22 oz. bomber poured into a large wine glass Pours jet black with a thin deep mocha cap of foam which sticks around like the polar ice cap did 50 years ago. Drops artsy lace, solid.

Aroma is pleasantly boozy in a sense with earthy hops and some light chocolate though not overwhelmingly complex/obtrusive. A touch of barrel is there, perhaps, yet slowly revealing itself in the background as the beer warms.

Light black cherry and a bit of nut on the flavor, yet mostly a notable dose of ethanol in a well integated sense. Finishes with a bit of dark chocolate spice.

Nice feel and finish. Clean for what it is though surely packs a punch.

bottle into tulip

appearance: pitch black with 1 finger off mocha head

smell: earthy hops, oak, roasted malt, smokiness, alcohol presence, subtle hazelnut and pecan on the tail end

taste: Getting lots of roasted espresso malt and dark chocolate malts, with an herbal hoppy presence. Has elements of the Stone RIS, but with a lot more flavors as well. Beautifully complex, the tail end really lets the rye and pecan flavors come out, and it lingers for quite a while. Not really getting much bourbon, but then again only 1/4 is aged in bourbon barrels. There's a nice smokiness in the middle, and there is definitely a huge warming alcohol presence, which blends in nicely.

mouthfeel: medium carbonation, huge thick bodied feel

overall: A great collab from Stone, they never disappoint. You can definitely tastes Stone's influence on this beer, I was getting some similar flavor notes from the RIS, but there's so much more to this beer, such as pecan, rye and a lot more alcohol presence is felt. It's very nicely balanced and highly drinkable.

Poured into a tulip.

A - Appears to be an imperial stout. Nice fluffy mocha head with flecks of red. Fair retention for the ABV.

S - Roasted malts with a hint of the bourbon presence. A bit of acridity.

T - This is pure decadence. Some milk stout like creamyness, a great nutty back bill from the grains and pecans, a pleasant, not cloying sweetness. Plenty of booze but not overwhelming. Rich and chocolatey.

M - Pretty much the creamy viscous feel I want in a Imperial Stout. Well carbonated.

O - A really really great stout from Stone and Mr. Wheaton. Beats their standard RIS and variations by a mile (and I really like those beers too). It feels naughty, like having a second serving of that dessert you know you shouldn't. Playful yet complex. A big win for Stone.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

appearance: Very dark, as any respectable imp stout should be. Some ruby highlights around the edges when held to the light but mostly opaque. The mocha head and lacing is impressive given the 13%. A real looker.
smell: Smooth, fudge like, a bit of burnt roasty and hint of smoke. Smells quite good but not to knock your socks off.
taste: Quite smooth up front and much like the nose. A bit of a burn in the finish along with a touch of bitter, but pleasant imo, no complaints about alcohol presence. The alcohol is overall well hidden. This makes the taste more complex and enjoyable.
overall: very nice. Alcohol well hidden. Got another to put back and thinking this will get better.

Looks good. A nice vanilla bourbon smell -- although a touch mild. The taste is good, but it's a little spicy to me -- probably from the Rye. My palette is adjusting to all the ingredients except that one. The wheaty finish is definitely unique for a Stout. Not a preferred finish, but kudos nonetheless. Very creamy. Overall, really nice stout, that's very drinkable, with a well-managed abv. Would buy another bottle to age.
