Stone / Farking / Wheaton W00tstout at Pinthouse Pizza
Draught, 10oz into a nearly 10oz goblet
A – Dark brown-black, opaque. No head, some immobile but attractive lacing curvily hanging.
S – Bourbony alcohol smell, a woodiness too. Not a sharp alcohol smell, but a smooth one. A dark sweet licorice. As it warms, I can make out a more full smell, but the components are still buried under alcohol.
T – Sweet yet not too much due to alcohol. Can’t really taste the alcohol. A tiny pinch of woodiness. Some leather comes through. It seems like the alcohol is covering tastes but not inserting itself that much. Not getting any wheat, which is a letdown. As it warms, I can taste alcohol and a tiny bit of raisin. The sweetness is pretty unchanged, just more alcohol.
M – Thick, smooth, and syrupy. Heavy bodied and a tad chewy, with a quite wet finish. Despite the alcohol abound, it mostly comes through here as a warmth on the swallow. Goopy is a good word. As it warms, the finish gets a bit less soft and drier as the alcohol comes out more.
O – This beer needs time, the alcohol is quite overbearing. Hopefully it will cellar well. Not sure if the wheat will ever show. It’s a sipper for sure and not for people new to big beers. After letting it warm, it is for sure a booze bomb that needs at least a year. I will wait 2-4 years on my bottle.
3.25, 3, 3.25, 2.75, 2.75; 3.02.

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.
