mcberko (9204) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours jet black with a small tan head. Nose brings out toasted nuts, bourbon barrels, and a little caramel. Flavour brings out loads of bourbon, followed immediately by honey, some vanilla, and some mild roast. There is a hint of rye as well, but the wheat is completely buried. The bourbon is dominant, almost completely overtaking the flavour profile -- it works beautifully. The ABV is exceptionally well-worked in. The finish is bourbon and a touch of booze. Excellent stuff.

keanex (1629) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottled June 25, 2013.
Appearance: The body is pitch black with no head even with a hard pour. What is coaxed out is a thin tan ring with a very thin and sparse coating.
Aroma: Initially the aroma is muted with a butter pecan ice cream aroma, prominent yet faint. Once the beer warms up a bit cocoa becomes a prominent aroma with hints of bourbon. This reminds me a lot of vanilla butter cream pecan ice cream with chocolate syrup drizzled on it. The aroma is still muted in a way, but it smells good.
Taste: The flavor is buttered pecan right away, with a very syrupy caramel flavor that leads to a slightly dry oaky and nutty finish, like chewing on a pecan. Bourbon lingers on the finish.
Palate: Thick and syrupy.
Overall: This is very interesting, it instantly reminds me of buttered pecan ice cream with caramel and cocoa aromas and flavors, but it comes off muted. Perhaps a few months in the cellar will do this good, allow the flavors to settle out.

On draft at Flanny’s, black pour, tan head. This is dark bitter chocolate and rye with a dose of black licorice. Pretty tasty stout.

DiarmaidBHK (3688) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a little lacing. I get mostly chocolate with a bit of rye. Nice roasty notes on the tongue. Hides it’s alcohol very well. It’s solid but not as awesomely flavorful as I’d hoped for.

magsinva (956) - Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg - this is ridiculous. Pours cola with a respectable amount of milk chocolate head. Aroma is oaky, rye, chocolate, and toasty. Taste is sour, bitter chocolate with some dryness on the finish. It’s a weird fusion, but it kind of works.

dmac (4625) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 26, 2013
22oz bomber from Crossroads. Poured a syrupy pitch black with an average sized foamy dark beige head. Aroma is syrupy with notes of burnt toast, tootsie roll chocolate, honey, cat piss, alcohol. Big big body on this with a full mouthfell loads of heat and surprisingly a dry finish that lingers with loads of heat. Flavor of vanilla extract, burnt charred wood, tar, burnt tobacco, whiskey. Not loving this one Stone I think you went a little too big.

beastmaster (367) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Aroma sweet. Beautiful pour black with tan head. Body of a barleywine, tastes like Beverly crushers snatch. I know, I’m sharing a bottle with Patrick Stewart. finish it’s giving me chocolate notes that weren’t there at the beginning. And the rye that came through earlier is beginning to wane.

EtTuCthulhu (1356) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2013
The aroma is reminiscent of booze and roasted malts, and the appearance is opaque black with a small tan head. The taste is mildly bitter, quite umami, and slightly sweet; furthermore, the palate combines an oily texture, soft carbonation, long finish, and a medium body.

BMMillsy (1748) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle at Brass Tap Gainesville. Pours pitch black and thick with little brown head. Nutty, roasty chocolate aroma with some toffee. Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Sweet barleywine-ish flavor with some chocolate and dry nuts in the background. A little astringent with the alcohol. Some rye flavor. Interesting take on a stout but not really what I was hoping for. Seems to be growing on me as I go.
