Popped open a bottle of this after a weekend of wedding planning and 10 hours worth of driving. It's been sitting in my fridge for a few months now, so I figured this would be a good time to crack this one, especially now that it's readily available in Georgia now.

Poured into my Boulevard chalice. Pours a dark brown. Looks a little watery and has almost no head at all.

Smells of dried fruit; prunes, raisins, bit of alcohol and roasted malts.

Tastes of roasted malts, a hint of raisins, almost port-like, but much more subdued.

A slightly watery mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.

A pretty drinkable porter. Not my favorite style of beer but this is pretty exceptional.

As a long time fan of Stone ipas, I was very excited to try their smoked porter, it did not dissappoint. This offering pours a very near black color with a thick tan head that quickly dissipates and leaves a nice film and lacing. The nose is robust and roasty. Lots of coffee, dried fruits, leather, and a slight smoky quality. Not as abrasive as in some smoked beers. The flavor confirms the nose. Smooth and rich and roasty. Coffee, vanilla, and chocolate abound and are accented by the slight smokiness. Mouthfeel is rich and luxurious; almost more stout like than porter. This is an excellent beer. Stone does a great job of balancing the flavors without making the smoke too prevalent. Well done!

A: Pours a beautiful garnet with two fingers incredibly dense, fluffy mocha head. Head retention is stellar. Lacing is also stellar. Beautiful looking pint.

S: Immediately the smoke presence is known. Charred oak, chicory, coffee, and cacao are all present in the nose. Also present is a bit of citric hops.

T: Again, the smoke is a powerful component in the process. Layers of it permeate throughout the tasting. Sweet chocolate malts are met immediately with an oily smokiness which is quickly overtaken by a flash of citric hoppiness. Finishes dry with an awesome roasted aftertaste of americano, chicory and cocoa powder.

M: Carbonation is subdued, which is great for the style. However, the body is just a touch on the thin side for expressing such dark and aggressive flavors.

O: Goddamn amazing. This is a beer that I've been eyeing for a few weeks. Glad to have finally tried it.

Yet another great brew from the people at Stone, who have yet to let me down and are now my all time favorite brewery. This one poures a very dark brown, almost black with a small head that leaves decent lace around the glass. The smell reminded me of the Arrogant Bastard Ale but with a hint of smoke, chocolate and coffee added to it. The taste is right on: little bit of hop bite at the beginning, then the smoked flavor comes in along with a hint of malt and chocolate, and finishes with a crisp coffee flavor. This one would go great with some bar-b-q'd burgurs....awesome brew!
