Served in straight pint glass. Poured black, darker than some stouts and certainly darker than most Porters, with about 1/2 inch of light tan head that had low retention and some lacing.

The aroma featured rich malts supporting the even, balanced (there's a word rarely used about Stone) smokiness. There was just a trace of hops poking through in the background. The taste was surprisingly crisp, well-defined malts providing the base for the just-right amount of of smoke and that hint of hops.

The body was good, solid and even. As usual with smoke beers, drinkability depends on your tolerance for the smoke. I found this to be much easier to drink than most of the style, I might even have 2 in a row.

Overall, a very nice beer, worth trying when you see it.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into some kind of beer pint glass. The color is black with a little amber at the edges. There is a thin light tan head.

The aroma is mildly sweet and chocolatey.

The taste is bitter sweet with a hefty dose of chocolate. The finish is a bit drier and a little crisp.

The mouthfeel is light to medium with a good prickly carbonation.

Tasty but not as smokey as one would hope.
