4.16/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: dark black with quickly dissipating head leaving very little if any lacing on the glass

S: sweet like molasses and chocolate with a little booze in the background and earthy/nutty tones

T: very complex brew that comes together very well. chocolate, molasses, fig and bourbon up front that falls to the back of the tongue where you pick up the faint pecan/nutty taste and the bourbon becomes more noticeable

M: very well balanced here. thick enough to layer the palate but carbonated enough to not feel "sticky" and overly viscous.

O: My local drinking hole had "Christmas in July" with several stouts lined up. Personally, I enjoyed this most with its complex flavor and enjoyable mouth feel.

Serving type: on-tap

4.31/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Black with minimal head retention and almost no lacing.

S: I got a little bit of the pecan, mocha chocolate, and not much heat considering the ABV.

T: Definitely taste the wheat, which is integrated well with the nutty, chocolate roasted malts. A little rye on the finish, and not too boozy.

M: Medium to low carbonation, lasting finish, and just a little syrupy.

O: Another winner from Stone. Great combination of flavors and definitely smooth for 13%. I'll be making a trip back to my local beer shop to grab more before they're gone.

[tulip glass]

I: I heard a lot about this upcoming collaboration so my interest has been up. What I like about Stone collabs is that they're eccentric/abstract. With this new beer promising pecans, wheat, & rye, with one quarter aged in bourbon barrels I'm salivating at just the thought of tasting this seductress.

B: [13% ABV 1 Pint. 6 FL. OZ. Bottled On. date markings became unreadable] Stone has always been on the top in terms of bottle presentation and with this new collab, they present 3 different collectable labels. I made sure to grab the most extravagant and rare (the comic looking one). This bottle is already worthy of the shelf based on it's presentation alone. Lets break her open.

A: A black body devoid of transparency with a dark brown rim, a tight mocha head (fast dissipation), and little to no lacing.

S:Smells delicious! Chocolate, some bourbon, sweet malt, and faint sense of wheat(if all).

T: Bold roasted chocolate and bourbon up front that lingers, sweet malt, wheat, rye in mid sip and AT, pecan is detectable, slight caramel, fig, raisin, and nutty (from the pecans).

M: Slick/syrupy finish, moderate carbonation, full bodied, and boozy alcohol (bold and can be intrusive)

O: Tasty beer, but it's a little too bold and unbalanced. With this in mind, aging the beer is advised. That said, it was interesting and I could detect most of the ingredients, but as some big dark beers are, need to be aged. So I'll see about doing a follow up, later down the road. I wouldn't recommend to everyone and would advise one to age and enjoy in the cold.

4.04/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Jet black. One finger espresso head. Moderate retention (for the abv). Above average lacing.

S: Ethanol, malt, mashtun. Lots of toffee notes. Nutty amaretto notes as it warms.

T: Boozy sweetness up front cut w/ the rye spiciness. Fruity, peppery mid palate. Artificial cherry and orange zest. Blast of praline sweetness follows on the finish. Aftertaste is spicy and medicinal. The alcohol warmth rears its head in the finish.

M: Fairly carbonated upfront. However, this can't save the malt monstrosity. Finishes slick and syrupy.

O: Great dessert beer. Love the concept. Would like to see pecans used a bit more often with stouts.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

Dark walnut brown body, with a fleeting head off the pour, that falls fairly quickly. Head is a nice chestnut brown but has a slight reddish tinge to it which is hard to examine since it doesn't stick around much. Fairly straightforward in looks and appearance. Has some clarity from below.

Nose has hints of cherry cordial warmth, and cheap booze. Some light brown sugar and maraschino artificial cherry seems to be just jumping out of this. Very unique I'll say but not my most favorite aroma.

Palate comes with a strangely neutral tone. What's most evident though is the mouthfeel which is the best part of the beer. Extremely creamy and rich but with a controlled thickness that really coats, nearly feels like clotted cream. Palate brings though strangely only mild classic stout flavors of roasted malts, and mild sensing dark chocolate. Warmth brings much of the creamy character but sweetness isn't predominant which doesn't bring up anything such as vanilla or chocolate. Controlled boozy character is well hidden though. Really wish those cherry tones would come through in the taste somehow.

Overall it's an interesting take, but I am not really drawn to this, probably cause when it comes to Stone I am not a big on their stouts to begin with. There's some neat character to this but it just doesn't wow me. That's not a bad thing though, it's still enjoyable to drink and I definitely prefer it to their regular Russian Imperial.
