3.84/5 rDev -5.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from a bomber into a Founders snifter
A- pours a dark dark brown bordering on black, virtually non-existant head with a slight foaming of tan bubbles, spotty lacing,
S- dark chocolate, roasted pecans, slight coffee notes but not a lot, oak and vanilla, slight rye spiciness, some dark fruits come through as well, interesting
T- roasted malt, dark strong coffee, vanilla with some woodiness from the oak, the bourbon and alcohol come on really strong after the first couple sips, kinda bruising on the palate and distracts from the other flavors, getting some dark fruits like figs in the later sips as it warms, the beer is a bit too hot and it kills the flavor profile
M- heavy body, slightly high carbonation for the style, alcohol really bruises the palate
O- I'm torn on this, I was impressed in the early goings but I feel like the beer was way too hot, the alcohol attacked my taste buds and somewhat numbed them after the first couple sips, it has potential, I think letting this one sit for awhile will do wonders

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.
