Stone Brewing
California, United States

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.

Appearance- Black with ruby highlights. Thick tan head. Good retention. Decent lace.

Smell- Strong, rich malt. Toast. Smokiness. Faint fruity hops in background.

Taste- Nice, smoky malt in the foreground. Rich chocolate and black coffee. Some nuttiness. Very little evident hops.

Mouthfeel- Medium-full. Nice carbonation.

Drinkability- An excellent drinker. Rich, but versatile. Would be great with some grilled steak or burgers.

From a 22 oz bomber purchased at Mr. Bones in Greensburg.

Pours a near black with an off-white head that has decent retentions. Lacing appears along the the glass and lingers well.

Smell of roasted malts comes through immediately. coffee and some chocolate is also there. Hops give the beer a slight floral aroma. Smokiness is barely detectable through smell.

Tastes of dark coffee with a slightly bitter finish. There is just the right amount of hops in this one. The smoke flavor is not distracting as in other brews and compliments this version of porter very well.

Mouthfeel is excellent. Medium bodied with not too much carbonation. This brew clings to the palate just long enough to get the right amount of smokiness and malts.

At 5.9% abv, this is one of the more sessionable Stone offerings I have had. I could easily have a couple of these with no problems. This would be a good beer to pair with smoked meats and game. This is a natural choice for when I am in the mood for something other than a hop bomb.
