4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Great aroma, with predominant roasted malts, milk chocolate, a bit of anise, toffee, cereal, and spring. Very nice. On the tongue, some bitterness, considerable (though not cloying) sweetness, and a bit of acidity. Intriguing and unique. Silky (suedy, if you will) mouthfeel, with a medium body (a bit on the thin side, even) and gentle carbonation. The aftertaste is initially roasted malts, tar, earthiness, and coffee, and after a while the honey becomes evident. The alcohol is very subtle at first, but as the beer gains temperature, it becomes more pronounced. I’m not the biggest Stone guy, but this is a winner.
@ Eddan 17-9-16: Torr kaffe, söt eftersmak, lite hint av bär i eftersmaken. Helt ok. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 6, 2017
This was a bottle share at the Grand Tasting at RBSG 2017. The nose here was complex and sort brought to mind the aromas the arise from a vegetable smoothy along with some floral and chocolate. Reminds me of the stuff you get from Scratch Brewing. Medium body. Flavor is a bit muddled, with citrus, vegetable, and something earthy. Finishes lightly bitter. Too much to analyze here but it tastes just fine. Unusual beer.

Bottle at RBSG. Dark brown pour with a thin brown head. Roasted malts, vanilla, and cocoa in the aroma? translates very similar to taste. A little heavier on the roastiness than sweet. Chocolate and mocha notes. A lingering bittersweetness. Missing the real big flavors of a typical Stone brew. dorain (652) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 28, 2017
Vom Fass Stone Brewing Berlin 2017-02 getrunken. Ein Samtporter also! Hmmm stimmt gaaaanz cremig weich am Gaumen kaum Bitterstoffe wenn man von der deutlichen Mokkanote absieht. Ein Leckerchen! SG111 (2033) - New York, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Bottled at Clubhouse BFD event. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, floral notes, honey, citrus. Nice. Flavor is roasted malt, bourbon, honey toffee, bitter citrus rind, kinda funky. Not bad. Perfectly fine.

Black pour with a huge frothy and creamy mocha head. Roast and red wine oxidation nose with dusty cocoa and dark bread malt. Sweet, malty, slightly roasty and herbal taste. Soft, round and velvety mouthfeel. Nose is over the top on the oxidation but the taste is still very nice with roast, bread, chocolate and herbal notes. wolfcarnival (289) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2016

Bottle at SMÖF, Singelbaren.
Pours black, offwhite head.
Aroma of cherries, oak, raisins.
Taste of grapefruit, bitter, sweet, nice, round, chocolate. Learninbeer (639) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2016
The aroma is coffee, roasty, malty. Pours almost black with light brown head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is sweet then a little bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very good!!
