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.

Keg at Brewdog as ’w00tstout 2.0’. Black, small foamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate, molasses, sherry, floral. Body is medium, quite foamy, mid-carbonation. Taste is chocolate syrup, tangy fruit with a yeasty marmite edge, alcohol is noticeable and brings a brandy sharpness. Came across as a bit unbalanced, but a decent imperial stout.

evergreen0199 (1995) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Cask at Great British Beer Festival 2014, Olympia, London. A black coloured pour with a thin beige head on top. Sweet, boozy, chocolate aroma. Tastes similar, sweet, slightly roasty, boozy, chocolate, some vanilla. Clearly a well made Imperial Stout but it was a bit heavy going.

gendv138 (1191) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2014
22 oz bottle (2.0) poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Black with a almost a finger of tan head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, dark fruit, dark chocolate, light booze. Tastes of bourbon, caramel, dark chocolate, spices, rye. Medium-full body with a dry and slightly warm finish. Low carbonation, semi-oily mouthfeel. Dig this more than the original batch/1.0.

hopscotch (9057) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The bouquet is a blend of carbonic, bitter, black malts, spicy grains and dark chocolate. Full-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. There’s a shit-ton of burnt, bitter charcoal both in the flavor and lengthy carbonic finish. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice. I enjoyed this like a fat kid likes cake. This was the 2.0. I have to say the first one was better, but still pretty good. Don’t know why it redirected me and I thought I rated this before, pretty sure.

cpetrone84 (1369) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Pour is almost black with a thin tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, licorice, a faint wood and hint of alcohol. Taste has chocolate up front with a kick of spice and a touch of licorice. The wood comes in behind, a fair bit of booze and not really bourbon, just boozy. Finish is a bit of malt sweetness, brown sugar and some berry sweetness. Medium to full body, moderate carbonation, chalky finish.

Pours a super dark brown black color small head. Aroma is faint chocolate with citrus and cherry tobacco. The taste follows the aroma with some dark fruit notes and a chocolate brownie note aswel as a Bailey?s and cream note and chocolate cherries This is extremely good! Medium to heavy mouth feel. Very well made and I will for sure grab this again.

MacBoost (1246) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - JUL 29, 2014
W00t Stout 2.0 thanks to phaleslu. Thanks, bro! Bomber. Pours a very thick black with a small dark brown head. Aromas of chocolate milk mixed with gasoline. Taste is sweet, lightly bitter and hot. Flavors of chocolate, booze, anise, heavily roasted malt. Perhaps a touch of smoke. Nutty, full bodied, black twizzlers. Very noticeable alcohol where prairie bomb had very little. This beer is decent but not great. Gets you buzzed QUICK though if you chug the entire bottle in under 2 minutes like I did. Grate. Fine.
