One of my all time favorite beers Stone has done! Had this one out of my growler after sitting for about 5 days so it had very low carbonation. Perfection... pours as black as your ex girlfriend?s heart with a quickly dissipating brown head. First smell is of rye with a hint of bourbon and a very small amount of pecan. Taste wise at this point of maturation is a very smooth chocolate flavor with the sweetness of pecan and a little bit of bourbon on the back end. If you are fortunate to find this beer anywhere at this point, drink it! Although with caution because this beer packs a deceptive punch at 13% abv.

[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

1 liter growler from Stone Escondido as W00t 2.0. Almost black pour with a tan head and nice lacing. Fairly light aroma of dark and sweet malts. Flavor is molasses at first with some warning booze and figs in the finish. Nice.

Can’t tell much from the wheat in here but the pecans are more prominent and the rye obvious. The barreling is light but the beer is already so strong and a little sweet that it corms through nicely as well. Fairly bitter with more than ample sweetness with a dark fruit, molasses, hops and cocoa bent to it. Pretty awesome brew that I think will only get better with a little age (as the only small faults were a little bit of overagressiveness, especially on the Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout nose. Rich like a worldwide almost, but waaaaay more hopped, with a splash I bourbon. Seriously...5 days later. More bourbon on the nose and flavor than b4. In a good way."

Another great stout from Stone. Strong roasted and floral hop aroma. Pours very dark with a thin ring for a head. Thick and viscous with a smooth dryness. Strong roasted chocolate flavors up front with a lasting bitterness. The IBU’s must be high. Well balance and the alcohol is hidden.

Tap at brewdog shepherds bush. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Rich sticky fruit cake aroma with caramel. Full body, light carbonation. Lots of sweet candy licorice, booze, light choc, light coffee, treacle. Sweet and pretty dominant booze. OK.

Keg at Brewdog Shepherds Bush (served very cold but allowed to warm to decent temp - better than the tepid cask version at GBBF though). Jet black with a head the colour of white coffee. Big banana aroma mixed in with the bourbon and chocolate. Loads more banana and coconut in the mouth to complement the booze and the coffee and chocolate roast. It’s quite good but not a world-beater.

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.
