Pours dark, deep ruby, with two fingers of light tan head. Smell is sweet roasty, ashy. Taste is woody, earthy, ashy, slight sweetness, bread? Decent.

leave it to Stone to wallop you with flavor. i would think that mixing a smoked beer with vanilla wouldnt work, but somehow the sweetness of the beans and the charred wood flavors mix nicely. its also good that its not overtly smoky like some of the german ones are. very well done.

I didn’t know it was possible to improve on a great smoked porter but adding a hint of vanilla really does the trick. Does anyone make smoked ice cream?

ADfan (538) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Poured on tap from Aces & Ales during the Stone Tap Takeover. It has a dark brown color in th glass with a medium head. The aroma has some nuttiness, vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is very smooth. Very rich with smoke and the vanilla really comes through. There is a touch of sweetness like caramel in the flavor. Excellent beer on tap.

Frank (2387) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2012
This beer pours black w/ a small head and fine lacing.The vanilla flavor here is a bit overdone and this is overally a very sweet and cake-like beer. I am not much into it. Not w/o its good qualities but below average overall.

Black pour with a creamy khaki head. Vanilla, light smoke, creamy, and light roasted malts. Great on the palate, smoke, roasted malts, and vanilla.

Growler from the Stone Filling Station. Light brown head with a slight vanilla aroma. Similar nutty malty flavor as the original with a subtle vanilla which is nice and mellow. Makes you want to throw in a scoop of ice cream....

arminjewell (5717) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pour on tap at Muddy Waters, hazy brownish black pour with fluffy off white head, aroma brought notes of slight smoke, chocolate, coffee and roast, hints of vanilla and nice cocoa powder. Taste is a nice mix of sweet chocolate, caramel, hints of coffee, nice vanilla bean in there, finishes fairly bitter but nice and dry. Tasty stuff, but the smoke was fairly gone.

boxofrane (1878) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Draft Pours black with a finger of tan head. Aroma has that barbecue aroma with the vanilla following. The taste is lightly smoky with a sweet finish. The palate is pretty light and easy drinking.

On tap at Uber. Cola brown, with a full ead. Just an underlying hint of the vanilla with the normal nutty, smoky, earthy malts on the nose. The vanilla comes through a little more in the flavor, making this a sweeter brew than its non-vanillized brother, which I like better. Good stuff.
