3.8/5  rDev -6.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from the artisan 1 pt, 6 fl. oz. bottle.

First off - excited just to have the 2013 collabo-brew. Suggested cellar temp for aging on the bottle. Tempting, but I wanted to try right away. I believe aging this stout would make this brew better than it already is.

Appearance: Oil. Pours on the thick side, almost pure black with a bit of brown mixed in (similar to the color of oil coming out of your oil pan.

Aroma: Nutty for sure. Dare I say you can actually smell the pecans. Followed by a bit of chocolate/mocha-coffee scent.

Taste: Right away, briefly taste the wheat malts (very sweet) and then the pecans, which are carried throughout the taste. Next, the Rye comes through and overtakes the wheat, giving a smoked, oaky flavor along with the mocha-coffee taste and the pecans. Boozey flavor underlying all of it, which can distract. However, at 13% and having a quarter of it aged in oak barrel stouts, the flavor is appreciated.

Mouthfeel: When I have a stout, I'm expecting a thick, almost creamy, mouthfeel. Surprisingly, the mouthfeel is not as thick as expected and is a bit dry. I THINK I like it?

Overall: Get this beer. In fact, get two of them - try one now, and try the other in at least a year. WIth some aging and letting those malts settle in, I think the beer would become smoother and even more delicious. Taste was very good and pecans added a new "nuttiness" that is a bit sweeter than usual. Coffee and mocha flavor come through well and the more I think about it, the more I appreciate the dry finish.

Bottoms up.

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.
