Stone – 6th Anniversary Porter (Bottle) – 3.5 out of 7

Good news… this beer tastes ALMOST EXACTLY like the Stone 6th Anniversary Porter on draft. It is so similar that I am going to copy and paste most of my review of the draft below. I will say this however, … Continue reading

Stone – 6th Anniversary Porter (Draft) – 3.5 out of 7

Stone 6th Anniversary Porter tastes a good bit like all their other smoke beers. A little less smoky (4.5 smokestacks of smokepower taste) and more hoppy. It tastes acidic, which makes sense, this recipe is one of their old recipes … Continue reading

Stone – Smoked Porter with Chocolate & Orange Peel – 2 out of 7

Tons of slimy orange and brown globs in the bottom… Do I need to keep writing? You’ve already seen what flavors they’ve dumped into their marginally acceptable smoked porter beer, so I don’t know if I need to continue. The … Continue reading

I wonder if they knew about The Perfect Crime Co. in Scheldebrouwerij, Meer, Belgium before brewing this one? Because there’s a clone beer out there in the ether. Regardless, right at the opening of this I could not find any … Continue reading

Stone Brewing Co. – Smoked Porter – 5.667 out of 7 smokestacks

The best thing about this smokebeer is that it seems to be the most prevalent in the US. The worst thing is not enough smoke. Another good thing about this beer, $4.99 per bomber. Another bad thing, smokepower taste. Slight … Continue reading

Stone Brewing Co. – Smoked Porter w/ Chipotle Peppers – 4.3 out of 7 (better than ‘meh’)

As I’ve mentioned in other posts, I don’t like pepper beers. Nobody should be allowed to make them. It doesn’t make sense to mix the flavors of beer with peppers (although beer with smoke makes perfect sense to me). But, … Continue reading

Stone Brewing Co. – Smoked Porter with Vanilla Bean – 4.2 out of 7

You might look at this one and find yourself wondering “How in the world did this get a 4.2?” Isn’t that kind of high?” I’ll tell you how it got that high, Josh Fischer gave it a 7 out of … Continue reading
