Pours a dark, dark brown with a modest light brown head. Aroma is of sweet, strong coffee, with a really small hint of smoke. Rich and full-bodied with a creamy, but crisp mouthfeel. Chocolately, coffee-like malt with a hint of smoke. Hop bitterness also comes into play. Ah, another beer that drinks like a meal. This isn't a porter for wimps, as this has a huge taste. Despite all this, I would say that this isn't Stone's best beer.

pours a fairly opaque black with a nice khaki head that dissapears quickly. smell is of burnt coffe, toffee, woodsmoke and chocolate. Flavour was more subtle than i thought it would be. Starts of with a sweetness and finishes with a bit of a hop bite. Not alot of smoke on the palate however. I dont think i would have pegged this a smoke beer if i had not have known. the mouthfeel is silky smooth and the beer is nice and light on the carbonation. Drinkablity- this would go great with any grilled meats. I could definately see it with nice rich stew esp if the stew had a bit of bacon in it. Not a session beer but definately one you could savour during a meal

A- Deep Brown with and amber frame. Thin light beige head which is very bubbly. Dissipates rather quickly.

S- Good amount of smoke and sweet malts. Hints of chocolate and vanilla.

T- Very smokey backed by sweet malts. Hints of chocolate, caramel, some dark fruits, touch of hops to finish.

M- Smooth, medium bodied, decently carbonated.

D- Easy to drink, very satisfying. Another good offering from Stone.

Appearance: Dark brown, nice foamy head.

Smell: Sweet, smoky, maybe a little alcohol?

Taste: The initial tastes are of slightly smoky BBQ sauce, kind of hickory brown sugar. Later on, a little chocolate and coffee notes show up.

Drinkability: If it was available in MN I would probably have it fairly often. Reasonably priced and tasty.

I had this on a recent trip to Indiana. I have had this beer before, but didn't remember much about it. I was hoping for a little more smoked flavor but this was still a tasty brew.

Poured out of a 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black with just a tiny head that is quick to fade. Not really any lacing.

Aroma of consists largely of dark chocolate with a touch of coffee. The smoke is detectable but it is not overwhelming like some rauchbiers. All in all, though, I find the nose to be somewhat weak.

The taste more than makes up for the lack of aroma with tons of coffee and chocolate along with a decent dose of smoke. The smoke is much more noticeable compared to the nose and it compliments the other flavors nicely. It does have a slight medicinal note from the peat but it works. The moderate to high bitterness come in midway through and grows towards the finish and is quite noticeable on the roof of the mouth.

Overall I am impressed with this beer as I am with all of Stone's brews. The smoke adds a nice layer to a typical porter and makes this a really outstanding beer.
