Very good Imperial stout. The pecans go undetectable but it meets the bar along with similar BA imperial stouts. Though, nothing to write home about.

L- Pours pitch black with a dark tan head that recedes into a ring around the surface of the beer and has fair retention.

S- Bourbon is front and center of the aroma of this beer. Smells of wood, vanilla, and alcohol are followed by coffee, roasted malt and chocolate.

T- Following the aroma, the flavor of this beer is lead by bourbon characters of wood and vanilla. Tastes of coffee, caramel, and roasted malt come next with warming alcohol on the finish.

F- Low carbonation and thick, silky body that lingers on the palate.

O- Overall, this is a great BBA stout that balances the barrel character and base beer brilliantly.

A solid black color . Medium light carbonation with a slightly creamy , above average body .
Aroma is espresso, chocolate, roasted pecan as well as roasted malt .
Taste was very similar to aroma. The roasted pecan was very noticeable and was where oddly I felt a little acidic softness came from . Espresso, dark chocolate, as well as roasted malts all showed up fairly equally .
Overall it was a very decent beer which bordered on being a dessert beer but stayed away from being to sweet.

2018 vintage
12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a deep black color with a razor thin foamy khaki head that quickly reduces to a ring around the glass

S- chocolate, caramel & light espresso notes up front, with undertones of toasted nuts, light bourbon barrel an marshmallow

T- sweet and malty up front with notes of molasses, brown sugar, caramel & toffee, followed by chocolate and pecan. The finish brings out more chocolate notes, with just a trace of bourbon on the linger

M- thick body with moderate carbonation leads to a syrupy mouthfeel that continues into a chewy finish, a hint of alcohol warmth at the end

O- nice chocolaty notes with a thick and creamy mouthfeel

A very nice stout with some interesting flavor mixtures. Nice dark brown, almost black color with some tan head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of maple, nuts, bourbon, roast coffee and malt. Tastes similarly, along with vanilla creaminess and caramel. Smooth, mild, slightly creamy mouthfeel. Good carbonation. Higher ABV is actually quite well-hidden.

The first beer i can ever remember liking, Thanks to Horseheadshophead. I still absolutely adore this beer. Sweet, with a little bourbon burn, some rye spiciness, and vanilla all the way down. And I do love vanilla, I absolutely love this beer with all my heart.

Stone Wootstout - 11.5% ABV - 45 IBUs.
Date: 06/28/18, sampled on 09/08/18.
Appearance: Almost a total blackout, save for some slight chestnut brown color around the edges with a finger and a half of tan head.
Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate, and a decent amount of bourbon for only being 25% aged. There is also some actual nuttiness that comes through. In short, it smells like a less sweet version of a bourbon ball.
Taste: The first thing I notice is how smooth and creamy the texture is. The second sip reveals assorted malt varieties ranging from black coffee to chocolate and some alcohol heat that is felt, not tasted. The bourbon is here, but it is more subtile and mingles in with the other flavors more than a 100% aged beer. The pecan nuttiness is apparent on the taste as well and also contributes a slight oiliness. As it warms, Wootstout begins to turn into more of a dessert beer as more chocolate, sugary notes, and bourbon sweetness come out.
Biased comments: This is a very nice and enjoyable beer, and it mimics derby pie very successfully. However, due to the sweetness that emerges, I could easily share a 12oz bottle.

Really loving this one right now.
New to beer as a cocktail drinker for years. Can’t wait to see what the W00tstout collaboration does in 2019.
9/19/2018 Update. I have been tracking W00tstout on the Stone website and buying some for the winter. Never done anything like this before. I have about 150 bottles at home that I got in north North and Central Alabama. FYI there is a keg of the 2018/11.5 ABV in Huntsville as of Sept 18th 2018 (See Untapped, Das Stahl Bierhaus) that they found or just brought out. Before that it has been sold out around here for the last several weeks. The last place that had any draft was "Wish You Were Beer" at campus 805 and that was what they call the W00tstout 4.0 I think because it was 13% ABV. That ran out about three weeks ago. What I started out to post about before I got sidetracked is, of the bottles I have, occasionally I open one that has a metallic taste. I always tried to put purchases that were made cold into the fridge the same day. I bought many six packs cold and warm, and two cases warm over the last three months and I did not track every bottle. I did buy a chiller fridge even though they are high ABV. I got paranoid about them cellaring. I'm just wondering if the ones I open that have the metallic taste initially, (it goes away either in mind or with time in the tulip glass), is due to having been bought cold and allowed to get warm. Never really warm. All cold purchases were brought home in a cooler bag. I'm really OK about the occaisional bottle with an initial metallic taste but I think about if Im trying to introduce one of my brothers or firends to the nectar of the Gods, and the metallic taste is their first impression. Clearly not the end of the world. Anyway I am so enjoying this beer! Trying to branch out. Trying lots of different beers, so suprised I like beer after giving up on it years ago.
Update: Sorry just learning. This is not an appropriate post for Rating thread .
10/08/2018 Update. So can't find any better way to post so here goes:
#W00THUNT. #W00TSTOUT. This information is from the Stone brewing website Oct. 8th.
These are not verified but I'm planning next week's W00thunt.
These are all draft. No place still has bottles that I have found in North AL though there may still be some in Birmingham.
