Wow, Wesley Crusher can brew a mean beer. This is a great collaboration, and is now added to my favorites. Cybercat (6429) - Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Comes out of tap warm coffee-sable with a thick chocolate-milk head. Aroma has notes of bourbon, wood, coffee, molasses, well-roasted malt and semi-sweet chocolate. Bold flavor has bourbon for the headliner and co-stars chocolate, roast malt, coffee, molasses and wood. It is rather sweet but not cloying. Viscous texture has plenty of fizz and leaves a sweet finish with bourbon, chocolate and roast malt in attendance. Another perfecta! polo_marco (333) - milton, Vermont, USA - AUG 9, 2016
Smells of French toast and coffee chocolate and other baked goods. Silky midnight black in color with small cream color head light lacing. Taste is amazing sweet smooth roasted malts followed by huge hints of vanilla and a touch of milk chocolate to finish the flavor profile. Booze is hidden very well for the ABV. Full creamy body with nice carbonation for this phenomenal brew. Love this stout my favorite ever need more stout like this out there instead of one noted stouts. Badass brew west cost owns the stout game. kingaugusta (307) - Georgia, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Pours thick and black with a fine but lingering mocha head. Nose is complex and blends coffee, plum, oak, chocolate and vanilla into a nice boozy mix. Flavor leans to the sweeter side but has enormous complexity and plenty of warmth. Almost like drinking a brandy. Great stuff. PugUglyBrewer (889) - - AUG 17, 2016
midnight black color and 13% ABV impressed upon me that this was going to be a monster of a stout but it took me by pleasant surprise with a velvety texture that is medium bodied instead of chewy. The foam disappeared quickly, which seemed a bit contrary to style but nonetheless an incredible balance of flavors of nuttiness, chocolate, coffee, caramel and a bit woody that hide the 13% very well.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2017 I remember drinking Woot Stout with my father, but I forgot that the beer is brewed with pecan. Crafted with wheat, rye, and aged in bourbon barrels, Woot Stout is a specialty Imperial Stout.
The scents of pecan and bourbon are felt upon your nose as you drink. The aromas of rye and vanilla is light, but comes through if you concentrate on the smell alone. The bourbon barrel aging gives off a vanilla flavor. The presence of the rye adds a sour complexion of the body of the beer.
The rich taste of molasses is noted right out of the gate. The flavor of the bourbon compliments the thick molasses. The vanilla presence is emboldened upon the bourbon.
The texture of nuts are felt and that's the pecan that we experience. As you pay more heed to the pecan, the taste is there from start to finish. The wheat is recognized along with the nutty feel of the beer. The flavor of caramel is noted alongside the bourbon characteristic.
Woot Stout is an impeccable Imperial Stout. The complexity is like a whirlwind; I'd rather enjoy this instead of decipher it. A collaboration between three brewmasters, Woot Stout exemplifies why Stone is on the map. I would compare this beer to the same quality as a Belgian Ale. I wish this beverage was not an archival product and dusted off now and then. If you find it, it's a treasure.
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.
