deyholla (7711) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2010
Bottle thanks to womencantsail. Pours black with minimal head. Aroma has notes of dark chocolate, dark grains and a hint of coffee and alcohol. Flavor has a strong dark chocolate note with underlying coffee and a bit of an alcohol bite at the finish.

DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 18, 2008
On tap at the Falling Rock in Denver. Thick, black oily pour with a dense thin dark brown head. Beefy smoke aroma, with underlying vegemite and dark chocolate. Wow. Heavy, full-bodied, chewy, with flavours of rich dark roast coffee beans, chocolate, smoke. Bitter, bitter finish. Loved it.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2008
Draught. High creamy and lasting brown head. Pitch black body. Coffee choccolate aroma and flavor with a touch of vanilla and a good deal of hops bitterness. High carbonation and a long sweet aftertaste.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Tony at OTH & Idatetheformula. What is there to say? Another great beer to come out of Stone that never ceases to amaze me. Pours black with a dark brownish head. Aroma is roasted, oat and malty. Taste is indeed a little bitter but balanced with the chocolate. Another winner.

DruncanVeasey (7424) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2009 Bottle at The Penguin. Huge collapsing chocolate mousse head over tar, lacing thickly at the strength. Burnt toast and oak chip charcoal aroma completely drowning out the chocolate. Spiritous whiskey burn from the off, lightning struck oak, toast fished out of the bin...just a mouthful of smouldering carbon really. Oily but not slick or luxurious. What a disappointment. All roast and no hops, certainly no chocolate or oatmeal. Crumb of incinerated nut, dab of yeast extract. One of the rawest, most ethanol-drenched efforts Iíve had in a while. Bit more choc lurking in the bottom of the bottle, but such a thin and one-dimensional flavour profile. Saw it all off in the end. Not a bad beer but a bad chocolate oatmeal stout.

Camons (7371) - Hasselager, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle @ Timbers, Denver. Thanks to Aaron for holding on to this one for me. Pours black with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, hints of caramel, oat, light smoke. Taste is malty, rich dark chocolate,sweet slightly dark fruit, bitter orange, port, oat. Medium body, soft carbonation, lasting bitter sweet chocolaty finish. 280212

phaleslu (7363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2011
22 oz. bottle that I got in a trade, but I canít remember who sent it. Sorry about that. Pours a deep, deep opaque brown color, black in the middle and browner around the sides, with a small brown head that settles into a ring. Aroma of rich dark chocolate, oats, mocha, dark fruits (raisins, dates), roasted malts, brown sugar, and toasted nuts. The flavor is just a little different, with dark fruits and dark chocolate, oats, roasted malts, mocha, sweet bread, and berry fruits. Full-bodied, with a gritty, chocolaty mouthfeel and low carbonation. Just a hint of oxidation is setting in, so Iíd drink this soon if you still have it. Really nice, rich, chocolaty beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Pours deep dark brown with thin mocha head. The aroma is full of big inviting dark chocolate notes pulling me toward the glass. I also get layers of toffee, roasted malts and a bit of caramel. Solid. The taste is nearly the same with thick rich dark chocolate that has that bit of velvetiness to it. It then moves into molasses, toffee, smooth roasted malts and a sense of coffee toward the finish. Yummmmmy.

Ughsmash (7327) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2009
Bomber. Poured nicely-viscous deep brown with a rich tan head. The aroma picked up a hefty dose of bakerís chocolate with flaked oat and lactic sweetness around.. vanilla and coffee grounds as you stick your nose farther in.. earthy and spicy on the very back. The flavor found a blend of bakerís chocolate and sweeter, milkier chocolate at the core with intermittent cofee character.. moderate-to-high roast to it.. vanilla, char, and ashy smoke rode out the edges.. finished with chocolate bitterness and alcohol warmth. Heavier-bodied and a little bit slick on the palate with rising bitterness and warmth as it made its way through the mouth.. lasting, tasty impression on the finish. Solid, but not spectacular.

bb (7305) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle. Black beer with a brown head. Chocolate and caramel aroma. Chocolate, light roast flavor with some espresso, alcohol, and a bit of raisin. Somewhat fuller bodied. Lingering chocolate, espresso, licorice, alcohol, and earth. Needs aging. I’m betting it’ll become a very nice beer, but it isn’t there yet.
