22 oz bottle with best by date of 7-24-12

A- Beautiful dark mahogany. Crystal clear around the margins. One finger mocha head that fades to a persistent cap and lots of lacing clinging to the glass all the way.

S- Biscuity roast malt with a mild smoked peat aroma, a bit like the background of a good scotch. Very faint herbal hops.

T- The malt is up front, sweet and smoky givving way to some mild bitterness and dark chocolate. Finish is slightly dry with a little mineral astringency..

M- Full bodied and smooth with sublte carbonation.

O- Can't beat if for the price. An interesting combination of smoke and malt. It would go well with a fruit and cheese course or a selection of chocolate.

Bomber poured into a snifter

A- Dark brown, borderline black with red around the edges. A one finger tan head. Head retention is lacking but has nice lacing.

S- A good bit of chocolate up front followed by a subtle smokiness. A fruity bitterness from the hops. A nice smelling porter.

T- A bit of chocolate and roasty malts up front. The smokeyness comes in behind the beer and leaves a pleasant aftertaste. A fruity sweetness as well. This beer also has a dry woody character to it.

M- This is a very smooth porter and pretty easy drinking. It has a feel that makes me think there's lactose sugar in it. Moderate bitterness, good carbonation, full feel.

O- Great porter, all there is to it.

Wow this was terrible. Looked ok, not much aroma, mild roast little hint of smoke. Taste like a 6% black ipa, piney grapefruit. The bottle listed several flavors that were not present. Mouthfeel was thin and watery, not pleasant.

Rating this to the black IPA style it would be average. I don't know how this is called a porter, no roast, no chocolate, no coffee, no caramel, no porter characteristics at all. This is my second bad purchase from Wegemans Malvern in the last 2 weeks, have to stop going there.

What a disappointment, my first from Stone. Lousy beer. Don't know wtf happened here. Waste of money.
