B0ttle of w00tstout enjoyed on 7/25/13

A - Solid looking pitch black with a half finger of tan head. Looks like a stout, I sure hope it drinks like one...

S - Dark chocolate, and coffee with some dark fruit in the background. Pretty standard for an Imp Stout, but it has a sweeter smell than what I am used to which is a good thing in my eyes.

T - A very sweet chocolate flavor with some vanilla and BB characteristics. Very sweet and very solid.

M - At 13% you can feel and taste the alcohol, which is good and bad. I like the presence, but it is a bit much. A sipper for sure.

O - One of the better Stone collaborations. Very solid Imperial Stout, but nothing ground breaking. Wish it used more espresso, but that is a personal preference.

A: inky black with 1/3 finger of tan foams that linger. Very nice lacing that lasts.

S: Coffee, licorice, toffee, tapioca sweet and dark tropical fruit. Imagine dark coconut, dark pineapple sort of the convergence of stout to wheat. The pecan nuttiness also is on the nose.

T: Starts with licorice/ coffee, then the nutty pecan, chocolate cream and a burnt finish. Packs heat, but, and this may sound contradictory, hides the 13% to some extent with the wheat flavor. Tastes more like a stout with wheat flavor than a wheat ale supposed to taste like a stout.

M: Low-carbonation, heavy-bodied, medium-acidity. Again, packs the bourbon heat. Dank.

O: Very complex flavor, love the strong wheat flavor mixed in with the stout. I am geeked out right now.

Bottle from Ball Square.
Pours a solid black color with a decent sized tan head that slowly dissipates leaving spotty lace in its wake. Smells of burnt and brown sugar with a heavy licorice aroma. A light chocolate and roasted coffee beans and hint of ethanol round out the aroma. The flavor is thick smokey burnt sugars with an herbal licorice anise thing going on. A moderate amount of hot fudge on top of vanilla ice cream with a hint of roast and a touch of earthy herbal hop. Faint bit of sweet whiskey rounds this out. Medium to thick body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and an oily tar like thick as molasses mouth coating. There's a whole lot going on here and most of it is good, but it doesn't seem likes it has perfectly meshed itself together yet. This is a big thick sweet stout, and that's just how I like them, but I think it needs a little more time for the flavors to coexist and then I think it could be spectacular. Too bad I could only find one bottle of this!

Enjoyed this on-tap at The Chimes in Covington, LA. Was a bit distracted by the fact that this was served in a 20 ounce imperial pint glass, but couldn't really complain.

Appearance: Jet black with a thin dark brown head that fades very slowly. Nice chunky lacing along the sides of the pint glass.

Smell: Dark roasted malts at the forefront with some coffee and chocolate, but a touch of citrus as well. Nutty aromas are present also.

Taste: Some smokiness up front and some sweet chocolate and coffee, some alcohol, nice nutty hints too from the pecan. Interestiing and complex, but good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with little carbonation and a touch of burn from the alcohol. This actually drinks too easily at 13% ABV and I drank a 20 ounce pour too quickly. Still a creamy texture but could actually use a bit more body for the style.

Overall: Complex and interesting and a great beer overall. I enjoyed this thoroughly although not quite as much as the Espresso Imperial Russian Stout.

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.
