Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout

CIMG7875

Well this is interesting. This imperial stout is a collaboration between Greg Koch (Stone), Wil Wheaton (Star Trek dude and general geek), and Drew Curtis (Fark.com). And it’s huge: 13% ABV. This beer also features pecans, wheat and rye malt and a quarter of it is aged in Bourbon barrels. Let’s give it a taste.

Stats:
Imperial Stout. 13.0% ABV. 65 IBUs. California. Limited Release.

Really, really dark brown color, so let’s say black. Dark tan head.

Holy booze. Booze, wet rocks, hint of chocolate. Slightly nutty and vanilla component on there too.

Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy.

Chocolate covered nuts, booze, vanilla, bourbon, vanilla, booze.

I shouldn’t be breathing near any flame. It’s rich and complex, but just way too over-the-top for it to be enjoyable on my palate. I might have gone crazy for this a couple years ago, but I just don’t see the point today. Perhaps age will help, or it just might turn into soy sauce. 89 points.
