hapjydeuce (975) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUL 18, 2013
On tap at Stone Company Store in Oceanside. Deep black with mahogany edges and a light ring of lacing. Nice aroma of smoked pecan, chocolate malt and anise. Robust flavor of chocolate, smoke, licorice and the pecan shows through a bit. Warming character of alcohol and oak that shows off the minor Bourbon influence. Ass-kicker of a beer at the ABV

Bottle 22oz $10 2015 drank fresh): Black with tan head that disappeared quickly. Aroma sweet roasted malts with some bourbon. Taste some chocolate. Kind of syrupy. light carbonation full body. Not sure where the pecans come in. Some alcohol burn in the end. Good

DYCSoccer17 (3490) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 28, 2015
22 ounce bottle purchased at Nugget in Woodland, CA. Aroma is fairly straight forward with some cocoa powder, light roastiness, and a little bit of anise. Opaque black body with a medium to large light brown foamy head. Starts with a sweet, sugary, chocolate flavoring. Becomes fairly metallic in the middle with a lot of tinny character. Finishes with a bit of an ethanol burn. Kind of sticky, almost as if there is a little diacetyl here, too. I suppose that could be the pecans creating that flavor, however. Regardless, this is decent.

Bottle thanks to jheath99. Pours opaque black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roast, earthy notes, oak, faint vanilla, dark fruit notes, and spicy booze notes. Flavor is dry and roasty with rich dark chocolate, light espresso, oak, black licorice, and faint oak and booze. Full, creamy body.

nearbeer (4156) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2015
650 ml. bottled 06/27/15. Pours deep brown-black with a smattering of bubbles. Nose is chocolate, soy and touches of char, citrus and green herb. Tastes of the same. None too complex for such a big beer, but hides the 13% very well. Medium-heavy body is well balanced and has medium-high carbonation.

JohnGalt1 (798) - , Idaho, USA - JUL 24, 2015
2015 bottle WootStout.. Picked up at the Boise COOP... Pours standard black with a very thin dark brown head... absolutely no lacing or cap. Boozy mash-up of bourbon, light roast malts for a RIS, interesting nutty and dry toffee component.. toasted marshmallow.. bittersweet chocolate with warmth and something that I associate with cinnamon. There are soooo many different flavors/adjuncts that are in this fresh.. It actually works even given the heavy ABV... Will it work better with age? I have no idea... but I am amazed how well it drinks fresh.

574deadzone (1208) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2015
2015. Pours an inky black with a decent sized creamy mocha brown head that settles to a thicker ring and leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves plenty of chocolate and nuts, hints of bourbon, some leafy herbal hops, marshmallow, raisin, candied orange, and some alc vapors. Really sweet, fairly bitter. Full bodied but not super-thick, quite oily, fairly active, rich, finishing dry and toasty with bitterness. An approachable beast.

Petkus331 (349) - Redford, Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Mild aroma, some roast malt, raisin, and strawberry. Appears opaque dark roast coffee with tan head. Taste starts out dark roast malt, fades into chocolate, then fades into a mild toffee marshmellow. Palate is fizzy and light. Overall, very good.

firstsip (681) - Michigan, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Tap. Pitch black. Tan head. Very subtle charred malt nose. Rich body. Incredibly nuanced flavor profile: sweet malt turns into vanilla turns into chocolate. ABV is well camouflaged. Impeccable BA stout.
