Pours dark brown, rather thin, and very little foam.

The aroma is just wonderful, coffee, chocolate, and tons of vanilla.

Smoke, woody, vanilla, coffee, and tons of roasted notes.

Light-medium bodied, light carbonation, thin, smoky, bitter, sweet finish.

Overall, not my favorite porter, nor Stone brew, but tasty and worth a shot.

Pours a dark brown with red on the edges. Nice brown head that lasts pretty long. Looks great in the goblet.

Nose has roastiness, coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate. Very subtle but good aroma.

Different kind of porter. Coffee, roasted malt, vanilla is on the back end. Some smoke still coming through which is nice. A bit of a tangy finish which is nice and unexpected. Better than I expected.

A bit thin for a porter, slick and medium carbonation.

Really good. I've heard mixed reviews of this but I really like it. A nice take on the original smoked porter.
