Stone Smoked Porter Re-Review

CIMG5599

It’s actually been years since I’ve had this beer, but when it was recently shipped to my beer store, I grabbed a fresh bottle. You can read my original review here. I wasn’t impressed the first time I had it, but maybe it will win me over this time.

Stats:
American Porter. 5.9% ABV. 53 IBUs. California.

Fairly light colored porter with a lot of red coming through. Really nice head on here.

Not too much happening on the nose. It’s got only a hint of smoke, but it’s mostly a chocolate malty aroma.

The mouthfeel is quite nice. It’s fairly thick with a low amount of carbonation.

Again, very little smoke on here. It’s got a lot of chocolate, and a hint of coffee. That’s about it.

Really unimpressive for Stone. The smoke is barely there, and subtle isn’t really Stone’s game. 79 points.
