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.

22oz bottle into snifter. Bottled 7/16/13.
A: Pours near black with a rather thin dark brown head that faded into a faint collar.
S: Smooth and decadent smelling with notes of rich chocolate, mild bourbon barrel, and spicy rye. Not boozy or overbearing in the least.
T: Mellow notes of bourbon barrel, toasted and creamy marshmallow, and a slight nuttiness which, me knowing its pecans, does kinda remind me of sweet pecan pie. Caramel, butterscotch, and molasses are sweet up front, and the finish is full of brown sugar, spicy rye, toast, chocolate syrup, and oak. Rich chocolate and spice linger long after the swallow.
M: Definitely the best part of this beer. I'm starting to notice that Stone's stouts are extremely soft, thick, fluffy, smooth, full and drinkable. Carbonation is soft and velvety; body is thick and fluffy and the mouthfeel is chewy, light and airy. Drinks very well, no trace of booze.
O: Drinks very well, could maybe even be smoother with age. Great flavor, exceptional mouthfeel. Well done.

APPEARANCE: Pours a romantic dark chocolate. Very opaque but not quite a jet black, still some nice brown hues in there. Very nice caramel colored head that had very nice retention.
AROMA: Smells like pecan pie that has been soaked in bourbon. Which equals deliciousness. Getting some sweetness maybe molasses and raisins. Little faint vanilla and for sure pick up the booziness from the bourbon barrel.
TASTE: Very flamboyant, layers upon layers. Right off the bat getting that nice barrel flavor. Slight spiciness that balances well with the sweetness of the chocolate and pecan. As it warmed a bit I pull out tobacco and the alcohol began to show its head.
MOUTHFEEL: medium bodied and medium carbonation. Slightly oily perhaps from the pecans. Not a super thick beer but surprisingly creamy.
OVERALL: Super solid stout from Stone. Was impressed all around. I am curious to see how this ages. Very easily drinking high ABV stout.
RATING: 4.3/5 Zombie Heads!
