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.

22 ounce bottle - $7.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia. BOTTLED CA 07/02/16. Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, near black body with an inch or two of swiftly collapsing, yellowed-beige foam. Smell: Pecans, charry roasted malt and sugary chocolate sauce. Blatantly solventy, boozy explosion in the aroma pretty much kills it, leaving little hope it won’t carry over into the flavor. Taste: Sure enough, sugar-laced heat on the initial sip, the solventy nature runs through chocolate, roast and a lil’ spicy, piquant rye, soy sauce and pecan. Heavily sweet bourbon glaze. Charry, overly sugary, downright hot finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel. Overall: A bungled collaboration.

4.0 tap into a snifter showing pitch black and no head. The nose shows a lot of intense roasted malt notes. Upon warming up, bourbon notes of oak, vanilla, smoke, and a nice banana note in the background. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. A very intense but dry nutty forwardness begins the attack, the mid palate revealing the bourbon in the background. Big apparent alcohol spiciness running throughout and on the finish. Rye lends itself to the spiciness with a roasted malt bitterness framed around the bourbon oak and vanilla. Great flavors but the alcohol spice is a little too overwhelming.

Poured black with a thin tan head. Strong aroma with roasted nuts, chocolate, and some bourbon. Taste is excellent, full bodied with plenty of roasted malts, nuts, and chocolate. Some molasses as well with burnt brown sugar. Aftertaste is a little on the boozy side with more cocoa. The alcohol is there, but is hidden really well for 13%!

Big bottle in Portland, OR. Nose is chocolate, caramel and sweet anice. Taste is dark fruits, anice, caramel and malts. Really nice and creamy. Sweet, plummy finish with creamy texture. Good stuff. Absurdly high ABV well-hidden.

The basic concept of aroma, taste and body was excellent. But I don’t want or need 13% ABV to enjoy a brew! Rather have two 6% brews than this!

22oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee, 2016 vintage, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, bourbon and candied fruit. Pours oily black with two fingers of pillowy brown head that dissipates quickly to a thin layer. Surprisingly little carbonation after the pour. Strong flavors of caramel, molasses and maybe even burnt sugar right up front, persisting throughout as notes of vanilla, bourbon and chocolate come and go intermittently in interesting and variable combinations with each sip. Medium-to-full bodied, it’s drinkable enough but the syrupy qualities that can make a beer oppressively heavy are recognizable. A little more CO² or even a shot of nitro would only improve the balance and depth of the brew. Lightly mouth-coating and sweet. Not astringent. Not a bad stout by any measure! But at the same time, not the ideal flavor profile for me. Bourbon, molasses and caramel really dominate here, and if pecan praline takes you back to your southern upbringing, it’s here in spades. Personally, I’d rather have another glass of that fantastic 20th Anniversary Bitter Chocolate that Stone was bottling last year. A toast to many more fine stouts from Stone!

Tap. Not much of a head, nearly black dense body. Cocoa powder, brown sugar sweetness, dark fruit, and malted milk aromas. Flavor is more bitter with dark chocolate, touch boozy and bourbon, some vanilla, dark fruit and residual sugars. Thicker viscous body and warming.
