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.

Bottle best before 2/26/13 poured into a Guinness tulip.

A: Dark brown, some red hues. Nice light brown head retains well, leaves patchy lace.

S: Lightly roasted malt aromas mixed with even lighter smoke. Some coffee, mellow cocoa sweetness.

T: Roasted malt upfront, in comes the ever so light smokiness, a good amount of roasted coffee and cocoa bean, finishes quite dry, theres a noticeable hop character as well but its subtle.

M: Medium feel and medium carbonation. Smooth feel and sessionable feel.

O: Nice roasty porter, not too much char or smoke which I like and a good dose of coffee and cocoa to balance the roastiness.
