Tasting Notes

By Brewmaster Mitch Steele

Appearance

Pours deep brown with a rich tan head.

Aroma

A nice blend of vanilla and cocoa, with hints of yeast esters, coffee and smoke. As it warms, the roast character increases.

Taste

Vanilla starts off, and then mid-palate the cocoa and smoke come in. The finish has a slight vanilla astringency and a malty fullness.

Palate

Incredibly balanced and complex; smooth with a slightly dry finish.

Overall

Ever since Brewer Laura Ulrich suggested making a cask of Stone Smoked Porter with added Vanilla Beans back in 2006, this beer has been both a fan favorite and a Team Stone favorite. We’ve brewed many small batches of it over the years, and we’re always happy to make more!
