Reviewing from notes after drinking this one on 3/1/2014. Enjoyed out of a 22 oz brown bottle with the elaborate tribal-looking label (out of the three different labels produced). A faded bottling date of 6/25/13 is stamped near the curve of the neck on the bottle. Poured into a large snifter glass.

Appearance - Pour yields a dense, frothy head of about a finger and a half thick, the color of rich cocoa powder. It sits atop an opaque black body with just some hints of walnut brown where the light manages to penetrate. Retention is good, with the foam never fully receding, leaving a generous film across the glass and sparse, sticky lacing intermittently along the sides of the glass.

Smell - Very rich notes of baker's chocolate, brownie batter, pecan pie topping and complimentary notes of vanilla and oak from the bourbon barrel aging. There is also some spicy grain and roasted barley present to impart a pleasant bitterness to complement the sweet chocolate and pecan notes.

Taste - The smell was good, but the taste is where this beer makes its money. I'm honestly a bit surprised at how distinctly I can taste the rye, pecans and bourbon. It's like a chocolate pecan pie that was soaked in bourbon and flambeed. It's almost too rich, but almost--if you like pecan pie and stouts, this beer is for you. Obviously, there is a fair amount of sweetness, but it's not cloying or overpowering. The bitterness of the roasted malts keeps it in check.

Mouthfeel - Full bodied and viscous, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, lingering finish.

Overall, this is another great collaboration from Stone et al. Collaborations can be hit or miss, but both this one and Suede are really quality beers that I would love to see them produce again. That said, I've heard there will be a W00tstout 2.0, so I'll have to keep a lookout for that one with the hopes that it will be as good as this one.
