Bottle thanks to Pat. Shared at tasting. Reviewed from notes.
Chocloate brown with a modest cappucino head that retreats stealthily to a raised collar and film.
Plenty of dark fruits with big stewed plums and rum 'n' raisin leavened by the slightly green pecan character.
Taste throws some harsh ashy tar in to the mix, while less of the pecan comes through. Full bodied, becoming a tad trying and sickly over the course, not helped by a pretty hot finish.
Pecan is an intelligent addition and the best element of this beer. Otherwise it's not a terrific base RIS, and drinkability isn't great. Splitting a bomber three ways was more than enough.

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.
