Bomber poured into a Duvel tulip. Deep, black body with about a one-finger dark tan head, but very little lacing, as expected, from the high abv.
Very nice aroma that is very complex. I get notes of vanilla, cherry, bourbon, molasses, and light amount of nuts, probably from the pecans.
A slight step up from the aroma, the flavor continues as a very complex and rich blend. The roasted malt becomes dominant in the flavor, blending with all the aforementioned notes. A very tasty stout indeed.
The only (minor) drawback is that it is a little thinner than expected in the mouthfeel. Overall, an excellent stout, with some added unusual ingredients. Highly recommend.

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.
