This Porter is brewed out of Escondido CA at the Stone Brewing Co. This beer is available year-round and it has a 5.9% ABV.
This beer pours a dark black color with a brown head that laces the glass. It has a nice roasted malt aroma that also hints at chocolate and some piney hops. There is a hint of “smoked” in the aroma however it is nothing that overcomes the brew. The taste of this beer is rather sweet as it starts off with the roasted malts. It balances very nicely with the slight bitter hop finish.
This beer carries a full body and a wonderful balance that I believe just about anyone could appreciate. Please pick this beer up if you like a good smoked porter. I truly believe that you will not be disappointed.
