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.

A - Dark brown/black with a thin tan head

S - Nice dark chocolate and roasted malt smells.

T - Nice warm roast with some chocolate, and the smokiness helps smooth it out. Definitely not overpowering.

M - Almost silky, very nice

D - Very good for the type, never felt too heavy.

In traditional stone fashion, this is a big beer done a little differently than everyone elses. Overall impression is of their 6th Anniversary Porter with some smoke thrown in to add complexity. Poured a dark brown with red highlights and a creamy light brown head. Bitterness was a little surprising to find, but once you get over the shock, it starts to make sense in the beer. Sweet malt gives way to slightly more than a hint of smoke. Nice medium body.
