Ibrew2or3 (6782) - 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.

Skinnyviking (6772) - 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 (6582) - 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.

DuffMan (6531) - 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.

phaleslu (6281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2011
22 oz. bottle that I got in a trade, but I can’t 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 I’d drink this soon if you still have it. Really nice, rich, chocolaty beer.
