A bit to thin for me. I guess I should stick with the Imperial Stouts.

Not my favorite beer. Stone has many more smoked porters I like better.

Pours a dark brown Ruby with an off white head that mostly dissipates which leaves some lacing.

Nose has some chocolate, malt, and slight smoke

Taste follows nose and finishes with some bitterness.

A - Pours extremely dark ruby red, looks black unless you hold it to extreme light. Forms a nice finger of creamy head with nice whispy lacing.
S - Notes of malts, slight chocolate, coffee and a smoke that blends with the coffee.
T - Malts, touch of hops, black coffee, very dark chocolate with a very bitter after taste. Very delicious but I'm not finding much smoke even though it is a smoked porter.
O - A nice, strong sipping beer.
V - Medium.

At first glance this beer is black and foreboding. A closer examination shows it's really a deep, dark brown with some underlying crimson. The head is a frothy off-white finger of foam that stuck around for a good while. In time, some splotchy lacing remains, as well as a thin cream coating on the surface. A classic porter profile marries with smoke to create an interesting metallic aroma. Reminiscent of a burnt bread slice from the toaster. Faint chocolate notes and trace hops are present too. Very earthy. The flavor is a tasty mix of roast and sweet dark chocolate. There's a nice bitter kick in the finish with a distinct smokiness that lingers. You can almost breathe it in. The texture of the brew is pretty average. Medium mouthfeel with lively but controlled carbonation. Just right. Not overly complex, or potent, but discernible as a porter or light stout with some added flair. It leans toward the bitter, dry end of the spectrum, but never approaches puckering or unpleasant. I've had other porters that are silkier and more balanced, but this delivers in all the right ways for a smoked beer. Quite delicious.

Not a fan of smoked, but probably the best I've had.

Tastes a lot like Stone's Imperial Stout, just smokier and less on the bitterness. Goes down surprisingly smooth and has a nice black color.
