Pint from Naja's Place
Very dark with a small head for a porter, tastes better when it is not so cold
Nice bite to it after the swallow
Goes very good with desseet, similar to a stout, which surprised me, this is not case for most porters
Really want to try the brandy barrel aged if they ever have it at Stone again
Serving type: on-tap

One of the "1001 Beers You Must Taste Before You Die" -- #42 of the ones I've reviewed here.
Pour is decent but nothing outstanding, although props to the long-lasting head on this. Typical nose of coffee and cocoa, this time with a hint of smoke. The mouthfeel is pretty routine outside of a wonderfully lingering finish of liquid smoke. Tastes in general, though, are the usual hopped up coffee/cocoa, with a slight hint of smoke dancing around in the background.
Good, not great beer. The smoking is distinctive but that's the only distinctive thing about it, without that this is a decent, but bog-standard porter. Adding the smoke does kick this up a little and it's worth a try as a result, but this is hardly the definitive take on this idea.
