4.08/5 rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Poured a very dark brown, almost black color. Creamy tan head about two and a half fingers worth. This head left very nice lacing.
Aroma: Smoky with a little vanilla.
Taste: Smoked malt, vanilla, a hint of chocolate. I picked up a little coffee flavor at the end. I think it has a very well balanced range of flavors.
Mouth feel: Seemed a bit thin for a smoked porter, but defiantly not a bad mouth feel.
Drinkability: I love this beer. It's very smooth.
This is one of the best beers I have had in a while. This is defiantly my favorite beer from Stone hands down.
Serving type: on-tap

First smoked beer that I've tried, but certainly not my first porter.
A: Poured into my Sierra Nevada branded hop tulip imperial pint glass. Only one finger of tawny head that quickly settles to a thin cap from an aggressive pour. Deep dark brown color that will let strong light through. I can see lots of floaties in the glass. Moderate lacing that less than expected. Looks scrumptious.
S: Strong peat , so strong that I'm having a hard time getting to the other aromas. Wood smoke, cocoa, milk chocolate, and some vanilla. Sweet and inviting. Smells like sitting around a fireplace, inside of an old cabin, in the forest, at Xmas time. I'm not getting the coffee that most other reviewers noted. A hint of dark fruits.
T: Once again strong peat that encompasses wood smoke and dark chocolate. Not nearly as sweet as it smells. No fruits to speak of. Strong charcoal. Reminds me of Irish Dry Stout, specifically Guinness Extra Stout. Starts bittersweet and quickly leads to a strong, drying bitterness that lasts well after swallowing.
M: Carbonation is perfectly moderate with a tight feel. Creamy. Tea-like drying is strong. Substantialness is spot-on.
O: Mind = Blown
Serving type: bottle
