A- dark earthen color, black as night. Tan/ coffee head with some honest retention. At the edge some light gives it a cola appearance.
N- coffee and booze upfront and dominating, but dig a little deeper....
Vanilla, pecan, caramel, fudge, raisins, cigar box.
T- a lot of the nose comes through on the taste. Additional flavors of chocolate, earth, oak, wheat bread, fine tobacco, and leather.
F- lighter than other 13% yet still rich body feel. The body really is an impressive achievement given the other qualities of this complex beer. Im banking the wheat helpped the chemistry on that.
This WILL get better with age. Already better than fresh off release. Hope you saved a bottle, can't wait to open mine in a couple years
Serving type: on-tap

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.
