Pours coffee black, with a slightly reddish cast like a dark chocolate when held up to the light. Decent tan head (1 inch or above) that laves good lacing though melts quickly.

Immediate dark chocolate/espresso notes with a slightly cherry aroma. Slightly oily mouth feel leaving a generally pleasant bitter chocolate aftertaste. Very smokey, but not overpowering.

This beer is such an easy drinker that I polish off a bottle before I even notice what I'm doing. A solid tasty dark brew.

Bottle into tulip.
Best before 08/27/2012

A- Dark brown, almost black pour with a two finger, soapy, sticky light tan head. Lacing is clinging in gobs around the glass.

S- Dark bitter chocolate, dark roasted coffee, a slight floral hop bitterness with a small amount of char, and tobacco. I'm not a real smoke beer fan and this one I feel is something you can use as a "beginners guide to smoke beers" I liked it so much last year I had to get another bottle.

T- Dark coffee up front, than an automatic smoke hits you. It's reminiscent of burnt toast and camp fire smoke. Not as sweet as the nose leads on but there is a bit of vanilla and bitter chocolate in the back end.

M- Medium bodied, slightly creamy. Definite chewiness to it.

O- I really do enjoy this beer. I think mostly because the smoke is not right in your face like a rauchbier. It's complimented by the dark malts and the other flavors.

Poured into a large brandy snifter. Pours dark brown to black with a creamy tan head that dissipates slowly. As is typical of Stone beer, there is plenty of lacing left on the side of the glass. Mild smokiness could be detected in the initial pour. The nose reveals more smokiness to accompany the dark roasted malt. There's a mild aroma of chocolate and hops. The smokiness is prominent, but well balanced along with the taste of the dark roasted malt and chocolate. The hops are faint in the background. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The beer is smooth, making this a highly drinkable porter. This is an excellent beer.
