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.

Stone Smoked Porter, on tap @ Kahootz in Meridian ID. Served in a pint glass.

A: Pours dark black but transparent on the edges with amber hues and a generous light tan/mocha colored head. Good lace.

S: Subdued smoke, roast coffee at the forefront, roasted malts, light smoked wood, milk chocolate notes. Very balanced and not too in-your-face.

T: Smoked malts, roasted character, light astringency and smoky dryness...definitely a subdued smoke presence, and I like that. Light earthy hop bitterness on the middle and back of the tongue.

MF: Medium mouthfeel, moderate bitterness, creamy and smooth...lingering dryness.

O: Pleasant enough smoked porter, I think I enjoy this more than the Alaskan offering.
