Glass - Nonic
A - A very dark, hazy porter with little light shining through. It produced a 2-3 finger off white head on a somewhat gentle pour. Head looks dense, and head retention seems to be great. I got some spots left on my glass but no lacing.
S - The first thing I pick up is smokey leather like notes. Deep roasted coffee bean, mild charcoal. It definitely doesn't smell like it would taste too sweet.
T - Roasted coffee beans, leather, charcoal, woody, earthy. Mild sweetness in the form of soft caramel like flavors. It finishes with mild, leafy hop like notes, mild bitterness, soft dryness, and a mild pepper like heat that builds up in your throat and the back of your tongue.
M - Medium bodied with moderate crispness and a bit of a smooth feel.
O - Wow, just like the original Smoked Porter, I really enjoyed this one. I loved how smokey, and leathery the aroma and taste were. It wasn't overly sweet or carbonated, and the appearance was great as well. Just a fantastic Porter to me.
Stone might have just started bottling this fine brew, cause I've never seen it in a bottle before. Pick it up and give it try if you can. Cheers!
