Identical to standard Stone Smoked Porter except a spicy feeling on the tongue. Good if you want a very slight modification. JonLaRue (68) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 12, 2014
Stone Brewing shows how to make a porter and then do something crazy. Crazy as a fox. The aroma matches stones normal Porter, which is a great thing, a mix of, smoke, vanilla, coffee, caramel all in one. The appearance makes no attempt to hide the variety, this is a porter it screams. The taste is unbelievable. Its the normal smoked porter but then you feel something that tickles the throat. Then leaves you with a slow but inviting burn. This leads to a need to drink more to cool the mouth. Which is not totally necessary unless you hate hot things (why did you buy this then?). Best beer of the variety I have tried. Few will probably like this, but I loved it. Served out of a 1pt, 6 fl oz bottle, purchased at Schnuck’s Richmond Heights, MO.
