Hmmmm.,...
Poured deep, deep mahogany...almost black with a small cream colored head that melted to heavy lacing.
Aroma is malts and smoke...I didn't notice any hops. Dark Chocolate as the beer warms to room temp.
Mouthfeel...excellent! Creamy, rich, crisp carbonation, warmth following your swallow deep down your chest.
Taste...wow....first impression is sweet toasted malts followed by a slight hop bittering and then alcohol...no esthers at all. Dark chocolate fills your mouth. Smokiness gives it a sweet drying.
Aftertaste lingers a long time sort of bouncing between the malts and the hops. Not unbalanced at all..just that both can be descerned.
This is a very, very nice porter and it's moderate alcohol content makes it perfect for a long night talking or reading in front of the fire.

poured dark black with brown/ruby highlights. Quick rising head that faded into a large rocky "moon surface" look. At this point the beer reminds me of a glass of Coke (not a great thing IMO). After a light a whirl in my pint glass the head gets nice and creamy (much better!).

The nose is of weak chocolate, light smoke, dark ripe fruits.

Taste: chocolate hit me right away followed my a pleasant roasty smoke element, not an overpowering aspect at all. The smoke compliments the rest the malt in this beer instead of being too "in your face". The beer finishes with a coffee-like bitter bite followed by a tingly hop caress. This is a very good beer, especially around this time of year. The flavors seem to come with the season.

Mouthfeel is rich and full - especially a it warms. The carbonation is thick and prickly at first but fades a bit to give the beer more of a creamy texture. This porter is very similar in mouthfeel to many dry stouts I have enjoyed.

This beer is very drinkable, and pairs well with my kind of food; meat. Lots of flavors going on that keep you coming back. This has to be one of my favorite Stone releases and I'm sure glad it's available year-round.

If you haven't tried this one, give one a try soon. This is a great beer to start out with when venturing into smoked beer territory as well.

Cheers!

Pours a dark black, nice creamy head leaving great lacing. Smells of smoke, chocolate, some coffee, little dark fruit, little molasses. Tastes of roasted coffee malt with a nice subtle smoke flavor. Finishes very roasty and smoky, quite dry. Nice full mouthfeel, but not overbearing with the smokiness.

A great porter, very roasty with a nice smoke backbone. The smokiness luckily is not too overwealming, balances nicely with the roasted characteristics. A fantastic, rich and bold porter.

A - Dark brown complexion with a tan head, decent lacing.

S - Very appealing to nose! Dark malts, coffee, and smooth caramel.

T - A nice smoked flavor paired with dark fruits, coffee, and very drinkable.

M - Rich and near perfect carbonation for a porter. Full body with an almost sticky taste.

O - This is yet another great brew from Stone. I was very pleased to see this available in a growler from my local store HopCity and will most likely fill it up again! Recommended for anyone seeking a solid, drinkable porter.

Got this one on sale during Christmas holiday. A little bitter for my taste but it was good.
