  • Pours clear with a half glass of thick, tan foam. Retention is average or a bit better. Frothy as it recedes. Lacing doesn't exist in my pint glass.

    Aroma is really light with just a touch of peat smoke coming through. Some citrus hops climb on board late.

    Taste is sweet malt suppressed by smoke. The finish is a combination of smoke and peat while milk chocolate layers. The peat stays for a while but is always accompanied by a sweetness.

    Medium body with a light carbonation.

    Not a huge fan of smoked beers but this one isn't bad. One of the most drinkable that I have had. Still there isn't a ton going on with the beer but it is a good year old. Maybe age has stifled it original robustness. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • So you think you don't like dark beer? Prepare to believe. This is no ordinary porter. And if you are already among the enlightened who appreciate a fine ebony-hued ale, we think you will find Stone Smoked Porter to be a poignant addition to your repertoire. This beer pours a gorgeous deep mahogany crowned by a creamy head. Dark, smooth and complex, with rich chocolate and coffee flavors balanced by a subtle smokiness, this brew is equally delicious with meats or fine chocolates.
