Poured black with a huge tan head that was stable. Aroma has lots of chocolate and oats. A touch of cream and alcohol as well. Taste is nice and creamy with lots of flavor. At first nutty with chocolate. Transitions to a very nice finish with lots of creamy oats and more bitter chocolate. Very nice and complex. rejtable (2690) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016

Stone pours black with a thin white head.
Aroma is a little coffee and roasted malts but it’s dulled cause the beer is cold.
Taste is lovely chocolate and it’s velvet smooth. MetalNHopHead (1976) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Well, Stone promises bitter chocolate and you really can’t be disappointed with what Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout delivers. Dark, thick pour. It does indeed smell and taste like unsweetened cocoa. It blends nicely with the rich, full body. There are some interesting smoke and umami flavors that come through. Overall, it’s really intriguing. Oatmeal Stouts, especially boozy ones, tend to go a bit sweet. The bitter chocolate adds some sharpness, and even near-fruitiness, to the profile. A great anniversary release.

Bomber. Pours a ruby reddish black with a resilient beige head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, oatmeal. Flavor is chocolate, oat. Finish is strong bitterness, roasted hazelnut, burnt caramel. Lingering strong chocolate bitterness. Medium to full body, velvety and oily mouthfeel, weak carbonation. So very solid! drpimento (3641) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2016
Helluva beer. On the dry, bitter side. Chocolate comessage through nicely, but can’t discern the oatmeal. Great finish. AndyW68 (1542) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 16, 2016

A smoked malt aroma pours a dark black color with a thin tan head. An oily mouth feel with a bitter chocolate taste. A bitter smoked malt finish.
