We pour a brew of dark molasses brown into our Founders snifters. It throws a towering two and a half finger tall head of chocolate milk colored shimmering foam, showing excellent retention. It slowly bubbles away, leaving thick and cakey sheets of lacing circumferentially around the glass. The aroma gives rich milk and dark chocolate sweetness, buttery bourbon warmth, deeply roasted coffee and chocolate maltiness, fusel booziness, mossy wood, nori saltiness, drying rye, burnt peanut shell oiliness, brown paper bags, sticky plums, fig and raisin syrups, metallic molasses, and faint white vinegars with warmth. Our first impression is that while this beer is relatively hot, the inherent warmth of the flavors finds nice harmony with the booze and the bourbon. As we sip, the taste opens up with fusel booziness, nail polish remover, honey sweetness, big rye graininess, yeasty metallic bite, fruitiness of raisins, plums, and figs, salted caramel, aromatic molasses, and musty plastics. Peeking through the middle is genuine pecan pie sweetness, with buttery crust, candied brown sugar, and meaty fig fruitiness. Mixing in are notes of big bourbon warmth, roasty chocolate malts and dark chocolate syrups, light char of cooked barley, rye bite, bitter booze sweetness, spicy black pepper, and the beginnings of faint woodiness that gives a sweeter coconut vibe. The end glugs through like motor oil, giving vanilla bean coolness, dark chocolate fudge, white sugar, biting wet wheatiness, rye metallics, big booze and bourbon heat, faint lemon burst, cork, green grassiness, sour moldy barrel, and buttery diacetyls. The aftertaste breathes bitterly of wheat and rye, roasted pecans, construction paper dryness, drying woodiness, candied cherries, alcohol, cinnamon, black pepper, chalked yeast, dirty roast of chocolate and coffee malts, toasty pumpkin seeds, sweaty saltiness, and burnt marshmallow sweetness. The body is full, and the carbonation is medium. Each sip is wonderfully creamy, with nice slurp, smack, froth, foam, and crisp finishing pop. The mouth is left thickly coated with oily slickness. This is warming, and leaves the mouth with moderate boozy astringency and puck. The abv is apparent but appropriate, and the beer sips the night away nicely.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this beer was its strong look, and nicely blended flavoring. The nose, comparatively, started out nicely, but with warmth became excessively boozy, which overshadowed the buttery warmth and goodness of the wood and the included nuttiness. Through the flavoring, however, while the rye inclusions were relatively present and contributory throughout, the wheat came through strongly at the end of the sip, offering enhanced bitterness and an unfiltered earthy quality. This blended nicely with the sweetness of the base grain and the warmth and robustness of the bourbon for a pleasant finish. The feel on each sip contributed smooth oiliness, and gave cadence and cohesion to the ultimate picture. This was a nice collaboration for Stone, with curious and well-married ingredients, but the boozy hotness did, at times, make the beer slightly less approachable. That said, this is certainly worth your time.
