Bottle thanks to Jack at his leaving drinks! It pours opaque, darkest brown with a quickly dissipating head. The nose is roasty, coffee, earth, nut, toast, dark fruit, gateaux, rocky road and a touch of red berry. The taste is bitter-sweet, roasted malt, earth, cocoa, dark fruit, coffee, rocky road, chocolate, vanilla, nut and mild acidity with a dry, roasty finish. Warming alcohol on the finish. Full body and fine carbonation. A big beer, yet somehow I found it a bit too easy to drink. Nice stuff.

I got the cool cartoon bottle. Poured a nearly opaque reddish black with lacing around edge of deep snifter, the edges glowing red in the sunlight. Boozy, vanilla and raw pecan nose. Pecans are mentioned on bottle and in ingredients, but that doesn’t sway me into just thinking pecans, it’s PECANS!!! The combination somehow gives it a cinnamon aroma. The stout is soft, smooth, silky and initially very sweet. The sweetness gives way to a dry, bitter finish with some strong alcohol bouncing around, as well as strong vanilla, oaky barrel notes. That strong bitter dryness at the far finish, is very representative of eating raw pecans!!!

Round, delicious and smooth, like breastmilk from a goddess, deep pecan and roasty marshmallow-. Prominence of ethereal impressive considering ABV, slight oaky-barrely note add mystery: mastery.

thirdeye11 (5555) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 7, 2013
(22oz bomber) deep brown, fine dark tan bubbles. Nose of oatmeal, wheat,sweet, brown sugar, chilis. vanilla. Taste of oatmeal, roasty, bourbon and alcohol. Nothing special.

mcmd (314) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Pour is black with a brown head which settles quickly. Aroma is overwhelming booze, chocolate, nuts, dark fruit, seems weird but almost getting perfume in the nose. Taste is also all over the place - dark fruit and alcohol dominate, rye, hint of bourbon, again a cloying perfume/cologne presence, hops present more as bitterness in the finish. This thing is a mess. Hopefully makes more sense with age.

baraciisch (1901) - USA - AUG 7, 2013
Deep black in color with tan lacing... Aroma of candied pecans, toffee, vanilla... Flavor is candied dates, coffee, dark chocolate, a little boozy on the finish... Notes of bourbon, definitely not a bourbon bomb to my dismay... Def solid though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ICEatALAMO (941) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle. The pour is dark with a carmel head around the rim. The aroma is intense, strong since I can smell it from the table, and inviting. A sweet bourbon aroma. The taste is interesting. Almost a little dry, similar to that of a dry wine. The bourbon is a nice blend and you can get some of the dried fruits. Not sure I am getting enough pecan flavor. Overall a top notch beer as usual from Stone.

Awesome, Saltness of Pecans, Porter mouthful, nice bourbon linger taste, 1/4 of it aged did just right, its not a bourbon bomb like stone 15th anniversary aged in lowland scotch barrels. (still top 20 beers for me). leather was balanced with earthy tones quite well. its rated a 4.4 off my scale above but I think 4.7 is more about right, price about 5-10 below what it should, thanks STONE, Bringing it easier to craft fans.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - AUG 7, 2013
On tap at Davis Beer Shoppe in Davis CA. Pours black, with a ton of lacing. Aroma is of dark fruits. Full flavored brew with rum, dates and raisins being the most predominate. Still a little hot on the palate. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ekoerper (589) - Iowa, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Aroma: lots of chocolate and roast malts, some coffee, a bit of toffee and burnt caramel, slight earthy/smoky character, hints of bourbon. Appearance: jet black, thin tan head which was short-lived. Taste: chocolate and dark fruits, roast malts and coffee, a bit of smoke and char, light bourbon notes, caramel, pleasant sweetness balanced by some warm alcohol and bitterness. Palate: full body, low-medium carbonation. Overall: a solid imperial stout - well done.
