Stone W00tstout

What the brewers say

“Pecans, wheat, aked rye, and bourbon-soaked barrels provide this whopping, complex superhero version of an imperial stout with a profound complexity that makes it ideal for cellaring.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Assertive bourbon barrel character with strong notes of whisky and vanilla. Moderately strong oxida- tion that’s more sherry than cardboard. Mild pecan melds with sweet toasty malt and chocolate malt. Relatively fruity.”

Flavor: “Full malt sweetness cut with alcohol to lighten body. Barrel character comes through nicely, this is a quality boubon that gives off light vanilla notes and some dark candied fruit.”

Overall: “Full-bodied, sweet but not cloying. Taste of bourbon lingers into the aftertaste, making this a nicely done big barrel-aged stout.”
