A: looks beautiful; appears to be a siren in the nude calling me to her. Dark rich coloring with a caramel two-finger head. Great lacing with legs (she knows how to use them)

S: holy shit, it smells like vomit and date rape in a glass. Nuts? A few...but in the mouth of a helpless freshman ADPi. Booze and vomit. Praying its a bad bottle.

T: Rubbing alcohol (possibly chloroform to keep with consistency). Plenty of heat not masked by the beers less than full body. Some rye spice can be picked up, but only if searching for it. Anything else has to be picked up through a field of shit flowers.

M: porter mouth on a stout...that's about it

Overall: this is a misadventure into a frat party with no sense of self control. An udder mess, sloppy, hits some notes right; but, too much of this and you will surely end up waking up on a pinball table, ass gaping and mouth filled with an all too familiar wretched taste. Garbage! (Bad bottle?)

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours black with a half finger of dark tan head. Thick trials of lacing above the beer.

Hazelnut/pecans, chocolate, roast, alcohol, almost a mint aroma as well

Light sweet roasted malts, chocolate, nuts, light brown sugar

Nice imperial stout but nothing amazing. Don't get anything from the 1/4 barrel aging. I think it's very drinkable and not hot fresh at 13%

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.

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.

A: into a stout flute glass, pitch black body with a slim head of tan foam

S: roasted malts, smoked pecans, bittersweet dark herbs and earth

T: dry bittersweet dark chocolate and sweet chewy pecans, spicy rye heat, roasted malts and char, hints of herbs, anise, and vanilla; oak wood notes and vapors of whisky

M: smooth, drying, mellow bittering, slight coating, finished light and airy

O: a sublime concoction. Get your hands on one while you can.

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.
