A: poured from the bomber into my tumbler. big fat 2.5 finger head, light tan colored, hops flavor in the foam.
deep dark caramel color. head settled to a minimum film and left nice lacing....
S: Nice but really cant put a name to this - more to the bitter side than sweet. I do pick up a note of the alcohol in the smell.
T: what I get here is bittersweet. chocoloate but not sweet at all, the bitter does come thru but I cant' really ID it as hops.
Liking this a whole lot.
M: maybe a bit undercarbonated. nice thick mouthfeel. Alcohol does NOT come thru here.
D: approacing perfect. Relativly LOW ABV would allow for repeat servings For Sure.
thanks again to Stone Brewery.

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
