Get it? Cigarettes… Smoked… Smoked Porter… I’m like Jay-Z with these double entendres.
I believe I have already mentioned that Stone’s Smoked Porter is one of my favorite year-round porters, if not my favorite.
Deep opaque brown (might as well be called black) with a two finger creamy head.
Lots of roasted malts and coffee in the aroma, with some dark fruits mixed in.
The porter starts off as pretty sweet with the chocolate and ends with some nice light vanilla flavors mixed with some molasses. The slight smokiness is present throughout the sip.
Just like most Stone products: the right carbonation for the body.
