High End

When creating my first w00tstout beer bread, my one qualm with the beer was its price. A $13 beer in 2014 seemed outrageous to me. Now in 2016, it is common place. The Bruery’s Tart of Darkness, which happens to be my current favorite sour beer, sells for $18 on average. But it is fine. This is the craft lifestyle we live now. I have succumbed to this craft culture. As a person who is insanely ignorant of the wine world, I like to think I treat beer as that of wine. Certain celebrations may call for “high end” beers as certain celebrations call for “high end” wines. Sometimes you have to break out that tart.

Keeping it dry

Barrel-aged beer is an understatement with w00stout. These barrels must ooze of bourbon as the flavor will instantly remind you of the southern favorite. Rather than doing the same recipe as before, I decided to make a few alterations. First, I removed the coffee. It makes no sense in this dish, unless you can find a coffee with intense pecan flavors. Next, add three to four less fluid ounces of w00tstout. This will make it slightly dryer. However, our next step is to replace the chocolate chips with chocolate chunks. Moist chocolatey goodness to offset the dryer bread.

This bread was indeed dryer but offset by the gooey chocolate chunks. So gooey that it required a copious amount of wet wipes to clean up after my dirty ass. However, the bread did not rise to my desired outcome. For future w00tstouts, I plan to integrate more pecan flavors into the bread. When it comes to barrel-age beers, I should keep it to the basic of ingredients and remove the chocolate altogether. Even without the chocolate, i”m sure this bread would keep its dark color.

    Drew Curtis / Wil Wheaton / Greg Koch Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout (2016)

    This barrel-aged palate-saver has been a favorite among our fans—and us—since its inception in 2013. Pecans, wheat, flaked rye and bourbon-soaked wood provide this whopping, complex superhero version of an imperial stout with a profound complexity that makes it ideal for cellaring—if you can wait that long. Now, we can’t say this beer bestows jedi powers, exactly, but your taste buds may...
