UPDATED: APR 16, 2013 #300 - Smokey malty aroma. Tastes of raisins and sweetness. Pours black with a quickly dissipating big tan head. Not my favorite Stone.

Black, darker than usual for a porter. Aroma is weak and flavor is like a porter with thin mouthfeel, maybe even dry, and a very strong smoky flavor. This should be had with BBQ. Some chocolate I didn’t care for but also cola and a bit of hops to balance but not very bitter. Very malty and a bit of caramel.

Overhopped, bitter, somewhat rancid. I’m wondering if I got a bad bottle, because I cannot fathom how this beer is enjoying such a high overall rating on Ratebeer.
Yuck. Almost a pour-out. Tastes like someone dropped a cigarette butt in a bottle of Big Rock Traditional Ale.

22 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/4/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. This had a pretty mild smoked element to it & was pretty well balanced with the chocolate & Mike bitterness. Pretty nice overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, finally getting a chance at this. We get most of the flavored varieties here, but never the plain?! Anyway, deep brown beer, decent almond colored head, good lacing. Aroma dried plum, coffe, smoke, toasted barley. Taste is toasted barley, faint fruit, coffee. Palate a bit light, carbonation a bit sharp, for style. I like the hops at the finish, this is almost dry.

One of my favorite porters, don’t really drink many porters these days, this would be right on top of my list..

Incredible deal and wonderful aroma and taste of coffee and chocolate. Good and quite as heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth for a long while. Exquisite beer and enjoyable. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
