A: Black colored with little light passing though sides. One finger of off-white foam. Good sticky lacing throughout entire glass.

S: Both glasses glasses smelled primarily of brown sugar, dark chocolate, and soy sauce.

T: Aftertaste has similar taste to the burnt part of beef with barbeque sauce, sweet yet bitter. Semi-sweet malt taste that leads into a bitter smokey taste that doesn't linger. The warmer glass tasted much better in my opinion and had some extra spiciness.

M: A bit on the dry side with medium-light carbonation. On the thin side.

O:Solid porter with diverse flavor profile. One of my go-to beers.. Cheers!

Bottle poured into mug.

A...very dark brown with absolutely no light coming through when held up to it. Thin head with nice retention and good lacing.

s...faint smell of cocoa and maybe some dark roasted coffee beans.

T...nice dark chocalate with some bitter cocoa mixed into a nice sweet malt. A very flavorful balance with a clean finish. Very little aftertaste.

M...low carbonation, thick and creamy.

O...very pleasurable beer. I intended to smoke a cigar with this brew but that didn't happen. I liked the beer alot however and will definitely buy again. I think this will pair great with a really good maduro.

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.
