look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: inky black with 1/3 finger of tan foams that linger. Very nice lacing that lasts.
S: Coffee, licorice, toffee, tapioca sweet and dark tropical fruit. Imagine dark coconut, dark pineapple sort of the convergence of stout to wheat. The pecan nuttiness also is on the nose.
T: Starts with licorice/ coffee, then the nutty pecan, chocolate cream and a burnt finish. Packs heat, but, and this may sound contradictory, hides the 13% to some extent with the wheat flavor. Tastes more like a stout with wheat flavor than a wheat ale supposed to taste like a stout.
M: Low-carbonation, heavy-bodied, medium-acidity. Again, packs the bourbon heat. Dank.
O: Very complex flavor, love the strong wheat flavor mixed in with the stout. I am geeked out right now.
Serving type: nitro-bottle

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.
