4.33/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Consumed 7/14/12

Note: 2010 bottle, aged by accident

Appearance: Dark brown, clear around the edges, nicely-sized light tan head, fades to an above-average ring, keeps a little, creamy cap, leaves some lacing

Smell: Chocolate and char, in moderation - dry baker's chocolate and dark chocolate - smoked and burnt malts, nicely balanced with the other aromas - smells richer than a 5.9% would suggest

Taste: Nicely balanced and flavorful - burnt and roasted flavors - smoked malts and dark chocolate, basically, but it's more complex - some coffee, some sweetness from caramel malts - mildly bitter, very drinkable

Mouthfeel: Medium body, very smooth, a slight bite from the smoke, but ultimately easy to drink

Overall: Classic

I've had this in the past, but I never sat down with a bottle to review it. This is a great porter. Its smokey characteristics are brilliantly well done. I don't feel like I am drinking an ash tray or chewing on a burnt hamburger (win). Stone's standard lineup consistently sets a very high standard that few other breweries meet.

Pours coffee black, with a slightly reddish cast like a dark chocolate when held up to the light. Decent tan head (1 inch or above) that laves good lacing though melts quickly.

Immediate dark chocolate/espresso notes with a slightly cherry aroma. Slightly oily mouth feel leaving a generally pleasant bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very smokey, but not overpowering.

This beer is such an easy drinker that I polish off a bottle before I even notice what I'm doing. A solid tasty dark brew.

Bottle into tulip.
Best before 08/27/2012

A- Dark brown, almost black pour with a two finger, soapy, sticky light tan head. Lacing is clinging in gobs around the glass.

S- Dark bitter chocolate, dark roasted coffee, a slight floral hop bitterness with a small amount of char, and tobacco. I'm not a real smoke beer fan and this one I feel is something you can use as a "beginners guide to smoke beers" I liked it so much last year I had to get another bottle.

T- Dark coffee up front, than an automatic smoke hits you. It's reminiscent of burnt toast and camp fire smoke. Not as sweet as the nose leads on but there is a bit of vanilla and bitter chocolate in the back end.

M- Medium bodied, slightly creamy. Definite chewiness to it.

O- I really do enjoy this beer. I think mostly because the smoke is not right in your face like a rauchbier. It's complimented by the dark malts and the other flavors.
