look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
pint poured to a oversized wine glass
A- Black, as in dark molasses
S- Dark malts, alcohol, slight deep sweetness , much more nutty from the bottle than my glass
T- Alcohol right up front, dark malt, dark fruits like fig / prune, some chocolates, bourbon and oak - lots of alcohol, tends to overtake the other stuff that is going on. A heavy drink brings out more of the oak and pecans, but also a lot more booze.
M- Medium to thick , not syrupy though, low carbonation
O- I was expecting a bit more from this. A lot of boozeiness right from the get go till the end, to me the alcohol seems to take over the whole. Its a good beer, but I will probably not pick this one up again, but glad I tried it.

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.
