Holy black. Poured like chocolate syrup, yet still summoned the 'head' gods with a big two-incher of mocha foam. Black tar liquid underneath.

Amazingly, I can pick up the wheat in the nose. Mildly nutty, or maybe a placebo effect, but I think I can pick up the pecan meat. Light bourbon barrel presence. Big malty roast with wisps of char and smoke kiss. Otherwise, hints of licorice and sweet cream round out the complexity.

A little sweet, but delicious. Bourbon took the back seat, but the subtlety of it is nice and elevates notes of spicy rye and tangy wheat. This beer is boozy, but 13% is a little hard to believe. Notes of dark chocolate liquor and dark fruits. Mouthfeel is luscious. Super creamy and thick with a light spicy kick and spatter of carb and alcohol fortification.

Very good, but the pecans didn't really show through. Still an excellent beer.

W00tstout... from the cellar to the snifter.

A one-finger tan head fizzles away fast. It's your basic black color that most stouts have, but it really isn't as black and thick-looking as I would expect such a huge imperial stout to look.

It smells like vanilla, bourbon, maple syrup, molasses, milk chocolate, and raisins. Yummy. I think there's some caramel and earthy coffee in the aroma, too.

And the taste... "W00" is right. Vanilla, boozy bourbon, molasses, licorice, roasted earth, and a kind of nuttiness in the aftertaste... must be those pecans. The alcohol is pretty obvious... pretty conspicuous... but I don't mind its bold prominence. The sweetness here is tempered by the nutty, earthy, roasty dimension, making it all meld together quite nicely. Also... it took a while of sipping it, but a spicy rye element DID emerge long into the finish. Impressively true to the ingredients advertised.

The feel is fabulous... it's ridiculously thick and creamy, just how I like it in these kinds of stouts.

An imaginative ale which blends together a nice combination of complimentary flavors. Sip slowly though, or face the hung-over consequences.

Poured cold and cola black from the bottle to an upland goblet with a thin and short lasting creamy tan head with a bit of lace after a sip.

Aroma of smoke and earthy hops, maybe a bit of black coffee.

Smoke and heat on the palate. Long lasting heat, like a chili. Big hops presence, big smoky dark malts.

Medium bodied, medium carbonation, heat, creamy smooth. And did I mention heat.

Very nice.
