Another beer that I've got in trades with bnuno, thank you again!
A: The body is thick black with a head with a caremelized coffee color.
S: The aroma is malty, hoppy, the alcohol is very expressive as long with the bourbon aging of the beer. Nice things were done here.
T: The taste is semi-interesting because you can taste the wheat and nuts, the same doesn't apply to the rye but the bourbon aging appears again creating an interesting flavor profile. The bad thing is that high ABV makes you miss much of the w00tstout experience - the alcohol covers a lot of things within its taste.
M: Kinda nice. It has 65 IBUs that are a little bit misunderstood within this kind of beer, and it should have lower carbonation for a Imperial Stout. At least the body is thick wich makes me rate the mouthfeel at 4.00.
O: Interesting but nothing more than that. It's my first Stone beer, and I do expect much more for the future.

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.
