Had on-tap at Aces & Ales in Las Vegas...

A - Pours almost black, with a nice creamy finger of light brown head. Not too much lacing left behind at all.

S - The smell is a little muddled, but still good. Notes of oak, bourbon, some spicy rye and alcohol are intermingled together.

T/M - The taste has just as much going on as the smell does. The taste is bittersweet chocolate forward, with hints of wheat & rye malts, with a nutty/bready finish. The pecan really comes thru in the aftertaste. Medium/heavy mouthfeel.

O - This brew is very unique to say the least. The flavors really transform as this one warms, letting the oak and pecan become more prevelant. Really good brew, glad I bought some bombers to age.

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

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick consistency. There was a small amount of tan-colored, foamy head that quickly dissipated. Pretty good lacing.

S: A nice aroma of malt, dark fruit, and chocolate.

T: Tasted of dark fruit (lots of it), some chocolate, malt, and a tiny but of coffee. A big, complex flavor (like a stout should be). Very tasty.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a prickly finish. Full-bodied.

O: Another well made beer from Stone. Strong and easy to like. Drinkable.

I had been anxiously awaiting this beer since I heard about it a few weeks ago. You see, Wil Wheaton and I are twins separated at birth--well we were separated while our real mom gestated Wil a couple of years longer than me. But I digress.

The beer is outstanding; I'm relatively new to these ultra high alcohol brews like Goose Island's BCBS, Burton Baton, Ten Fidy, etc. Wheaton and Farking have made a beer comparable to the big boys. Really I think it's just as good. Of course, as expected, it's a sipping beer.

Poured a 22oz bottle into a Color is black like a guiness and completely opaque. Very finely carbonated head that sticks around forever. Nice and sweet tasting, syrupy consistency too. There's the obvious and expected alcohol warming, and wood, leather flavors. I am not sure I taste the nuts; though it's certainly nutty--but so is Burton Baton, brewed without them.

I like how it tasted at each of the temperatures it went through during my 20-30 minute 12oz affair with this beer. All in all it deserves more than the current rating of 90. I'm sure as more reviews are added the score will better reflect its true characteristics.

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

Black onyx like brilliance the head sat quietly on top with a light brown color and frothy thickness.

Strong pecan scent covers a coconut and vanilla finish. There is a Graham cracker and chocolate malt scent deep near the back.

The flavor starts with STRONG bourbon and Oakey barrel flavor. The chocolatey flavor comes out with a malty, cracker taste. Hints of vanilla with a mix of light coconut are found near the end. I found no pecans at all despite the strong aroma.

This has all the characteristics of a fine barrel aged stout but loses the top notch seat with a little too much bourbon on the tongue. If you run across a bottle, or on tap, be sure to try it though.
