Building on the classic Oyster Stout idea, how about a straight-up Seafood Stout: prawns, crabs, lobster, mussels, clams, with a nice dollop of horseradish and cayenne added to the last 15 minutes of the boil. Maybe some lemon and capers.

... dammit, there really needs to be a "zombie" icon when there's a gap of 18 months between any 2 posts in a thread.

Raspberry Zebra Mocha Stout.

Mix of powdered white chocolate and cocoa in boil
Secondary on raspberries.
Cold pressed dark roasted(Italian) coffee at bottling.

No Idea if it would work but it would be really different.

Wow that sounds really good... using a hefe yeast for a chocolate stout recipe. Nice!

I have this coffee substitute called Kafree Roma. It tastes kinda like coffee but it's ingredients are roasted barley, roasted malt barley, roasted chicory, roasted rye (Cafix is another but adds figs and red beet extract).

So maybe I'd do a Beet Your Roasted Chico-Rye Stout I would actually roast some of the rye, if not all of it. Maybe roast some flaked rye? I guess if I use too much then it'd be in a hybrid category. And you can get pre-roasted chicory root online. Who knows maybe I would use a sugar beet (dried?) to get some different flavors and sugars. It's dry mass is 15–20% sucrose by weight!

I know that this recipe isn't unheard of in a Stout, san Rye, but nobody mentioned it yet (that I saw).

The Vanilla Cherry Stout had 5# of Montmorency cherries/juice from Door County, WI. I had made a vanilla extract with vodka/beans, but that didn't come through as much as I would've liked. I made that beer 3 years ago, so honestly I can't remember the amounts on that.

I just started brewing and am a big lover of stout...I'm also a chef by trade and one of my favorite chocolate combos is dark chocolate and lime. Wonder if kaffir lime leaves in the last 10 min of boil would do the trick?

Have a dark chocolate oatmeal stout with cayenne in the fermentation chamber, going to use vanilla bean in the secondary. Calling it Ole Mole.

Bottled last night. It has a much higher ABV because of the coconut water I guess. About 6.5%, smells funny, not like haha funny. We'll see, gonna let it sit for a while. I used the muntons kremeyx or whatever it's called, a head retention priming sugar (looked like DME to me). Hoping for the best, expecting the worse.
