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.
