22 oz. bomber poured into a large wine glass Pours jet black with a thin deep mocha cap of foam which sticks around like the polar ice cap did 50 years ago. Drops artsy lace, solid.

Aroma is pleasantly boozy in a sense with earthy hops and some light chocolate though not overwhelmingly complex/obtrusive. A touch of barrel is there, perhaps, yet slowly revealing itself in the background as the beer warms.

Light black cherry and a bit of nut on the flavor, yet mostly a notable dose of ethanol in a well integated sense. Finishes with a bit of dark chocolate spice.

Nice feel and finish. Clean for what it is though surely packs a punch.

bottle into tulip

appearance: pitch black with 1 finger off mocha head

smell: earthy hops, oak, roasted malt, smokiness, alcohol presence, subtle hazelnut and pecan on the tail end

taste: Getting lots of roasted espresso malt and dark chocolate malts, with an herbal hoppy presence. Has elements of the Stone RIS, but with a lot more flavors as well. Beautifully complex, the tail end really lets the rye and pecan flavors come out, and it lingers for quite a while. Not really getting much bourbon, but then again only 1/4 is aged in bourbon barrels. There's a nice smokiness in the middle, and there is definitely a huge warming alcohol presence, which blends in nicely.

mouthfeel: medium carbonation, huge thick bodied feel

overall: A great collab from Stone, they never disappoint. You can definitely tastes Stone's influence on this beer, I was getting some similar flavor notes from the RIS, but there's so much more to this beer, such as pecan, rye and a lot more alcohol presence is felt. It's very nicely balanced and highly drinkable.

Poured into a tulip.

A - Appears to be an imperial stout. Nice fluffy mocha head with flecks of red. Fair retention for the ABV.

S - Roasted malts with a hint of the bourbon presence. A bit of acridity.

T - This is pure decadence. Some milk stout like creamyness, a great nutty back bill from the grains and pecans, a pleasant, not cloying sweetness. Plenty of booze but not overwhelming. Rich and chocolatey.

M - Pretty much the creamy viscous feel I want in a Imperial Stout. Well carbonated.

O - A really really great stout from Stone and Mr. Wheaton. Beats their standard RIS and variations by a mile (and I really like those beers too). It feels naughty, like having a second serving of that dessert you know you shouldn't. Playful yet complex. A big win for Stone.
