3.8/5  rDev -6.9%

Poured from the artisan 1 pt, 6 fl. oz. bottle.

First off - excited just to have the 2013 collabo-brew. Suggested cellar temp for aging on the bottle. Tempting, but I wanted to try right away. I believe aging this stout would make this brew better than it already is.

Appearance: Oil. Pours on the thick side, almost pure black with a bit of brown mixed in (similar to the color of oil coming out of your oil pan.

Aroma: Nutty for sure. Dare I say you can actually smell the pecans. Followed by a bit of chocolate/mocha-coffee scent.

Taste: Right away, briefly taste the wheat malts (very sweet) and then the pecans, which are carried throughout the taste. Next, the Rye comes through and overtakes the wheat, giving a smoked, oaky flavor along with the mocha-coffee taste and the pecans. Boozey flavor underlying all of it, which can distract. However, at 13% and having a quarter of it aged in oak barrel stouts, the flavor is appreciated.

Mouthfeel: When I have a stout, I'm expecting a thick, almost creamy, mouthfeel. Surprisingly, the mouthfeel is not as thick as expected and is a bit dry. I THINK I like it?

Overall: Get this beer. In fact, get two of them - try one now, and try the other in at least a year. WIth some aging and letting those malts settle in, I think the beer would become smoother and even more delicious. Taste was very good and pecans added a new "nuttiness" that is a bit sweeter than usual. Coffee and mocha flavor come through well and the more I think about it, the more I appreciate the dry finish.

Bottoms up.

w00t. w00t. or something

Pour to Portsmouth glass. Body is just about black with just a bit of brown highlights, dark tan head.

Scent brings sweet malts of caramel, chocolate, molasses, definite pecans, just a bit oak and some alcohol. Dessert-like.

Taste brings dark caramel, roast, nuts, some chocolate, some brown sugar, bready (wheat) tones. Bourbon and oak come through with warmth along with quite alot of hot alcohol. Quite rich, a sipper.

For the style and ABV, pretty thin and high carbonation. Not much of a bother but quite boozy to boot.

The pecans are a nice touch, not bad otherwise but feels kinda messy, and especially boozy as it warms, splitting this was still quite a trek. I would've liked to see more overall stoutiness to it.

This is a wonderful stout. So good, it's farking swheat. Had to throw that in there.

The pecan, wheat and rye are balanced well. Bourbon kicks in at the end. The 13% alcohol is hidden well. I've stashed two bottles away for the cellar; can't wait until this beer gets older.

3.89/5  rDev -4.7%

22oz bomber poured into a St Bernardus snifter
bottle dated 6/25/13

A: pitch black. one finger tan colored head slowly dissipates, leaving a bit of lacing.

S: booze, roasted chocolate, some dark fruit.

T: dark chocolate and a sweet nutty taste (probably the pecans) up front, dark fruit (mostly plum) in the middle. a mix of booze, bourbon-y vanilla, and rye spiciness at the end. bourbon flavors are noticeable but muted and by no means overwhelming. the 13% ABV is noticeable but not in an unpleasant way, the alcohol warmth kind of sneaks up on you.

M: silky, almost creamy like a milk stout. light carbonation.

O: a pretty good beer. the ABV is hidden pretty well, only really noticeable in complement with the bourbon/vanilla flavors. I’ll probably have another one in the next couple weeks and then age one until around Christmas time.

Big, bold and heavy. There's some good things going on in this beer, but know when you open that 750ml bottle, you're in for quite potentially a labored drinking session if you are by yourself. The smell and taste are very good but sort of distant and indistinct. Very sweet smell, with lots of chocolate and the taste follows with some smoke, some bourbon, a touch of caraway and rye, but all the flavors seem kind of blurred together. The feel is heavy, thick, and syrupy and the boozy warmth comes through a little bit too much. It makes drinking more than a small glass a bit of a chore which is not a good thing.

Consumed on July 19th, 2013. Thanks to Matt and Sarah Luke for the bottle.

Beer pours a very very dark brown... might as well just call it black and get it over with. Slight brown highlights when held to light. One finger off-white head. Slightly sticky foam but doesn't cling to the sides long.

Aroma is icky: wet pennies and rubbing alcohol.

Flavor is warm with alcohol. The label promises Bourbon barrel and pecan ingredients; they are MIA on my palate. I'm just getting chocolate, darkly roasted malt and moderate bitterness.

Thick, smooth, velvety mouthfeel. The best aspect of this beer!

Drinkable enough, but aging might do this one some good.

4.16/5  rDev +2%

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.
