Out of the 22oz.brown bomber pours a blackish-brown heft of a porter. Light brown bubbling, foamy head rises up, then eventually subsides to some nice, sticky lacing.

Smokey oak malt up front with chocolate and coffee coming through and blending in a mildly sweet manner...ahh. After it warms a bit, faint aroma of the hops sneek through, as well as some alcohol.

Initially dark malt, which is smoky and faintly sweet, fill the mouth. It becomes coffee and chocolaty rich in flavor till the smokyness comes back in, with a nice bitter hop, to finish it off. A sturdy, well balanced porter with a complexity all it's own, smoky to boot.

Full bodied with a smooth, lofty mouthfeel and a pleasant ABV make this a Porter lover's "must try". It's unique and goes down smoothly...cheers!

Forms a tan head. Black color lightening to a very dark shade around the edges.

Smells smoky, but not overwhelmingly so, alot like a regular porter. Lots of dark malts. Hints of sweet dark sugars, coffee, chocolate. The smoke is well balanced with the other characteristics of the beer.

Carbonation is a little less than average. Mouthfeel is on the thin side, but not bad.

Taste is of dark roasted malt with some hop bitterness. Hints of coffee and dark unsweet chocolate also present. Finishes with a lingering bitterness.

Appearance- Black with ruby highlights. Thick tan head. Good retention. Decent lace.

Smell- Strong, rich malt. Toast. Smokiness. Faint fruity hops in background.

Taste- Nice, smoky malt in the foreground. Rich chocolate and black coffee. Some nuttiness. Very little evident hops.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full. Nice carbonation.

Drinkability- An excellent drinker. Rich, but versatile. Would be great with some grilled steak or burgers.

From a 22 oz bomber purchased at Mr. Bones in Greensburg.

Pours a near black with an off-white head that has decent retentions. Lacing appears along the the glass and lingers well.

Smell of roasted malts comes through immediately. coffee and some chocolate is also there. Hops give the beer a slight floral aroma. Smokiness is barely detectable through smell.

Tastes of dark coffee with a slightly bitter finish. There is just the right amount of hops in this one. The smoke flavor is not distracting as in other brews and compliments this version of porter very well.

Mouthfeel is excellent. Medium bodied with not too much carbonation. This brew clings to the palate just long enough to get the right amount of smokiness and malts.

At 5.9% abv, this is one of the more sessionable Stone offerings I have had. I could easily have a couple of these with no problems. This would be a good beer to pair with smoked meats and game. This is a natural choice for when I am in the mood for something other than a hop bomb.
