A - Dark dark brown, basically black with one finger of light brown head. Can't see any carbonation. Looks gorgeous, head dissipated quickly.
S - Nice roasty scent. Great chocolates and coffee notes reminds me of Bell's Black Note Stout. Has alot of body on the nose. Slight bourbon in there too.
T - Has a slight warming from the bourbon. Roasted coffee is so good. Slight oakiness from barrels. Chocolate isn't in your face, but bitterness is on point. Some nuttiness in there as well.
M - Full body. Thick and buttery. Awesome as it rolls on palate. How a stout should feel.
.O - Awesome! Love the nose, taste, and mouthfeel Looks beautiful. Want to replicate on a batch, if only I could.

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.
