, Copenhagen - pours black with a tan head. Roasted and sweet malty aroma and taste, with high chocolate prominence, some coffee, caramel, oaty, vanilla, light vanilla caress into the close. Lovely.
"didn’t realize this beer was so strong (or classified as an imperial, as it says Oatmeal & Chocolate on the bottle)...oh well. Definitely bitter, but that plays well with the sweetness from the chocolate, and covers up the fact that’s it’s 9%. I’d compare it to Rogue’s Chocolate Stout, slightly more bitter, and apparently stronger. Quite good. 1/09 - tried on tap for the first time...incredibly smooth...better than the bottle. tap-4.5, bottle-4.3"

Bottle. [thank you, boutip!]Sammy (12762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2008
Pours completely black with a fair, medium, chocolate-coloured head. Okay duration. Vinious aroma with roasted malts, lots of dark chocolate and a note of fresh ground coffee. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel, though not as fat as I’d expected. Rather sweet at first, lots of maltiness and a sugary touch. Then along comes lots of fabolous, dry cocoa and grainy dark chocolate notes. Some clear alcohol as well, but a fine, lingering aftertaste like when I eat 70% + chocolate. Very good, but there are definately better imperial stouts.
A great stout, thanks Radek Kliber. Good looks and lacey. Good aroma, a little ourness and hops. Balance in the taste, a sipper, a good bitterness. I will try this with friends again soon. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Stone Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout-22oz bottle-pours a disappearing brown head and black color. Aroma is dark malt-chocolate, rubber, bug spray, some dark fruit. Taste is bitter chocolate-dark malt, boozy, alcohol, tar, vinegar/acidic, woody. Not close to Stone IS. Thanks to jwc215 for sharing.

Bottle thanks to womencantsail. Pours black with minimal head. Aroma has notes of dark chocolate, dark grains and a hint of coffee and alcohol. Flavor has a strong dark chocolate note with underlying coffee and a bit of an alcohol bite at the finish. rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2017
22 oz bottle. Bottled 01/16/16. At the Konttori, Tampere, Finland.
The beer looks dark... dark brown color with a small tan head.
Alcohol, farmyard, licorice, roasted malt and booze... alcohol... booze in the aroma.
The flavor is booze, bitterness, roasted malt, darkness and strength. Boozy and dominating. Some chocolate pops out when the bottle warms up. Not really a classic from Stone.
