A - dark coffee with a white, slightly tanned, two finger head that stuck around.

S - sour, off-hay like.

T - the taste began with a water nose. I tasted nothing else but water. This was followed by a burning sensation in the my throat. No spice, just burn. The burn was something similar to swallowing pepper spray. The finish was dirty and pestered my palate for quite some time. As Ralph from The Simpsons said, "It tastes like burning".

M - far too watery for an acceptable Porter .

D - I think I've made my point.

Pint at Naja's Place

One of the worst beers I have had this summer

The whole spicy and dark beer thing just does not work

Got to really be in the mood or just have an odd taste preference to like this one

It tastes normal, then all of sudden there is a sour acidic taste like a jalapeno or something


Even the bartender said it was bad, but I tried it anyways

Stay away by all means

Color- Chestnut brown. Full head.

Aroma- very smokey.

Taste- far too smokey with a tiny hint of pepper on the back end. The smoke overwhelms this brew. I'd rename this one in German (since Rauch or smoke beers generally originate from Germany) "Rauchbeir mit ein bischen Chilipfeffer" instead of Stone's label. Surprisingly subpar for Stone, especially considering the standard Smoked Porter is less smokey and better balanced than this variant. I'm a Stone fan and even toured the Stone brewery last time I was in San Diego. So my rating does not reflect a bias against Stone. I'm just disappointed in this specific brew.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted on 5/31/2014.
