Pours nearly black with hints of reddish brown around the edges. It's topped with a fat tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. The nose is strong on the coffee from the dark malts, and there's a less-than-strong woodsmoke aroma. The taste basically mirrors the aroma. This is my first smoked beer, and while I do like the flavor it adds, it really isn't very pronounced. I somehow expected Stone to pack this one full of smoke flavor. There's also a certain brightness right on the front of the tongue that I didn't quite expect. I suppose its due to the hops, which aren't too prominent in the nose or taste otherwise. The mouthfeel is quite smooth but a litter thinner than I'd hoped. Very drinkable.

This beer was a bit of a let down for me, but only relative to my expectations. It's a solid, delicious beer that I enjoyed it quite a bit and would buy again.

Pours a deep deep dark brown, clear, but little light gets through. Tan head that is fluffy and reduces to a ring with islands. Smell of toasted malts and a bit of smoke, but not smokey like a rauchbier. Taste is smoke and malts with a long lingering aftertaste not unlike an Islay Scotch. Carbonation is right and mouthfeel is smooth. This is a great brew but a sipper not a chugger!

Pours a dark brown color almost black, with a nice tan to light brown head. In the aroma, faint smokiness, roastiness, and maltiness. In the taste, a small smoke presence and nice roasted coffee. A small hop bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry smoke and roast in the aftertaste. A nice presence of smoke and nice hint of coffee and small hop.

I was pleased to find this on tap at the Tap House in Hampton, as it is one of the few "regular" Stone offerings I've never tried, along with the Levitation. Served in a standard pint glass.

A - Dark coloration, low bit of froth, decent retention, laced rather well.

S - Malty aroma, sweet and smokey.

T - Well they really did smoke this porter, it has some significant smoke characteristics that are damn tasty. Very well rounded, sweet dark malts with the signature bite of Stone hop content.

M - Medium body, low carbonation, smooth going down with a hoppy dry finish.

D - Pretty good overall, definitely more sessionable than most of Stone's offerings, and that's not a bad thing. Balanced and tasty brew, one that I will revisit and recommend.
