look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Picked up out of town b/c didn't know if the local places would get it. Poured into a Boulevard snifter
A: Pours deep deep red with a very thin dark tan head that fades quickly. leaving just a ring around the edge of the glass.
S: Dark roast malts, fruits reminiscent of cherries, and quite strong on the alcohol.
T: First thing I get is the high alcohol but it's quickly replaced with sweetness and roasty flavors. The aftertaste is dry bitterness, from what I think are the pecans and hops at work. I would like to be able to have tasted the different threads of aged, unaged and different blends of same for this beer. Sometimes when the whole beer has been aged in barrels it becomes the dominant flavor, While in this beer it blends seamlessly with the other flavors, It is neither dominant nor too subltle.
M: lots of bubbles on the tongue, else, smooth and moderately thick
O: Great. When I first heard about this I was excited. I think Stone is one of the best production craft breweries around, their sheer variety of beers is impressive, from my experience they do all of them well. As a fan of TNG and more recently Wil's celebration of geek culture the hype was that much more exciting. And as a long time reader of Fark.com who better than to collaborate with than Drew Curtis.

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.
