Jet black, impenetrable to light. Thick whole wheat colored head recedes fairly quickly but does stick well to the glass.
Burnt molasses, charcoal, oak in the aroma. Smooth with hints of bourbon. Sweet overall with just a touch of rye.
Roasted malt with wheat toast and almond character in the beginning. Sweet molasses and bourbon in the middle. Subtle herbal hop. Finish is dry and grainy with lingering rye that sticks around in the aftertaste destroying the much anticipated smooth bourbon flavor.
Dense, sticky yet smooth in the front. Turns grainy and syrupy in the finish with a coarse texture. A bit overcarbonated for the style.
Not too impressed with this one and I'm usually a huge fan of stone. Pretty disappointing.

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.
