Bottle: The chocolate aroma is not to be denied. It pours like motor oil with a minimal brownish grey head. I was aprehensive about the taste of bitter chocolate oats and malt but it works well. To me the bitter was not too bitter... Not your everyday beer but very good.

Aroma: No surprise - smells like dark, bitter chocolate.Alcohol noticeable in nose. Appearance: Completely opaque, basically black. Thin but medium brown head present. Flavor: Neutral at first with a quick sharp rush / bit on the tongue of carbonation and intense bitterness with a smooth, rich, malty finish. Palate: Overall initial to finish time is actually quite short making this boldly named stout feel more like a weak porter. Overall Impression: Not bad but probably will not purchase again. Did enjoy the bitterness with the smooth malty finish.

Very dark pour with a thin head, great aroma, taste and mouth feel. It is everything you would want in a stout, add bitter chocolate what a treat.

Another great stout from Stone. Pours with a lovely frothy head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is pleasant, with notes of chocolate (duh...) and smoke. Wonderful taste, the oatmeal and chocolate are very present but in perfect amounts, and balanced well with the alcohol. Great, great stout. Not as insanely great as Stoneís Russian Imperial stout, but still well worth it.

22 oz bottle got on the release date. Very excited. Pours black with a tan head. Bitter is surprisingly not that apparent but chocolate and vanilla dominate. Alcohol is present but not overbearing. Good but I was expecting more. I would choose the Russian Imperial over this anyday!

This beer has the traditional over the top Stone style hopping. I’m not saying I’m opposed to it, it’s just more novelty than daily drinker for me. This beer in particular has a subtle chocolate taste, a very full bodied beer and finishes with the hoppy after taste. it leaves the mouth fully in about 20 seconds.

It pours black with a thin brown head that laced the glass nicely. To the nose it wasnít the overpowering aroma that I was expecting. It did have hints of chocolate to the nose. When it first hits the tongue it is smooth and chocolatey. It finishes with a really dark roast coffee that is very pleasant. The 9.2% ABV isnít noticeable and seems that it would sneek up very quickly. Overall...WOW! I would and will try this again. I canít believe I havenít tried this sooner.

SCBrew (31) - San Clemente, California, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Beautiful, nearly black pour with creamy beige head. First aroma was mild roast, followed by subtle chocolate. Silky mouthfeel with a bit of sweetness. Roasted grain bitterness with toasted flavors. Nice alcohol warming.

1/2 pint from tap at Bodega; pleasant aroma, solid flavor, strong bitter aftertaste on first sip, fades with subsequent sips; I’m a stout fan, and this was a treat
