look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Served in a chilled tulip glass.

-Appearance 3.0: Pours out a nice, jet-black color so indicative of porters and stouts. Creamy and small head. Somewhat translucent and not thick, inky black.

-Smell 3.5: Smells very much like a porter, but has a subdued bouquet. Strange, for a "smoked" beer, I do not smell much smokiness.

-Taste 3.00: Front is slightly sour which leads to the middle which is very nice: toasted grains, but the grains in question still maintain a certain "grassiness" that is indicative of lighter beers. I also get a huge hit of that evil bleu cheese hop that I despise. Nasty. Finish is all hops and smoke and is pleasing. I definitely taste the high alpha Columbus hops here, swirling in the background, fighting against the bleu cheese. Aftertaste is long and dry and smoky. Mixed bag.

-Mouthfeel 3.5: Good mouthfeel. Smooth and silky. Spot on for this style.

-Overall 3.25: This is a good drinking beer, but I imagine it would overpower any food you consume with it. My opinion is that this is an okay beer as far as taste goes, but that Stone needs to upgrade several elements of this beer. Room for improvement in several areas. Like getting rid of the bleu cheese hop.

S: coffee, chocolate, earthy, slight smokiness, toffee, roastiness,r

T: chocolate, coffee, roastiness, smokey, bacon, slight vanilla, charcoal, earthy, toffee, bitter chocolate. as it warms, dark fruits and chocolate are prominant, with some licorice undertones.

M: medium/full bodied, not syrupy but enough sugar to hang around and coat your mouth. finish is sweet and toasty/bitter. really delicious beer

O: I love this beer, it's such a great beer and only 6%, so much flavor packed in. Great to cook with too!

Man, I haven't had this one in years, yet I have a bomber in front of me. Oh, what to do...

Served in a Port City tulip.

A: Mean head, mocha color so to speak, sticky, and with a very dark brew below it.... almost black even.

S: Like toasted, slightly burned milk chocolate. Really nice and a totally breathe of fresh air from many porters out there.

T: One of the all-time standards and I see why: Toasty, but not too. Yep... I can see how this appeals to the dark beer loving masses. Milky and candy-like, roasty goodness for sure.

M: Snot-like enough, and infinitely drinkable, with lots of lacing and a welcome departure from most of the porters I've had here recently.

O: One of the the all-time greats for most people. But for me, it was really, really good.
