Pours opaque dark brown, thin light brown head settles quickly leaving a sheet of delicate lace for the first couple of inches. Smell: vinous, dark chocolate, plum. Taste: dark chocolate, boozy plum and raisin, soft grain and mild spiciness, earthy and bourbon notes grow in the finish. Expected it to be syrupy from the pour, but is more towards creamy. Good... as it warms it takes on more of a rich desserty aspect you might expect from the description.

Disclaimer - I have had many of these since 2013. This review is based on drinking a cellared 2013 consumed in March 2017. Poured from fridge temp to a W00tStout OG glass. Pours jet black with almost no carbonation. Beautiful beer. Notes of licorice and chocolate on the nose. The barrel comes through, but it's not dominant, owing to the small percentage actually aged in barrels. I am getting some nutty notes, and some roasted vanilla. Taste follows the nose, but with slightly bitter aftertaste. I pick up coffee grounds on the back end. Initially, there is an immense chocolate taste. Some marshmallow is coming through. Thick and creamy - amazing mouthfeel. Overall, a splendid beer that has aged beautifully. I will have another next year to see how it progresses.

It's been awhile since I reviewed a beer, but here we go!

Poured from a bomber into a tulip.

A- Midnight black with mocha head that fades quickly.
Leaves minimal lacing, if any at all.

S- Right off the bat I get chocolate, followed by dark fruit,
slight bourbon, and alcohol.

T- very complex layers of flavor, but I pick up dark chocolate,
Caramel, vanilla, bourbon, tobacco, molasses, a hint of rye and
Alcohol.

M- This beer is thick and heavy thanks to the wheat malt addition.
It feels nice at first as far as carbonation, but then the alcohol burn
kicks in and forces a gulp. As the beer warms, the alcohol presence
Becomes more dominant.

O- This is a great brew, unique within the imperial stout genre.
The aroma is great, the tastes are great and complex, but the mouthfeel
Is hurt due to the alcohol burn. I recommend enjoying this at a serving temp
around 50 degrees. Cheers!

Tan head. Color is black. Lace left.

Flavors of roasted malts as chocolate. Too roasted for me. Vanilla, oak, and a minimal amount of bourbon. A bit of heat shows in the end with a touch of rye. Can't find the pecans.

Mouthfeel: roasted and dry. Fuller bodied.

Overall, solid, but it would have been cool to have more barrel aging.

The ultimate geek and beer geek's beer, a collab with Stone Koch and Wil Wheaton, and called W00t! Great name, although i don't know a lot about Drew, sorry. Bottled 6/25/13.

Pours into my Portsmouth tulip with a darker colored mocha like small fizzy slight creamy head fades at a med to quicker rate, not bad for a 13% beer though, nice ring of lacing though and nice long legs, all that over a pitch black super thick dark beer.

Nose is pretty strong for a super big stout. Tons of dark malts of course, a bit of a roasty aroma and some charred malt and a little coffee from the roast, then into the waves of super dark chocolate, lots of baker's chocolate and a bit of a creamy dark melted chocolate, a bit of caramel and a fluffy nougat, a bit of a toasted pecan like nutty aroma, a little brown sugar encrusted pecan. Then the booze kicks in, a definite boozy aroma with big malts to back it up, but a clean booze and not too dominant. Faint hints of a vanilla barrel round it off.

Comes on sweet at first, loads and loads of big dark malts wash over the tongue and kinda sit there with a big weight, my tongue feels suspended in the middle of the thick viscosity beer. Dark malts are the key item here, a bit of a black malt, with some roasted malt, a light char but not much as the dark malts were done pretty well to not be too tannic and burnt. Then super dark chocolate, bitter chocolate and lots of baker's chocolate, a little creamy choc too but not a ton, a little cookie like with some creamy oatmeal, hint of caramel, fluffy nougat, and a nice toasty brown sugar encrusted pecan like, very big cookie like flavor. There is also a mild earthy slight spicy hop character, with fair bitterness and blends with the bitter charred malts to bring a fair bitterness. Booze is pretty decent, some warming clean booze flavor, little tingle, but not a 13% feel, although it does get a little hot the more it warms. Eventually, after warming, I get a hint of vanilla like barrel character and the faintest hint of a sweet like bourbon. Finish is drier but super mouth coating sticky like, little syrupy, lots of lingering dark chocolate, baker's choc, little caramel and nougat like lingering, little more booze, fair spicy hop bitterness, and some slight tannic charred malt very late.

Mouth is thick, heavy as fuuu.... yes, and fair booze warmth and tingle, a bit over carbonated surprisingly.

Overall pretty interesting, nice dark malt character without getting too charred or acrid, booze is there but not too crazy for a 13% beer, nice chocolate, just a hint of vanilla barrel and nice nutty character. Pretty tasty as expected.
