Stone Brewing Co. W00t Stout 2017 22oz
Appearance: A deep, opaque, brownish-black color with a creamy brown head. Aroma: Intense cocoa and coffee with nutty coconut. Hints of licorice and loads of fruity fermentation esters. Bourbon, vanilla and oak follow. Taste: Some cocoa, coffee and fruitiness up front. Midpalate, the bourbon barrel-aged portion of the beer is apparent, so oak, vanilla, nut and bourbon flavors transition to a slight alcohol heat and hoppy, bitter finish. As the beer warms, a nuttiness almost reminiscent of almonds starts coming through (but we used pecans!). Palate: Thick and hearty. At 13 percent ABV, this beer is definitely a sipper. It is smooth and creamy, with a slightly warming and drying finish. Overall: This beer is a monster. The flavors are a wonderful blend of everything that makes a great imperial stout, loaded with roasty notes and malty complexity. Brewing with rye and nuts always creates challenges for our brewing team, but they rose to the occasion with this one - it's simply amazing. Appetizers: Oysters on the half shell, mushroom Gruyère tarts, onion focaccia, devils on horseback. Soups: Butternut squash, French onion soup, Irish stew, New England clam chowder. Entrees: Coffee-rubbed porterhouse steak, blue cheese-stuffed portabella, fennel and leek risotto, lamb osso buco. Cheeses: Maytag Blue, Valley Shepherd Creamery Crema de Blue, Farmstead Gouda, Gorgonzola Dolce DESSERTS Licorice ice cream, brownies, German chocolate cake, coconut macaroons.
