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. Enjoy now or cellar this celebration of nth degree passion and geekery applied most gracefully to the craft of brewing and collaboration-Drew Curtis/Wil Wheaton/Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout!

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.

22oz bottle, from Summer of 2013. Very dark pour. Malty chocolate nose with faint Bourbon. Robust flavors, yet well blended. Malts, Bread, Berries, Bourbon, with some licorice in the background. Well blended with a chewy palate. Hot boozy finish. One big beer!

gEUS (1237) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle shared with Dennoman. Pours opaque dark brown, decent and beautiful dark beige / marroon nut coloured head. Intense coffee roast with dark chocolate in the nose, chocolate chip cookies and nuts. Medium body, nice dry finish but a bit too much on the burning alcohol all the way through. Taste is nice rich dark chocolate with a good coffee.

AdiBeer (1407) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2014
Aroma: heavy caramel, bourbon, overripe fruits, prunes. Appearance: black, hardly any head. Taste: heavy sweet. Palate: sweets carry on, almost over powering, some coffee in the finish, light bitters at the end. Overall: almost quadruple in the aroma, but nice Imperial Stout. Pint at Stone Tap Room, San Diego.

bwa5879 (693) - Portage, Michigan, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottled 6/25/13, enjoyed 9/22/14. Pitch black pour with rich looking medium brown/cocoa head a quarter inch high. Rich bourbon, hints of pecan, molasses, bitter florals and rye as well. Scents of rich dark fruits - plum, currant, grape and raisin, booziness apparent. Very soft carbonation, creamy thick mouthfeel, effervescent finish characteristic of big BBA beers. Really bold rich flavor, dark fruits from the aroma in the forefront, cocoa and rich coffee, brown sugar and molasses, carmel, rye and bourbon toward the finish.

Malty roasted flavor, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, raisins, figs, dades, licorice, hay, citrus notes, Brown sugar, nutty notes. Alcohol is very well hidden. Great beer!

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
[5645-20130816] Bottle. Aroma brings back an old memory of some type of candy, like a tri-coloured taffy, mixed with a decadent chocolate dessert. Black body with medium-lasting tan head. Roasted spiced grains flavour. Full body. Tasty. (7/4/8/4/16) 3.9
