4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Ah, Stone Smoked Porter. You tasty, tasty bastard, you. Iíve shared good times with your Vanilla-infused sibling, but youíre just as delicious all by yourself, arenít you? Wait, why am I starting this review by addressing the beer? Why did I think that was a good idea? Forget it. Stone Smoked Porter smells like coffee, chocolate, and smoke. It tastes like it smells. The peat character and acrid bitterness are subtle enough not to be overpowering but assertive enough to enhance the roasted malts. Mouthfeel is dry and robust. Honestly, I wasnít able to drink enough of this to make me happy. Smoked Porter made me a better person in the short time it was in front of me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 8/15/15 code date. Appearance: deep brown with a ruby undertone. Nearly opaque but clear under light. Light brown foam head.
Aroma: Roasted malt prominent, with a hint of smoked wood.
Taste: Medium malt sweetness, with a prominent roast character. Strong bitterness, and a light, leathery, woody, smoke character after the swallow.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body, almost a bit thin, with light carbonation.
Finish: chocolate roast on the finish, with a light smoke character that lingers retronasally.
Overall: A pretty solid robust American Porter with an underlying smoke character to compliment, not overpower.

Almost black color with a tan head. Mild smoked, toffee and coffee in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an ok carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Mild smoked, toffee, coffee and some chocolate in the flavor. Decent smoked ale even for me.

Bottle to snifter. Dark amber pour with a decent-sized off-white head thatís gone quickly. Chocolate, raisins, figs, salt and smoke in the aroma. Flavor is chocolate, figs, pine hops, some bourbon notes, and liquid smoke. The smoke isnít overpowering at all.
