A: Dark, dark brown with a slight red tint when held to the light. Opaque would definitely describe this one. Small off-white head. Seemingly no carbonation. Looks good.
S: Deep smokey earthiness. Almost like the peat character to scotch ale. Almost sweet, but not in a malty way. A touch of booze backs it up with a subtle spicy note. Not overly complex, but spot-on.
T: Earthy and smoky upfront supported by a solid roasted backbone. There are hints of coffee, dark chocolate, and a touch of hops. The hops are aren't too strong but add a hint bitterness that compliments the roast nicely.
M: This one has a smooth medium-body feel. You wouldn't guess it from looking at it, but it has a good amount of carbonation that fizzes the tongue.
O: This to me is what a smoked porter should be. Robust porters aren't usually my thing, but this one was quite tasty and well balanced. Would definitely get this again, and I recommend trying it, strongly. This is my first taste of Stone, and I want more.
