Courtesy of After4ever, thanks Tom! It is pitch black with a nougat colored, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, ash, chocolate, light smoke, wood and it is funny, but I can smell the bitterness. The flavour has a roasted and hoppy bitterness, notes of roasted malt, wood, bitter chocolate, light sweetness and coffee and a hint of ashes. It is at the same time both very bitter and yet smooth, complex and yet straight forward, and interesting mix.

Dogbrick (10033) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 12, 2008
This beer pours blacker than black with a thick brown and foamy head that diminishes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Milk chocolate, grainy malt and oatmeal aroma. Rich smooth body with flavors of dark chocolate, dried fruits, vanilla and roasted malts. The finish is bitter dark chocolate and sweet malt. Overall this beer is not at the top of the charts as far as Imperial Stouts go, however it is well-crafted and enjoyable which is the norm for Stone.

A great stout, thanks Radek Kliber. Good looks and lacey. Good aroma, a little ourness and hops. Balance in the taste, a sipper, a good bitterness. I will try this with friends again soon.

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2008
Shining, black body under a small, tan head. Inviting aroma of sweet, lightly roasted malts. Very rich flavoured ale with cocoa, vanilla and chocolate up front successfully mixed by late and dried fruits. Lingering smooth bitterness to the aftertaste. Very well bodied with tingling alcohol on the tongue. Wonderful and superb. This ale has got almost everything - maybe except for the oatmeal (my best drink at this year’s GBBF, 06.08.2008).

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 3, 2010
22oz courtesy of dpjuart. Pours jet black with a three finger brown head that has excellent retention and lacing. Aroma is a bit salty, some green olives, Kalamata olives, light tobacco, cocoa powder, chocolate cupcake, rich caramel as it warms. Taste is a bit salty, some olives, unsweetened dark chocolate, a little bit tart. Pretty nice.

DSG (9343) - Tel Aviv, - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Shachar. Black-colored with a light brown foam. Aroma of dark bitter chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruits, a bit of smoky hints and a bit of alcohol. A bittersweet flavor with chocolate, malt, light fruitiness, nutty hints and a drier finish with more bitterness. Rather full-bodied. A good Stout.

22oz bottle, shared by brew3crew. Dark brown more clear color. Thin lighter brown head, couple dots of lace. Big, chewy texture. Bigger body. Lighter carbonation. Very interesting herbal raw mint leaf aroma. Dark chocolate, light oatmeal. Good bitterness, light bitter sweet. Very light alcohol in the finish. Very light coffee note. Still drinking good. Very happy for the opportunity to try this.
