Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Samuel Adams pint glass. Purchased at Wakefield Liquors in Wakefield, RI.

A- Pours a very dark brown body with a somewhat thin, light mocha head that reduces to a thin white film.

S- I'm really straining to smell something here. I'm not sure if it's my nose today as this is the first beer I'm reviewing, but I'm getting very faint coffee, toasted malt notes with some dark fruit undertones.

T- There we go. Upfront, a rich smoked wood flavor that is reminiscent of smoked barbecue (in the best way possible). I also get dark chocolate and black coffee notes. Finishes with a bitter, smokey, toasted malt flavor. Delicious and balanced taste.

M- Thick oily body, low carbonation. Creamy.

Overall this was a very enjoyable brew. The smokiness was not overdone, just enough to enjoy it. Complex and balanced. The only thing missing was a side of hickory smoked ribs. Find this and try it.

My first foray into the big Stone family of Porter's. Needless to say, I was not left disappointed as this beer packed all of the punch and flavor I've become accustomed to with Stone beers. This beer is jet black, offering no discernible light through, and has a thin tan head that lasts until the very last drop. A sweet feel on the tongue is followed by a strong smokey flavor that delivers an uncompromising finish on what the name implies. Would I buy this again? Absolutely. Do I regret missing out on their chipotle porter? Absolutely.

The Beers of California


Freshness Date: None

A: Black with no light penetrance when held up. Ample khaki head with great retention.

S: Cocoa and sugary sweetness with a slight burnt edge to the nose.

T: Smooth mocha goodness with a slight smoky, burnt finish. Leafy bitterness in the middle.

M: Milky smooth with some interesting chewiness. Minimal to moderate carbonation.

O: Overall a subdued, round palate with no particular strengths or weaknesses. I loved the subtleties of this brew but expected more intensity and strength of flavors especially from a Stone brew.
