Shared a bottle with my brother. Aroma started out mild, got heavier as it warmed, then turned to mild alcohol (nothing bad). Mouthfeel: thick, viscous, kinda like motor all, full bodied. Flavor of thick roasted malts, some rye, I think I get the mild pecan, overall complex with less flavor initially, much more as it warms. Chocolate and dark fruit. Really well done.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of pepsiedcan. Thanks c@e! Pours a black appearance with a thin dark brown head. Very rich cocoa, anise, whiskey, vanilla, oaky, delicious aroma. Fairly smooth, plum, dark fruity, nutty caramel,candy bar, chocolate flavor with some bourbon and fig on the finish. Enjoyable.

Sept. 1, 2013. Sample from 22 oz. bomber. Chocolate/coffee notes; a bit boozy, but not overwhelmingly so, given the 13% ABV. Long finish. Nice.

From bottle. Thick and black with medium head. Smells like grapes and licorice. Taste is more licorice and chocolate. Soft bourbon notes in finish. Could benefit from some aging.

Fizz& darkness. Booze is well hidden.Wood carb buzz with some burn. Morishly nutty. Love those peacans & rye. lovely. How is it that everything Will wheaton touches becomes gold? He’s Midas without the downside.

Bottle, thanks Mike. Black with tan head. Nutty, meaty, slightly roasty aroma. Taste is nutty and roasty, some alcohol. Decent body with a bit of a burn. Decent

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque black - brown beer. Good tan head. Oatmeal and dark chocolate on the nose. Palate is soft and viscous with fine carbonation. Mild dark chocolate, mellow coffee. Trace of bourbon and spice. Light dry finish with a good coffee bourbon bitter linger.

Bottle; Pour is murky dark brown with a fine bubbled, one finger khaki head int his glass ; some light, sticky lacing present here, with moderate retention. The nose is initial chocolate morsel, nut bread, dark fruit, and light booze - The flavor profile is bitter chocolate initial, mild booze, more dark fruits present, while moving to a silky mouthfeel thanks to the rye note - the barrel treatment (vanlla , bourbon) is modest, but finds its way to tongue eventually - this brew lacks heft - the center work well , though - i was impressed by the alcohol content, for what that’s worth - a nice one to try, i thought - but the finish eventually wears on you

Tap. First of all, what a stupid name (or stupid Ratebeer search algorithm). woot was not found. I finally had to look up Stone Brewing Co. and go through their all their beers to figure out it was w00t with zeros in it. The beer, however, was very good. I got some fruity flavors up front with the malt. It then ran through chocolate and bourbon and finished with a strong alcohol burn. I only had a small snifter, but at 13% and this level of sweetness, I wouldn’t want much more. Very good, but best in small doses.
