(Served in a nonic)
A- This beer pours a inky jet black body with an oily sheet that boils to a thin ring of big bubbles and a few random bubbles gliding up the sides.
S- The sniff of banana bread with out much banana in it gives way to an earthy black malt and barrel hint in the finish.
T- The mellow thick dark wheat malt notes lead to a brassy barrel flavor in the finish. There is some rye spice and dark fruit notes that come through as it warms and an alcohol bite that lingers into a black roasted malt bitter note aftertaste.
M- The full oily mouthfeel has a gentle fizz but is cut nicely with a warming alcohol heat.
O- The thick dense mouthfeel and alcohol work well together but the malt character just can't hold its own, so it is a little much to finish a full 22 oz.

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.
