4.35/5 rDev +6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
bottle into tulip
appearance: pitch black with 1 finger off mocha head
smell: earthy hops, oak, roasted malt, smokiness, alcohol presence, subtle hazelnut and pecan on the tail end
taste: Getting lots of roasted espresso malt and dark chocolate malts, with an herbal hoppy presence. Has elements of the Stone RIS, but with a lot more flavors as well. Beautifully complex, the tail end really lets the rye and pecan flavors come out, and it lingers for quite a while. Not really getting much bourbon, but then again only 1/4 is aged in bourbon barrels. There's a nice smokiness in the middle, and there is definitely a huge warming alcohol presence, which blends in nicely.
mouthfeel: medium carbonation, huge thick bodied feel
overall: A great collab from Stone, they never disappoint. You can definitely tastes Stone's influence on this beer, I was getting some similar flavor notes from the RIS, but there's so much more to this beer, such as pecan, rye and a lot more alcohol presence is felt. It's very nicely balanced and highly drinkable.

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.
