wØØtstout 2.0 – Stone Brewing Co
IMPERIAL STOUT
13.5% ABV
APPEARANCE: Pours a romantic dark chocolate.Very opaque but not quite a jet black, still some nice brown hues in there. Lovely caramel colored head that had very great retention.
AROMA: Smells like pecan pie that has been soaked in bourbon, which equals deliciousness. Getting some sweetness maybe molasses and raisins. Little faint vanilla and for sure pick up the booziness from the bourbon barrel.
TASTE: Very flamboyant, layers upon layers. Right off the bat getting that nice barrel flavor. A slight spiciness that balances well with the sweetness of the chocolate and pecan. As it warmed a bit I pull out tobacco and the alcohol began to show its head.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium bodied and medium carbonation. Slightly oily perhaps from the pecans, not a super thick beer but surprisingly creamy.
OVERALL: Super solid stout from Stone. Was impressed all around, I am curious to see how this ages possibly mellowing out the heat from the high abv and blending into a beautiful layered, very easily drinking stout.
RATING: 4.5/5 zombie heads!
