This beer pours a clear dark brown with some ruby shining through it when held up to the light. There is a medium off white head that left some good lacing around the glass. This beer looks identical to the regular Smoked Porter. The aroma is dark roasted barley, bitter chocolate, and vanilla. The taste is noticeable with the vanilla but it is not overpowering. The smokiness is also very noticeable but also not overpowering. I also pick up chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is creamy and on the medium side. The drinkability is really high on this beer, I highly recommend you try it.

Pours dark with a mediun cream head Laces on the glass . Opaque.Big vanilla and caramel nose with notes of dates and raisins. Has a big raisin flavour with a little hop pinch many complex flavours which include dates, and earthly leafiness, sweet caramel and chocolate notes Too . Overall a wonderful complex beer, hoppier than normal in this style but all Stone Beers are. Great.

Wow... Great balance of flavors. Chocolate comes out more with the vanilla but the perceived sweetness is cut by the smoke. Mouthfeel is nice and soft. Love this beer!

Poured from bottle dark brown with a foamy head. Aromas of smoke and hints of coffee and vanilla. Taste is smokey and smooth with notes of vanilla and chocolate. A good offering.

Shot (206) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Pours black with a frothy white head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, licorice. Upfront flavors of creamy vanilla, then coffee, chocolate, gypsum, then biscuit and mild smoky tones. Finishes with a hint of licorice. Light mouthfeel. Not bad, but not fantastic or memorable.

Cirrhosis (1248) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
Beer is dark brown complete with a noisy tan very tall crown. Aroma is nothing special...... I feel sad now. Old coffee grounds, some chocolate, no trace of the vanilla in the nose. Maybe smoke....? I can taste vanilla, chocolate, mild smoke. Kind of watery. Clean finish. Excellent boring beer.

Pours a clear dark brown with a light brown head. The head is frothy at first but goes down pretty quickly. Aroma is lightly smoked with a light vanilla finish - slightly sweet smelling. The aroma is not as strong as I would have expected given the beer’s name and expected characteristics. I appreciate that this beer isn’t over smoked but the vanilla flavors is a bit sweet and overpowering. Overall, that flavor kind of ruins the beer for me.

Such a great beer. Poured into a glass. Little head. Smells delicious and the vanilla is prominent.
