This started well, as an interesting and complex dark beer, but it sort of fell off toward the end and lost interest, when a good dark beer will just be getting started. Odd ANZUShophunter (769) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2017
Had on tap beside the 2016 version. Reddish/brown almost cola-like appearance with roasted earthy malt aroma. Malt-driven taste as well: caramel, molasses and a bit of smoke in the finish. Sharper taste than the aged version CurlyJoe (461) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2017
Dark and fizzy head, like cola. Sweet chocolate coffee aroma, followed through with taste. Mild bitterness to round it out. Decent dark beer. RoJo28 (128) - - AUG 10, 2017
A bit rugged around the edges with a smooth centre, this is like a burnt marshmallow, a mountain cabin with an open fire roaring inside, or a woollen jumper

From a 500ml bottle on 4/7/2017. Pours dark brown with little in the way of head. Has a light caramel malt aroma. The flavours are light and primarily sweet, with chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Finishes with a mild roasty bitterness. A pleasant drinking dark beer TedE (1591) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 25, 2017
500ml bottle into tulip. 25th June, when the days are really short! Dark, really dark with a thin frothy head. Nose is pleasantly malty but faint. Full-bodied, taste is roasted cocoa. Finish is long and slightly smoky with sweet notes. Very smooth and delicious like expensive dark chocolate. KeefOz (2026) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUN 21, 2017
Draught at Hoo Ha Bar, Brisbane. Poured an opaque black (even under strong light) with a 5mm light tan dense foamy head that retained very well and laced very well. Carbonation low and slow with rare coarse bubbles. Aroma nicely of roasted flavours with coffee, cocoa and sweet vanilla prominent. Taste very flavoursome with roasted coffee, chocolate and vanilla/chicory plus hints of dried fruits. Medium to heavy body. Very smooth and creamy with a slight sweetness and low bitterness on the finish. Nice. mkel07 (6604) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2017
170617. On tap at a Tipplers Tap. This years version of Stone Beer is a cracker. Dark and roasty it fills the mouth with a caramel and vanilla flavour. Reasonably full bodied with a long strong finish. explosivedog (2004) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 14, 2017
On tap at Brewers Cooperative. Pours black. Charcoal, caramel, lots of apricots and peach. Really tasty.
