22 oz. bomber, served in a pint glass.

A - deep, dark brown in color with a big fluffy tan head that leaves a bunch of sticky lace.

S - roasted malt, coffee aroma.

T - sweet malty flavors and a gentle touch of hops, very good tasting brew.

M - medium/full bodied, smooth yet somewhat rich.

D - excellent drinkability because of lower abv and terrific taste.

Final Note: I enjoyed this brew with a medium/well bbq'd porter house steak and a baked potato. Highly Recommended.

Appears an almost completely lightless black, the tiniest amount escapes through when held up to light. One finger of white head turns into a relatively thick cap. A good looking glass.

Smells of smoked wood in front of typical porter smells of chocolate, caramel, sweet roasted coffee.

Tastes very good as well, the smoke isn't overpowering but definitely present to compliment the chocolate, cream, and toffee possibly?

Thin bodied and med to high carbonated, this is the right mix as a flat smoked porter would simply not work.

As for drinkability, I'll just say I won't have any issues finishing the bomber. A very good beer.

Had on tap at Bobbique in Patchogue, New York. Served in a pint glass.

I've reviewed the bottle version of this but I have yet to drink the tap version. The bottle of Stone Smoked Porter was one of my early favorites so I'm looking forward to this guy.

Look: very dark for a porter, almost black except some deep brown highlights when held to the light. The head is slightly off white. A bit of carbonation is visible but not a whole lot. Looks very good.

Smell: a bit of smoky malt but despite the name, not as smoky as one would think. Dark, roasted malt dominates with some dark chocolate, black coffee, and a bit of dark caramel is found in the nose. I'm struggling to find any hoppiness but that's perfectly fine by me. Very good.

Taste: follows the nose well. A bit of smoky malt but its very subdued. Black coffee, dark chocolate, dark caramel and those typical dark malt flavors permeate through powerfully with hints of hops. Absolutely delicious.

Feel: thick and creamy. Very full bodied for a porter and I love it. Great mouthfeel.

Drink: could very well drink this pint after pint. Great drinkability.

Overall, I haven't had this in a long, long time so I am glad I saw it on tap and had a chance to retry it. I remember absolutely loving this beer and it was one of the beers that got me passionate about craft beer. I am glad that my palate still appreciates this and that I was right about this one back in the day. This porter is incredibly flavorful and puts many stouts to shame in terms of flavor.

I still recommend this one whole heartedly. Give this one a go if you can! Cheers!
