wow! what can I say? this beer lives up to its name as it is pretty smoky in both senses of smell and taste. the look is reminiscent of a stout. the foamy head dissipates sooner rather than later, but that could depend on how cold/warm this porter is in room tempurature. in this case, I poured it into a frosted mug.

according to some, just the name porter gives a bitter aftertaste in mind. this is not the case at all. this exceptional porter actually is quite creamy smooth and sweet. it gives a full taste and goes down smoothly.

available in Bevarages & More.

Look: Dark brown in color with a lighter ring of brown at the bottom of the glass. 1 inch tan foamy head and great retention some lace would have liked to see more

Smell: Coffee and bitter chocolate in the foreground and just a hint of smoke in the background

Taste: A nice amount of smoke upfront that reminds me of a campfire. The back end carries a nice amount of coffee and finishes with the perfect amount of bitter chocolate

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation. Slightly dry on the finish

Overall: Probably the best "smoked" beer I have ever had and probably on the market. Right amount of smoke that blends perfectly with the other flavors.

Poured into my trusty pint glass. Classic American Porter but smoked. Brownish to near blackish beer. Chocolaty and coffeeish beer smoked. The smell was so intriging and the smoked taste led me back to this beer. Smooth beer. Simpily irresistable!!!@!

Last week I paired a big bottle of this fine porter with some steaks that my mother-in-law grilled. It reinforced the meal nicely.

A-Beautiful, in the space where brown and black meet; one finger head, no lacing

S-Roasted malt, mild hops, chocolate, mesquite

T-BBQ meat smoked for some time, chocolate and coffee

M-Smooth, slight snap of bubbles

O-This will be a go to porter for me at any grilled red meat experience; the smoke action is really terrific, hats off to Stone for another great one

Pours a syrupy brown only to settle in the glass as super dark brown, nearly black, excellent lookin' porter. Firm thick, inch tall tannish cocoa colored head that fades slowly leaving hazy thin placed sheets of crispy looking lace all over the glass. Absolutely gorgeous!

Aroma is nice steady sweet chocolate/cocoa, very smooth, rich, and a great smokey richness of roasted deep chocolate and black malts. Even a slight coffeeness noted. Yum!

Taste is quite exceptional, excellently done of smooth sweet chocolate up front, tones of roastyness settle in quickly of smoked black malts. Rich, luscious, and a super interior hop bitterness of mild abode that picks up in the finish with some more roasty smokeyness and hoppy, earthed bitterness and slight dryness of coffee and twinged chocolate late. Good full feel, solid creamyness all through and an excellent lingering finish of slight smoke, what a shock; not.
The drinkability on this is amazing - smooth, rich, creamy, and easy. Thank goodness it comes in the 22oz bomber to help keep the glass full longer, at least for a little while anyway.

Big thanks to Gusler for the samples!!

I don't normally drink a lot of porters because I prefer hoppy beers and generally think that porters/stouts aren't as complex. This beer made me change my mind. This porter has a very a very dynamic full body malt character. I liked the smoky coffee character. All together a great beer. I will be looking to try more of the same.
