22oz bottle. 7/5/16

Nice, dark pour on this one. Thin off-white head is gone quickly. Almond butter and bitter chocolate hit the nose pretty heavy. A slickness carries a fudge and coffee whirl across the tongue. Minimal alcohol and a nice sweetness. Adventure in a glass??? The Star Wars themed label has me thinking...

Great beer!
Poured a black color with the tiniest of heads.
Roasted malt, nutty aroma.
Chocolate taste. Some coffee. Vanilla. Pecan. Just a great blend.
Strong beer. At 13% ABV a sipper.

Serving type: bomber into a pint glass, 2016 version

Pours a deep mahogany brown, essentially black. Holy shit this is dark for a partially barrel aged stout. Mocha colored bubbles persist and go into a film. Smell is of intense roasted malt, nice vanilla, some genetic nuttiness, and a slight oak characteristic which becomes more intense as the beer warms. Taste reflects the smell. Intense roasty and vanilla like flavors lead into a subtle bourbon like flavor that finishes with a mix of bourbon and roasted flavors that linger for a few seconds. A generic nuttiest intermingles throughout. Feel is thick and viscous, it's hard to imagine this is only partially barrel aged. Great feel. Overall this is a pleasant stout with great nut and subtle oak characteristics.

22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Bullock's Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.

BOTTLED CA 07/02/16.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with an inch or two of swiftly collapsing, yellowed-beige foam.

Smell: Pecans, charry roasted malt and sugary chocolate sauce. Blatantly solventy, boozy explosion in the aroma pretty much kills it, leaving little hope it won't carry over into the flavor.

Taste: Sure enough, sugar-laced heat on the initial sip, the solventy nature runs through chocolate, roast and a lil' spicy, piquant rye, soy sauce and pecan. Heavily sweet bourbon glaze. Charry, overly sugary, downright hot finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: A bungled collaboration.

Beautiful stout. It looks more than 25% barrel aged. Not a lot of head but some nice lacing and noticeably thick legs. "Inky black" is probably a cliche, but I can't think of a better way to describe the look of the beer itself.
The smell is a bit subdued, but sweet and rich. The sweetness is both nutty and a little bit fruity.
The flavor is also pretty subtle. A hint of chocolate, some earthiness and spice, a hint of salt, and plenty of hops. It's more bitter than I expected. Last year's was smoother and sweeter. This one is coming across rather hot and boozy.
The feel is a good. It's smooth and sticky.
Overall: it's pretty good, especially considering its low price, but it would benefit from some aging to mellow out the booze.

A - nice dark brown black beer with a mocha head that leave nice lacing, alc legs are there and appreciated :)
S - dark malts, roasted marshmallow, pecans, chocolate, vanilla, very candy like for a 13% impy stout
T - dark malts, dark fruits, figs, roasted marshmallows, char, pecans, pralines, chocolate, vanilla, cream, like a big candy bar of a 13% stout
M - heavy, not for the weak beer drinkers, alcohol present but appropriate, aftertaste os dark malts, dark fruits, pecan pie
O - good beer. For me the downsides are 13% is pretty high abv, which it handles very well and taste great but 13% definitely limits the amount of this anyone can drink and stay reasonably buzzed. Also, i wish a higher percentage of it was bba! More bourbon and vanilla would add more depth imho. That said, great beer.

An amazingly well balanced barrel aged imp stout for sure. Never too overpowering in Stout or alcohol taste. Goes down surprisingly smooth and easy. Finishes a usual big stout to it with coffee and roasted malt with a soft burn. Well done.

This beer is sold in 22oz bombers, however I had mine on draft at Jack Browns Burger & Beer Joint. It pours almost black , with a dark brown, 1-inch head. Very smooth body, initial toffee-like sweetness complimented by a smooth bourbon burn and finished by a nutty, burnt coffee taste at the end. Incredible beer, my only complaint is that the mild coffee smell is weak comparatively to the bold, multi-layered flavors from the beer. Overall, can't take much of anything from it, 4.7/5

Update** Paired with a burger, the flavor change is incredible. Much more of the coffee comes out, paired with a burnt toast flavor and still retaining that familiar bourbon smoothness and burn. Almost like two entirely different beers!

The 22 oz. bomber had an attractive, Star Wars inspired, themed label, and a lot of character as a result. The beer poured dark, dark brown, bordering on black. The body was totally opaque, and the head was quite small in size, but looked imposingly brown in color, while it briefly lasted. The aroma of the beer was very much like a glass of mocha, with smells of chocolate and coffee coming through. The taste was sweet up front, with lots of chocolate, followed by toffee, brown sugar, and some cherries in syrup. The coffee started coming through mid palette, and the finish was bittersweet, and warming, but unlike many stouts, not very astringent. The body was obviously thick, the mouthfeel creamy, and the finish very warm. This was an outstanding beer when sampled fresh, as I trying it 15 days after the bottled on date of July 2, 2016. I am sure this will cellar well as well, but I am not sure I would have the patience to keep it from being opened. If I go down that road, I will need the force to be strong with me.

unfortunately not on par with past years...still very good though
L: midnight brown, thick mocha head with solid retention and lacing
S: much too boozy, hints of the right stuff comes through but overwhelmed bu the vodka scent
T: mellowed out version of the nose - nutty, roasted malts come through but only after a hot booziness
M: nice, on point if not for the heat of the beer
O: solid but disappointing given past years' quality...worth a try but not worth seeking out

L: Inky black pour with a nice tan fizzy head that went away after a few minutes..
S: Not what I was expecting.. Sweet. reminds me of twizzlers. With some dark cherry/raisin. Some pecan nuttiness. Bit of roasted malt.
T: Bitter roasted malts up front with some dark fruits. As it fades the pecan comes into play with a soft nutty character. No bourbon barrel character I was hoping for...
F: Soft pillowy mouthfeel. Slightly sticky.
O: Was hoping for more from this beer. It's good and all but don't see myself drinking anymore of it. Just too sweet. Still a well made beer from stone as always.

Bottled on 6/25/13 almost three years to the date of drinking.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a speiglau barrel aged glass.

Look is pitch black with little to no head.

Aroma of big barrel alcohol flavors is present right from the beginning. On closer smell opens up into a rich roasted coco semi sweet chocolate.

Taste is a wonderful combination of chocolate roast alcohol sweetness and a slight bourbon vanilla.

Wonderfully balanced beer. Age befits it.

At 13% this one of the strongest beers I've had yet the flavor of alcohol is well hidden. Rich & smooth, I liked this more than I expected. Will defend newly have to try another one. Excellent

Heck of a stout. Really sweet with good pecan notes. Do not get much a bourbon hit with this one. It is there, but in the background. What stands out is the sweet pecan taste along with the hint of the rye. Taste changes as this sipper warms up and you get to experience more flavors. Awesome brew!

2013 vintage. Robust, sweet, sticky and warm. Black body with tiny skin of a beige head. Aroma is roast grain and nuts and enough alcohol to send the nose twitching. Taste comes on strong, with plenty of alcohol warmth. Best sipped, allowing it to warm, and the flavors to emerge.

Not much in the way visually. Boozy molasses smell. Rich and roasty. Some of the flavors thrown about: licorice, plum, raisin, date, brown sugar. Booze is present, right underneath the overwhelming sweetness. Looking forward to trying another with some more age.

Bomber into an oversized cognac glass.

Starts with a nice and thick viscous pour, deep brown in color with blonde hues. In the glass it's black with a khaki-colored, plentiful and sudsy head. Lace is light but the thick film over the body is good to look at. 5

Gooey chocolate brownies and almond or hazelnut sweetness meet my nose. Weird that 2.0 smelled plenty of barrels, but 1.0 doesn't as was the case with 3.0. There is a boozy aroma but it's subdued and seems to have found its place within the beer. Some floral notes appear as does a roastiness with a coffee component. 4.25

Chocolate continues to figure prominently on the palate, but there's a fruity component that didn't appear on the nose. It's raisin, plum and cherry-like. I continue to get a yeast-y presence on this beer that I noticed on 3.0 that I associate more with Belgians or brown ales, although I've noticed it in some bourbon heavy beers. Funny thing is, there's no bourbon, barrel or anything of that sort showing on this flavor. Or if it is there, it's manifesting itself in a syrupy, nutty, Frangelico-like flavor. It's cool, but I don't completely love how this is tasting. I don't crave another sip to be frank. 3.75

Hits the tongue thick, sweet, sugary and with a kiss of yeast and carbonation. A lot of sensations but all in concert. It's definitely on the bigger side but whatever the ABV, it's settled in nicely and doesn't harm the beer. Nothing to quibble about here really, although like the flavor, I find myself searching for something more. 4

2.0 wins of the three. Not sure what to attribute that to, but it really stood out of the bunch. This is good and I prefer it to 3.0 although it does have the advantage of 2 years of age (I suppose some would say that's a disadvantage, so hey). In the end, this is a fun vertical and I'm glad to have done it.

On tap at Urge. Pours black, crimson-brown at the edges, with a quarter-inch tan head. Smells nutty, dark fruit. Taste of cherries, fig, chocolate fudge. Thick mouthfeel, low-medium carbonation. Overall a great stout, however the 2.0 and 3.0 eclipse it in flavor complexity.

2015 version with a bottled on date of 6.27.15

L - Pitch black with 1/4 finger of tan head which dissipates quickly. Looks like motor oil.

S - Cocoa, dark chocolate, caramel, and booze

T - Sweet up front, chocolate, moderately boozy, bourbon, wheat, and mild spices from the Rye

F - medium carbonation, smooth

O - This one gets better on every sip, especially as it warms. Damn good brew, and it will be in my annual rotation.

I slow pour. Not much fizz. Looking at it, I can't tell if it is old pop or new beer. It isn't icky looking, though, so in the spirit of doing things different I'll go with 'hey, looks ok, let's try it'.

Smells like rasin and molassis. Kinda sweet.

Mouthfeel is thick, oily, not really fizzy nor creamy, but just enough to get by. With an oddity like this, it's hard to say what to expect. I'll go with "different but acceptable in a fun way".

Really heavy in prune juice or rasins or something. It's sweet. Almost like simple syrup sweet. (gotta give the yeast something to eat!) Not really hoppy, almost like "is this beer?"... But, it isn't offensive.

Overall? ...it depends... It is interesting. Both bad and good things can be interesting. If you like experimenting, and like strange heavy thick dark beers, give this a whirl. If you are an "IPA or the road" person, skip this. If you like miller lite, and think you want to try what craft beer is all about, this is not a good choice. But fior the "what if..." crowd, this is definitely worth looking for!

22oz bomber, bottled on 6/25/13, 13% ABV. Pours black with a small sized brown head; some lacing left on the glass. Smells of sweet cocoa, roasted malt, and bourbon. Taste follows very closely with mostly bourbon and roasted malt. Complex midpalate. Fairly sweet, but it balances well with the alcohol. Some rye bitterness in the finish, similar to Founders Breakfast Stout. Above average body and below average carbonation. Overall, this is an enjoyable beer that stays true to the style.

STONE WOOT STOUT 10/7/15 The 2015 "3.0" version

Poured from the 22 oz,. bomber into a Samuel Smith English tulip.

a: Opaque black with a two inch thick tan head which receded slowly to

s: Mainly chocolate.

t: Follows the nose with tasty milk/dark sweet chocolate, followed by a hefty hop bite that lingers at the sides of the tongue. Throat burn turns to esophagal burn. Not getting any bourbon flavor however.

m: Medium plus, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A flavorful and powerful stout, although the very high ABV is evident throughout, at least until it kicks in and you go numb.
