Wow, Wesley Crusher can brew a mean beer. This is a great collaboration, and is now added to my favorites.

Aroma of deep, smoked malts, wood, oak and roasted molasses with a more faint hint of almonds/pecans behind it. Solid black appearance with beautiful lacing and little foam. Massively complex with pecan, walnut, maple syrup, slick, melted caramel and chocolate upfront with a second phase of espresso, toffee, alcohol and continuous nutty notes. Overall, this is a masterpiece. Stone has outdone themselves with this one. This is one of the greatest Imperial Stout’s I have ever had. Delicious, decadent, delectable and rich. This is a must have. I’d give this an easy A+ rating.

Bottle. Pours a near black color with a very small thin light brown head on it. Nose has just a hint at some bourbon in there, but with some nice roasting coming through. The taste is roasting dominant and very warming to the palate and throat. Goes down super smooth. Very nice.

750 ml - I wouldn’t change anything. Black oil, no carbonation, layers of flavor with hops on back.

Aroma is fruitcake/fruit/raspberries, wheat, dark malts and vinous notes. The flavor is fruitcake, raspberries, dark malts, vinous notes and a very long and tart/alcoholic finish. Was expecting this to be pretty good and realize I underestimated it, wow this was awesome.

This is one tasty beer! Thick on the tongue and complex flavor required multiple sips to get the full span of complexities. A nice balance of sweetness, darkness, and body. I highly recommend this one!

This is definitely a stout for people who like sweet stouts. Heavily pecan-scented and smooth -- almost too smooth, given the high alcohol content. It’s very easy to drink this beer too quickly, so be careful.

MikeTheWizard (14) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Heady creamy mocha textured foam atop a pitch black body. Pours thick and viscous and sticky. Smooth all the way through. No hint of high ABV. Soft pillow mouthfeel, Aroma is dark chocolate, dark fruit, bourbon, molasses and nutty coffee. This beer is fantastic.

Some light "dark chocolate" aroma. The flavor is bourbon up front with some chewy date maybe . This is quite tasty and doesn’t seem anywhere near the 13%. Very smooth and enjoyable at the finish as well. Excellent.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2013 Draft at Jerry’s. Black with modest, creamy, brown head, light lacing / Restrained nose of dark fruit, chocolate, roast grain, cream / Full body, chewy, creamy, lush, sweet, winey and boozy, but lovely balance with good bitterness underneath the long finish / Flavors of chocolate liqueur, date, fig, wheat, pecan, bourbon barrel / Minor deductions, but in end result, as good a stout as I’ve had.
