RSRIZZO (1882) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Aroma very faint with a alcohol scent with a hint of roasted malt. Color is solid coal black with mellow carbonation and a thick tight dark tan head. Taste is alcohol and a sweet toastiness. Starts with a full body that goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes in with a lot of alcohol then just a hint of a sour roasted malt. After taste has a little bitterness coming out. Not a very impressive brew for Stone. Alcohol dominates the flavor.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle: Opaque pour with a deep brown head which falls to a film. Very simple aroma. Tons of alcohol, dark chocolate, soy sauce, and even more ethanol notes (smells like vodka) Slick body with an extreme alcoholic flavor. Tastes like vodka with a homogeneous charred bitterness. The forefront of the flavor offers some bitter dark chocolate/bakers fudge (as notalush mentioned), as well as a salty soy sauce note. There’s just too much apparent ethanol, which is frusturating because this stuff is only 9.2% ABV (which is low, relative to many of those alcohol monster Imperial Stouts, which many happen to have less apparent alcohol flavor than this particular one) I wasn’t able to pick up on any subtleties of the malt, or any nuances at all. Reminiscent of charred vodka. I may have to re-visit this with some years behind it.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2008
Cask at GBBF with the rochefortless boyz, but the fingers are still on the gape. Alround rating: Very roasty, eppery bitter alcohol, very bitter in every aspect infact, smokey coffee character, too overpowering and too much going on.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Draught. Poured deepest brown with sandy head. Aroma of chocolate and alcohol. Strong sweet chocolate taste with alcohol. Tasted like cough syrup. faint finish, more chocolate. I honestly did not like this, and I have liked everything else I’ve ever had from stone.
