LOVE this beer! It's thick and syrupy consistency, like 3 year old motor oil. But the smell is chocolaty, and with juuust the right hint of bourbon to give it an extra zing.. a hint of interest without dominating the flavor. It just jumped up to be of my favorite stouts ever (just tried it for the first time last night).

this would make an excellent cellar beer. I need moar!

Bottled 6/23/17; drank 7/25/17 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A violent pour yielded a huge, noisy tan head; decent lace.

Almond, raspberry & milk chocolate notes in the nose.

Creamy, medium thick mouthfeel.

Cream, milk chocolate & pecon flavors up front; mild raspberry notes on the finish.

Mild oak notes emerged as this warmed. No booze heat.

A lot going on here; interesting, but this doesn't really coalesce into a coherent flavor I could enjoy. Interesting though...

This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a nice looking black color with a one finger white to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a good minute before leaving some nice looking foamy lacing trying to stick to the sides of the glass. The smell had a wheaty/grainy like aroma over top of a light vanilla/chocolate coating some nuts here and there. The taste took all of those previously mentioned flavors and combined to enrich a nice subtle sweet nutty flavoring encapsulating my taste buds. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with not much of a sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed to be fairly smooth and velvety as just seemed to round out all of the flavors. Overall, pretty good Imperial stout that I would have again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Look: Pours black with a thin, dark-brown head that quickly dissipates. Limited visible carbonation and thick alcohol legs on the sides of the glass.

Smell: Very, very sweet but not cloying. Pecan, wood (from the barrel), brown sugar, and very mild alcohol esters all evident.

Taste: Follows the nose but even more so. Sweet pecans and malt form the first notes with mild black coffee, molasses, and plum following. Thick but not syrupy in the mouth that finishes much crisper than many other stouts like it.

So glad I finally managed to grab this beer, for $10 pint an absolutely excellent value for an absolutely excellent beer.

This is a thick farking stout. That is what I expected and exactly what I got.

It's the usual oil can black I expect. The aroma is sweet and pretty. The taste is big and sweet. The aftertaste is more of a case about alcoholism than anything. Huge.

I will stop at the stop to look for more. W00t.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look- It's very dark in space! No head. Alcohol slides around rim of the glass. Scary and inviting.
Smell- bourbon, carmel, light molasses, alcohol, no noticeable roast in the smell to me. No vanilla or pecan. Smells clean though nothing funky or off putting.
Taste- bourbon up front with the alcohol present but not hot. Surprising as it is the 2017 so it is fresh out of the barrel. I don't taste any nuttiness but I rarely do in beers even when they are added. I'd like to taste more but I think I would need to age it a bit. Maybe I'll pick up another.
Mouthfeel- soft on the pallet with little carbonation. It avoids being syrupy and is easy drinking for a new beer with a 13% ABV.
Overall- I love Stone Brewing and Will Wheaton. I will go back to again for one to age and when the next of the series comes out. Brew on Wil!!

Pours a pitch black with minimal tan head. Smells of pecans, bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, and mild coffee. Flavor follows the nose almost exactly with very prominent pecan pie. Medium-high body with low carbonation. Overall it's an absolutely incredible barrel aged stout. I would put it up there with some of the best I've had.

Perfectly opaque with a teensy tiny head the colour of wet sand.

Flavors are sweet and alcoholic and has some lingering cherries. It's very smooth and not harsh at all.

Very good.

Pours black. Dense, short brown head fades to a ring.

Smells caramel and roast malt, dark fruit, light oak, bourbon and molasses hint.

Tastes roast malt, dark chocolate, light dark fruit and bourbon. Followed by light oak, dark fruit and molasses. Finish is dry with roast linger and light earthy bitterness. Full body and creamy medium carbonation.

Glossy black body under a massive light brown head that pulled back to only slight remnants of lacing. Nose is massive sweet molasses coupled with a slight weird funk, somewhere between vegetable thing and aging but not quite sour dairy products. Like when you see the milk expires on the day you smell it, and your imagination infers something more meat than what really exists. Finally, a solid alcohol signature appears. Taste thankfully does not identically match the nose. For instance, that sweet molasses is very much there but without the odd baggage. What creeps in is slightly nutty, and a definite heat. Body is pretty thick and finishes super dry with only a bit of sweetness left on the tongue.
