Stone Brewing
California, United States

Style: Smoked Beer

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

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.

this beer kicks ass, so damn good! pours black like a starless night and has a one inch lacing tan head. smells like a rauchbier, smokey as a raging bonfire, and roasty dark malty like a sturdy american stout. flavor is less intense than the nose, but its rich in the mouth without being too much. smokey again, with mellow hop bitterness in the finish. i cant do this beer justice in words, but i had the middle ages smoked porter 3 days ago and this absolutely destroys what i thought was an excellent beer. this is epic. so smooth and full bodied, but the aftertaste and the bellyfeel make this one of the best porters of all time. well done again by stone!!!

This one is very dark black.It has good carbonation that settles. SMells like roasted smoked chocolate.Taste is nonetheless smoky as well with hints of coffee and roasted chocolate.This is one of a kind if you are into this style of smoked porters.ALso would go well with barbecue.Enjoy.
