Brewed with rye, wheat malt and pecans and partially aged in Bourbon whiskey barrels, this viscous yet silken brew erupts with an oaky, nutty bouquet and rich flavors of vanilla, toast and bitter chocolate.

Really dark, very little head. Sweet, alcoholic, very strong. Didnt really taste the pecans in it, but definitely got the bourbon barrel taste. I usually love Stones beers, but this one was tough to drink for me. Just a bit too much in the way of overwhelming alcohol. As always with Stone, however, a very interesting beer.

Black pour with a mocha brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, light pecan, some sweetness. Taste is creamy, roasted malt, wheat, nutty, light bourbon/vanilla. A plethora of flavor that melds together to form one tasty ass beer. If Dr. Cooper would drink beer, even he would love his arch-nemesis beer. Great lacing and the beer clung to the side of the glass well after I finished. The 13 % alc kind of knocked me.

Pours ink black with a wispy beige head. Sweet, malty aroma with the booze coming through. Initial boozyness and a lingering slight bitterness with a tingling sensation. No pecan taste apparent to me. What little head there was turned creamy as the beer warmed. Alcohol also became more apparent as the beer warmed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour no head. Aroma has a touch of bourbon and candied pecan. Taste is pretty sweet. Fairly thick creamy mouthfeel. Very tasty stuff and fantastic value at $ 8.99.

Pour is a pitch black with no head at all. Aroma is roasted malt with some roasted nuts. Flavor is a nice roasted malt maybe a little herbal hoppyness but then bam a intense alcohol. This one needs to sit for a few years. Finish leaves some of the bourbon notes along with the bourbon alcohol burn. Cant rate this any higher b/c of the alcohol but I can see good things coming with this one after some age.

Bottled. Black pour. Medium brown head. Nice lacing. Medium full mouthfeel. A little slick. Medium low carbonation. Nutty roasty nose. Pretty standard. Sweet, roasty malt. A little bit of pecan in the finish. Pretty nice Impy Stout. Looking forward to cellaring one for a couple of years. ---Rated via Beer Buddy from my iPad.

Tap. Dark pitch black pour with a thin mocha head. Vanilla, raisin, nuts, oak, cacao, coffee. Smooth full body with bitter but balanced finish. Very nice but 13 percents kicks you slowly.

Bottle. So right off the bat, the aroma of this is different, I swear it reminds me of Cocoa Pebbles cereal. The beer is well-bodied, and is uber-rich ... semi-bitter chocolate, oak, prune, and smooth nuttiness. Go easy ... the 13% comes on heavy. (#5183, 7/27/2013)

Bottle thanks to Huhzubendah. Thanks. Poured a nice dark brown color, head was a tan head, turns wispy. Alcohol legs. Aroma was some wheat notes, sickly sweet notes. Flavor was wheat, alcohol burn is there. A little hot, would be probably better aged a year or more.
