4.06/5  rDev -0.2%

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.

4.03/5  rDev -1%

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.

Pours black, opaque , light brown two finger head, decent lace and retention. Aroma is roasty, plenty chocolate, nutty too, with a mild bourbony oak note and a bit of spiciness. Bit more barrel in the taste, impressive for 1/4 aged. Nutty, roasty, chocolaty, hints of alcohol, but its masked really well of 13%. Drinks pretty good. Full bodied, but not syrupy. In the end, quite nice and enjoyable. I have a few bottles put away, so looking forward to revisiting down the line.

A: Pours a dark black with a light khaki head. Head retention is good with a thick rim around the glass 10 minutes later. Chunks of spotted lacing present.

S: Nutty, vanilla, loads of malt, some alcohol present.

T: Sweet up front - vanilla, sweet malt. Then on the back end are pecans which enhance the sweetness on the front and pleasant alcohol burn considering the high ABV for this brew.

M: Thick, real thick. Creamy. Heavy.

O: Great brew and nice flavor combination that I don't think I've had before.

4.78/5  rDev +17.4%

A - poured with a viscous thick black crude oil-ish body, took some vigor to get a one finger loose head that quickly dissipated.

S - first is alcohol, followed by a nutty sweetness, can get hints of the pecan, nice vanilla and whiskey notes come through as we'll. smells very intense and delicious.

T - taste is ridiculously intense. Wall of malt, with some subtle notes of chocolate, whiskey, vanilla bean, and nuttiness peaking through. Finishes abruptly with a heavy alcohol presence and wall of hop bitterness. Bitterness lingers with the malt character as well long after, reminiscent of their RIS but kicked up a few notches with the alcohol and hops.

M - feels thick, with light carbonation. Alcohol is very much present in the finish.

O - this is great. I think it's very similar to RIS but more intense, I'm not sure if i can really distinguish the wheat and the pecans are more present in the nose. I love stone's big beers, they have a very unique character to them, they are really just killing it. This is enjoyable, and will be enjoying them while they are available.
