P: Pours a pitch Black Sea capped with a billowing espresso froth. Dense and great retention.
S: Roasted pecans glazed with brown sugar and molasses. Dark chocolate, rye bread, dried wheat grain and play dough. Swirling really releases the sweet bourbon aroma.
T/M: Sweet succulent confectionary sugar, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits are up first. Followed closely by bitter spicy rye, cinnamon, roasted pecan praline and a grainy earth tone to round out the mix. Bourbon swirls around dodging in and out coming and going. After the spicy carbonation slows its attack the mouthfeel and taste is similar to melted Dutch chocolate. Vanilla bean, no bake cookies and old wood. Subtly prickly thick n chewy body.
O: This makes me want to relax under a blanket on a cold day and watch "Stand By Me". Great warming sensation created by the boozy bourbon and decadent pecan praline. Spices mellow out the sweet and craft a beautiful beer. Gordie Lachance would have approved of this intoxicating collaboration.

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.
