Poured reddish brown into a cut pint glass. A nice head piled up quickly, then disappeared just as quickly with some decent lacing. The smoke was not overt, but was there like a distant fire. Coffee, chocolate, dark fruit and shoe polish dominated the scent. The taste was complex and shifting from sip to sip, slightly sweet at first, then bittering on the swallow, with again a light impression of smoke on the backside. I'd say this has more carbonation than most Porters, but this is not a detriment at all. Overall a great porter, if not a very smokey one, I'm impressed that I'm noticing nuances several sips in. Hats off to Stone, I need to track down the Smoked Porter with Chipotle now.
