UPDATED: JUN 21, 2009 Re rate: The 12th Anniversary has definitely come into its own with some aging. The alcohol flavor has dissipated substantially and left an amazing beer. This beer has suddenly been vaulted into the upper echelon of my favorites. dark, bitter chocolaty goodness. Very smooth for a high ABV beer. Stoneís 12th trumps the last 2 anniversary beers, granted I am not a hop head.

Pours a deep black brown with a thick chocolate head. Nose is mellow cocoa scents. Taste is bitter and sweet all at the same time. alcohol not evident. bitter dark chocolate lovelyness on the finish.

22 oz. bottle in trade from Snojerk321- if you donít know who, you need to know. Served in tumbler- poured like motor oil out of a í81 Chevy Citation, low-medium carbonation of tiny bubbles, whisps of thin tan wafers for a head. Aroma of a heavily roasted malt, dark chocolate, and hatred. Hits the mouth with a wide and heavy body, malt kicks you right in the nards and continues to pummel you, dark molasses and hard 24 hour old on a burner coffee comes in the middle, finish has a selection of fine hops that puts a tag on your toe and declares you clinically dead. It reminds me of drinking SA Triple Bock, the whining of narcissistic Obama supporters, and nipple twisting TINKER Bell fans that havenít step foot in MI, let alone da you pee, eh! MUST... GET... MORE!!!!

BallyLoser (136) - Redmond, Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 Bottle: Pours very black. Aroma seemed a little light, that was the worst part about it. Rich tan head. Strong expresso taste with a sweet finish. lightly carbonated. after a few sips (or the temp rose) the alcohol was more noticable. Drank at about 55 F, as stated on the bottle. Perfect temp.

I look forward to the stone anniversary beers. This one did not dissappoint. Pours more black than brown, though the head hold a chocolate hue. Drinks very nice. Bitter then sweet, then its gone. Very nice brew.

AdamSkillin (376) - High Bridge, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2008
Pours 6,000 mile plus used motor oil black (always a good sign) and tastes of bitter chocolate with grainy oatmeal texture. No overbearing bitter-/ burntness (which is a good thing). Full mouthfeel, great flavor, amazing dark tan head on a truly opaque black beer. Stone always raises and then blasts through my expectations. A-plus beer.

Great chocolate stout! Big on dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavor. I would say its on par with the Imperial Russian Stout but lots more chocolate. The high alcohol is an added bonus but you wont notice it!
