4.13/5  rDev +2.7%

A- nice black body with a slight mahogany color when put up against the light. Also has a thick light brown head.

S- prominent charcoal/smokey smell at the nose. Also a great underlying smell of oak.

T-a wonderful oak flavor hits your palate. As it goes down you get strong smokey and bitter hop flavors, then it cleans off nicely. Very smooth for the style.

M-nice heavy body with mild carbonation.

O-what a great porter. Nice smokey flavors, basically everything you would want for this style.

22 oz brown bomber. Awesome screen printed Stone label as always with this brewery. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A - darkest of brown splashed with touches of deep ruby. Tan to beige head that pours thick and fluffy leaving behind a fine display of lace. Good stick.

S - sweet dark malts with a slight smokiness to it. Hints of coffee along with a whiff of chocolate and a light touch of vanilla. More whiffs of smoked grain deep within.

T - rich chocolate with roasted coffee notes. A small taste of dark fruit creeps up through a steady flor of mild sweetness. A good dose of smoked malts on top of everything. Burnt like malt and some hops create a nice semi bitterness in the finish.

M - medium bodied and delicious. This is on the thick side and very drinkable.

O - awesome porter from stone. Has the porter 'it' factor with a stone style. I don't think they make an average beer. I could drink this any time. Definitely in my list of top 3 American porters. It's that good.

Never had a smoked beer before. This one was a reasonable price, so here we are. Pours motor oil deep-brown-to-black, though with decent amount of fizz on the sides, head like root beer.

Smells like dark chocolate & raisin, maybe some licorice. Not sure what wood they smoked the grains with, and it's subtle, but it reminds me of a cross between oak and cherry. Enough sniffin'...

The dark fruit comes up much more on the swig than the nose, while chocolate still present though playing a surprising amount of background. Sweeter than I expected also. Doesn't go down as thick as I expected, surprisingly refreshing and mellow overall.

For something grabbed on a whim, the verdict is: freakishly delicious. I would buy a 40 of this if I could. Seriously.
