look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Pitch black, with one of the deepest tan colored heads I have seen. Fairly thick to pour, but not the thickest I have experienced.

Chocolate, coffee, and a nutty aroma are the main things I can detect.

Quite a bit going on here. Chocolate, coffee, can taste a bit of the pecans and rye. There is a bit of sweetness that I am guessing is bourbon, and finishes with a lingering hop bitterness. Also, there is a good bit of alcohol warming, the only real hint of the high alcohol content.

The feel is a bit thin for such a big beer, I expected a bit more.

Amazingly drinkable considering the ABV. Has a nice blend of flavors, nothing dominates, and they complement each other well. Very much worth trying, one of the most drinkable big beers I have had.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 06/25/13.

A: Pours pitch black with a large and very dense medium brown head. Head lightens up and turns very fluffy, very quickly. Retention is quite good after the head fades away. Minimal spotty lacing.

S: Lots of chocolate and some anise from the roasted malt. Don't really get any pecans but there is a vague sort of nuttiness to it. Spicy rye is notable but not picking up much wheat in the aroma. Sharp alcohol.

T: There's the pecans. Lots of pecans up front, mixing with chocolate. Caramel sweetness joins it (likely from the bourbon). Rye kicks in with quite a bit of spice and continues all the way to the very end. Not really getting much wheat in this, just some graininess in the finish. Tingling alcohol sting on the back end with some oaky vanilla and a little char.

M: Higher carbonation than you'd expect from a 13% stout. Kinda tingly. High ABV makes it extra tingly. Interesting and different. Makes it feel not quite so heavy (like you'd expect a 13% stout to be).

O: Unique stout. Quite spicy, much spicier than most pure rye beers in fact. Borderline chile pepper spice in fact. Interesting. Not super boozy but has a surprising alcohol sting. Hard to describe the difference between the two terms but it's "different". Overall quite flavorful, strong flavors and good complexity. A little harsh but I enjoyed it.

Stone Brewing Co. - Stone / Farking / Wheaton W00tstout, poured into a wine goblet.

Look - Pours a thicker oily black-brown with an inch sized off white mocha head. Lots of lacing.

Smell - Aroma is quite unique, you can smell the wheat along with sweet pecans and the obvious overlay of coffee and cocoa. Otherwise a little faint on the nose.

Taste - Carbonated bite, then sweet pecan and chocolate. After this a warm throat hit from bourbon barrel aging. Rye is present at the end, so much going on here.

Mouthfeel - Rests roasted pecan and chocolate. Slightly warming but not bourbon barrel overload like some brews. Surprisingly not overly boozy for 13%, but it's a creeper!

Overall - Very well done and very unique, this was truly a treat and a new experience worth having. Not really comparable to others of the style because it was all over the map going in several different directions at once in the taste department, maybe too many collaborators? I would not personally purchase this again but I am glad I tried it.

Bottle from Nick's of Clinton in Waldorf, MD for $8.99.

The beer is dark brown and viscous, sporting a thin, oily, beige head. The aroma brings oak, light roast, bourbon. Pecans are hard to discern in either the flavor or the aroma. More of a texture than a feature it would seem. Nice bready character from the addition of rye and wheat. Some bourbon heat, but overall, a really mild and easy sipping brew considering the 13% abv. Recommended.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottled 7/16/13.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streakss of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, cookie dough, and slight bourbon and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet cocoa and alcohol flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice variety of aromas but the taste is pretty alcohol forward at this time.
