This is where stone really shines. It's too bad Arrogant Bastard gets all the attention, because their non-simcoe beers are truly terrific.

Fairly old bomber (around a year?) that's been sitting in my fridge was screaming out to me to drink it on this blustry February night. Dark in the pint glass, but when held up to a light, one can see tons of ruby. Beer is quite clear. Picturesque lacing. Drinking this at well over 55 degrees F.

Roasted chocolate on the nose. A little bit of smoke, nothing crazy.

Very smooth roasted malts on the palate. Hint of warm chocolate, balanced with some roasted notes. What I love most about this is that a company who made their name by big aggressive hoppy beers can make a balanced beer like this. Hope are still there, but it's not SCREAMING Simcoe like Ruination... As good as it is, there is only just a faint hint of smoke. I'd personally expect more from a "smoked porter." But with that said, it's still positively delicious.

Sublime mouthfeel. Just roasty and yummy. Meal in a glass.

Super drinkable. 5.9% ABV? Amazing flavor period. Stupidly drinkable.

Pours very dark brown. fluffy tan head, with decent retention,and some lacing.Smell is of roasted malts, with some hops in the mix. Body is light to medium. Not much carbionation. Taste is smooth, and rich. Smokey, with some well balanced mix of malts and hops. Nice sharp finish. Good stuff!!
