W00tstout... from the cellar to the snifter.
A one-finger tan head fizzles away fast. It's your basic black color that most stouts have, but it really isn't as black and thick-looking as I would expect such a huge imperial stout to look.
It smells like vanilla, bourbon, maple syrup, molasses, milk chocolate, and raisins. Yummy. I think there's some caramel and earthy coffee in the aroma, too.
And the taste... "W00" is right. Vanilla, boozy bourbon, molasses, licorice, roasted earth, and a kind of nuttiness in the aftertaste... must be those pecans. The alcohol is pretty obvious... pretty conspicuous... but I don't mind its bold prominence. The sweetness here is tempered by the nutty, earthy, roasty dimension, making it all meld together quite nicely. Also... it took a while of sipping it, but a spicy rye element DID emerge long into the finish. Impressively true to the ingredients advertised.
The feel is fabulous... it's ridiculously thick and creamy, just how I like it in these kinds of stouts.
An imaginative ale which blends together a nice combination of complimentary flavors. Sip slowly though, or face the hung-over consequences.
