is indeed a strange place

eyes...
one fingero of tan/cocoa head with a mild snap crackle and pop effect, the head settles down in mere instances, lacing is actually pretty nice considering the ABV looking to dissolve the suds and my spleen, the bubbles are that really nice clean standard foam that looks like a perfect tidal foray, you even get the little bit under the wave (roll your glass up and down to see what I mean), dark brown, really dark, like some space anomaly dark, I think I can see some light through it but it may just be some tachyon hops playing with me or maybe it is just Q...

nose...
booze, a nutty smell in terms of something like a mild peanut oil, barleywine sweetness, dark bitter euro chocolate, some coffee notes, there is a feeling of dryness encompassing the brew. but to be fair the big daddy on this block is the booze, in a good way (which of course is not always the case when beers cruise from the neutral zone into the high abv zone)

taste etc...
my initial thought was the nuts smoothing out the flavor (my friends will not let me live down typing that...sheesh), the nut flavor kind of holds off this massive booze wave reminiscent of barleywine and bordering on bourbon, in fact you almost get a bourbon infused dessert like note in the aftertaste that then melds into a thin layer of melted dark chocolate that sits there for some time as if painted on your tongue, quite a mouthful! this is a liquid velvet elvis painting in a glass... all the smooth, all the moves, and all the excess with peanut butter, graceland here I come. the carbonation is just lovely, it caresses your mouth, superb.

there is a bevy of flavor depth here, you get dark raisins, coffee, chocolate, peanut light (I can't recall pecans specifically in my mind so the closest approximation I can describe the flavor here is a light version of GORP from Carton brewing here in Jersey).

verdict?
see a bottle - get a bottle. get 2 and try one now and stock pile some more. I like it fresh but this should age nicely. Since there is no psycho hops in this the thing might mellow out and become smoother if possible. Delightful. Seriously a kick ass beer. I would love to finish with some cheesy STNG line... but I won't give you that satisfaction (aside from saying that beverly crusher was a milf before it was cool...)

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.
