Thanks for the input.  I guess making a stout without roasted barley, isn't really a stout. 

why not?  I gave you a great example of one that does not use RB  ???

Sorry, I haven't tried Sierra Nevada Stout.  I was making a simple observation.  I'm gonna try Carafa III and Chocolate malt, I think.

You need to see for yourself, but I was never pleased with carafa as the primary roast component for a stout or porter - lacking in bite.  there is a reason it is used in schwartzbier and black IPAs

Try the Deschutes Obsidian stout clone from the Can You Brew It show on the Brewing Network. Lots of Black Patent, no chocolate and just a slight touch of roasted barley.  I've made it and it's very good.  If you can't find the recipe on line I'll send it to you.

Actually, my wife is blonde and her maiden name is Stout.  So, I guess I have had a blonde stout!! ;D
