Ebony with a 1/2" tan head, which slowly fades. Light lacing.

Aroma is nutty, with notes of chocolate, molasses, coffee, rye.

Taste is njuts, chocolate, molasses, coffee,m oak, vanilla, a rye spiciness.

Full body, thick & oily, light carbonation. Semisweet finish.

Outstanding Imperial Stout. I expect nothing less from Stone.

This w00tstout creation is Farking great! I grab it whenever I see it. Sometimes at the 'Stone Brewing' in Escondido location, as I make it out often during my annual West Coast beer pilgrimages. It is sweet as hell (not cloying) so I don't even know how this one works for me. But it does. Pecans and Wheat are involved, but I guess that I just love a dark, burnt, toasted and roasted RIS. I cellar the stuff and don't drink it much after purchase. I keep many bottles going back five or more years now. I like drinking it warm. They are great! My wife is a red wine drinker and just loves this beer too. It must be the sweetness.

Grabbed bottle at Thirsty Pug.
Typical dense black appearance with hints of ruby red and dark mahogany to light.
Rich fruity malty nose; winey dark fruit hints of nuts.
Taste mirrors but has an unpleasant bitter aftertaste.
Feel is a nice modest smoothness, but alcohol intrudes and adds a burn.
Overall, ok but not anything I’d try again.

Bottled 6/9/21

This is a weird concept for a beer, which makes me surprised that it's from Stone. A blended imperial stout with pecans, wheat, and rye. It's something that sounds like it doesn't make sense, yet something I'm eager to try. I love pecans in any capacity, so I'm wondering how well they'll come through in an imperial stout. Let's find out

Pours mostly pitch black with 2 fingers of tan head that fades to a thin cap and leaves minimal lacing

The pecan is definitely there in the nose, but it's very soft, almost like a raw pecan as opposed to the toasted character I expected. I'm picking up on aromas of milk chocolate, raw pecan, raisin, earthy bourbon, rye spice, and dark caramel malt

Yeah, the toasted pecan vibe I was expecting comes across much more in the taste, offering an interesting bitterness on the finish. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting spicy rye, milk chocolate, acidic coffee, burnt oak, and light bourbon. The swallow brings notes of spicy rye, astringent toasted pecan, cocoa powder, earthy bourbon, roasty coffee, and burnt oak

A medium full body pairs with gentle tingling carbonation, resulting in a surprisingly thin beer. Finishes roasty and a bit bitter

This one is an oddball, but it's pretty good for what it is. Not exactly what I hoped for with a pecan beer, but a fun drink

Look: Poured looking like strong black coffee wi a nice tan head that melted to a 3/16" ring around the glass. Nice lace not the sides with cuffs of foam that side slowly downward to join with the ring.
Smell and Taste: Bourbon and Pecans with note of coffee thrown in.
Feel: A very refreshing dryness to this semisweet Stout.
Overall: This Stout rocks. All boxes have been checked. Time to find some more.

Bottled 6/23/2017 A good year for this beer, last i had this was 2019 and it was....different. im excited for this.
2017 Stone Farking Wheaton WootStøut.

Imperial Stout with Pecans, Wheat, Flaked Rye and one quarter aged in Bourbon Barrels. 13% ABV .
Stored in a temperature controlled private cellar till i was gifted it a few weeks ago.

Nose is all i love about Imperial Stouts. Fuck me. Its Dark Chocolate,Caramel, Vanilla, Brown Sugar, Sweetness from what I assume is Bourbon Barrel.

Looks damned Great. Pours like oil,Thick and creamy. Settles nice into the glass like a still oil spill with a deep brown ring of head.

Taste marches well behind nose. Chocolate ,Vanilla,Tobacco, Little bit of Rye Spice, Coffee, some Nuttiness, Dark Malts . Everything i love in a Stout.

Feel is a dream. Not too thin not too chewy. Taskes a while to go away in the mouth like a stranger you aren't sure you want to leave yet. I say near perfect .
4.75/ 5 all day. This is when a great year for this one.

I like this beer. The pecan brings a really pleasing nut flavor to a bit heavy stout that holds rich dark roast. Dark fruit it light. Some coffee and chocolate. This is still quite fresh and sharp, but not too much to reduce the pleasure. Alcohol flavor apparent and kinda' hard to avoid at 11+%.
Black as night with dark head which dissipates fairly quickly to a ring and some bubbles.
Mouth feel is rich and soft and mostly smooth and not quite a big as some (could be the alcohol).

w00tstout has a medium, beige head, and a very dark brown appearance, with no lacing. The aroma is of dark-roasted malts (brown bread crust) and bourbon barrels. The flavor is the same, with lots of sweetness, but no bitterness. w00tstout has a medium body, and a semi-sweet finish.

It poured a thin beige head that was slow to dissipate from a 12 oz. bottle dated 06/09/21. After that, there was no lacing or ring to speak of. Brewed with pecans, wheat and rye, there was a nut taste with an equal part 11.5% booze. The nose was the same.
The mouthfeel was medium-thin, finishing with pecan notes and a warming trend.

Bought this one on a whim at a local liquor store that stocks some better brews. I’m not a huge fan on imperial stouts because they are usually a little too boozy for me. However this one is one of the better imperials I’ve had. It masks its high alcohol content well but not entirely.

It pours a deep brown, but not quite pure black. When tipped in a glass the edges are warm and lean reddish orange through the thin margins. The swirl is thicker and normal for an imperial.

The smell leans woody and nutty like pecans but not overwhelming. It definitely lets you know that it has high alcohol content on the nose.

A quick sip on the front would never reveal its high alcohol content and tastes mild of tannins and slightly spicey. Not sure I get the chocolate, bourbon, or other favors that other reviewers gave. It is pleasant and not overwhelming

On the back it tastes much more of the alcohol it contains but also takes on more of the coffee, wood, and spice flavor.

Overall, you’d never know it contains such high alcohol content but it still does justice to the imperial class of beer. The flavors could be slightly more present, however it is MUCH more drinkable than most so the trade off is well received by me.

2021 Edition Bottle poured into a Stone W00tstout snifter

A: Pours basically pitch black with a frothy ginger root tan head that settles to a light layer and leaves a little nice lacing.

S: Roasty, chocolate and a touch of coffee, peppery spice, bourbon, dark sugar, vanilla, earthy, subtle toasty nutty side, faintly herbal, and a hint of oak.

T: Roasted malt, milk chocolate, peppery spice, bourbon, maple, brown sugar, toffee, vanilla, earthy, underlying toasty nuttiness from the pecans, subtle herbal notes, faint oak, and a hint dark fruit that comes off as what I can only describe as cherry Coke.

M: Full body, moderately lively carbonation, alcohol warmth is noticeable but not harsh or unpleasant.

O: Somehow, despite drinking some basically every year since its debut, I haven't logged this one. Time to fix that!
It's easy to see why this became a fan favorite. Bold flavors, decadent, yet well balanced, never becoming too overly rich. This one also ages beautifully when given a little cellar time. Definitely gonna add some notes the next time I crack a vintage bottle.
