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.
