ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2013
22 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a supremely dark brown color, one that’s very opaque. Very little head here, just a thin tan-colored film, and even that retains poorly. On the other hand, this has visible alcohol legs. S: This has a lot of boozy dark fruits, along with perhaps a twinge of nuttiness and a twinge of chocolate. There’s also a twinge of bourbon - not actual oaky character, though. An acceptable nose...but man, I was expecting something that was total batshit insanity with a side of bourbon-soaked pecans. And it’s just not; it’s really just...boozy. Inhaling directly from the bottle yields more pecan notes, though. T: The opening flavors are very chocolaty - always a good thing in imperial stouts. Bourbon very briefly pops up in the middle, before turning into a spicy, boozy finish. Some pecan flavors also pop up on the back end, becoming gradually bolder as more is imbibed; the strong nutty character is very redolent of Arrogant Bastard to an extent. The booze bite on the back end is more fruity than fusely. It’s about as alcoholic as I expect a 13% stout to be, no more, no less, and becomes less of an issue as this warms up. Actually, my chief complaint about this brew isn’t the alcohol presence (that gradually calms down), it’s the lack of complexity. There really isn’t much to this beyond booze, chocolate, and pecan. Even worse, there really isn’t a lot of harmony or balance between those flavors. But it’s endearing. Endearing, much in the same way that ’Merica is endearing. Gawd bless ’Merica. M: It feels a bit light (I’d call it medium-bodied if it weren’t 13%) and airy, along with a touch of rye-derived coarseness. There isn’t much of a substantial feeling on the palate - it’s almost like it was designed to be surprisingly drinkable for such a big stout. And honestly? It is. At a higher temperature, the boozy notes become obscured, making this even easier to sip. O: It’s not often I get a brew where the flavor profile is MUCH better than the aroma (without the aforementioned nose being out-and-out horrid and/or not to my liking), but this is exactly that. I wouldn’t call it top-caliber - it doesn’t have supreme depth, or even a good balance for that matter. Still, it has a definite charm that makes it much better than the average imperial stout. And hey, it’s far more likeable than Wesley Crusher ever was.

Draft. A black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, and hints of bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, bourbon, coffee, and chocolate, leading to a dry roasted finish.

Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Smells of chocolate, roast, and booze. Taste is chocolate, nutty, boozy, and sweet. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout finishes with a lingering alcohol sweetness.

jrob21 (3434) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 21, 2016
Finally grab a version of this. Sweet, pecan, a bit of bourbon, caramel, lots of caramel. Wish it were a little colder outside for this but it is tasty. Finish is long lasting. A little bourbon sweetness up front and then you are left with a bittersweet chocolate taste about 5 minutes after your sip.

Dorkenstein (425) - - SEP 17, 2016
Pipe tobacco, vanilla, cherry, and fudge aromas. Taste is dark chocolate fudge, dried cherries, vanilla, roasted nuts, black licorice, and roasted malt. As it warms a stronger plum and fig presence appears to compliment the other flavors.
