Another great one from Stone. Not as much smoke as I expected but the coffee and chocolate played well with the more subtle smoke. While I never thought I would say this about a Stone beer it almost strikes me as delicate. Absolutely delicious.
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Tap @konttori. Pour black with medium brown head. Aroma has roasted malts, chocolate and smoke. Taste is very complex wuth lingering bitterness, but still very well balanced. Excellent! ALIBALI (2201) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2017

Bitter, roasty flavour with notes og hops and touches of coffee and yeast. Lingering, roasty aftertaste with estery hints. Not very smokey but good. martin00sr (4295) - Haderslev, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 Tap @F&H, Sdbg. Nearly black, seems clear, thick light beige head. Roasted aroma, faint smoke. Sweet, quite roasted, caramely flavour with light, woody smoke. Good, bittersweet lasting roast. MiP (15920) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2017 Draught, 5.9%. Roasted and vinous aroma. Very dark brown colour. Good stable light brown head. The flavour starts off roasted and vinous as well. Turns more roasted and bitter after a while. Very light on the smoke in my opinion. But good, especially considering the moderate ABV.

It's midday. It's sunny but it's cold. The flames are out but there's still a wisp of smoke.

Keg @Stone, Berlin. Pours black, slight tan head. Nose is chocolate, malty, coffee, slight smoke. Taste is coffee, sweet milk chocolate, smoke and slight peat. mieszal92 (243) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Draught. Dark brown with ruby reflections, with lovely beige head, lacing. Nose is, fuck, caramel, highly roast, toasted nuts, sweetness, can’t find this smoke, we do it much better in Poland. Mouth: dominated with dried red fruits (cherry, prune, with prune in the foreground), not too intense. Sweet, quite low bitterness, weak roast, moderate body.
Too watery, very low co2. Overall: not any masterpiece, can be. Proves no sense in drinking simple porters while you have baltic porter next to. This beer doesn’t know what real smoke is. oberschlesier (72) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - MAY 12, 2017
Aroma - ripe apple (it is definitely different than in cider, more pleasant) and very, very delicate aroma of smoke. So delicate that it ’s almost imperceptible. Beer is a little watery imo, but - at all - it may be good as a session beer. Cybuch (427) - Muszyna, POLAND - APR 28, 2017
W aromacie początkowo bardzo lekka wędzoność, lecz przypisałem to niskiej temperaturze, jednak taka już pozostała, opis piwa mówi o niej całą prawdę. Generalnie dosyć intensywny, przyjemny. Barwa ciemnobrązowa, piana kiepska, opadająca. W smaku wędzoność już jest intensywniejsza, piwo jest wytrawne, kawowe, umiarkowanie palone. Goryczka niska do średniej ,wysycenie w normie. Fajny klasyczny porter muśnięty wędzonką, jak dal mnie mogliby z tym pójść na całość, po piwo trochę bez charakteru.
