Default Let's hear your "crazy stout" ideas!

Every winter my neighboring homebrew club has a "crazy stout" competition. It's definitely *not* BJCP, but more like a chili contest. Beers are judged based on flavor, aroma, etc as well as creativity. This is a fun one since these are almost always one-off "shot in the dark" beers. Previous entries have included:

-Spruce imperial stout
-PB&J sweet stout
-Cherry vanilla sweet stout
-Cardamom stout
-Saison stout (think "black saison")
-Blackberry peppercorn stout
-Stout with 40% smoked malt

What would you brew?

I was thinking about a Stout Lager, does such a thing exist? someone must have a black lager, but I have never heard of one.

And possibly a milk chocolate, Also loved a recent post about a Nutella stout, been thinking about this too.

Nothing says "earthy" more than earthworms. They make yeast go nuts.

Black lagers: Schwarzbier, Baltic Porter (usually)

I see what you're saying, though.

I'm brewing a rye pumpkin stout this weekend.

It's basically an oatmeal stout with 10% flaked rye and some pumpkin spices (allspice, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg) added into the secondary. I'll let you know how it turns out!
