Brewed by:
Stone Brewing
California, United States

Style: Smoked Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A porter with hints of chocolate & coffee balanced by subtle smokiness
First Release: December 1996

When first released, our smoky version of a traditional English porter was ahead of its time. Today, it's a highly regarded staple among craft beer fans and our go-to food complement, pairing effortlessly with all kinds of cuisine, from peanut butter and banana sandwiches to braised pork belly and apple pie. This worldly libation is dark, smooth and complex, with chocolate and coffee flavors suffused with subtle smokiness from the addition of peat-smoked malt.

Wow...I mean wow, what a brew.

A: Everybody gets the appearance right on their Porter. Grading Porters on appearance? A Porter looks like a Porter, period. No one ever misses, not even A-B. (!)

S: Beautiful. Everything Porter.

T: Holy Hell, this thing is immense. One hell of a roller coaster ride between chocolate, coffee, vanilla bean, licorice, and a bunch of things that go by too fast to recognize properly. Big, complex, and mystifying.

M&D: Sublime. Enough said...session at will.

The best Porter I've ever had...eclispses the Alaskan Smoked Porter with ease. Wow.
