Smooth and rich. With coffee and chocolate. Just a little to much smoke flavor for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
it’s an average porter. poors a dark brown and minimal head and lacing. Aroma of smoked malt and coffee. There is a definitive hop presence in the taste and the malt, chocolate and coffee is an aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not my favorite porter, but I can’t say I’ve not enjoyed it. Pours chocolate brown, splotchy head, average lace and low carbonation. The aroma is smoky malt, coffee, caramel. The flavor is hoppier than many porters, the malt is more reserved (this is, after all, Stone). The coffee and chocolate mentioned on the label come through in the finish.

Smell of smoked malt. Black colour, beige head. Aroma of smoked malt, ash. Very bitter. Dry palate, ashy texture. Flat carbon.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bottle. Great, fantastic frothy head and lacing. An unexpected aroma, more malty than anything else. But the taste is as advertised, chocolate and coffee. Great finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
650 ml bottle.
Dark brown, bordering on black. Nice light tan head. Good strips of lacing.
Nose is very soft. Roast, earth, chocolate, earthy, slight smoke, and chalk. Odd.
Taste is very chalky. Like paste or eating chalk. Not very tasty. Little to no smoke. More like over hopped . rough to drink and hard to finish. Previous batches were much better. This was not.

4.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark, savoury aromas and flavours, with a bit of stewed fruits poking through. Well balanced smoked malt use it never becomes overbearing.
