3.96/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
appearance: Very dark, as any respectable imp stout should be. Some ruby highlights around the edges when held to the light but mostly opaque. The mocha head and lacing is impressive given the 13%. A real looker.
smell: Smooth, fudge like, a bit of burnt roasty and hint of smoke. Smells quite good but not to knock your socks off.
taste: Quite smooth up front and much like the nose. A bit of a burn in the finish along with a touch of bitter, but pleasant imo, no complaints about alcohol presence. The alcohol is overall well hidden. This makes the taste more complex and enjoyable.
overall: very nice. Alcohol well hidden. Got another to put back and thinking this will get better.
Serving type: 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.
