I mentioned this in another thread, but here is the experimental Double Chocolate Oatmeal Stout. The beer turned out great and the chocolate comes through nicely. It's dark but not stout dark, if you know what I mean. This is only for a 1 gallon batch and it's pretty involved.

Grains:
4 oz Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats, roasted (1 SRM)
3.4 oz Buckwheat, roasted (45 SRM)

1 lbs 5 oz. Brown Rice Syrup (60 min)
3.5 oz Dark Candi Syrup (60 min)
2.6 oz Blackstrap Molasses (60 min)
.1 oz Chinook, pellet 11.4% (60 min)
.02 oz Chinook, pellet 11.4% (30 min)
.04 oz Fuggles, pellet 4.8% (15 min)
1 tsp Yeast Nutrient (15 min)
1.25 oz Maltodextrin (5 min)
S-04 SafAle Yeast

Chocolate Flavor Extract*** Primary
1 Vanilla Beans, split, chopped (Secondary, 7 days)

***I kinda guessed how much of this I used. I was trying to use 1/5th of a dram but who knows how much went into it. If you were to do a 5 gallon batch, a full dram would work. Some posts earlier in the thread I mentioned these extracts and you'll find some links to the site...I think

tried the blackstrap molasses SMaSH tonight. It's interesting to say the least. Actually not as terrible as I imagined it would be. Surprisingly stout like. Looks like mud, doesn't have much of a head. Molasses is understandably a very present flavor, but is unexpectedly not overpowering. Quite chocolaty. Definitely will is on the will use list.

I agree, the american brown ale I did with 1 lb of blackstrap molasses had a slightly chocolaty taste to it- one that I would say the blackstrap lended. And boy was that beer a lot darker than the original! I'll keep using this stuff though, I like what it lends.

Good stuff guys, I am going to have to get my hands on some next time I do a stout. Sounds like a very small amount of coffee mixed with blackstrap and dark candi may give us something like what we want to achieve.

Sounds like a plan. You tried any of the beers I sent you yet? Would love you to write up full reviews if you have time.

Where did you procure your Brown Rice Syrup? I've been looking online, and can't seem to find anything in bulk, or local.

Rice syrup solids (basic the 'dme' version of brs) are available from Northern Brewer and other homebrew supplies.

I was able to get brown rice syrup in my grocery store. It was in the whole foods/organic section. I guess some people use it as a sweetener...

If it helps any, the brand I get is Lundberg Farms (and it is tagged as gluten free).

THe only time I have come close to a stout color is when I added 4 oz of coffee, unsweetend dark cocoa powder, and pretty much burned a few oz of buckwheat and seeped that before the boil. No sorghum tho which is pretty cool!!
