Served in a wellington beer glass.

Appearance: Almost opaque black-brown, not too bubbly (good thing) with a tan head rising to maybe a 1/4" settles to nothing after a sip.

Smell: Light chocolate, very bland and nothing to wow for.

Taste: Little bitter not a bad thing. Hints of chocolate,almost floral like and light yeast

Mouth: Med-heavy carbonation. Tasty.

Overall: Reminds me a of "black IPA", well crafted and easy to like, only thing missing is a good football game. Salud!

I don't normally drink porters, let alone smoked ones. I drink stouts, and usually when I go into a dark beer I usually akin them to stouts by default.

But I don't get much of the coffee/chocolate notes. I do get toasty malt and the smokiness, no doubt. The most surprising part is how mellow it all is; there isn't an overbearing hop characteristic here. Its just a rich warming brew, exceptionally smooth.

I'll need to try this again cold, but warm, it ain't bad at all. Surprising, since I don't normally drink dark beers warm.

Pair this with something equally rich. This would go perfectly with some pulled pork, no doubt. Something spicy-sweet would really work with the smoked flavor I get here.

All in all, a perfect BBQ Beer to those with good taste, and the best porter I've had so far.

Stone Smoked Porter: Yup, it’s a smoked porter. You can see a hint of color if you hold this brew up to the light. The head is thin and off-white. The aroma is very earthy. Lots of malt tones come through in the flavor, but stay balanced and not too sweet. The finish brings on the smoky flavors and a bit of bitter aftertaste. Overall, I am not a big smoked porter fan, but if you like this style the Stone rendition lives up to its namesake.
