Thanks Jim (ratedz) for sharing one of these in a shipment you sent me. Served in a pint glass from a 12oz bottle.
A – Dark black in color, what is to be expected in an American Porter. About a one inch head that was coffee brown in color. Has a nice lacing also as you go down the glass.
S – Mild sweetness, some coffee, a good roasted malt as well.
T – Very balanced, a good dark rich roasted malt flavor comes first, add a decent bitterness. There is a little coffee and chocolate that dances on the tongue. Great malt profile from beginning to end, but there seems to be a good mix of dark roast and sweet malt.
M – Medium in body, with complimenting carbonation.
O – I don’t drink porters all that often, and I have grown to consider Stone Smoked Porter the best all around. This was pretty exceptional.
